Palihotel San Diego reimagines the historic St. James Hotel, originally built in 1885, as a vibrant and bustling mainstay. Located in the heart of the Gaslamp District and featuring 122 guest rooms, Palihotel San Diego is a charming neighborhood hotel inspired by America’s nautical heritage. Each guest room blends Palisociety’s signature California quirky sensibility with the quaint appeal of coastal cabins and a preppy spirit. Equal parts youthful and refined, travelers and locals can celebrate San Diego’s rich history and modern delights from this convenient home base.
The hotel also features Saint James French Diner, an all-day dining room that blends the approachable nature of an American diner with the subtle elegance of a French bistro. The bill of fare coupled with the high-energy of 1960’s French pop and garage rock is an homage to roadside food halls in southern France, where bee-hived waitresses serve tables of hungry truckers the Plat du Jour.
We look forward to welcoming you!
