Our family just completed our second stay at the Hotel Drisco and it was every bit as wonderful as we remembered it from a year ago. At the end of a long day in the city, I felt as if I was coming home to a luxurious yet relaxed retreat. The rooms are spacious, beautifully decorated and appointed, clean and... More

After reading all the stellar reviews, my wife and I were thrilled we found a room at the Drisco on short notice for a couple of nights in August. We were on vacation in the bay area looking for a nice place to stay in San Fran before we headed to Sonoma for a few days. We've stayed in several... More

We were very concerned to read this Guest's disappointment with the Hotel Drisco on their recent visit. We do apologize for the lack of warm welcome they received from one of our staff, and he has been reminded of our firm policy in his matter which he failed to follow. It seems these Guests were expecting some other kind of... More

I have family living in the Presidio, and they booked our room at the Drisco, one of two Joie de Vivre hotels in the area where we stayed. Both were very nice, but the Drisco was like a large, comfortable, well maintained home. The setting is residential, and gorgeous, and the ambiance was just wonderful. I will look for reasons...

We just returned from a four night stay at this lovely boutique hotel. We thoroughly enjoyed staying in the Pacific Heights area, amongst mansions and away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Street parking was readily available - much better than paying the astronomical parking rates at the downtown hotels. The staff was very friendly, helpful, and responsive... More

A wonderful all round experience with a quiet boutique hotel with traditional friendly services and quality rooms and amenities. Located in Pacific Heights an exclusive upmarket quiet inner suburban locale with all facilities as required and first class self service buffet breakfast.. We found the staff... More

Just returned from the most wonderful week vacation in SF, where we stayed at this hotel. Where to start--first, this is a first-rate small boutique hotel, located in the most beautiful and safe section of SF-Pacific Heights. We walked everywhere--and if walking up and down hills is too difficult, the Muni bus system is fantastic, inexpensive, and easily accessible. NO... More

My husband and I just returned from a quick overnight at the Hotel Drisco and were pretty disappointed. The raves the hotel received led us to believe we were in for a treat. Here's our recap: On the plus side: there was avery friendly bellman, it's a quiet neighborhood in a central location, there were comfy beds and a nice... More

We wish to make clear that we genuinely regret the disappointments of those overnight Guests who did not enjoy their stay at the Hotel Drisco recently. It comes as a surprise that they were uncomfortable with the "older, more conservative crowd"- too old for their much younger temperament. Of course we do not descriminate on the basis of age or...

We stayed at the Hotel Drisco for 4 nights in late June 2008 as part of a 2 week tour of New York, San Francisco & Vegas. It was without doubt one of the finest hotels we've ever stayed at - it is located in a beautiful neighbourhood surrounded by amazing houses that would put Beverley Hills to shame !... More

It doesn't get better than this! The Hotel Drisco is located in Pacific Heights with views that are breath-taking. My three children were with me (ages 28, 26 & 12) & they agreed that the Hotel Drisco is the nicest hotel they've stayed in worldwide. The staff is at your beckon call! We will return to only the Hotel Drisco... More

From the initial phonecall to the final farewell, my every experience with this property and the staff was exceptional. Elegantly and tastefully decorated, without being over the top, the rooms were very comfortable. There were many thoughtful extras - bathrobes and slippers, daily newspaper, jug of iced water, bed turned down daily - all complimentary. The communal sitting room was... More
