Loved this hotel and would definitely book there again if we go back to SF. The location is outstanding and away from crowds in a lovely neighborhood setting. The staff cannot do enough for their guests! The breakfast each morning (included) was the best I have ever had at ANY establishment. Huge variety, very fresh and delicious.

We started our trip in San Francisco and had a wonderful time at this beautiful hotel! Especially we loved the daily wine tasting in the late afternoon! The whole service personnel are very kind and helpful! We felt like being at home! I don't know why I should write at least 200 signs! If it is necessary I only write... More

This charming, private property lives up to its reputation as one of the best in the city. The staff are extremely helpful and attentive. It's a full-service property, with a full breakfast and pre-dinner wine and canapes all included. The location is excellent, being perched on top of the hill in Pacific Heights, in a quiet, residential area. However the... More

This hotel has an excellent and attentive staff, nice rooms and a great breakfast. I visited with three children ages 3-5 and it was a workout, to say the least, to push a double stroller up the hills to the hotel. The location is beautiful but a bit far from amenities like restaurants. I would definitely recommend the hotel for... More

Real olde worlde charm. Everything is well thought out, and the stafff are all polite and helpful. The hotel is in the Pacific Heights neighbourhood, a gentile residential area, away from the madding crowd. A small boutique, with a pleasant little lounge, and breakfast and afternoon drinks were included. No views, and no air-con (although you don't really need it).... More

Sure the hotel is located on some of the top hills of SFO (you will understand what it means when you walk back to the hotel), sure the area is residential without any shop nearby, sure you are not downtown but... the place is ritzy, safe, quiet, charming, with gorgeous houses and breathtaking views, especially when the summer fog embrace...

We loved this hotel. Old fashioned charm, lovely staff and very comfortable rooms. We would have liked to have stayed longer. Lots of attention to detail and you do not feel as though they are trying to make as money as they can out of you, like other hotels! Good value laundry and room service

A year or so ago, I wrote a very favorable review of the Hotel Drisco, mainly owing to the wonderful treatment my wife and i received from the moment we arrived until we departed. I am happy to report, based on our stay earlier this month, that the hotel's tradition of taking superb care of its guests is intact and... More

The room was lovely, the complimentary breakfast was delicious, the afternoon wine and cheese reception was a great way to relax after a day of hiking, and the staff were all amazing! The location was perfect and within walking distance to several great neighborhood restaurants. We will definitely stay here again!

We choose the Drisco for it's reputation and because we needed to be in Pacific Heights. We love the location for walking in the Presidio and the beautiful surrounding neighborhoods. Easy to take transportation to the museums. The Drisco has lovely personal service and a delicious breakfast with a reasonable fee for outside visitors. Our bed was very comfortable, the... More
