Travel Information


Stanford is roughly equidistant from the San Francisco and San Jose airports. Three major airports serve the San Francisco Bay Area, including San Francisco International (SFO)San Jose Mineta International (SJC), and Oakland International (OAK). Although San Francisco is the largest of the area airports and offers the most airlines and flights, some visitors find that San Jose’s smaller size makes it a somewhat more convenient alternative, especially for domestic flights.

Where to Stay

Visit Stanford's lodging guide which includes website links, rates, and contact information of local hotels, B&Bs and motels.

Stanford has two properties for lodging:

  • Rosewood Sand Hill offers luxury accommodations at special rates for Stanford visitors, as well as a spa and fine dining restaurant.
  • The Stanford Guest House, on the grounds of the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, is an economical favorite of Stanford visitors.
