Palace Hotel History — new slideshow
Palace Hotel, Market and New Montgomery Street circa 1880
Built on a sandhill, the eight-story Hotel opened in splendor in 1876 as the largest hotel west of the Mississsippi. Two and a half acres in size, with 800 rooms and six of its seven gold-and-white stories decorated in parallel banks of bay windows, the Palace was this boomtown's pride and joy.
