We went to Palace for a thanksgiving weekend SF trip, and rates were pretty good. We got connecting jr suites and it was roomy. We haven’t stayed in a downtown hotel for ages, so I’m not sure what’s normal, but you could hear some car honking through the window. Not too much noise from the hallway. The rooms are well appointed with high ceilings, soft sheets, slippers, fridge, and even board games. However the thermostat wouldn’t heat the room above 72, and my family likes to sleep at 75. The indoor pool is nice but the jacuzzi was under repairs. The ground floor breakfast restaurant was tasty and kid friendly. The elevators are old and small, but we rarely had to wait over 30 seconds for the next one. Most people were masking and the hotel did check for proof of vaccinations, which made us feel better. Valet parking was $72 per night, oof. The location was very convenient and the staff were all super nice and professional. We’d probably come back if the rates were good.

Hi I am still staying in palace hotel The service is awful,they don’t serve lunch in hotel They close breakfast 30 minutes sooner because they can’t manage the guys whime stay out for breakfast,the room dining is only for breakfast and also takes 50 minutes to bring breakfast and for pancakes they don’t have even strawberry and nutella unbelievable!!!! There was some vibration noise in the room that I staying,It might come from the old pipes of the hotel itself or the fridge. But it’s really hurts fir sleeping I asked the receptionist that i want to talk with the hotel manager but she said give your number he is not available now but he didn’t call me!!!! I payed too much for NO SERVICE!!!!!really shameful

Booked on the Marriott site, make sure if you select the AAA member rate (to my pleasant surprise at check in this included free parking ($72 per day normally for valet) and $25 per day credit for onsite restaurant and bar. Hotel is beautiful when you walk in. Rooms are comfortable, clean, updated, and roomy. The hotel itself is in the financial district vicinity and there seemed to be a lot of business people staying there. Chinatown and Union Square is close and it's about a 25 min walk to Fisherman's Wharf. There are some shady areas depending on where you head so be mindful. The areas mentioned are fine to walk to. Great hotel would return.

Beautiful grand hotel. But that's all that was positive. Got an email a few days before stay asking to share itinerary and preferences. No response was received to my detailed email at all. Chatted on marriott app to request preferences, but everyone seems to be busy trying to sell upgrades instead of looking to fulfill any preferences. Booked with Amex FHR, front desk staff seems overworked and disinterested. So called "upgrade" was a smallish room with a nothing view. No coffee in the room. No dining options in the afternoon at all. Only one restaurant "Pied piper" for dinner, and again, staff seems overworked and disinterested. Very very limited menu with staff denying any special request (like no cheese). Forget about getting anything if you are vegan like me or even vegetarian. Overall, only luxury in this hotel was in looks. Service was disappointing, to say the least.

The Palace is aptly named. It feels quite royal. There are always multiple doormen minding the regal entrance. The lobby is gorgeous, as are all the public spaces, which are large. Our room was very nice, with lots of crown molding. Only downside is no coffee maker in the room, and no morning coffee service in the lobby.
