Stayed at this hotel while on a business trip to San Francisco. I love older hotels with character and this had plenty starting with the doormen dressed in Beefeater costumers. As with older hotels you will find that the rooms and bathrooms are on the small side. Everything was clean and comfortable but then I can sleep just about anywhere. Lobby bar is definitely a gathering place and LaScala was great for breakfast. To me the real 'gem' of the hotel is the Starlight Room located at the top of the Drake. Classy, old school nightclub with red velvet banquettes and spectacular views of the City. It's magical -- don't miss the Starlight Room if only for a drink or to take in the city views. If you appreciate charming, older hotels within walking distance of Union Square and Chinatown, try the Sir Francis Drake.
