The Luxury Collection Hotels & Resorts with its owner partner, Kyo-ya Hotels & Resorts have announced the completion of the extensive $40 million renovation of The Palace Hotel. The San Francisco icon features redesigned guestrooms and reimagined public spaces, including the Garden Court.
“Entertaining generations of San Francisco’s most innovative social set, from Thomas Edison and Henry Ford to the tech titans of today, The Palace Hotel endures as the city’s most captivating destination,” stated Hoyt H. Harper II, Global Brand Leader, The Luxury Collection Hotels & Resorts.
“A new age of contemporary glamour has debuted at this beloved address, and the renovation of The Palace Hotel reinforces The Luxury Collection brand’s commitment to investing in our landmark hotels and to growing our global portfolio in destinations that our guests are clamouring to explore.”
Several grand suites have been introduced to the hotel following the renovation, including the Royal Suite and the State Suite. The Royal Suite spans almost 1,000 square feet with city views from curved windows that hug the corner of the suite’s living room. Architectural details, including an intricately carved marble fireplace, give the suite character and balance the palette of pale blue, plum and ivory textiles and furnishings throughout.
Similarly, the State Suite is designed to feel like an elegant San Francisco apartment with natural light that streams through large windows, classically-inspired contemporary furnishings, hardwood floors, lush custom-made area rugs throughout every room and a serene spa-like bath that completes this city retreat.
In addition to the introduction of several new specialty suites, the hotel’s Presidential Suite has also been refreshed. The six-room suite wraps around the northwest corner of the hotel’s eighth floor, overlooking Market Street.
