“Without a doubt we will be back!”
It is located in an amazing neighborhood that is safe and beautiful. The staff constantly asked if they could do more for us. The breakfast choices offered were excellent! The personality came from the age of the hotel - we loved it!
“A classy hotel off the beaten path on the quiet summit of Pacific Heights”
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Though off the beaten path and far removed from the touristy areas, the Hotel Drisco is situated on the summit of the Pacific Heights neighborhood smack dab in a quiet residential area of multi-million dollar homes. Adorned with vintage furnishings, the accommodations were comfortable and charming and definitely four star quality as advertised. Expecting a typical all inclusive "continental breakfast" fare, we were quite surprised by the extensive offerings of fresh squeezed OJ, coffeees, teas, pastries, bagles, oatmeal, signature jellies, and fruit provided in an elegant front parlor on a daily basis. My wife and I consider ourselves to be seasoned travelers and I must confess that the conceirge service from the front desk staff (Elizabeth & Bob) was the best we've experienced. Always pleasant and extremely helpful, their recommendations were dead on and much appreciated. Our only criticism would be that getting around from that location required calling a cab or walking a few blocks to get public transportation...and walking meant traversing the hills of San Francisco which qualifies as a cardio workout.
We enjoyed the walk around the neighborhood with the brochure provided by the hotel. Very nice breakfast.
“Best hotel anywhere near Pacific Heights!”
the staff at this hotel, from front desk to bellman to housekeeping, is extremely warm and accommodating. lots of charm and elegance. wonderful free breakfast and wine & cheese hour. must stay here.
“Delightful hotel in a beautiful neighborhood”
Such a beautiful hotel! The staff is very helpful. John (at the front desk) cheerfully went online, checked us in for our flight home, and printed our boarding passes. They even moved our car for us, so we wouldn't get a ticket. It is street parking, but we had no problem finding a spot (and no parking fee). The complimentary breakfast was excellent. It reminded me of the breakfasts we had in europe. There was a nice evening wine and cheese reception (also complimentary). The staff turned down our bed each night and left delicious chocolate cookies. The hotel toiletries smelled wonderful! (lemon verbena) In general, we had an excellent experience at the Hotel Drisco.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We booked the suite and had a lovely view of the bay and surrounding area. It is located in Pacific Heights and the surrounding area is unique. Be sure to take a walk in the area. Lyon Street matches Lombard in many ways. It is also adjacent to the Presidio, and you can make a morning run through this unique landscape. Staff was pleasant and helpful. We can't wait for a return trip. It is on the expensive side but in my opinion well worth the cost.
“A San Francisco treasure.”
Charming small hotel. Quiet, lovely residential neighborhood. We have stayed here for years--- starting when guests could buy bacon by the slice at breakfast. Not terribly close to downtown, but that is the reason it is so quiet and peaceful. Helpful staff. Our favorite hotel in San Francisco
“Wonderful Hotel Drisco”
I found the Drisco in a Sunset Magazine article. It didn't disappoint. It was perfectly located in a beautiful neighborhood above the city but walking distance from world class dining and shopping. The breakfast was wonderful and the service was the kind of quality I would expect from an elite hotel. Don't miss this quaint, elegant refuge in the city.
“San Francisco at its best”
we were very more than saticefied with this nice and comfortable hotel. a reasable price for a good romm and a perfect service
“We love the Hotel Drisco!”
Gracious hotel in a great neighborhood. Very nice continental breakfast, we really enjoyed the nightly wine reception, and the sitting room is great.
