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....

This hotel is probably my favorite boutique style hotel I have ever stayed in. It's nice to escape the busy city into a quiet, charming hotel! Rooms are cozy and extremely clean! Customer service is top notch; Very accomodating and friendly! Luxury hotel chains should check out the staff here and learn. Has that "boutique" feel to it from the...

We arrived to spend the weekend following a long trip, we got a suite with an amazing view to the surroundings and the bay.

This is the first Hotel that completely brought us back to the best of the boutique hotels of Europe that we have stayed in.

We won't stay anywhere else when visiting our kids in San Francisco! The hotel is situated in the prettiest neighborhood with lots of sights you can walk to. However, be prepared to walk up and down hills. We can't wait to get back there!
