Stanford University’s campus lies one mile from Rosewood Sand Hill

Views of the Santa Cruz Mountains meld with Northern Californian architecture

When Rosewood Sand Hill opened in 2009, it soon became a popular destination in Menlo Park for Bay Area entrepreneurs and executives as well as residents and visitors. A stylish meeting place and hotel within Silicon Valley, Rosewood Sand Hill offers a resort-like experience close to the high-tech hub, Stanford University campus and some of the nation's foremost venture capital and private equity firms.

Appearing to meld with the surrounding landscape, the hotel's low-rise design is inspired by Californian architectural traditions. Large windows make the most of the natural light while sweeping terraces lead into landscaped flowering gardens, inviting guests to explore and experience nature on their doorstep.

Rosewood Sand Hill offers a comfortable and stylish retreat. Interiors are classic Northern California, mixing European elegance and tradition with the quintessentially casual, yet sophisticated vibe of the West Coast. Bringing the outdoors in, the warmth of California light is referenced in the color palette. Soothing neutral hues are complemented by rich wood tones of walnut, cherry, and cedar, which are integrated thoughtfully into architectural details as well as selected furniture pieces.

Throughout the hotel, the Rosewood Sand Hill Art Collection features exceptional work by accomplished artists, connecting the hotel with the local artistic community. All the works in the collection were chosen to represent the finest examples of contemporary creative art. Many of the artists have personal connections to Northern California and to the Stanford University campus in particular.

The art collection includes contemporary paintings, works on paper, fine art prints and photography with several large-scale, specially commissioned pieces showcasing the region’s spectacular landscape and raw natural beauty. On display throughout the hotel's public areas and accommodations, the artwork enhances the luxuriously welcoming environment of Rosewood Sand Hill, while reflecting the diverse sensibilities of the Northern California region.
