Located steps from Union Square and the Financial District, the Palace Hotel is an ideal point from which to explore the charms of San Francisco. Culture enthusiasts will want to visit the lovely Yerba Buena Gardens with their waterfalls, Martin Luther King memorial and enchanting butterfly gardens. Indulge in some stylish shopping at Union Square, the Embarcadero Ferry Building, Maiden Lane, such indigenous shops as Gumps, and the nine-level “Westfield” Shopping Center, a few blocks away.
A San Francisco must-see, Chinatown beckons with its vivid diversity of language, cuisine and culture. The historic cable car ride is an utterly original means of getting around town – take a ride to Fisherman's Wharf, or visit the Ghirardelli Building.
Our Concierge recommends the following as unique places to explore in the local area:
- Filbert steps by Coit Tower: Enjoy unsurpassed views of the San Francisco Bay and Golden Gate Bridge.
- The Flower Conservatory: A superb green house collection of plants and flowers housed in Golden Gate Park.
