It felt a bit like having a personal residence being easy and pleasant and located in a largely residential neighborhood. The hotel is an attractive period building with lots of attention to detail. The location is pleasnt residential. We walked quite a bit but the hills are worth mentioning. The service was first class. This started with a warm welcome... More

We would come back here in a heartbeat. Staff are personable, attentive, kind without being intrusive. Rooms are impeccably cleaned. Amenities and food offerings are lovely. My quibbles are with the bathroom and the "city view" suite. The bathroom is spacious and comfortable--except for the lack of a fan and water pressure. Pulling on the shower faucet led to sprays...

We've never been to SF before, and I've never provided a review before. But the service at the Drisco was so fantastic, and I find TripAdvisor such a great travel resource, I have to commend them. Great service, nice rooms, we enjoyed breakfast, wine hour and use of the bicycles to go over the Golden Gate Bridge (and back). Truly... More

After half a week in Napa, we stayed the rest of our anniversary week in San Francisco at the Hotel Drisco in the Pacific Heights. We were given excellent service which was professional and personal. From beginning to end, all our needs were accommodated. Even with high expectations, we were extremely happy staying there.

Our room wasn't ready when we arrived and even though we didn't complain, they upgraded us to a city view suite! We had a lovely walk around the scenic Pacific Heights neighborhood while we waited. The room had a fantastic view of the city from 4 windows. The wine and cheese reception was really good and we had a fabulous... More

Hospitality means generous and friendly treatment of visitors and guests, and the Hotel Drisco in Pacific Heights takes this to a new level. On arrival we enjoyed a wine and hors d'oeuvres reception (offered daily from 5-6:30 pm). Very good wine at that. Fresh fruit in our sitting area, robe, slippers and cookies by the bed, high-end toiletries, nothing left... More

Had a great one night stay with my wife for a get away weekend. Staff was very friendly, street parking was easy (which surprised me in Pacific Heights), room was clean and attractively decorated. Room had a refrigerator (but no mini bar). Great views toward telegraph hill from our fourth story south facing windows. Beds super comfortable, and lots of... More

Hotel Drisco is a small hotel located in the Pacific Heights neighborhood of San Francisco. The hotel was recommended to us by friends and turned out to be as advertised. Comfortable and well-appointed rooms with sufficient room for 2. Small but well designed lobby. Very nice restaurant (breakfast only.) Location is very nice--Pacific Heights. The hotel is in a largely... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your kind review. You're correct that the only meal we serve in our Dining Room is our complimentary continental breakfast, but we also offer substantial hors d'oeurvres during our complimentary wine reception and we offer lunch and dinner 24/7 from our Room Service menu. Kind Regards, John Spear General Manager More

Not having visited San Francisco for forty years, but wanting to celebrate a special birthday, we didn't quite know where to begin with choosing accommodation. How lucky were we to find the 'magical kingdom' better known as Hotel Drisco! It fulfilled our every wish ..... quiet, picturesque, small, supremely comfortable, genteel, and with an exemplary staff that made us feel... More

Dear Guest, What a lovely review, thank you! I don't believe I've ever heard the Drisco referred to as a "magical kingdom" before, but I like it. I just hope a certain M. Mouse doesn't get jealous. Kind Regards, John Spear General Manager More
