I really wanted to like this hotel. This hotel has history, a lot of history. As with anything that has "history" it is old and sadly not well maintained. The last time the hotel had an overhaul was 1993, so needless to say it needs to be updated & revamped. It is also part of the Starwood Luxury Collection, but... More

We had a wonderful time staying at this very nice historic hotel. The rooms were fairly spacious and still relatively well maintained considered it's age. We did have problems closing the windows completely and we did call maintenance who could not fix this issue during our stay so that we did hear traffic noise at night even though we were... More

I have stayed at this hotel multiple times over the past 15 years.... while I love the hotel and its history.... the hotel really needs a fresh makeover. The staff is friendly, helpful, and treated me well. The problem with the hotel is the nasty carpet. It extends beyond the hallways and into the rooms. There are other small issues... More

A good business hotel with convenient location for market street and decent facilities. The room was spacious and the bed comfortable. Bathroom clean and sufficient. It generally a good hotel of a certain era which works well if you're in town for a limited period. I didn't stretch the services too much.

The Palace is a very nice hotel. Like the Waldorf Astoria in New York, it features all the nice touches you'd expect from an old school, high-end luxury hotel. High thread count sheets, nice amenities in the bathroom, etc. My only complaint is that the room feels just a bit dated. The windows are old and a bit rusty, the... More

I like old hotels with character. I also like new hotels with contemporary style. This is an old hotel without character or style. I am sorry that I booked here. The room is decorated in a manner than I can only describe as Stark Eastern European. Nothing particularly matches. The furniture is totally generic. There is no closet and no... More

Staid here recently for three nights - overall nice experience. Pros: 1) Very nice old style public areas: The Garden Court (where breakfast is served) is impressive and has a very beautiful stained glass ceiling 2) Great breakfast: High quality fresh fruit, nice selection of pastries. 3) SPG recognition: As SPG platinum member, I received an upgrade to a nice...

Stayed at the hotel on the second of april, The room had very little character compared to other Luxury Collection properties I have stayed at. Beds were comfortable and bathrooms were well kept. Room was very clean but are showing signs of age and wear. The hallways and public spaces are very grand, but you don't sleep or unwind in... More

The Palace Hotel in San Francisco was a great place to attend a conference. The Garden Court is a great place for a business meeting or a friendly meal. Unlike anyplace else I've met for business. The concierge was very helpful in working out an issue we had with the rental car, and the staff was a perfect mix of... More

We stayed here for a night in San Francisco at the end of a fortnight's skiing, ostensibly just to have a nice meal, see a bit of the city and save ourselves a long drive to the airport the next morning... ... which makes me glad we weren't gunning for top luxury. The hotel is fine, but not exceptional (although... More
