Hi, does anyone have a contact email address for The Palace concierge please? They seem to ignore the general "info@" email address...

Today's breakfast spread which I honestly thought was fantastic. I think you could have a great meal without paying the $10 upcharge for the hot buffet.

I actually thought the continental offerings were pretty meager. No yogurt or cereal covered even. Although it looks like you had a lot more pastry options compared to when I was there a few weeks ago.

I had a late breakfast and was going to lunch, so skipped the full buffet, and ended up just nibbling on some fruit and a piece of toast. Not a bad setting to have morning coffee and juice though.

My reaction to the buffet has always been "looks great, tastes meh." Much lower quality than HR Downtown/SOMA or St. Francis.

The space is indisputably gorgeous.

I really gotta see that HR breakfast. Seems like there's always a rave about it

Interesting article:

Short version:
The hotel is struggling financially, and has left its neon sign turned off for the last five years to save money. Restoring the sign would be prohibitively expensive, so they asked the San Francisco Historic Preservation Commission for permission to glue LED lights into the letters, instead of using the existing conventional neon bulbs. A preservationist group opposed the hotel's request, saying it could be difficult and dangerous to remove the LED lighting from the porcelain letters, making the change away from neon effectively permanent. The hotel successfully got approval from the council, with one member of the council saying: "The hotel industry is getting crushed. People are struggling in San Francisco, it’s a war zone out there and we’re trying to put more costs on a hotel operator.... I think they’re going to throw their hands up and leave it dark. And that is a really bad solution for us."
