Here to Stay. The Legacy Continues.
San Francisco, Calif. – The Palace Hotel, a Luxury Collection Hotel in San Francisco reopened in 2021 after being shuttered since March 2020 due to the impacts of the global pandemic.
This momentous date marks the third time the grand dame hotel has reopened her doors since the hotel was established in 1875. In 1909, a new Palace was unveiled after being completely rebuilt following the devastation of the 1906 earthquake. In 1991, the hotel celebrated a long awaited reopening after undergoing a three year, 170 million dollar restoration. Now in 2021, the hotel makes history once again, proving the Palace is here to stay as its legacy continues.
Standing at the corner of Market and New Montgomery Streets, the Palace has long been an icon in San Francisco embracing generations of guests and global travelers. The reopening of the legendary hotel marks a significant moment as San Francisco welcomes travelers to the destination for summer exploration.
With a rich and storied past, the beloved Palace is known for creating unforgettable celebrations and signature offerings. While times have changed – the warmth, charm and authentic service of the Palace remain the same. "We are dedicated to providing a memorable Palace experience at all times" commented Clif Clark, General Manager, Palace Hotel.
