Book Today: Opulence in San Francisco for $126 a Night at The Palace Hotel

March 30, 2009 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

The Palace, San FranciscoToday is the last day you can take advantage of a special offer at San Francisco's lavish Palace Hotel, a member of Starwood's Luxury Collection. Save up to 50 percent with "Better Tomorrows": Book one night and your second night is half off, for stays through September 7, 2009. This translates to $126 per night at the hotel deemed the largest, most luxurious and costly in the world when it opened in 1875. Envisioned by William Chapman Ralston and William Sharon, The Palace Hotel was designed as the American counterpart to the grand hotels of Europe. The American public went gaga over the building's majesty: 7,000 windows, 14-foot high ceilings, hydraulic elevators (an engineering marvel for the time!), and splendid Garden Court-- the glass-domed courtyard with towering Italian marble columns, Austrian crystal chandeliers, and gold leaf sconces. Today the hotel has been lovingly restored and boasts a central location adjacent to the Financial District.
