Will they have onsite parking?

When the Epiphany was being done, the justification for not having any parking was that Palo Alto is a transportation center with the train. Just as if the high-end customers of the Epiphany were going to take the train!

The city allows buildings with inadequate parking and then wonders why we have parking problems.

Perhaps the Nobu customers can bike to the hotel, carrying their luggage in a little bike cart.

Curious to know whether the Nobu owners convinced the owner of the Stanford Florists building to either lease or sell the building....since there was a sign on the building for such a long time saying that the building was not for sale. I assume that something was worked out to everyone's satisfaction, allowing the space to be used instead of remaining vacant.

If you check their website, helicopter service is available. No parking needed :)

Then there's limo service and Uber X.

Not sure why they promote Valet parking (cough, cough).

They already spent many millions renovating it, currently charge $599-$899 per night per room, and, they are going to spend millions more to upgrade it even further. Hilarious.

Wasn't Epiphany charging $10,000 a night at the top floor suite? Maybe the new high end would be $20,000 a night, complete with onsen tub.

"They already spent many millions renovating it, currently charge $599-$899 per night per room, and, they are going to spend millions more to upgrade it even further."

Then, per Palo Alto custom, they'll scrape the whole thing and rebuild it bigger within five years, with a luxury penthouse ADU to get a FAR bonus and relaxed parking requirements.
