I took my girlfriend here last month as a special celebration of her 50th birthday and it is almost impossible to overstate our satisfaction with our stay. No, the hotel is not inexpensive. But the memories of our time there are, in the words of the commercial, "priceless." From the moment I made the reservation, the staff of Hotel Drisco was there to help. From recommendations for a local spa (Senspa), to dinner in the city (Kokkari) to picking up an order of flowers for us, Hotel Drisco is the very definition of Service. Their breakfast is amazing in its quality and variety. The hotel is a supremely elegant building in a magnificent part of the city and has spectacular views of the bay and the skyline. The rooms are luxurious without being over the top. And while all of these qualities are reason enough to give this hotel 5 stars, what lingers with us longest is the unabashed warmth and professionalism of the staff. As others have noted, the people of Hotel Drisco do whatever it takes to make sure you enjoy your stay with them and they do so with a directness and humility that begs the question after staying with them: why would someone ever even consider staying anywhere else?
