we were in area for my husbands surgery at Stanford. I was by myself for a couple days and one night. I felt perfectly safe as the attentive young lady who worked the front desk put me close to lobby. I appreciated this as I was apprehensive to be in a strange town and under this stressful circumstance. Everything was neat and clean. They went out of their way to follow the Covid rules. Thank you so much.
