Within walking distance of Union Square, Chinatown, Moscone Convention Center, and the Financial District, the Palace Hotel of San Francisco sits in the center of San Francisco. So, whether traveling for business or pleasure, the Palace fits the needs of every guest.
After the 1906 San Francisco earthquake destroyed the Palace Hotel, it was completely rebuilt. It reopened on December 5, 1909 with striking features, such as a stained glass dome with crystal chandeliers and Maxfield Parrish's mural, "The Pied Piper of Hamlin."
The 553 guestrooms feature vaulted ceilings, marble bathrooms, deluxe bedding and linens, and original architectural details. Other room amenities include 37" flat-screen TVs, windows that open, mahogany furnishings, complimentary bottled water, executive desks, laptop safes, and plush robes. The 34 suites include 30 one- or two-bedroom suites, the Chancellor's Suite, the Governor's suite, the Ambassador Suite, and the Presidential Suite each with original fireplaces.
By car the Palace Hotel is located about 20 minutes north of San Francisco International Airport. The hotel is within walking distance of Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Yerba Buena Gardens, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Golden Gate University, and The Contemporary Jewish Museum of San Francisco. Other nearby tourist sites include Dragon's Gate, Charles Chocolates Factory Store, Cable Car Museum, and Great American Music Hall.
