SAN FRANCISCO HOTEL REVIEW:
Hotels don't come more classic on the West Coast than the Palace in San Francisco. Rebuilt in 1909 after the 1906 Fire, the hotel shuffles a century's worth of Barbary Coast mythology through every corridor. Reminiscent of the palm dining room at the Plaza, the Palace is an ideal spot to drop in for tea on a Saturday afternoon, or a quick pause on your way to SF Moma.
We love fast and hot, blurred and intemperate. We love dub in the street, gelato in North Beach, sparkling Mumm rosé on a gorgeous afternoon. We love Soba, Noba, coffee at the Ferry Building, and morning pastries at Tartine. A city to drive it like you stole it, wear it like you made it, DJ til you're famous, and start a corporation - while the East Bay sleeps.
