First Class service and amenities. Staff are helpful, friendly, and attentive. Good experience from reservations to checkout. Room service second to none, tasty food available while relaxing in a quiet beautiful neighborhood with great views. Breakfast is best complimentary breakfast ever. Staff seems to enjoy making stay comfortable and enjoyable. Worth a trip to SF just for hotel experience alone.

Just back from a super stay at the Drisco. The staff are very friendly and accommodating, the service excellent. It's in a gorgeous old building, with appropriately luxurious furnishings. Breakfasts were delicious and there is a complimentary wine reception every evening! I slept like a baby even with the windows open - the beds are very comfortable. I used the... More

I visited the Hotel Drisco July 17- July 21,2014. I have stayed in first class hotels all over the world but the Hotel Drisco I found had the overall best service and most welcoming staff I have ever experienced in my traveling life. The hotel is elegant and my daughter and I enjoyed the suite we booked with fabulous city... More

What a wonderful experience we just had at Hotel Drisco - a little European, a little 1920's - upscale without any of the attitude. Wish we could have stayed longer! Staff could not have been more pleasant - attentive yet not hovering - always available & room service without delay. Room nicely appointed & clean- wonderful idea to have a... More

Everything at this hotel was outstanding. From the moment we arrived a few hours before checkin we were treated like royalty. We were sat with and given lots of very useful information that included explanation all of the complimentary services and items the hotel offers. From complimentary slippers to a nightly wine tasting the hotel really knows how to treat... More

My wife and I stayed here from July 13- 18th. We are a early 50's couple and have stayed in other smaller boutique hotel and this one was right up there with our other experiences. The staff is super friendly, the breakfast and evening wine are a great touch, the hotel is super clean and it is in a beautiful... More

Out of typical tourist areas, this is a quiet location atop Pacific Heights, in a neighborhood of grand homes. Nice room, excellent wine and cheese in the evening, and excellent continental breakfast. Possibly the most attentive staff we have ever experienced. The hotel is clean and attractive but the service is what made it stand out as a place to... More

My wife and I recently stayed at this hotel to celebrate our 10th anniversary. Because it was a special occasion, we decided to pay a little more than we normally would for a hotel. However, Drisco was well worth it. The location is incredibly beautiful and it is a pleasure to return there after spending the day in the hectic... More

Stayed at Drisco, just a walk away from the world, staff was super nice, everything nice and clean, was allowed to use street parking, felt like arriving at my own house, got to walk and see a lot of places, really recommend it!

We picked the hotel based on the location and all the great reviews, and I'm glad we did! The hotel is very small and has a great "homey" feeling to it. The staff was very pleasant, the room was spotless and breakfast was really good. Parking on the street was easy and the hotel will move your car for you... More
