Hotel Drisco is wonderfully located in a quiet neighborhood, but just a short and walkable distance to restaurants and shopping. The place is great and the staff very accommodating. The evening wine hour with appetisers was an added treat.

Sadly the "Drisco" is under renovation. We will wait anxiously to see how this "upgrade" impacts this wonderful, truly neighborhood boutique hotel emerges from this. So let me reflect on the "old" Drisco, wonderful staff, luxurious rooms, the best breakfast & the best "happy hour" in the city. The true gem of Pacific Heights, I am holding my breath to...

One of our delights of our trips to San Francisco to visit family is our stays at the Hotel Drisco. The hotel has an old world ambiance located in a quiet, upscale area of San Francisco. Our rooms have always been spacious, quiet and clean. The beds are comfortable. The staff is outstanding and caring catering to our every need....

We stayed here for our first trip to San Francisco. Not knowing the area very well, we picked the hotel we liked the best. We weren't disappointed! It's in the Pacific Heights area which we found to be very upscale, quiet and safe. So you're not going to be in the city. There are places to walk to eat and...

My wife and I stayed at Hotel Drisco for 5 nights in August 2016. We were so glad we did. Just about everything was as good as it gets. Staff were patient and helpful and our rooms spacious. I say rooms because our first room was underneath the room of an energetic child which was disturbing. We were moved to...

My husband and I had the opportunity to stay at this lovely hotel in December 2016. Everything about the hotel was top notch. I am in the hotel industry, so finding a hotel that meets my standards in all aspects is tough to do, even ask my husband! I am not a picky person but I know what it takes...

We arrived tired and hungry for a one night stay. We were encouraged to go right away to the dining / wine reception area before it closed We were delighted to find excellent service, wine and food - all included in the room charge.

A friend in the hospitality business recommended the Hotel Drisco for a relaxing weekend getaway, and we in turn can't recommend it highly enough as a special treat. My wife and I were looking for a chance to break our routine and re-connect, and Hotel Drisco had everything we needed. The wine and cheese reception was relaxed and delicious, and...

Charming, a very San Francisco hotel property. located in a (five star) ***** star residential neighborhood, Pacific Heights. You will be away from the tourist lore and be among city residents. You will need a rental cat or need to have a Black UBER account, to get around! Forget about PT and MUNI! Five minutes from Cow Hollow, the Marina...

From Mardi and Bob on the front desk, attending to our every need, to the great quality breakfast, this was a fantastic stay. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening wine and canapes and the homely nature of the hotel. The area, whilst out of the main city centre, presented great opportunities to walk to the Presidio and enjoy the splendid neighbourhood....
