106 TC-Text-1 Text C The Palace Hotel Para 1 Inspired by a dreamer, William Ralston, the Palace Hotel was the result of one man’s dream of turning the city from a small town into a metropolis, simply by building a hotel of timeless elegance and unprecedented luxury.Para 2 Ralston commissioned an architect to study Europe’s finest hotels and make them pale in comparison. To finance his dream and its $5 million price tag, he exhausted his banking empire. Just weeks before the Palace’s grand opening, he was told the Bank of California would close. The next day, Ralston’s body was found floating in the San Francisco Bay. His partner, Senator William Sharon, was undeterred in fostering the dream. On October 2, 1875, the Palace Hotel opened its doors to great acclaim.Para 3 When the Palace Hotel opened its doors in 1875, the Garden Court was the carriage entrance to this grand hotel. A parade of famous guests visited San Francisco’s Palace and stood in awe of its magnificence.
107 Text CTC-Text-2Para 4 Admirers were awed by the hotel’s four hydraulic elevators known as “rising rooms.” Now guests could reach the hotel’s top floors without effort. Each room was equipped with an electronic call button so that every guest’s whim was met quickly and fulfilled completely.Para 5 Then, in 1906, a big earthquake shook all of San Francisco. The Palace survived the quake, but was destroyed by fires that engulfed the city in its wake. In 1906, following the earthquake, the Palace closed its doors for the first restoration. Three years later, the carriage entrance was transformed and the Garden Court was unveiled. Since its debut in 1909, the Garden Court has been recognized as one of the world’s most beautiful public spaces.Para 6 The grand hotel went down in a blaze of glory and was gutted by flames, not reopening until Afterwards, its beauty was enjoyed by many generations of society’s elite. Decades had passed since the 1909 re-opening and San Francisco’s “Beauty” was in desperate need of attention. In January 1989, the Palace closed its doors for a major restoration. When restoration began, the people of San Francisco were eyeing the plans for the hotel. Everyone was assured that the goal was to restore the hotel to its 1909 elegance, with concern on the Garden Court in particular.
108 Text CTC-Text-3Para 7 With its incredible architecture, dome stained glass ceiling and Austrian crystal chandeliers, the Garden Court used to be the site for some of the nation’s most prestigious events. In 1919, President Woodrow Wilson hosted two luncheons in support of the Versailles Treaty which ended World War I. In 1945, the official banquet honoring the opening session of the United Nations was held in the Garden Court.Para 8 Two years later, the restoration was complete and San Francisco witnessed the rebirth of the Palace Hotel. The Garden Court was everything everyone had hoped it would be. It was, once again, one of the most beautiful places in the world.Para 9 Over the years, the Garden Court has become part of San Francisco history. The Garden Court holds many memories for many people. Shared stories of engagements, weddings, elegant dinner dances, fabulous parties and fond childhood celebrations make the Garden Court a truly magical place. We hope you will allow us the opportunity to add magic to your special event. We promise wonderful memories of your experience in the Garden Court.Para 10 And history, shall we say, was made again.

Though very expensive, you may find it hard to find a room in the local hotels. Your holiday may be spoiled by the illnesses on the journey.
