After three previous stays, our great expectations were at fever pitch. We were in no way disappointed. Excellence in any undertaking is always rare; consistent excellence is rarer yet. Congratulations to the entire management and staff. J&M D, McLean, VA

Hotel Drisco was wonderful! My boyfriend and I stayed there for 3 nights in late August, and had a great time. The location is great! You do not feel like a total tourist. Sure it is a smaller, more intimate hotel, but you feel very special staying here. Everyone at Drisco was incredibly nice and helpful; they offer excellent and... More

When we visit San Francisco we always stay at Hotel Drisco. Unless of course it is fully booked. It is in prime real estate area that is surrounded by houses. So it is off of the beaten path. The hotel staff are great and gracious, the rooms large and well appointed. Their is a breakfast included with the price of... More

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Drisco last month -Sept 08- our first visit to San Francisco. We selected the hotel largely because of its top Tripadvisor rating and excellent reviews. On the whole we were not disappointed - I would be happy to stay there again - the rooms are good, the neighbourhood very up market (a 10... More

This hotel was absolutely lovely. The hotel staff were extremely accomodating and helpful. The continental breakfast was more than we expected--croissants, bagels, cereal, fresh fruit, dried fruit, yogart, oatmeal, hard boiled eggs, juice, coffee, tea, etc. The nightly wine tasting was also exceptional with appetizers and a choice of wines. However, we were not aware that the hotel does not... More

Reading the reviews on TripAdvisor, we contacted the Drisco and booked a triple room for my husband, my elderly mother and myself. Although we were kindly warned by the staff that the room was too small to comfortably accomdate three people, we were pleasantly surprised. The room was spacious, with the most comfortable beds we had ever tried, a huge... More

Be certain to check your confirmation. When I received our confirmation, the hotel had only booked one of the two nights, then had sold out the second night and we were put on a waiting list to eventually get it all straightened out. Thank goodness because this hotel is a treat! The location is at the very top of the... More

We, my Husband and I, stayed here from 3 to 9th September as the first stop before travelling down the PCH. We chose this hotel after reading reviews on TA and were not disappointed in any way. This was our first visit to SF and whilst the hotel may not be convenient for downtown sightseeing/shopping it is well placed for... More

Hotel Drisco is far enough from town to unwind after hiking the hills of San Fran but close enough to grab a cab into town which Bob the Bellman was excellent at providing! The rooms are clean and spacious with great views from the 4th floor. Breakfast was disappointing and a little more investment in great produce needed. The free... More

Bolton, England We have just returned from our first trip to California, which incorporated two visits to the Hotel Drisco.
