The room was beautiful, the staff was extremely polite and helpful. The lobby is really stunning and it makes you feel like you are in Europe. My kids enjoyed the pool. It was a great break for them after walking the city all day. They also loved the fact that there is a Ghiradelli ice cream shop attached to the...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 18 December 2016

If you love history, you will love the Palace Hotel. Everywhere you look in this beautiful place-you will see a luxury hotel of San Francisco of the late 1800's. The chandeliers, the woodwork, the columns, the restaurants. the stairs and lobby are breathtakingly stunning. We recently stayed for my husband's birthday and everyone from the car valet on did their...

Visited for Sunday brunch with my dad on April 2nd. The selection is amazing and the quality of food as well as the service is exceptional. There was fresh fruit, parfaits, 6-7 hot food options and an extensive selection of pastries with all sorts of dips and jams. My favourite sunday brunch in SF so far.

The Palace is just one of those places you should walk through, or stay at, at least once. Beautifully kept, well appointed rooms and a gorgeous garden court on the first floor. The staff makes you feel welcome, and are generally very helpful. The loss of a star due to clock / radio being so dim it was unreadable. Could...

The room was beautiful, the staff was extra polite and attentive. We had a view of Montgomery street from the room and the hotel is easily accessible from the BART. All of the typical tourist destinations such as the Ferry Building and Fisherman's Wharf are only a short walk away. I would definitely stay here again. Thank you for the...

We travel to SF all the time and found this hotel one of the most charming places. The property is old but completely redone and updated. There's that old world charm with the hallways and the garden room. We'd like to see the hotel offer free Wi-Fi but loved the bathroom upgrades and the heated toilets! I would say that...

Palace Hotel has all the trimmings of a truly grand hotel. The interior has been recently renovated and remind you of the standard you see in the old European palaces. But Palace Hotel is not a real 5 star. Despite the fantastic building the hotel functions more like a 4 star chain hotel, i.e. there is a que in front...

We stayed for a week. We arrived at Christmas time. The hotel was beautiful and elegant everything you would expect of a grand hotel it was beautifully decorated for Xmas. Beds were so comfortable slept great after such a long flight. . It was centrally located and right next to the train station. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
