Even the most understated room is a great room here. It is very comfortable, clean and there is attention to detail and service. For what you get the price is reasonable. The breakfast which was included was very tasty.

Dear Sheryl T, We take great pride in outfitting even our smallest rooms with all of the wonderful amenities as in our largest suites! Of course with a suite you get a lot more space and our "City View" rooms provide dramatic views of San Francisco. Thanks so much for your review! Kind Regards, John Spear General Manager More

We stayed at Hotel Drisco for one night during our honeymoon. What a gem! Ideally located on top of one of San Francisco's many hills, you have views down on each side to the water. Check-in was a breeze, and the employees are very dutiful and responsive. We had checked in late and apparently just missed a wine tasting, so... More

Dear Sukoh, Thanks for noticing all of the "little touches" that we love to provide, from the Nespresso machine to the tiny bag of amenities we hang our your door the morning of departure. Congratulations on your marriage and we look forward to welcoming your back for some anniversaries! Kind Regards, John Spear General Manager More

Management and the ownership are obviously dialed in to what is important to today's traveler. As a veteran traveler and current innkeeper, I pride myself on attention to detail. I am taking notes here. Staying in their most basic room, I lack for nothing. Nicely arranged, well - equipped (espresso machine, large flat screen, DVD player, sound machine and the... More

Dear Mendocinoinnkeeper, Thanks so much for your terrific review! I like to think that we "get it" but it's always nice to have that kind of validation from another hospitality professional! You can rest assured though that we would never consider resting on our laurels -- we're always looking for new ways to please and delight our guests. Thanks again... More

It is a small, refined and comfortable hotel. The suites are spacious and the decoration is sophisticated and detailed. Breakfast is delicious and they also offer afternoon wine tasting with cheese. Bikes and passes to the nearest gym are complimentary and so is the wi-fi. I always stay at Drisco when visiting San Francisco and never would consider any other... More

We chose to stay at the Hotel Drisco because of the good reviews and were not disappointed. The hotel is in a lovely and quiet neighborhood. There has been a bit of noise on our first night because of the old floorboards but we live in an old house and know it's impossible to avoid. But on the other nights... More

We spent three nights here and could not fault the service provided. Comfy room, big bathroom, lovely breakfast, friendly staff. And there are lots of little extras that make it a special hotel - like the wine reception and champagne on arrival (we're on our honeymoon). The hotel is situated on one of the most prestigious streets in San Francisco... More

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

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
