Service was wonderful and breakfast was a nice touch. It was a convenient location for us since we have friends that live in the area. If you are looking for peace and quiet with amazing views this is definitely the place to be. The rooms were immaculately clean and the amenities in the room were nice. Would definitely stay here...

Loved, loved, loved this hotel. Great service, felt so special. Definitely a memorable stay. Worth paying a little more to have a special experience in a unique hotel that you will never forget. Do not miss the wine reception or breakfast- they go out of their way to make it fantastic. If there is a downside, I suppose it is... More

I'm going to keep this short. From the room, the charm and character of the hotel, to the courtesy and professionalism of the staff and the wonderful breakfasts. From the complimentary bottled water daily, and fruit upon arrival, to all the little courtesies in between, this place just stole our hearts. We WILL be back!!

Our recent stay is the Hotel Drisco in San Francisco was fantastic. We loved the Pacific Heights neighborhood location among some of the most beautiful homes in the area.

Dear Guest, How very kind of you to complement me on running a great hotel. However, the credit must go principally to my incredible longtime staff, without whom we would not be able to surprise and delight so many guests on such a consistent basis. I hope we have the opportunity to welcome you back soon. Kind Regards, John Spear... More

The location is unmatchable, high atop the city in a quiet safe neighborhood. The service is impeccable. The food was terrific. There's a generous wine reception every afternoon. The breakfast is epic. The hotel parks your car for you, a real boon in an neighborhood with maniacal parking regulations. A lovely old hotel, beautifully restored, and really an experience to...

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.

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.
