I loved loved loved this hotel. It was the perfect place to stay in San Francisco - surprisingly good value, a view of Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge from the windows, and just walking around the neighbourhood was a delight (all those impossibly beautiful houses). It was only a 10 min walk downhill at night to get to restaurants,...

Dear Guest, I appreciated your comments very much -- so glad you enjoyed the breakfast, the views from your suite and the many other amenities we have on offer. And please accept my sincere apologies for our housekeeping stumble. I have already spoken with my Executive Housekeeper about it. I look forward to seeing you again at breakfast when you...

My wife and I spent a week with the wonderful people at Hotel Drisco and can't wait to go back. Our room was on the top floor and offered a beautiful view to the south, and everyone we encountered (Marti, Eduardo, August, Jon, and many others whose names I've forgotten) was helpful and friendly. Now for the particulars that most...

I can say with no pause that this was the most pleasant stay I have had anywhere. While the building is old, it is maintained so beautifully that any quirk is immediately charming. The staff are all professional and warm at the same time. Every detail of service has been thought out and it does not go unnoticed by the...

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...

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.
