Excellent location and, boy, are those beds comfortable but somehow feels like it's an historical attraction which has had all of its charm squeezed out. I was upgraded to a double king deluxe, which was pleasant and mercifully soundproofed despite facing on to Market Street. If only the same could've been said of the soundproofing between bedrooms: I was treated to an extended soundtrack of a couple staying next door who, how can I put it, were delighted to be spending some private time together. The indoor pool was a real boon for swimming off a serious bout of get lag.

Only the best for this princess!
The Palace Hotel in San Francisco! Located directly in front of the BART. Easy to get to if you're coming from the airport.
It's in the middle of everything. And, for those nights when you're out late and everything seems to be closed... McDonalds is right next door.
I didn't have any problems staying at this hotel. No bugs, dirty sheets, or dirty/loud neighbors. You couldn't even hear them.
Also, the beds weren't bumpy all over like another review said.
Favorite spot in the hotel: The Garden Court. So pretty. I feels like you're in a castle.
Good price. Good service. Easy to get to. Great breakfast buffet. Short walk to the pier. Prime spot. What more can you ask for?

Waking up in this hotel every morning I was in San Fransisco definitely added a lot to my experience! It is a gorgeous place to leave at the beginning of your day and to return to at the end. It's also in a great location; walking distance to any kind of transportation, Union Square is right around the corner, and of course right on Market Street!

My favorite hotel in San Francisco. It has the history, the beautiful lobby and an amazing bar. Plus, great room and a wonderful indoor swimming pool. It's in the financial district, with easy walking to Moscone for trade shows. I wish I could stay there every time I go to San Fran. I'm always on the look out for great deals.

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.

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.)
