Stayed at the Hotel Drisco on the advice from this board for two nights last week. The hotel is like a "mini-Ritz Carlton" in many ways - nice decor, nice amenities (Aveda products, comp water, good honor bar). Service was great - very nice and helpful. They paid for the cab in the AM when the car service was late... More

My experience is based on a short stay during mid-week for a business trip. First of all the Pacific Heights area is really residential, quiet and old world elegant. There are many absolutely gorgeous homes in the surrounding area. One can see the water views standing on the street corner outside. With that said, if you are the typical tourist,... More

I had been looking at small, upscale boutique hotels located in a quiet section of San Francisco. I had read some of the previous reviews and decided to try Hotel Drisco. It is worthy of all of the excellent reviews. The staff was more than helpful in every way. As I am a female traveling alone, I am very conscious... More

The Drisco Hotel was one of the highlights of our stay in San Francisco, despite a cold and rainy weekend. Our room was tastefully decorated, spotless, and comfortable. The breakfasts were delicious. The views from the hotel are breathtaking, and the location is excellent: walking distance to Presidio Park and to numerous fine restaurants and easy bus access to most... More

We stayed for 3 nights from 2-5 March inclusive. All the staff without exception were very hospitable, courtious and helpful. We had a suite and again this was a very good size, attractive and well maintained. The breakfast in the morning was very good and there was always plenty of everything. We would definitely stay again and would recommend it... More

The Drisco is the perfect boutique hotel located away from the major tourist thoroughfares, yet close to many great locations. The neighborhood is great and public transportation is close, so getting around was never a problem. The room was clean, comfortable, and had a great view of the city from the top of the hill. Our favorite thing about the... More

We stayed at the Drisco for business in San Francisco. There was a large group of us and we had meetings scheduled in the hotel for several days. Gerard and his staff were most helpful and gracious. Every request was quickly taken care of, and all of the staff were warm, and professional. The loccation can't be beat - We... More

I chose the Hotel Drisco because I had often admired it while walking around the city in years past, and I hoped it would be the perfect base for my homecoming. I thought the hotel itself beautiful and charming, the breakfast buffet bountiful, and the evening wine hour a lovely touch. I also appreciated the Aveda toiletries, the CD player,... More

My husband and I actually live in San Francisco, but spent a few weekends a year at the Hotel Drisco. With it's outstanding upscale neighborhood location (Pacific Heights), it's the perfect spot for a relaxing getaway. And within walking distance to many locations including a fantastic view of the bay. The rooms are comfortable and chic, the bathrooms are luxurious... More

My fiance and I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights over the x-mas holiday. Firts of all, the location is beautiful, nestled in the middle of Pacific Heights, which is essentially several square blocks of mostly older mini-mansions. Parking was never a problem right on the street alongside the hotel. At check-in, we were told we were upgraded to... More
