Philippine national hero and martyr stayed at the Palace Hotel from May 4 to 6, 1888 in the course of his only visit to the Unites States.

Imbued with a superior intellect and an intense love for his country, Dr. Rizal sought to gain freedom for the Filipino people from centuries of Spanish domination through peaceful means. His writings, foremost of which were novels, "Noli Me Tanfere" and "El Filibuserismo," dared to expose the cancer of colonial rule and agitated for reforms. For this he was arrested, tried and executed by firing squad on December 30, 1896. With his martyrdom, the man of peace fanned the flames of the Revolution of 1896, the first successful uprising in Asia against a Western colonial power.

Installed on December 30, 1996 in commemoration of the first centennial of his martyrdom.
