I stayed at the Palace Hotel for the last two nights of my four night trip to San Francisco. The Financial District location is excellent, with the Montgomery Street BART/Muni station right on the corner. I reserved the lowest category of room (Superior), which was still a good size, but just overlooked the windows of other rooms. As a historic hotel, the room layout is different than expected. You walk directly into the bedroom area, with a spacious bathroom off to the side. The evening turn-down service was a nice surprise, with chocolates and a bottle of water left on the nightstand. The charming decor was a great blend of old and modern features. Definitely eat breakfast at the Garden Court once during your stay. It is a very impressive room and the buffet has an extensive selection. The indoor pool was quite large and very popular with families. Their fitness center was also well above average. I would definitely return!
