THE PALACE HOTEL IN SAN FRANCISCO  REOPENS FOR THE THIRD TIME IN HISTORY
THURSDAY, MAY 27TH

GOLD BALLOON RELEASE TRADITION CELEBRATES THE HOTEL’S LEGACY

San Francisco, CA – The historic Palace Hotel reopens on Thursday, May 27th at 12:00PM after being shuttered for 14 months due to the global pandemic. 

As was done for the 1909 reopening and the 2009 100 Year Anniversary, the Palace will release a gold balloon to celebrate this 2021 moment in history. Accompanying the 36” gold balloon will be two 20” balloons in royal purple – the official color of hospitality, bearing the Palace message HERE TO STAY. THE LEGACY CONTINUES.  In keeping with the Palace Hotel’s commitment to preserving the environment, the latex balloons and messages are 100% biodegradable and disintegrate at the same rate as an oak leaf. 

The opening team of associates will gather on the Palace rooftop at 10:00AM for the balloon release celebration before the grand dame opens her doors to welcome guests at 12:00PM.  First guests include a couple from Washington DC who will be traveling to San Francisco for the first time to celebrate their 20th wedding anniversary at the Palace Hotel. 

This momentous date marks the third time the grand dame hotel has reopened her doors since the hotel was established in 1875. In 1909, a new Palace was unveiled after being completely rebuilt following the devastation of the 1906 earthquake. In 1991, the hotel celebrated a long awaited reopening after undergoing a three year, 170 million dollar restoration. Now in 2021, the hotel makes history once again, proving the Palace is here to stay as its legacy continues.
