Breakfast is not to be missed. Lox and bagels on Sunday but not on Monday...my only disappointment for this hotel. Wine happy hour is very nice and even served as an early dinner. Classic charming hotel complete with lumpy bed and hard to control heat, but it's so cute you don't mind. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful!

I stayed Hotel Drisco for the third time last week in the last five years. I have to come to business meeting in North Bay every quarter. I need some tranquil time either before pr after the meeting. This is the perfect place to kick back and relax for a day or two. I have stayed both in a suite... More

While the Drisco does have a dining room for the continental breakfast, there is no restaurant. I guess over the years I've become accustomed to nicer hotels having a restaurant. I'll usually only dine at the hotel restaurant once or twice, but it can be convenient, and it can be a nice spot to grab a drink after running around... More
