#155 of 248 hotels in San Francisco
Housed in an ideally located historic building in the heart of Union Square, Palihotel San Francisco offers 82 fully renovated and welcoming guest rooms and suites that have been carefully designed to appeal to a broad range of clientele, whether it be family and friends on holiday or business travelers attending a convention at the newly expanded Moscone Center. We’ve intended that this property be an homage to our loyal global tribe of inspired, distinctive and savvy clientele. We set out to curate a rich and diverse mix of classic and contemporary California-Centric styles throughout the property, highlighted by wood paneling, ceramic tiles, a delightful soft color scheme and mixed-matched furnishings and fixtures. Our reception, lobby, bar and dining areas are designed to be welcoming, communal and inclusive spaces that enhance the hotel’s authentic neighborhood feel. Our loft-style all-day restaurant, liquor bar and special event venue, Fisher Loft is located on the hotel’s 2nd floor and features approachable food and cocktails intended to encourage hotel guests and locals to mix and mingle morning, noon and night. And fun fact for movie buffs, the property’s back alley called Burritt Alley has a plaque dedicated to the death of the fictional character in the movie The Maltese Falcon. “On approximately this spot, Miles Archer, partner of Sam Spade, was done in by Brigid O’Shaughnessy”. Cashless property, A valid credit card, and ID are required at the time of check-in.

The hotel cancelled on me on very short notice because it was closed. I would have understood, if they have let me know with more time in advance, or at least, had instructed phone attendants to let me know of the hotel closure. Instead, they refused to give me more details and I had to call Booking.com just to find out about the hotel closure - a very simple factual information that would have helped to quickly rearrange my plans for the same day.

Hotel's Favorite
Upon arriving, we really enjoyed the exterior of the hotel. Cute plants and nice tiles. Throughout the stay, service for all the front desk staffs are attentive and warm. The overall value of the hotel is WORTH IT, considering all the high taxes in San Fran. In terms of the room,there are improvements that needs to be done in the room such as building a towel rack to hang towels, readjusting the counter above the faucet. The water was splashing everywhere and I couldn't wash my face properly. Overall, the room is neat and clean and hotel is located in convenient location. I would stay here again but improvement is highly recommended for functionality.

As soon as you walk into the Palihotel, you feel welcome & you just know it’s going to be gorgeous in the bar & your room too. And it was. All those lovely extras like a decent coffee machine, towelling robes & a very well stocked minibar, as well as a fabulous bed & superb shower, makes this hotel that bit more special. Wonderful staff everywhere & glorious bartenders made our stay perfect.
