The moment you arrive at the Palace Hotel, the magic begins. The streets are lined with trees, vintage lamp posts, and high-end retail shops. The 1909 Beaux-Arts building is accented by wrought iron filigree work, gold leaf embellishment, and angels that reside over every doorway. Inside, marble floors, coved ceilings, and soaring archways that embody the classic architecture of the Palace are accented with luxurious furnishings thoughtfully arranged to welcome guests. The colors of plum, charcoal, and dove grey paint the perfect picture on upholstered furniture and carpets. Deep mahogany wood is used throughout the Guest Reception, Concierge, and Bell Desk areas. Local art inspired by the wonderful city of San Francisco graces the walls. The Palace showcases three ballrooms, 44,000 square feet of function space with 23 meeting rooms and 4 executive boardrooms, a self contained conference area, and a full service business center. Luxury features include three famed restaurants; The Garden Court, GC Lounge and Pied Piper, 24 hour in-room dining, a newly renovated Fitness Center, and indoor pool. The breathtaking Garden Court with its glass dome atrium, Austrian crystal chandeliers, and Italian marble columns provides a dramatic backdrop for cherished celebrations. Born in the Golden Age of Travel and Commerce and occupying an entire city block in downtown San Francisco, the Palace has always been located in the center of progress. The Pied Piper, named after the prized Maxfield Parrish painting that takes pride of place, has been a favored meeting spot for a over a century. Just as industrialists of the past brokered deals among the deeply grained wood paneling, the pioneers of today's digital revolution share ideas and swap stories over artisanal cocktails. Originally established in 1875, the Palace was San Francisco's first premier luxury hotel and the largest in the world. Throughout her lifetime as a landmark of the city, the Palace Hotel has witnessed history and evolved with the times. With the introduction of the new Palace in 1909, the award winning 1989 restoration, and the modernization in 2015, the Palace remains a first in time and place.
