We have just finished a 3 night stay at the Hotel Drisco in San Francisco. We booked this hotel based on the fantastic Tripadvisor reviews and as part of a California tour to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary.
The hotel is beautiful and located in a very classy area in the city and after walking most of the sights we were very pleased to have chosen this location as some of the other more touristy areas were a little too lively for my liking.
That said the hotel is a good walk up the hill and you need to be either very fit and able to walk or prepared to book taxis back after a day/night out, we choose the active option and walked the hills and my legs certainly know about it !!
The hotel offers some lovely little added extras, which includes plentiful complimentary bottled water in the rooms, luxury toiletries and morning papers.
The breakfast is continental with a wide selection of bread and pastries with jams and preserves, a good selection of teas and coffee and fresh fruit or porridge plenty to start the day off well and we found that we didn't need to eat again until mid afternoon
Every evening there is a complimentary wine and cheese event which lasts from 5 to 630pm which gives guests the opportunity to sit, relax and have a chat after a busy days sightseeing.
We stayed in a suite (room 103) which was very spacious, with beautiful views over the city, the room though was on the lower floor and I found it to be fairly noisy of an evening and so had restless nights as you can hear quite clearly noises from neighbouring rooms, I am not sure if rooms on the higher floors may have been quieter, I also believe there are supposed to be coffee machines in the suites which we didn't have in our room, however as we were on the ground floor near the sitting room it wasn't too much of a bind to pop and fetch a drink from there and there was always a good selection with the area kept exceptionally clean and tidy.
We found all of the staff very helpful and friendly and overall had a very lovely stay in a beautiful city.
