Its carefully crafted character can be seen throughout, including the guestrooms which are contemporary, stylish spaces, with city views complementing the overall graceful ambience within.

The Palace Hotel, San Francisco, is known – and loved – for its eclectic mix of luxury hotel rooms and suites. Many enjoy trademark 19th century high ceilings as well as oversized windows, a fireplace in some and original features in others, though the décor is in fact decidedly modern throughout. Entry-level rooms can feel a little on the cosy side but still make great use of all available space, so happily fit in a king-size bed, walk-in rain shower (within their plush marble bathrooms), and other standards extras such as thick robes and slippers, a minibar, air-conditioning and flat-screen TV. Larger suites then feature a separate lounge, while throughout the categories you have a mix of views, either partially of the street, adjacent buildings or city skyline in the superior options.

The Garden Court Restaurant & Lounge
The Palace Hotel’s Garden Court Restaurant and Lounge is surely one of the most impressive-looking restaurants in San Francisco, situated as it is within the property’s grand, pillared atrium under an iconic glass dome. The décor is splendid, though so too is the food, an upmarket take on typically San Franciscan cuisine, seafood and occasional influences from the south. For something a little lighter, head here for an afternoon tea of sandwiches and homemade canapes.
This moody, wood-clad restaurant and bar is the perfect cosy hideaway in the evening, serving pub-style bites such as gourmet burgers alongside an impressive wine, cocktail and whiskey menu. The interior of Pied Piper feel historic and ornate, but the atmosphere within is far more laidback.
Activities and Entertainment
The Palace Hotel is within walking distance of many San Francisco attractions, including Union Square, Chinatown, the Embarcadero Ferry Building, various museums and galleries, the city’s famous cable cars and high-end shops, you can even take a tour of the property itself and learn it 19th century history. You then have Alcatraz, the Golden Gate and Oakland Bay Bridges, Coit Tower and Fisherman’s Wharf, to name just a few more San Francisco highlights.
Unusually for such a centrally located hotel, the Palace boast a luxe indoor swimming pool, Jacuzzi and gym, complete with glass ceiling and San Francisco views! It’s a stunning spot and real highlight of the property, though you’ll also find a host of boutiques onsite, concierge and dry-cleaning services too.
