Inspired by visionary, William Chapman Ralston, the Palace Hotel was the
result of one man's dream of turning the city from boom town into a
booming metropolis, simply by erecting a hotel of timeless elegance and
unprecedented luxury. Ralston commissioned an architect to study
Europe's finest hotels and make them pale in comparison.
