    SF's Grande Dame #1! Such history - 1906 & Caruso, Woodrow Wilson, Warren Harding, even Khruschev. Even though the structure is a total replacement for the original destroyed in 1906, it retains the elegance of the Gilded Age. Attended many events and conferences here. Good service for same. Garden Court is breathtakingly beautiful. Yet to try High Tea or the Pied Piper's Lounge.

    Getting tea in the garden room was my grandma's favorite thing to do. Around Christmas time it is worth stopping by for the gingerbread contest and tea.

    I just stayed at the Palace for the first time. What a beautiful hotel. My favorite spot was swimming laps on the 4th floor in the Palace's indoor heated pool. I may not have assisted with the Treaty of Versailles in the Garden Court restaurant, but I swam 15-20 laps there each day of my stay, something Woodrow Wilson couldn't do. (The pool was added in 1989).

    I slept like a queen in a double bed that I hated to leave behind. The comforter and allergy-free down pillows were heavenly. (I wonder if Tony Bennett ever sang "I left my bed in San Francisco" following a stay here.)

    Great location. Close to the union square hustle but not too close to be crowded. Close enough to Chinatown to walk. Easy to get to the wharf and pier 33 as well. It is expensive, but rooms can occasionally be had for $179. I would definitely stay here again if I could get it for the right price.

Description

Only a handful of hotels in San Francisco deserve the moniker 'icon,' but the Palace Hotel is at the top of this list. The world's largest hotel when it was opened in post-Gold Rush San Francisco in 1875 and rebuilt after the 1906 earthquake, the Palace has seen its fair share of history (including the death of both President Warren G. Harding and the last reigning king of Hawaii). The exquisite stained glass ceiling and chandeliers above the Garden Court have feted afternoon tea and dining guests for over 100 years. However, the Palace Hotel has thoroughly modernized over the years. In a coveted location a short walk from the financial district, Moscone Convention Center, Union Square and AT&T Ballpark, the Palace Hotel has a fully equipped business center, concierge services, an indoor heated pool and services for business meetings in several conference rooms throughout the hotel (as well as fantastical weddings in the Garden Court). San Francisco locals have been drinking their whiskeys and martinis at the famed Pied Piper Bar for 100 years. ... read more
