The DNA: Palihotel San Francisco is a boutique style property, set in a Mission and Spanish Revival-style hotel from the 1920s. The building has been known under several names including the Colonial Hotel in the 1920s, the Hotel Navarre in the 1930s, the Navarre Guest House in the 1950s and most recently, the Mystic Hotel. While the hotel’s historic patina and details are still in abundance, it has been layered with a contemporary, California-centric sensibility highlighted by a soft, neutral color palette with natural wood accents and earth-toned tiles; a bright, minimal collection of art; and a mixed and matched assortment of patterns, textures and accessories that is a signature of Palisociety’s irreverent, approachable take on modern-day hotel design. The second floor Fisher Loft is an expansive, all-day, loft-style restaurant, lounge, and liquor and cocktail bar.
