The Palace Hotel | San Francisco, CALIFORNIA USA

What can I say about a hotel called The Palace?

From the second that we arrived at the hotel, I was in awe of its grand interior. With the Muni Metro station located literally at its doorstep, I couldn't think of anywhere better to stay during our visit to the City by the Bay, San Francisco.

Check in was efficient and pleasant (which we came to understand was a trait of all of the wonderful people of this beautiful city). The hotel is full of nostalgia and we had the added bonus of staying there during the Christmas season which meant that it looked especially wintery. The hotel is not particularly large and despite booking a junior suite the entire experience felt cozy.

The suite has a comfortable bed, plenty of windows that overlooked busy Montgomery Street and a small but useable bathroom. The extra living space provided in the suite was useful given our two large suitcases but there were plenty of little extras provided in room that you would expect from a luxury collection Starwood hotel (boutique bathroom amenities, a coffee maker and an umbrella for those rainy San Francisco days just to name a few).

Our time was limited in this beautiful city but the front desk staff were accommodating in our request for an early check in and stowed our bags well after check out given our late flight out. Concierge were also helpful with printing out our flight boarding passes and providing recommendations for local food and transport options.

All in all, the hotel was a gem located in the heart of the city and only a short walk away for the central tram stop. It is the perfect place to stay if you are longing for a taste of the old San Francisco.

PS. did I mention that Ghirardelli Chocolate is located on the Ground level of the hotel?
