I recently attended business meetings at the Hotel Drisco and was very much impressed. On first blush, it's a little off the beaten tourism track and my usual Union Square haunts. However, the hotel is located in a beautiful neighborhood within easy walking distance to Presidio and up the hill from Filmore shopping, Be sure to do the Lyon Street stairs - three or four blocks of stairways fronting some mansions with a beautiful bay view.
About the title of the review...the hotel has no parking, however, after a pretty easy search for street parking, I provided the front desk with my keys and they dealt with moving my car for the street sweeping and other parking restrictions. So, if you use your car during your stay, you do have to hunt for street parking when you return, but it's free and that's a rarity in San Francisco. I'll take it.
Hotel was excellent - good service, a plethora of amenities, a great continental breakfast (they serve coffee with the self-service breakfast, which is a nice touch - "will you have an Americano again this morning, sir?"). Rooms were great and I slept very well, so all good in the sleep department.
I was so impressed, I made reservations to return with my family in two weeks - I can't wait to share the Hotel Drisco experience with them.
