this is one of our two favorite Hotels, the other being the Draycott near Sloane square in London. Very similar boutique experience, but the staff here is even more friendly and helpful. We followed Bob's advice on walking, dining, views, museums each day. The food At breakfast and wine tasting is delicious and attractive. A sitting room with plenty of... More

From the moment we arrived, to the day of departure, the staff at Hotel Drisco made us feel at home. We spent seven nights at this hotel and the entire stay became the best part of our San Francisco experience. Although the hotel is not located near some of the main attractions, the staff was very helpful in explaining the... More

My husband and I traveled to San Francisco for a very short vacation(3 nights). We had flown in from Hawaii and did not have a car so wanted to be close to walking, biking and transportation. Hotel Drisco was very helpful in helping us organize our car services. The service at the hotel was wonderful and exceeds every expectation. Every... More

We had 3 nights in this lovely hotel which is situated in a residential area of quality homes and is a truly peaceful haven. All members of the staff were friendly, smiling and helpful - nothing was too much trouble! We like to choose boutique hotels where we can when travelling - they are so much more interesting than the... More

This was by far one of the best hotel experiences I've ever had, and this is coming from someone who is a 5-Star regular, usually Four Seasons. The last time we were in SF, we stayed at the Ritz and it was a MAJOR disappointment. This time, I wanted a different experience, neighborhood, and vibe, so I went out on... More

We have been to SF many times and decided to stay away from the craziness. The Hotel Drisco is perfect for peace and quiet close to Billionaires Row. The hotel is located on top of a very very steep hill in Pacific Heights. It is on a street of ten million dollar homes, a block from homes that are tens... More

Loved this hotel!! We were on our first visit to San Francisco and did not know where to stay. After picking Hotel Drisco and seeing the rest of the city I can't imagine having stayed anywhere else. Located in the beautiful Pacific Heights it was easy to walk around to other areas of the city. The hotel offers complimentary car... More

Hotel Drisco is like no other. The people are what make it shine. The building, the decor, the intimate size and sense and feel of history not withstanding, Its the people that make it #1. This boutique Hotel is like no other I've experienced. How can any large scale hotel compete with a place that offers this service? Upon Check... More

Dear Guest, I just loved your review -- thank you! Several of my employees have already come up to me this morning to ask me if I had seen it yet. The entire review was very kind, but the part that struck me most was when you said "They work for it. It shows." That really does capture the way... More
