This is a great hotel in a residential area. The rooms are large and the staff is terrific. It's not a normal full-service hotel -- there is not a valet, a restaurant or room service, although the hotel offers a big continental breakfast and sandwhiches at other times of day. Parking is only available on the street, so be prepared...

This upmarket hotel is located in Pacific Heights, a gentrified suburb of San Francisco. Quiet and safe streets, filled with huge old mansions make, make the location great. We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights. The room (306B) had great views over the city and we could see the sunrise over San Francisco from our bed. The decor was...

Hotel Drisco does not feel like a sterile hotel. It feels like home. The wine and cheese reception and the morning breakfast are two strong contributing factors to the home atmosphere. The server in the dining area is most attentive and describes all the cheeses with accurate detail on flavor and origin. The car into the business district in the...

The Drisco is a great low-key old hotel in the very upscale residential neighborhood of Pacific Heights. A very attentive and helpful staff plus a more than adequate continental breakfast.

Loved this hotel, we stayed twice in the last year. My suggestion is to avoid rooms near the elevator or on the main floor. If you want to save some money, consider the King with the bathroom across the hall- it's still very private! Great breakfast, nice wine reception. Really great neighborhood to walk in and if you want to...

I have never written a review on trip advisor, although I typically read the reviews. I could not go without thanking the staff at Hotel Drisco for making my husbands birthday the best experience at a hotel. Marti, Bob, and Julio were all so wonderful, we were made to feel so special. Upon arriving, there was no problem parking. Bob...

The Hotel Drisco is in a beautiful neighborhood location in Pacific Heights. We loved the intimate European styling of this warmly decorated boutique hotel. Wine & cheese happy hour was a nice touch and the home style sitting rooms were very relaxing. We will be back!

The Drisco lets you feel that you are really living in San Francisco, living of course in the absolute best neighborhood in the city. This is not tourist San Francisco: you are close to the beach, hiking trails, great restaurants, and shopping, much like some of the most charming and exclusive European boutique hotels. My husband and I treat the...

Always enjoy my stays at the Drisco. Was pleasantly surprised to see improvements on top of an already established class act. Additions and upgrades to both breakfast and wine/cheese hour spreads. It was a full compliment with nothing left out. Some of the morning upgrades include top of the line teas, fresh deli offerings, etc. For the evening offering; higher...

Our daughter has lived in the city for 8 years. We visit often and have stayed at more SF hotels than I can count. This was our 2nd time at The Hotel Drisco, and it is by far the most pleasant lodging we have run across. It's a charming place that is VERY clean and well taken care of. A...
