Love this boutique hotel in Pac Heights. It's quiet and tranquil while still being conveniently located and walkable. Awesome staff and ambiance. Bonuses are the complimentary breakfast and evening wine hour!

We stayed here for a few nights over Thanksgiving, and it was the best hotel experience we've ever had in SF. Luxurious and family friendly at the same time. Charming rooms, stylish decor, incredibly accommodating staff, delicious free breakfast, fun wine hour, and perfect location in Pac Heights. We loved walking through the neighborhood and then coming back to our...

My favorite hotel in San Francisco hands down! The staff here are extremely accommodating and helpful. The location is perfect as it is in a quiet neighborhood but a quick walk to shops and restaurants. The rooms are beautiful, comfortable, and spotless. Can't wait to come back again!

I had to have some medical procedures at UCSF and was so grateful for this charming, comfortable hotel to stay during a hard time. The staff was kind, the room was cozy, and I loved the afternoon wine hour. I will have to return another time for a more romantic occasion with my husband!!

Hotel Drisco is wonderfully located in a quiet neighborhood, but just a short and walkable distance to restaurants and shopping. The place is great and the staff very accommodating. The evening wine hour with appetisers was an added treat.

Sadly the "Drisco" is under renovation. We will wait anxiously to see how this "upgrade" impacts this wonderful, truly neighborhood boutique hotel emerges from this. So let me reflect on the "old" Drisco, wonderful staff, luxurious rooms, the best breakfast & the best "happy hour" in the city. The true gem of Pacific Heights, I am holding my breath to...

One of our delights of our trips to San Francisco to visit family is our stays at the Hotel Drisco. The hotel has an old world ambiance located in a quiet, upscale area of San Francisco. Our rooms have always been spacious, quiet and clean. The beds are comfortable. The staff is outstanding and caring catering to our every need....

We stayed here for our first trip to San Francisco. Not knowing the area very well, we picked the hotel we liked the best. We weren't disappointed! It's in the Pacific Heights area which we found to be very upscale, quiet and safe. So you're not going to be in the city. There are places to walk to eat and...

My wife and I stayed at Hotel Drisco for 5 nights in August 2016. We were so glad we did. Just about everything was as good as it gets. Staff were patient and helpful and our rooms spacious. I say rooms because our first room was underneath the room of an energetic child which was disturbing. We were moved to...

My husband and I had the opportunity to stay at this lovely hotel in December 2016. Everything about the hotel was top notch. I am in the hotel industry, so finding a hotel that meets my standards in all aspects is tough to do, even ask my husband! I am not a picky person but I know what it takes...
