a few weekends ago, a bunch of my close girlfriends and i got together for a fun staycation here in San Francisco at the Palace Hotel! if you remember, robbie and i stayed here for my birthday in December and it’s easily the most fancy {and my favorite!} hotel i’ve ever stayed at. it was such a treat to be welcomed back by the incredible staff, who truly treated us like absolute queens! the Palace is right in the heart of downtown San Francisco and it’s an iconic landmark of the city. it has withstood fires and earthquakes, and the stained glass in the gorgeous Garden Court is the original from the late 1800s.

when we all arrived, the staff welcomed us with tasty treats in our Royal Suite: chocolate covered strawberries, cheese, fruit, sparkling water, and champagne for those who drink. our room was absolutely incredible and i couldn’t get over the crown molding, high ceilings, amazing bath tub, and spectacular view of Market Street. after we unpacked and settled in, we headed to the Pied Piper for dinner. we learned all about the Pied Piper painting, which was commissioned by Maxfield Parrish in 1909 and remains as one of the Palace’s beloved treasures today. we sat in the back room, where the seating is relaxed, open, and inviting. i think we tried just about everything on the menu and it was delicious! my personal favorite was the Burrata Bruschetta, yum!

the best part about being with all my girls was of course the girl talk! we chatted and laughed until 3am in our cozy pajamas and beautiful room! robbie and i spend almost all of our time together, so i really savor the times i get to be with my girls. it was so fun to relax together and talk about all sorts of things from our personal lives to how we run our businesses to funny stories, etc! there’s nothing better than being with women who uplift & inspire me. so thankful for each and every one of them!

the next morning, we had the most yummy spread of breakfast in the Presidential Suite. this suite was absolutely breathtaking from the sparkly chandelier and baby grand piano to the many various rooms to shoot in including the formal dining room, media room, and marble bathroom. when can i move in?! the Presidential Suite was so incredible and such a luxurious treat to see.

after that, our staycation was topped off with a photoshoot and finally the crowning jewel: afternoon tea at the Garden Court. after visiting London for the first time last year, i’ve come to realize that there’s nothing better than hot tea, finger sandwiches, and tasty desserts in the late afternoon. the English are onto something! i highly recommend stopping in for high tea at the Palace! it’s such a fun experience and perfect for a girls staycation, birthday or other celebration, or simply treating yourself to a luxurious afternoon. plus, the Garden Court itself is one of the prettiest rooms i’ve ever been in. the chandeliers and stained glass make for the perfect backdrop!

i had such a fun time with my girls and can’t thank the Palace enough for hosting us! be sure to check out all of their current offers here to plan your future stay. couldn’t recommend the Palace Hotel enough! xx

thanks to the Palace Hotel for hosting our girls staycation!
