The historic Palace Hotel was built in 1875 by architect John P. Gaynor. The majestic San Francisco building hailed 7,000 windows, 14-foot high ceilings and an unprecedented opulence. When the devastating San Francisco earthquake hit in 1906, the building survived the quake structurally, but was decimated in the ensuing fire that swept most of downtown San Francisco. It took three years of rebuilding before the Palace Hotel would re-open in 1909. Among the magical creations in the historic building of 1909 are The Garden Court, The Palace Gold Service and The Pied Piper of Hamelin mural.
Since its 1909 reopening, the new Palace Hotel attracted dignitaries, business moguls and celebrities alike. Presidents Harrison, McKinley, Grant, Theodore Roosevelt, Taft, Harding, Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Clinton all spent time in this historic San Francisco hotel. Leaving its mark on the 20th Century, the historic hotel hosted President Woodrow Wilson in support of the Versailles Treaty and in 1945, catered the banquet honoring the opening session of the United Nations.
