“Fabulous place to spend a week in San Francisco 10/10 !!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2012

We booked Hotel Drisco for a week so we were based somewhere for more than a couple of days for my 50th birthday. It was fantastic, very authentic historic hotel, maintained and serviced wonderfully. We loved it. I could rave on and on but I won't. I will end with saying I had a wonderful birthday and would definitely stay there again if I could. 10/10

Room Tip: Book City View Suite - Room 406a - You will LOVE it !!!!

We're more large hotel type people.After doing some research I came up with this hotel and took a chance.turns out we won big time.The staff was excellent,everyone was as helpful as can be.The continental breakfast was a gourmet treat,and the wine and cheese in the afternoon was very nice.The room we stayed in although not large was very nice,clean and fitted with many personal touches that showed someone put some thought into every detail.The welcoming living room area with complimentary coffee and teas hit the spot.The location was an unexpected delight since it is located in a the quiet neighborhood of Pacific heights.We were delighted with this find and would strongly recommend this hotel to friends and family.

We stayed at Hotel Drisco as part of the "California leg" of our honeymoon. What can I say: it was perfect. We had been in SF a couple of times before, always staying in the Wharf area, where the large Hotel companies have some of their properties. Well, I´m never staying at the Wharf or Union Square area again, I will always try to go back to the Drisco.

Upon check in, we had a King room with a city view reserved for us, 206 A (there are few, most of the kings I understand, look into a patio, so this was a nice gesture). When we entered the room, the view was beautiful and breathtaking, and we had a bottle of champagne waiting for us, with a very warm note on how they wish we return to the Drisco to celebrate anniversaries (we certainly hope to!).

We never had an issue to park just around the corner to the hotel entrance. All staff and housekeeping was great and helpful. European-style breakfast is delicious, and the wines in the evening tasting were good. And to top it all off... the neighborhood!!

Perfect boutique hotel in the middle of the residential part of the wonderful Pacific Heights neighborhood. Outstanding service, comfortable well appointed room with city vistas, great breakfast included in the reasonable price. If you don't have to be in the middle of the business district, this is the place to be.

This place was really magical; it gave us the quintessential San Francisco experience. Perched atop Pacific Heights among the beautiful mansions of this quiet neighborhood, it's a jewel of an old hotel, built in 1903 as a rooming house and impeccably renovated and maintained as a hotel. My husband and I came here with our adult daughter for a one-night visit to the City.

I have to admit that my positive experience was influenced by the City View Corner Suite to which we upgraded. They offered us the upgrade when we checked in (maybe because it was the low season?) for only $75 more (which the doorman pointed out was really only a net increase of $50, since we'd have needed a rollaway in our original room which would have cost an additional $25). Anyway, we took it, and the suite plus the view of SF were so beautiful that we almost didn't want to go out and sight-see!



The staff were all genuinely friendly and eager to help us. Marty at the front desk was great, as was Bob, the concierge-- what a guy.

Special commendation for the mattress and sumptuous linens, the impeccably clean and well-maintained rooms, and lovely bathroom. And they offered so many little indulgences to guests -- evening wine-tasting, 24-hour coffee and tea service in the sitting room, a basket of fruit in our room on arrival, cookies with turn-down service, an ambient sound machine (not that there was much street noise to mask), a nice line of toiletries, pillow menu, etc. They even called me 3 days prior to our arrival to confirm our reservation -- a considerate gesture, since they have a 3-day advance cancellation policy.

My only criticisms would be the full breakfast, which was well presented but not very good food with well-meaning but rushed and overwhelmed staff. Also, the walls seemed well insulated from sound but not the ceiling -- we could hear people walking above us pretty easily.
