The original Palace Hotel opened in 1875 and although it survived the initial damage from the early morning earthquake on April 18, 1906, by late that afternoon it had been consumed by the subsequent fires.
The "New" Palace Hotel, completely rebuilt from the ground up, opened on December 19, 1909. The new Palace is as elegant, sumptuous, and gracious on the inside as the 1875 building, especially the Garden Court which is San Francisco Designated Landmark No.18
