We like to spend the day after Thanksgiving in the City to soak up the holiday atmosphere, and we usually stay at the St. Francis for its location. This year the Palace and we were glad we did as it is walking distance or easy public transit to get to shopping, museums, restaurants. It is part of the Starwood system and accrues points also. The room was comfortable, a fair size, well lit (lots of light for reading!), and the bathroom had ample room for my and my husband's toiletry kits as well as a magnified mirror. This is a gorgeous hotel - beautiful public rooms, a historic bar, and the best place to indulge for brunch in the city under crystal chandeliers. If you have the afternoon tea in the Garden Court you will believe you are in London. Everyone was so polite I felt like a queen.
