If you want to have the opportunity to feel like you are living in San Francisco, then the Hotel Drisco is the hotel. It is located near the Presidio in one of the best areas of Pacific Heights. The hotel is within easy walking distance of some of the best blocks in Pacific Heights and Presidio Heights as well as... More

Dear Guest, I'm so glad you felt at home at the Drisco and we are delighted that you consider us your "pied-a-terre" in the city. And thanks for mentioning the Halloween candy -- I always love handing out candy to the neighborhood childen every year. That's one of the best parts of my job! Kind Regards, John Spear General Manager More

While the price was fair, there are reasons I wouldn't stay there again. My child found an open condom box under under the bed! Speaking of the beds, they were some of the most uncomfortable beds we've slept on.

I usually stay downtown or in the Financial District when I'm in San Francisco because it is usually more convenient for my business meetings, but Hotel Drisco is worth going out of your way if you enjoy superb hotel experiences The Pacific Heights neighborhood is world class and just a beautiful walk away from Presidio Park where, ironically, my meeting...

Dear Guest, I am always pleased when we can attract business travelers away from the big downtown hotels. For a very small amount of extra travel time we offer a much more personalized experience. And I must point out that our wifi is super-reliable and super-fast. Thanks for your review. Kind Regards, John Spear General Manager More

I travel a great deal and frankly get very tired of hotel stays. Not the case with The Drisco. I look forward to checking into what I really consider to be my home in San Francisco. I believe I have experienced every room category and have never been disappointed. The front desk staff is welcoming and super knowledgable about all... More

We had a wonderful 3 day stay at Hotel Drisco. The staff was very attentive and helpful, and the accomodations and location were perfect for our visit. The wine evening was an added plus. We will be back!

Located in a beautiful residential section, you feel as if you are living like a local. Spacious accommodation, nicely decorated, good views and above all very attentive service. No detail is overlooked. Great breakfast is included -- and that means a latte or a cappuccino also if that is your pleasure. This hotel may not be for the person who... More

Dear Guest, You are absolutely right -- guests looking to be in the center of the "action" should book at one of the fine downtown hotels. However, if you crave an urban escape in a peaceful upscale residential neighborhood, then to be sure the Drisco is for you! Thanks you for your great review.

My wife and two daughters (10 and 13) absolutely loved this charming hotel. In the amazing Pacific Heights neighbourhood surrounded by mansions and architectural marvel. Incredible customer service and amenities - from free DVDs for the kids to robust breakfast and afternoon wine reception, this hotel was superb. We'll be back again someday!

From check-in to the room, to the amazing Continental breakfast, afternoon tea/coffee/biscotti, and early evening wine/cheese and apps., this hotel is top notch. There is no restaurant but they do have room service if you don't feel like walking to a restaurant. However while there you do feel special. Parking is spotty but free on street and over the course... More

Dear Guest, What a wonderful review, thank you. I'm glad you mentioned windows. Many folks don't realize that it's common for residents of San Francisco to leave their screen-less windows wide open all day to catch the fresh Pacific breezes. How is this possible? No bugs! Or very few anyway. I agree that it's such a treat to be able... More

From the call we received about a week before our stay to ask if we had any questions, through the friendly reception, and the lovely room with lots of extra amenities (toiletries, an espresso machine in the room, water bottles) everything was absolutely perfect. The hotel offers a wine-and-appetizers reception in the evening, and an exquisite breakfast. The day of... More

Simply forgot about us and did not help: We arrived on time at the airport and had prepaid the hotel for their limo service.
