Highlights

Key facts

Evidence of the Palace Hotel's old-world opulence can be found throughout the property, including at the Garden Court. This glass-domed courtyard was first designed in 1901 to be the hotel's carriage entrance. It has since been transformed into an elegant restaurant that serves brunch and afternoon tea. Lunch, dinner and cocktails are served at the Pied Piper Bar; a sophisticated mahogany lounge that still has its original 1909 mosaic tile flooring. The 1,744-square-foot Palace Hotel Pool, which goes to depths of 13 feet, can be found within the fourth-floor atrium. This area also features a fitness center, whirlpool and eucalyptus sauna. Visitors can enjoy the hotel's convenient downtown location, which is found just blocks away from San Francisco's Financial District, Union Square and Chinatown.

Dining

Pied Piper
Named after the famous Maxfield Parrish painting that graces this handsome room, the Pied Piper bar is warm and inviting. With its beautiful mosaic tile floor and rich oak walls, it is the perfect venue for casual dining and signature cocktails.
The Garden Court
The Garden Court celebrates tradition with a modern twist in what is known as one of the world’s most beautiful venues. San Francisco cuisine is offered for breakfast, lunch, Tea Time, Signature Tea, and à la carte City Brunch.
GC Lounge
The stylish GC Lounge is a vibrant, magical setting in a historic landmark. Meet and mingle or simply relax and indulge in luxury. Enjoy Tea Time in the afternoon or savory bites, signature cocktails, curated wines, and decadent desserts at night.

stunning

Would recommend Thu, Dec 17, 2015
In my line of business, I've easily stayed at hundreds of hotels - a number of them have been older properties that were renovated or remodeled. The Palace is a legendary property in San Francisco and could have cut corners when it was redone. They didn't. There are many old things to appreciate in the property and the rooms (e.g., really tall ceilings, classic fixtures and tile, stunning iron work on the staircases, etc.) while newer features round out the rooms. My room was spotless, roomy, highly functional and very convenient to my client. I'm a tough judge and it almost hurts me to say I can't find even one thing to nitpick.

Would recommend Wed, Dec 9, 2015
Gorgeous hotel. Good price for downtown San Francisco. Parking was $60 per night, which unfortunately is not that unusual for San Fran. Hotel dining room is fabulous. However, each meal is $60 for mediocre food and poor service. Enjoy the chandeliers but eat somewhere else.

Bachelorette Trip

Would recommend Mon, Aug 17, 2015
I notified the concierge about us being there to celebrate a bachelorette party because someone was going to have champagne delivered to the room, and I wanted to have it in the Garden Court instead. Unfortunately, the champagne was delivered to the room before they could intercept the delivery. No big deal. About 30 mins later, security knocked on my door and let me know that they had set up the French terrace with champagne and chocolate covered strawberries for our party. It was a WONDERFUL and delightful surprise as well as a perfect ending to our trip as it was our last evening there. The staff at the Palace was remarkable! Thomas Coleman(security), Riza(staff member), and the concierge(don't know name but was a gentleman) were wonderful. Additionally, the other staff members at the hotel were also extremely courteous and helpful. I will definitely be staying here the next time I visit San Francisco and will recommend it to everyone! Thank you!
