At the end of a five week study tour/holiday through the US, this was my last stop and I'm so glad it was - what a lovely way to end my tour. The staff were warm, friendly and very knowledgable, and happy to help in any way. The room was gorgeous with a lovely view and all the amenities I... More

We stayed for seven nights at Hotel Drisco recently. It was a fantastic place, an extremely elegant building in Pacific Heights and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was spotless and spacious with a good view, the bed and pillows very comfortable, the bathroom was extremely clean (something which I am very fussy about!), there was tea... More

My husband and I stayed for three nights while I was down in San Francisco attending training. We normally stay at a little hotel in the Union Square area, but the panhandling, noise, and crowds got tedious. I found this hotel and chose it because of its location and we weren't disappointed! The street parking in our F-250 extended cab... More

I visited family who live nearby in the Presidio area over my birthday weekend. It was a wonderful home away from home when I wasn't with them. My room was small but perfect -- they could not have thought of anything more to make my stay more pleasant. The staff was friendly and helpful and the complimentary European-style breakfast was...

Wow! We came here with our two kids over the Easter weekend and were treated like royalty. From the reception to the end of our stay, we could not have asked for better service or a more comfortable room. The concierge service (Michael, in particular) is pleasant and helpful. (The GM of the hotel is also very attentive to any... More

My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Drisco for three nights. The bed was comfortable, the room was spotless, the room rate included a large and varied continental breakfast with excellent coffee. The staff was helpful and answered all of our questions about places to go and things to see. As the hotel is in Pacific Heights, it is... More

We stayed at the Hotel Drisco for 5 nights. It was completely faultless, clean, wonderful view (from our room anyway) and the service was second to none. We arrived in San Francisco after a week and a half in Vegas and San Diego and the hotels we stayed in there did not compare in any way. The hotel is located... More

If you want something far more than a "nice hotel room" to stay while in SF, you will be absolutely delighted with the Hotel Drisco. It's like being in an an historic SF apartment with heavy doors, thick moulding, beautiful linens and fantastic amenities that you won't find at other hotels. The fresh fruit, breakfast buffet, internet access, location (wonderful... More

My husband and I recently had the pleasure of staying at the Hotel Drisco during a recent visit to our daughter who lives in San Francisco. And what a delightful stay it was. We had been told by our daughter how lovely and intimate the Hotel Drisco was. Yes, the drisco is indeed very beautiful and elegant - but we... More

After seeing the corner suite on the 3rd floor, which we were told was surprisingly available, and the room we had reserved, which had an internal view, we were persuaded to upgrade to a suite for the bargain price of $244 per night. The views ot the city and water with the sunshine streaming in sold us and made it... More
