Those that have followed my blog for a while know how much I love to explore the world and how often we end up at really great hotels around the world. I love properties with history, like the St. Regis Rome. Not only does that hotel have great history, it has great service.
I’m pretty excited to be giving away 2 nights at a truly exceptional property in one of my favorite cities, San Francisco. The Palace Hotel has been a landmark there since 1909 (technically since 1875, though it burned to the ground and was rebuilt). It’s a member of the Luxury Collection of Starwood Preferred Guest, a handful of properties around the world that celebrate history, luxury and service.
The hotel went through a refurbishment last year and the rooms look great. Though I’ve stayed in San Francisco a handful of times, I’ve never been able to stay at the Palace, so I’ll be jealous that the winner of this prize gets to stay there before I do. This property is certainly on my wish list.
Located downtown, you can use this prize for a romantic getaway or just to explore the city. We had so much fun taking Catherine to San Francisco for the first time a few years ago. It’s a city that just begs to be explored, walking around to see all there is to experience.
This giveaway wouldn’t be possible without the cool folks at Luxury Travel Diary. You’ve seen me speak about their travel auctions before, which offer great value for travelers around the world. I actually have my eye on of their auctions right now.
Back to the giveaway! The Palace is a Category 6 hotel in the SPG program, which means 20,000-25,000 points a night. I checked a handful of key dates and found rooms for 20,000 points. However, with this giveaway, there’s no need for Starpoints or cash.
There are two ways to enter from this blog post (plus additional ways to enter below):
- Take a look at the hotel and tell me why you want to visit The Palace Hotel.
- Check out the auctions at Travel Luxury Diary and tell me your favorite (I might tell you if you hit the one I’ve got my eye on).
You can comment twice, once for each of the reasons above. Entries past that will be disregarded.
The deadline to enter is 11:59 pm EST on Wednesday, March 9th.
More pesky rules: All decisions by me are final. The winner will be selected randomly using random.org. The prize is for 2 nights in a Superior room for up to 2 people. Blackout dates may apply, though there’s not a specific list. The prize expires March 31, 2017. The hotel also wanted me to mention that the gift certificates are non transferable, not redeemable for cash and can not be replaced if lost or stolen. Reservation are required and are based on availability. Any transportation costs to/from San Francisco are your responsibility, so just make sure you can get there if you’re entering (happy to provide advice on cheap fares or using award miles).
I don’t receive any compensation from the hotel or Luxury Travel Diary. It’s a great property and I’m happy to help promote both the auctions at Luxury Travel Diary and the newly refurbished Palace Hotel. All I want is a brief follow-up e-mail when you get back letting me know how you liked the property.
