We stayed at Hotel Drisco for one night on my husband's 55th birthday. I'd made the reservations far in advance and worked with Marti, the property's wonderful concierge, to make everything perfect - and it was! She arranged for a town car to pick us up at SFO, early check-in, a delicious birthday cake and champagne (complete with flutes, china,... More

Our welcome to Hotel Drisco was warm and friendly. The atmosphere was made even better by the helpful and timely way we were checked in, shown to our room, and informed of all the amenities the hotel offers. In addition, the desk manager supplied me with a copy of the New York Times Sunday Crossword puzzle! Hotel Drisco is situated... More

I was looking forward to staying at Hotel Drisco while in SF on business. It does seem odd that there are so many rave reviews and so many negative reviews. Unfortunately, my experience there fell into the negative review camp. I stayed in room 302. This room faces a light well, the view being into windows of other rooms and... More

We arrived at the Drisco, late in the evening after a long drive, just as the weather turned sour - however as soon as we got inside our mood improved. The hotel is very elegant and the staff are very friendly and helpful. We had a suite with a city view - so the room was very spacious, very nicely... More

In all our hotel stays, which include parts of Europe, Canada and throughout the U.S., we've never felt more welcome and well-treated than we did at the Drisco. It helped make our first trip to San Francisco unforgettable. The location, in the heart of the majestic Pacific Heights neighborhood (where homes are valued in the tens of millions), is away...

We stayed at the Hotel Drisco for two nights in September. The location is fantastic in Pacific Heights. The staff were very attentive and helpful - a special thank you to Marti and Bob for helping us with everything from maps, taxis and a car service pick-up to the airport. We'd come back from an evening out and tell them... More

I would not hesitate to recommend the Drisco Hotel to anyone who was going to visit San Francisco. From the moment we stepped out of the taxi we felt welcomed. The conceirge was there to greet us with a smile and assist us with our luggage and he was so informative and helpful. At the reception, again the staff displayed... More

My husband and I stayed here on the last three nights of our two week trip to California, and it lived up to its reputation. The staff were always friendly and helpful - very helpful. They had great recommendations for local restaurants and things to do. If there was a question they couldn't answer, they would find someone who could... More

As per the other reviews - this place will hit the spot if you want a quiet relaxing hotel with friendly staff. Its a small hotel, more of a boutique B&B with limited room service and facilities. However, they provide all day coffee in the lounge and have a great continental breakfast. The staff are all very helpful and will... More

Returning after three years to this lovely hotel, we weren't disappointed. Again we had a very pleasant stay. The staff was as welcoming and caring as during our first visit. Breakfast was abundant. We enjoyed our morning newspapers and our daily workouts in the little Drisco gym. But the biggest surprise was - that upon request - we received our... More
