The hotel is in Pacific Heights, which is a beautiful spot with great views. Much quieter than in the city centre, and a welcome place to retreat to. Number3 bus was 1 block over, taxis are easy and cheap. If you can cope with the hills, then walking is great. As a family of 5, we took a suite, 2... More

I have to agree with all the other reviews - Hotel Drisco is truly one of the best hotels we have ever visited! It feels like visiting your rich aunt in San Francisco! It feels very homely and attention to detail is of the highest standard! Area around hotel is absolutely beautiful with stunning houses! The only advice - if... More

We booked the Hotel Drisco because it was rated so highly, and the ratings were spot on. We enjoyed everything about this adorable boutique hotel in a beautiful area of San Francisco. The staff was extremely helpful and informative. We especially enjoyed the complimentary wine and cheese and breakfast The room was pristine with a beautiful view of the city!

Asked for a room with a view and room 406B didn't disappoint. Spectacular view from Sausalito to south San Francisco. Even better at night with all the lights. The room was clean and kept that way but was a bit on the small side. Only complaint was the city noise started very early and the old windows don't block much... More

Hotel Drisco is an incredible hotel. It is somewhere between a perfect European feeling boutique hotel and like staying with a very rich relative. The hotel feels homey. There are jelly beans opposite check-in, coffee, tea and water in the front lounge area and wine and cheese and appetizers in the late afternoon/early evening. The staff is across the board... More

We are a family with three kids and decide to take a suite (2 big rooms). Everything is very clean, a lot of space and they look for every detail. Free Parking. Marvellous breakfast to start the day Tea, coffee and/of wine at five o clock And all this with a big smile A place to remember!

Reviewing this hotel feels presumptuous because it outclasses me by about a mile, but here goes. Most accommodating staff, ever. They moved our car every three hours so we wouldn't get ticketed and offered the architect we were meeting with the same courtesy. When we asked for meeting space, they instantly told us to use any public space we wanted.... More

Drisco's location in Pacific Heights is superb - maybe not so much for the business traveller, but certainly for holiday-makers. The city and other areas of interest are easily accessible, and to be able to stroll around the Pacific Heights area with it's great views, quiet streets, stunning homes, boutique shops, and open areas is a real bonus. The hotel... More

The best part of the beautiful well-appointed hotel was the people! Everyone from the beginning really helped my daughter and I explore a city new to both of us-maps, suggestions, rental car- and provided excellent service at the hotel. We loved the breakfast and I enjoyed the wine service and when I invited friends for wine, they were also welcomed... More
