First opened in 1875, Palace Hotel is a San Francisco icon – it was the first luxury hotel to be built in the city, and at the time was the largest in the world. The elegant Victorian facade hides a newly renovated modern interior, while the downtown location is super convenient for all the major sights including Chinatown, the shops and department stores of Union Square, and the famous cable cars that run up and down the hilly streets.
There are several categories of rooms at Palace Hotel San Francisco, each with a different designer decor and colour palette. The Superior rooms are light and airy, with layered textiles on the bed, marble bathrooms and contemporary padded headboards. The Deluxe rooms have elegant plasterwork on the walls and ceilings, and the suites have distinct living and bedroom areas. All of the accommodation has large-screen TVs and free wifi.
Amenities at Palace Hotel San Francisco include a swimming pool and gym, and a concierge service that can book theatre tickets or arrange sightseeing tours. There are also shops including a premier ice-cream parlour, a high-end fashion store and a jeweller. Beyond the hotel, there is so much to see in this cosmopolitan city, including museums, parks and the eerie Alcatraz Island.
Palace Hotel San Francisco has two restaurants – Garden Court is a stunning space of grand pillars and chandeliers, where the signature tea is a timeless luxury; and Pied Piper is a sumptuous and intimate dining room serving burgers, salads and steaks surrounded by wood-panelled walls and a huge painting depicting the pied piper legend, which has been at the hotel for over 100 years.
