Nice hotel in Pacific Heights, but my room had two single beds and was the size of a postage stamp.

My husband and I just returned home from a 5 day stay in San Francisco to celebrate our 10th anniversary. According to our budget, we could only afford one night in a really nice hotel, so I spent lots of time researching different hotels. The Hotel Drisco's reviews stood out among the others.

But the Hotel Drisco's location in Pacific Heights is so lovely and quiet that we quite fell in love with it.... More
