I'm staying at the Palace now. It's Continental with an $8 additional charge for full breakfast.

Thank you. This sounds like the continental offering at the Westin Bayshore. I haven't had a better continental offering in North America except maybe the St. Regis Bal Harbour and that is only because of mimosas being included. Are there numerous hot choices for the full buffet? Usually, the hot portion only includes eggs, some type of pancake/waffles, and potatoes. It's never enough of a choice for me to buy up but I hear good things about the Palace .

Numerous choices; blintzes, french toast, potatos, eggs (hollidaise), oatmeal, bacon, sausage, probably other stuff too (like pancakes). I believe you can get egg white omelet upon request from the kitchen.

All of that is NOT included in the continental breakfast.

Palace Hotel, San Francisco 2006 - [Master Thread]

Just received a confirmation that my SNA is now approved - upgraded to deluxe suite. I will be there next weekend and will sure post some pictures

The hotel website doesn't seem to have that many photos of the room...

Sorry for the old bump, but here's a better article. The Presidential Suite, Room 8064, changed room numbers to the current Room 888 during a renovation, but it still occupied the same floor space. So for those that stayed across the hall (or in the Presidential Suite), a United States president died in that area.

Just added a review on mightytravels.com. Really liked that place!

Btw the waiters at the Garden Court said - full breakfast when presenting my voucher. But the front desk said continental. This may be a YMMV thing.

Stayed there a couple of days ago. I got the information if you're only one person with the Platinum voucher, they give you the full breakfast for free.

I really like the charm of the hotel, but unfortunately got no upgrade.

It's worth repeating that the Palace does a fabulous job with the Platinum breakfast amenity, even if one is limited to the continental.

It's unfortunate that the sister properties (similarly owned by Kyoya Corporation) in Honolulu aren't similar in their offering.

Stayed earlier this week

Room was more spacious than the room we had at W last weekend.

Hotel is older but I like it. Felt like we where staying in a part of history..

I'm just a Gold and was on an award stay. Nothing remarkable, either good or bad, about the stay

Beds where REAAALLLL comfy and bathroom was huge.

Staying here for a night. Great upgrade with SNA to a "Chandelier Suite". Really like this hotel.

99.9% of the time I book the St Regis, but there was a prepaid rate of $169 for fri and sat of this weekend at the palace that I booked. Upon check-in, I was upgraded to the presidential suite (room 888). The room is absolutely humongous. They gave us 2 drink vouchers since the room wasn't ready at check-in, and we had to wait 15 mins. Took breakfast as the plat amenity. So far, an exceptional stay.

Is it the yellow line on the BART to get to the Palace from SFO?

I stayed at this hotel over New Years and found my BMW damaged when the valet parked the car. He then tried to blame it on me and say that I must have done the damage....despite the car having been fine when I handed him the keys. I battled with the hotel for months trying to get them to at least give me some starwood points for the $2,000 of damage. Their insurance company told me to take it to court or go away.

Now, regardless of the price they offer, I will stay in one of the other SPG properties for the rest of my life (I stay in SF 20+ nights per year).

This hotel can get bent IMO
