All-Inclusive Indulgence

The Clement Hotel is an under-the-radar gem of a boutique in Silicon Valley.

It is favored by venture capitalists, entrepreneurs, and visiting Stanford

professors, who fill its 23 posh suites. Guests seeking rest and relaxation

are treated to six-star service, a level of hospitality that differentiates The

Clement from other hotels—all-inclusive service. That means meals, snacks,

cocktails, wine, and even gratuities are included in the room price. There

is no other place like it in the Bay Area, and for those seeking a decadent,

indulgent getaway, there is no better spot.

Your introduction to The Clement takes place a few days prior to your

scheduled arrival, when an email query arrives, asking about your preferred

beverages and snacks. Staff will have your favorites waiting for you. You

needn’t be shy about any special needs or requests, as The Clement aims to

please. No detail has been overlooked at this luxurious, private residentialstyle haven where nearly every wish is the staff’s command. The Clement’s

spacious one- and two-bedroom suites offer modern, sophisticated comfort,

with carefully curated amenities of the highest quality, including Matouk®

linens, Frette® towels and robes, two 65” Samsung IPTVs, Nespresso®

VertuoLine coffee machines, electric kettles, and stocked refrigerators.

Spacious, stone-lined bathrooms feature heated floors and toilet seats,

large soaking tubs, rain shower heads, in-mirror televisions, and luxe olive

oil bath amenities by ODE Natural Beauty. Sleek window shades open and

close with the push of a button.

Enjoy breakfast, lunch, and dinner prepared by the hotel’s presiding chef

in the open kitchen. The seasonal menu changes based on both market

availability and guest preferences. A guest pantry—open 24 hours—features

an ever-ready selection of homemade cookies and a freezer stocked with

Palo Alto’s artisanal Tin Cup Creamery ice cream. Help yourself to a steaming

mocha, latte, or cappuccino. If you are celebrating a special occasion or a

successful business transaction, champagne will be waiting on ice. Enjoy

your repast in the dining room, the outdoor dining terrace, in a cabana at

the private rooftop pool deck overlooking the Stanford campus, or in your


Art-filled and urbane, The Clement is owned and operated by Pacific Hotel

Management and is named after its president, Clement Chen, a seasoned

hotelier who has used his exacting standards to fashion a superior retreat

that pleases the most discriminating traveler. From office supply-stocked

desks to a state-of-the-art fitness center to sunglasses and sunscreen

offered poolside, Mr. Chen has included everything to make your stay

indulgent and memorable.

The Clement is within walking distance of the chic shops and restaurants

at Town & Country Village and Stanford Shopping Center. The Stanford

campus provides miles of walking and jogging trails, and the rooftop pool

and Jacuzzi® are heated to just the right temperatures. If you feel like

stepping out for a meal, hotel staff will recommend any number of lauded

eateries within proximity. But the beauty of a stay at The Clement is that

you need not leave the property to experience the allure and energy of

Silicon Valley. That, too, is all-inclusive.
