About Palihotel San Diego

Palisociety reimagines the historic Hotel St. James, originally built in 1912, into Palihotel San Diego, a vibrant and bustling mainstay located in the heart of San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter. Featuring 122 guest rooms, Palihotel San Diego brings a youthful, design-centric offering to San Diego’s hotel landscape, showcasing a preppy, nautical-inspired charm, a new restaurant, and a guest-exclusive roof deck offering daily social hour and the best views of the city. Equally approachable 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 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, and a Nespresso coffee machine. Additional amenities include a SMEG mini fridge, a fully stocked minibar with curated snacks, a laptop-compatible in-room safe, complimentary Wi-Fi, and more.

With a prime location in the heart of the Gaslamp Quarter, 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!
