Palace Hotel San Francisco
2 New Montgomery Street
San Francisco, CA
The Palace Hotel San Francisco opened its doors on October 2, 1975, to reveal a hotel of unparalleled luxury. Towering 7 stories above what was then a mere dusty frontier town, it heralded San Francisco's coming of age. Today, after a landmark restoration, the Palace still proclaims San Francisco's role on the world stage. True to refinement of a bygone era, with vaulted ceilings, ornate gilding, and Austrian leaded crystal chandeliers in the Lobby. A history that mirrors the city's own, as host to presidents and royalty, giants of industry and pillars of society. Columns soaring above marble floors towards luminous stained glass, and a menu as elaborate as the gold leaf scones and mirrored doors in the Garden Court. Embracing East and West; centuries-old recipes from authentic Japanese cuisine and unexpected fusions in Californian fare.
