We started our trip around California from San Francisco and this was a perfect place to stay on the tail end of the trip after two busy weeks of travelling and sightseeing. It's nice to be out of the business of downtown in this amazing neighbourhood. We reserved a king bed room for under $200 a night, and it was... More

Stayed here for 4 days in a small suite with a king-size bed. At first I was a little concerned because the suite lacked a view as it was on the first floor, but then discovered how quiet it was and how comfy the bed was. Slept like babies. The room smelled so very fresh. The wine and cheese reception... More

I have stayed numerous times at this hotel. The service is always impeccable. The morning buffet breakfast is a wonderful way to start your day. It is a quiet and prestigious location of Pacific Heights. Try a large corner two room suite on the 4th floor with a king bed. This is my very favorite hotel in all of san... More

As an earlier review noted, the Drisco feels like a hotel in Paris -- small, comfortable, quiet, and elegant without being showy. The service is impeccable, the front desk personnel knowledgeable and courteous. Rooms are lovely and well-appointed, and there're common areas off the lobby (where coffee is available at all hours) and on the ground floor, where an extensive... More

This hotel was everything that the trip advisor postings say. It really was a wonderful hotel. We stayed in the Pacific Suite and the room was very spacious. We loved the location because it was somewhat away from the craziness of the city yet close enough to be part of whatever action we chose to be a part of. There... More

We really enjoyed this small, boutique hotel and not just because we got upgraded to a suite (although it was great!). This hotel was perfect for the purpose of our stay--to end our vacation in a relaxing and comfortable fashion. The staff were so eager to please and the special touches throughout the stay (fruit in our room upon arrival,... More

We had a deluxe king on the ground floor, just around from the reception desk, and it was very spacious with a huge bathroom. Spotlessly clean, and very comfortable bed. Very accommodating when we had to reschedule due to the Icelandic volcano eruption. Excellent service all round. Staff at reception couldn't be more helpful. After busy days sightseeing we twice...

I chose the Hotel Drisco because it was just a few blocks from my grandson's apt. I discovered a gem! Small, quiet with personalized service with a genuine smail. The breafasts were satisfying and I enjoyed the wine and cheese receptions held every evening. The location is convenient to several bus routes so going to retaurants and shopping boutique stores...
