Hotel Drisco is by far the most comfortable and luxurious hotel in San Francisco. The Drisco's location in Pacific Heights allows the traveler to be out of the way of the crowds and noise, and to enjoy the beauty of the City, while being moments away from many of the top attractions, such as Golden Gate Park, the Japanese Tea Garden, the art museums, and the California Academy of Sciences. We have stayed at the Drisco many times, but this visit was truly extraordinary. The hotel has added so many elegant food items, such as delicious custom made omelets to their breakfast buffet, that they are now offering their guests a full breakfast, all included in the price of the room. There is also a nightly wine event included, complete with elegant food offerings. We stayed in a City View Suite, which was very large and comfortable, sunny, whisper quiet, and offered a panoramic view of San Francisco, along with a huge and delightfully comfortable bed, a living room area, a large TV, and a bath complete with heated floors, rain shower and luxury toiletries. Did I mention the soft, thick terry robes and slippers? A treat not to be missed! The wonderful staff is always ready to provide guests with anything they might require. There is even a morning car service to take guests wherever they might wish to go. Do not miss a chance to stay at Hotel Drisco!

Hotel's Favorite
Hotel Drisco not only met the expectations but exceeded 110%. No Covid excuses to limit services or amenities, just 1st class of everything that left you feeling great that you chose this hotel to stay. Yes the amenities were outstanding , bathroom had everything you could ask for, shower was excellent , the beds more then comfortable and you had a choice of the type of pillow you wanted. Breakfast is included and is outstanding well beyond anyones expectations. There is a wine hour with snacks every evening also part of your stay. Then here is the best part all the staff were magnificent, friendly and made me feel as if I was staying with my family ( the ones I like) If you are in San Francisco don’t even think about another hotel, nothing else comes close.

The Drisco has maintained its standards for at least the last 30 years. The service is outstanding even in this post-pandemic era when staffing shortages are everywhere. It is notable how the staff that worked here before the pandemic have mostly come back. That speaks volumes as to how this company treats its staff members. The hotel’s location is far out of the way, which is a disadvantage for some, but a huge advantage for those seeking a peaceful retreat in the city. A few tweaks to the morning breakfast and evening happy hour have made what was an exceptional experience even better.

An experience that defines the meaning of unbelievable. Start off with breakfast. Oh my gosh. A variety of freshly squeezed juices . And then take a look at the beyond fresh array of fruits, the freshness that you wish you had available at your house. Do you like wonderfully stirred oatmeal? Yes you do. Really nicely done. And if you are of the yogurt persuasion: well, a wonderful array. Cereal, cheeses, lox, fresh jams and jellies, a vast variety of stuff to stuff on your tray as many times as you want. Did I mention the sweet rolls? Or cakes? Opppps. Ah, coffee! Yes, as with so much else, you can choose if you want a latte or plain old--very good--coffee. Do you want an omelet? Custom made. Now to later on in the day: A wine tasting that is awesome. And a vast array of little appetizers. Beyond the gread beyond.

I was delighted to discovery this amazing, quaint hotel in Pacific Heights when visiting my son. Everything was exceptional from the welcome I received to the exquisite bedding and amenities in my room. The evening reception, which is included in the room rate, offered many great wine choices as well as an array of delicious hors d'euvres. The breakfast in the morning was also wonderful! I loved it so much I am planning another visit in a few weeks. I would highly recommend this hotel!!

Boutique hotel with comfortable spacious clean rooms, a delicious buffet breakfast and a wonderful wine buffet from 5-7 pm. It also has a small but adequate gym with a peleton bike. You can reserve free bikes for getting around the area-and free transportation in the am for going anywhere in San Francisco. A gem beyond compare!

The Hotel Drisco is a lovely boutique hotel in the nice Pacific Heights neighborhood of San Francisco. Their staff was friendly and helpful and attentive. Our room was very comfortable with extremely comfortable bedding. The rooms were quiet. The breakfast buffet and evening wine happy hour were very good.

Simply lovely! We enjoyed easy street parking and help with our bags at this truly classic, charming, beautiful and spotless hotel. Hotel Drisco is elegant but not stuffy at all. All of the staff greeted us so warmly, and the wine & appetizers reception and breakfast were far more than expected and great! We’ll be back.

I can’t imagine visiting San Fran and staying anywhere else. This hotel has everything - a bountiful breakfast, well appointed rooms with fantastic views, complimentary happy hour, walking distance to restaurants, shops, and hiking in the Presidio, and nice (surprise) touches throughout the visit. The best thing, though, was the welcoming, accommodating, and just kind staff. We were made to feel like royalty, without the formality.

This was my first time staying at the Hotel Drisco. Wow! What a fantastic experience - everything about this place shows that they really thought about the customer experience- from check in, to the all of the helpful things in the room, to the best - by far - wine and food event every night and the fantastic breakfast each morning. All the staff was friendly and knowledgeable. And the location is beautiful among the mansions of Pacific Heights. I won't stay any where else when I go to San Francisco.
