Beautiful hotel that is situated in the high end Pacific Heights area of San Fransisco. I loved the fact that it is off the beaten path and away from the hustle and bustle of the busier parts of San Fran. Especially if you are in town as a tourist and are out sight seeing all day or in town for... More

Luxurious hotel. We got a 2 bdrm apartment room which was absolutely beautiful. Only a short walk from both the 'Full House' house and 'Mrs Doubtfire' house. Marti on reception is an absolute asset to the hotel. She was always on hand to recommend places to see and things to do. Will definitely be back the next visit to San... More

Well, if I tell the best secret it won't be a secret anymore. But I will anyway: The Hotel Drisco is the best hotel in San Francisco, with the nicest staff and a bonus of delicious buffet breakfast and a wine tasting at 5:00. The area it is in (Pacific Heights) is elegant and quiet. I will return many times... More

Great stay in Pacific Heights. Beautiful property with attentive service. High-quality, European-style service without being pretentious. Wonderful room service menu with local, fresh, healthy food at reasonable prices. Amazing breakfast--fresh breads, pastries, fruit, smoked salmon, cheese, veggies, coffee, yogurt. Would go here for breakfast even if I wasn't staying here. Loved it.

This was our fourth summer in a row staying at the Hotel Drisco. Each of our stays has been exceptional in every way. The breakfast in the morning is fantastic. The wine reception is great. We stay in a City View room and the views from the room are great. The staff at the hotel are all excellent. They are... More

We loved our stay at this well kept, high-service old hotel. But instead of telling you in detail why we absolutely loved our comfortable, quite room, the attentive and intelligent service and the generous (though continental) breakfasts, I want to warn guests who might be disappointed. The hotel is not air-conditioned, which means you could be warm on the odd... More

Hotel services unmatched. Great experiences with staff Julia, Howard and Shay. Everyone else was great too but they are the ones we had most interaction with. Daily breakfast was plentiful enough and we loved getting hand crafted lattes each am. Nightly wine reception featured different area wines and enough hors d'oeuvres to last through the evening. The room was spacious... More

We spent two nights and enjoyed the surrounds. You are close to the Presidio, which is great for a walk. The Pacific Heights area is beautiful and quiet. The rooms generally have decent views and the décor is old though clean. Everyone raves about the breakfast here which is good but not great. Lots of bread and pastries plus Smoked... More

My friends and I stayed at the Drisco our last evening in San Francisco. What a wonderful hotel - great location, thoughtful service and fantastic amenities. We loved it, and will definitely visit again! My only regret is that we only had one night there!

Very nice staff in the lobby. Easy check in as we booked online. Big king bed room for 2, very clean and no odors at all. The bathroom is large enough and very neat. The mattress is very comfortable and we had a wonderful night without any noise form the hall or the other rooms. The break fast is offered... More
