If you are looking for a boutique hotel which provides beautiful rooms and service to make you feel like you are somebody, look no further. We spent our 30th wedding anniversary here and it was a perfect choice for the occasion. The price is higher than what you may be wanting but when you add in the amazing cheese and... More

We just completed a two night stay at this fantastic gem in Pacific Heights. There were 5 adults and a baby in our family group. I can't say enough good things. We all loved the rooms and the hotel facilities. Most especially we really appreciated the amazing service. The staff was incredibly warm and helpful. We ran into a problem... More

Fabulously well-run and well-located, with great views, beautifully furnished, lavish breakfasts. Staff helpful as can be - printed out our boarding passes in no time at all. No negatives - except no restaurant apart from breakfast served. Location - close to Presidio, restaurants, shopping

This was my first time to San Francisco and the West Coast area. I could not have selected a better starting point. You have a wonderful establishment, professionally run, yet all the while maintaining a delightful informal charm. I would not hesitate to re-visit, nor would I hesitate to recommend you to our friends and colleagues. Thank-you Mr Spears and... More

I found Hotel Drisco when I discovered my typical SF hotels were booked, and it was near the Presidio where I was attending a conference. What a charming hotel! Upon check-in, I was upgraded to a corner- suite on the 3rd floor with lovely city views. Loads of windows (but with blackout shades for sleeping). After grabbing a complimentary cup... More

The Hotel Drisco goes above when serving there guests. Breakfast loved the bread and coffee, plus they have a wine reception with o'duerves every night I love how they stay local to San Francisco! View of the city at night are great!

We loved our stay at this excellent hotel. It's elegant, charming, comfortable, beautiful. The staff were uniformly first rate. Any time we can get to San Francisco, this is where we'll stay. Highly recommend!

We stayed just one night (sadly) at The Hotel Drisco last week and it exceeded all our expectations. The staff from Howard the Bell Boy to the lovely lady on the desk (whose name I have forgotten so sorry) and Bob the concierge were all extremely kind and helpful and there were wonderful personal touches throughout our stay. They even... More

Hotel Drisco leaves nothing left to desire. Luxurious rooms, great service, great location, I just loved it. Food is excellent, especially the breakfast. The view from this hotel is truly stunning. I want to go back to Frisco just for this hotel.

We live in the Bay Area, we're members of the SF Fine Arts Museums and we wanted somewhere for an overnight, near the art museums and the park. It had to be quiet and comfortable, no large groups milling around the lobby and be within walking distance of good restaurants. The downtown hotels we once stayed in no longer fit... More

Dear Guest, I'm very glad you found us! We love to host Bay Area locals for short staycations, a night out at the theater, symphony or ballet and of course, for a night out at one of San Francisco's many fabulous restaurants. I look forward to your next stay with us. Kind Regards, John Spear General Manager More
