The best thing about this place was the location. We flew up to San Francisco from Los Angeles for vacation, and took the BART to explore the city. The Sir Francis Drake was a few minutes walk away from the BART station. Everything was clean, and we opted to not get new towels for credit, which I used at the bar for some awesome drinks. We also checked out the nightclub upstairs, but required a cover charge and it didn't look like anything special. The hotel had a creepy vibe to it sometimes in the hallways. This was after we heard about a tragedy that happened at The Cecil hotel in LA.
