This hotel was not what we had hoped for, especially for the price paid. We had one of the rooms on the main floor and perhaps this was the problem. We were right by the staircase which caused a lot of noise. People would be going to the airport early in the morning, banging their luggage and it would keep...

Dear Guest, I am very sorry that we did not meet your expectations on your recent stay with us. It always distresses me when a guest does not have an excellent experience at my hotel. Your review presents me with the opportunity to stress to the Trip Advisor community that the Hotel Drisco is quite simply not the perfect hotel...

Everything about this little hotel is wonderful. Staff is courteous and kind and extremely thoughtful and accommodating. The rooms are impeccably clean and perfectly appointed all the way to the top-notch mini toiletries. It is beautiful, serene and cozy. Everything here made me feel relaxed and comfy and happy. And what an amazing location! Stand at the corner and look...

A wonder hotel choice for San Francisco. On the journey to the hotel, our driver asked us why we chose this hotel cause it was far out of the tourist areas. This started to worry us because he made it sound a long way out. But when we arrived, the bellman was telling us about the area and asked us...

Beautiful hotel, rooms and suites. Service in the old world tradition. Cleanliness not paralleled in any hotel I have been in recently. A complimentary breakfast buffet to die for. Evening wine and snacks which were excellent. This is a luxury hotel that is worth the extra money. I Recommend this hotel without any reservation.

My husband and I recently celebrated our 10th anniversary at the Hotel Drisco. We discovered this Pacific Heights' gem many years ago and have made it a destination every time we have visited San Francisco (3+ times). It is located on the corner of a beautiful street in Pacific Heights. The Hotel radiates a classic Old World charm that is...

For a one night get away from a one year old baby and getting in to San Francisco to celebrate a wedding, we decided to splurge a little on a luxurious hotel, and the Drisco was absolutely worth it. I was so impressed when calling for an early check in, to be treated with courtesy, none of the typical runaround...

My husband and I recently chose this hotel for our first visit to San Francisco. Prior to arriving, we had contacted the concierge (Bob) to inquire about dinner suggestions and activities while there. He was extremely helpful and catered his suggestions to our needs. As we only had a couple of days, we wanted to make sure that we made...

Beautiful hotel & neighborhood. Great staff, from front desk to bellmen to cleaning. Excellent breakfast. Spotless. But if you are a family of 4, with 2 teens that want their own rooms, the 2 bedroom suite is what makes this place unbeatable. We've tried all sorts of suites, used roll-aways, had to get 2 rooms. This suite was the best....

My husband and I stayed 2 nights at Hotel Drisco during our honeymoon to Northern California. We were excited about the hotel just from what we saw online and in other guests' reviews. San Francisco has lots of great hotels, but for our honeymoon we wanted something quintessentially San Francisco beyond the cookie cutter chain hotels and the cold, modern...
