Built in 1875 to celebrate the West Coast boom, the Palace Hotel, San Francisco is one of San Francisco's most treasured landmarks. The hotel is located just blocks away from Union Square, Chinatown, the Financial District and the Moscone Convention Center. From the famed 1909 Maxfield Parrish mural “The Pied Piper of Hamlin” in our Pied Piper bar to the grandeur of The Garden Court to the sky-lit indoor pool, the Palace Hotel captures a timeless sophistication that is as distinct as it is inviting. Experience gracious hospitality on a grand scale in our 556 rooms and suites, evidenced by soaring 11-foot ceilings, original architectural details, crisp bedding, marble bathrooms, and a host of thoughtful and luxurious modern amenities.
Fantastic SF landmark...we never left the Hotel.
The hotel is stunning and the staff is so nice. I loved the history and the elegance of the place.
I liked everything.
I liked the overall appearance - the old world charm with today's amenities - great pool! the servic
The concierge staff were really knowledgeable & helpful. The room was big enough and the beds were comfortable. The location was good.
Housekeeping was inefficient. They do not have kettle for boiling water like how a typical 3-4 star hotel would offer. Lastly, they didnt give me a room till 3.45 which is 45 mins after hotel check in timing (total turn off as i travel with a 3mth old baby and we were roomless for abt 3hrs?). The 5 star rating of the hotel really didnt meet my expectation.
The staff was warm and welcoming. For a hotel in the city it was spacious. The location was great for walking around the city and visiting sites. Close to shopping and fine dining. Would stay there again and recommend to friends!

location seems to be the hub of the homelessness problem; we were harassed repeatedly by homeless persons at the entrance to the hotel. One man even followed us into the hotel to beg for money.
