Having read some reviews we were expecting this hotel to be a bit tired, but in actual fact we were very pleasantly surprised. We would describe the Drisco as an elegant lady. It has old world charm, is spotlessly clean, and has staff who are genuinely keen to please and clearly want to provide excellent service. There are lots of complementary extras that you receive when you stay here including wine tasting each evening. the whole experience was very positive.
The Drisco is located in Pacific Heights, a wealthy neighbourhood, with beautiful buildings. As the name suggests, it is high up and we walked up and down many hills and steps during our stay there. For us, this was not an issue. We love walking and you pass some stunning real estate that you would not see if you stay in the tourist areas like Union Square. The Hotel does provide a complementary transfer service each morning into the 'city', and we made use of this a couple of times during our stay.
If you want to be in the centre of the hustle and bustle then this hotel is probably not for you. For us, it's location was perfect - quiet area, beautiful views, and away from the noise and seedier side of downtown SF.
We can't thank the staff at the Drisco enough. We really did enjoy our stay and would highly recommend this hotel.
