San Francisco has its share of historic hotels, and the Palace Hotel is one of the largest ones. It is really palatial, it has grand public rooms and long hallways to rival many palaces in Europe. I had visited a few times over the years and here are a few pictures. I always enjoy it there, they sure don’t build them like they used to. If it has been recently renovated. I do have a preference for historic over modern hotels if I have a choice. I have never stayed the night, and hope to stay here if I get the chance.
Below is the French Parlor room that over looks the famous Garden Court. Its classic interiors are grand.

That is me looking and waving to my friends in the Garden Court.
The main hallway at the Palace Hotel. The proportions are true to its name.
Pied Piper Bar in the hotel has an famous painting by Maxfield Parrish “The Pied Piper of Hamelin”. The painting below with my glass of wine. New York’s St. Regis – King Cole Bar has another famous painting by Parrish.
In 2013 the hotel tried to sell the painting, but decided to clean it and put it back. There was considerable backlash at the news of the plans to sell it.
