I travel to San Francisco for both work and pleasure quite often. Unfortunately, I've experienced some of the worst hotels in this city at very high prices. I found Hotel Drisco after staying at The Citizen, a Joie de Vivre hotel in Sacramento.
Hotel Drisco is located in the exclusive Pacific Heights neighborhood and is surrounded by beautiful and interesting homes. It is away from the hubub of Union Square so it gives a much more authentic San Francisco local "feel." You can take a wonderful walk or run by just stepping out the door!
Here are some of the other positives of this hotel. First, you can park a car right at the property. No parking fees, no valet, no hassle. Breakfast is included with your room, so you're not having to spend $$$ in the morning. Coffee is always available in the living room and a wine and cheese hour is available each evening. Julio, our gracious wine hour host, is an amazing resource for offering suggestions for fabulous local eateries. Each place he recommended was fabulous and relatively inexpensive. The room is very comfortable and nicely appointed and includes free internet access. However, our room was on one of the lowest floors with absolutely no view. That was the only drawback. Next time, I'd pay more and be on an upper floor to see more.
I'm coming back to San Francisco in March, and this will be my hotel of choice for all my next visits!
