Before I comment on the Hotel facilities can I say we found the service outstanding.

Dear Guest, I was charmed by your lovely review -- thank you for posting. I thought that your description of our 109 year-old building as "well burnished" was particularly apt. Regrettably many older hotels attempt to pass of decrepit conditions as charm, whereas at the Drisco we invest heavily in maintaining the immaculate working order of all our facilities while...

My husband and I stayed 7 nights in this wonderful hotel. It was our first time in San Francisco so we didn't know what to expect or where to stay. After being there for a week we now realize that we stayed in a perfect location for us! Pacific Heights is breathtaking with the gigantic hills and beautiful mansions. The...

Far away from the hustle and bustle of San Francisco in one of the most gorgeous neighborhoods anywhere is the Hotel Drisco. Maybe it stays that way because there isn't a direct train to the area, and I hope it stays that way. The staff at the hotel, especially Marti, could not be finer; the buffet breakfast one of the...

This is the place I would go back to, primarily because of the location and the service. It is one of the few hotels on Pacific Heights, which is the nicest residential area in San Fransisco.

Each time I return to the Drisco Hotel, I find something else to love about it.
