Well we decided to abandon the days plans for a hike and head to Downtown San Francisco to celebrate another birthday. We ended up discussing and ultimately deciding to check out The Palace Hotel, an older SPG property that I’m sure has been reviewed here before. Booked a basic room with parking as a AAA package and was upgraded to the $2000+ Palace Suite (3x the square footage) for a small upcharge. Anyways, I now owe you all a review of the Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel, The Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort & Spa, and now I have one more in my queue! In the meantime, here are a few pictures from the Palace Hotel.
