About Palihotel San Diego

Palihotel San Diego reimagines the historic St. James Hotel, originally built in 1885, as 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.

Our inviting guest rooms and suites offer a dynamic mix of accommodations, from Queen and King rooms to expansive King Suites. Each room at Palihotel San Diego includes custom designed, bespoke furniture, Bellino Fine Linens, Diptyque bath amenities, plush robes, a luxurious rain shower, and a Nespresso coffee machine. Additional amenities include a SMEG mini-fridge, a fully-stocked mini bar with curated snacks, a laptop-compatible in-room safe, complimentary Wi-Fi, and more.

With our prime location in the heart of the Gaslamp District, Palihotel San Diego is the perfect location to discover the city, take meetings with clients, or find respite during a local convention, after catching a game at Petco Park, or seeing a concert at the Shell. Saint James French Diner, located just off the lobby, is an all-day dining room that blends the approachable nature of an American diner with the subtle elegance of a French bistro.

We look forward to welcoming you!
