The Palace Hotel, located just blocks away from Union Square, Chinatown, the Financial District and the Moscone Convention Center, is as much a place to see as it is to stay. This historic, 1875 structure is opulent beyond compare. Grand chandeliers, colorful murals, stately halls and the iconic Garden Court have made the Palace Hotel a favorite with the well-to-do for over a century. From the famed 1909 Maxfield Parrish mural "The Pied Piper of Hamlin" in the Pied Piper Bar to the grandeur of the Garden Court to the sky lit indoor pool, the Palace Hotel captures a timeless sophistication that is as distinct as it is inviting.
