Really, really nice! I paid the AAA rate and was upgraded to a suite before I got there. There was a nice plate of fruit in the room that was perfectly ripened. Bed was extremely comfortable, great bathroom-lighting was terrific!. Breakfast downstairs was surprisingly good. It's two steps up from standard continental breakfast. Only one issue and it's not something... More

The wife and I stayed for 4 nights and it was the best part of our trip. As many others we were greeted curbside and assisted throughout the check in process. The staff was attentive and provided great tips on where to eat, shop and see. We decided to stay here to avoid the crowds and traffic. It you are... More

For us the location of the hotel was perfect as we have good friends who live nearby and it was also good to be away from the noise of the downtown area. It was also easy to get around from there as there are nearby buses which go downtown. The staff at Hotel Drisco are fantastic and could not do... More

What a gem! We booked this hotel because of the tripadvisor ratings and we were not disappointed. This is a lovely old hotel that has been updated without losing it’s character. We had an inside room which was spacious, very up to date and had a large modern bathroom. Due to the cool SanFran weather, the hotel is not air-conditioned,... More

We usually stay downtown but decided to switch it up this time. Very nice neighbor without all the hustle and bustle, not to mention the lack of garbage truck, fire truck, and police siren noise. Still a cheap cab ride from everywhere.

We enjoyed everything at the Hotel Drisco. The staff at the front desk are exceptionally helpful and friendly. We couldn't have asked for more; great restaurant tips, advice on sightseeing and shopping. Thank you, Marti, Liz, Edward and Michael. Julio in the afternoon wine reception was both entertaining and gracious. Breakfast, as always, was outstanding. Thanks Marti, once again, for... More

We stayed at the Hotel Drisco for 2 nights with our 9 and 11 yr old in a cityview suite. The hotel is indeed lovely, with great bed linens and gorgeous views in the spacious cityview suite, but I have to admit I'm surprised that it's ranked #1 out of all the hotels in SF. We picked this hotel b/c... More

My husband and I stayed at the hotel for 3 nights and were met with an exceptionally friendly and helpful staff who went out of their way to provide any information we needed about the city, how to get around, what to see, and even assisting us in booking a tour to Alcatraz. We were given a room upgrade, and... More

4th of July and we walked to the incredible Marina fireworks. This is a beautiful and quiet neighborhood, 3 blocks from the Presidio, atop a hill with a view. So much space in our corner suite - kids comfy on the fold out, parents happy with the pocket doors and enormous bath. Great, helpful staff, tasty breakfast and our cab... More
