We really enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Drisco. We had a lovely spacious suite with a great view over the city. The service was warm and the hotel wonderfully peaceful. The location is wonderful for people (like us) who don't want to stay in the thick of touristy San Francisco. It is in a safe neighbourhood, with great resturaunts and bars and parks just a short - but very hilly - walk away. Very good for walking off all that great californian food! There is great public transport very nearby.
We loved staying there - we had time to rest, recuperate and explore the city. And we hope to return.
