We stayed here for 4 days when we arrived for a 3 week trip to california. Our room was on the same level as reception and we had a view over the city. We knew it was located in Pacific Heights and not near Downtown but it is a beautiful neighbourhood with amazing views over the bay, golden gate bridge and Presidio within just a short walk. The staff were fantastic - couldn't have been more helpful - they gave us good recommendations for restaurants and were able to give us clear directions and a map of bus routes (which made getting around town very easy), they were also extremely pleasant and welcoming. The wine and cheese in the evening is a lovely treat after a day on the go! Our room was very clean and the bathroom was excellent. We stayed one more night later in the holiday and were given a room on the dining room level - admittedly this room wasn't just a nice as the first one we'd had but it was just for a night and we were fine with that.
Thank you Hotel Drisco - it was an absolute pleasure staying with you! If we're back in SF some time we'll be back to stay with you!
