Took a stroll today through one of the most iconic hotels in San Francisco, if not the world! The majestic Palace Hotel situated at the corner of Market and Montgomery streets.
Hawai’i’s last King David Kalākaua, died in the original Palace Hotel on January 20, 1891. He was visiting California for a change of climate to recuperate his health as advised by his physicians. The classic mele “Ka Ipo Lei Manu” was written during that trip by his wife Queen Kapi’olani. Sadly, the king never got to hear her beautiful tribute.
That original Palace Hotel was destroyed by fires in the 1906 earthquake.
The “New” Palace Hotel (pictured above) opened on December 19, 1909 and was completely rebuilt from the ground up to match the elegance of it’s predecessor.
If you’re ever in the San Francisco area and you need a dose of inspiration, make it a point to stop by, walk through and take in the beauty of this historic landmark. You’ll be glad you did!

Just a cool perspective of San Francisco I captured on my Android phone and edited using Photoshop Express. Capturing and sharing a creative vision has never been easier thanks to smart phones! I wonder where the bicyclist is going?
