What it isn't
A boutique design hotel.
What we think
With its grand opening in 1875, The Palace Hotel was undoubtedly San Francisco’s largest and most luxurious hotel. Now, fresh off of a renovation, the icon has been restored to its former glory, but with a classically inspired modern look. Public areas still retain their classic charm with crystal chandeliers, marble colonnades and rich gold-leafed accents. Upstairs are eleven storys of newly renovated guestrooms with fresh contemporary furniture and a palette of soothing grays and beiges. The 553 rooms and suites are comfortable and stylish; starting at 300 square feet, they are some of the bigger rooms in the city. Also on property is the gorgeous Garden court, which was once the open air carriage entrance for the original hotel. Recognized as one of the city’s most gorgeous rooms, it’s the perfect place to enjoy a signature afternoon tea pastry by chef Jesse Llapitan underneath the sun-soaked glass dome.
