I had booked this hotel based on a recommendation from the friend we were visiting that lives nearby, but we ended up canceling our reservation the day before we were due to arrive. I was reading reviews on TripAdvisor and noticed someone mentioned the room did not have aircon. I called the hotel and was informed that there is no aircon in the whole hotel. I was told no one ever has an issue with this, but I wasn’t going to take this risk. Thankfully we changed hotels as the weekend that we were in SF turned out to be the hottest of the year. From all reports this is a lovely hotel but it would be good if it was clearly displayed on their website as it is rare for a hotel to not have this amenity.

Response from John S, General Manager at Hotel Drisco Pacific Heights
Responded 4 days ago
Dear Kenno12, I'm sorry that you decided not to stay with us. And you are correct that the hotel does not have air conditioning. It is not uncommon for a historic structure like the Hotel Drisco (constructed in 1903) to not have this amenity, as it is so rarely needed in San Francisco. Kind Regards, John Spear General Manager

Friendly, helpful & knowledgeable staff. Great location with excellent hotel taxi service into & around San Francisco. Our highlight being John's evening selections from the excellent array of local wines and cheeses. Plentiful & sumptuous breakfast buffet. Luxurious suite and comfortable beds. Evening chocolate shortbread treat. Tea & coffee available daily in the beautiful guest reception. In fact the whole Hotel Drisco team and package made our first visit to San Francisco very,very special. If we do find ourselves back in San Francisco again - there's only one hotel we'll be staying at - Hotel Drisco.

Having read multiple reviews not only on here but also Yelp and a few other sites, I decided to book our 3 night stay at Hotel Drisco and my wife and I are so glad we did. From the multiple conversations with Shay before we arrived to confirm everything was set with regards to transportation and hotel accommodations. We arranged to be picked up at SFO with their driver and he was right on time and provided a great welcome to the city. The room was available when we checked in around 2:30 and the top floor room was fantastic. We were celebrating our 5 year anniversary and we were welcomed to a bottle of champagne and a card welcoming us. The daily happy hour provided some great choices of wine and also meats and cheeses to take away our appetite. Every night we slept with the windows open and enjoyed the fresh air and sounds of the city. The breakfast they hosted in the dining room was out of this world. From the freshly squeezed juices to the pasties and fruit, this was more than enough to fill us up for the morning. The room itself was just the right size with a comfortable bed and a huge bathroom; the Bulgari toiletries were top notch. The free car service we used twice and this was a great extra. The location in the neighborhood was such a great plus and the parking was no problem for the one night we had our rental car. My wife and I were sad to leave the Drisco but we know this will not be our last time coming here and cannot wait for our next trip out west.

We have fallen in love with Hotel Drisco! We visit San Francisco often, and have stayed in many of its famous hotels, but none of them begin to compare with Hotel Drisco for comfort, luxury, service, and dining experience. From the moment you enter the beautiful lobby of Hotel Drisco, the exceptionally kind and personable staff attends to your every need, and you feel welcome and at home. Our charming Pacific Heights view suite was large, luxurious, and quiet, and offered every amenity, including a bowl of delicious fruit, bath stocked with Bulgari toiletries, heavenly soft robes to lounge in, a marvelously comfortable bed, complimentary slippers, and cookies. The complimentary breakfast is amazing, with homemade scones and other pastries, bacon, fruit, smoked salmon, cheese, etc., etc., etc., plus the world's best coffee! There is also an evening complimentary wine tasting, with unique tasty snacks, and a 24-hour menu of delectable and unique food items. This hotel is a real treat---a sanctuary in the City, where you can truly relax and unwind.
