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...

Hotel Drisco was a wonderful place to stay. I would stay there again in an instant and was truly sad to have to leave. The staff was very courteous and the hotel is beautiful. The rooms were very nice and clean, and were also very charming. The breakfast was delicious and they left cookies in my room every night -...

My husband and I had the opportunity to stay at this lovely hotel for my birthday in January. From the time we entered the hotel we were met with the warmest of greetings by the doorman and the reception desk. Parking which is on street only was absolutly not a problem. We were able to walk to really nice restaurants...

I cannot say enough about this hotel. My husband and I live in Sonoma county (not far away) but wanted a nice place to stay for a getaway to San Francisco. Hotel drisco is in one of San Francisco's most beautiful neighborhoods so it was elegant and quiet, with all that the city has to offer within a short drive....

I should start with a bit of background. My boyfriend and I were staying with family in Pacifica on holiday from the uk and only had a couple of nights in the city. We had stayed at Parc 55 the first night and Hotel Drisco was our second and final night in the city. The hotel itself is in Pacific...

Bar None, the best place we have ever stayed in San Francisco in the last 10 trips. We had a fabulous corner suite. This is the second time we have stayed at the hotel. There was never an issue wih service or cleanliness. The location is in a quiet area, yet it is close to the ocean. You can see...

I travel to San Francisco at least ten times per year for business. I've stayed at most of the great SF hotels (and many of the not-so-great ones!). But I keep coming back to The Drisco. It is charming without being precious, elegant without being pretentious, quiet without being moribund, solicitous without being unctuous... in short, an old-world style hotel...

The Drisco always draws us back; warm and full of light and perfect in scale and comfort! I feel like I am walking into the foyer of my own home. Fresh basket of apples and mints in the front hall, always fresh coffee & tea & orange water in the 'living room', amazing happy hour w/wine,cheese, olives, & nuts. Friendly,...

Away from the hustle & bustle of the Financial District & SoMa areas, the Hotel Drisco in Pacific Heights offers a quiet oasis when traveling away from home. The friendly staff is very helpful and responsive, and the amenities make travel a pleasure once again, instead of a dreaded duty! Quiet, clean & tidy, with coffee available around the clock,...
