The Hotel Drisco has many wonderful things to recommend it - beautifully appointed and spotlessly clean rooms, wonderful old-world charm, fantastic breakfast and evening wine receptions, truly impeccable service. Great bath products, many complementary services that you pay for at other hotels. During my stay I felt that the staff did everything possible to make my experience as wonderful as possible. I also love the neighborhood, and did not find parking to be an issue.
I would suggest to the management that they make a point of letting patrons know that the hotel is not air-conditioned, which normally would not be an issue in San Francisco, however in the summer months it can be. It was quite hot while I was there, which meant sleeping with an open window and a fan....and street noise. I did not sleep well because of this. For people considering staying at Hotel Drisco, I would recommend asking for rooms on the upper floors toward the back. The overall feeling at this hotel is one of a high-end B and B, which is fine with me. I would stay there again with the aforementioned adjustments. The staff was amazing!
