We have sold out of the hotel block at the Westin Palo Alto for IPSC. However, you can still contact the hotel and request the Stanford rate which will give a discount on the best available rate.  You may also inquire with the Sheraton Palo Alto, located next door to the Westin Palo Alto, which also honors a Stanford rate. You will be able to utilize the conference shuttle which will be right outside the hotels.
