We stayed Saturday and Sunday nights in early December. The prior reviews DO accurately describe the experience. Friendly and fast. The breakfast and evening happy hour are over the top..... it is not at all what you would expect. We stayed here as we had family living around the corner and they were so impressed. They have embarked on renovations...

The hotel is beautiful, the complimentary breakfast is delicious, and the staff is superior! The entire staff is attentive and friendly, and the best of any hotel that I have visited! We loved the wine tasting and horsdouevres in the afternoon. Our room had a sleep sound machine which produced various white noises, I loved it. The lotions are rich...

Thank you to the entire staff, we made a last minute booking for a Saturday night and got the last room in the hotel. Marti and Lauro made us feel welcome immediately. They were kind enough to comp us a half-bottle of champagne (it was our anniversary). We've stayed at the Drisco several times and love the combination of the...

Great room, great bed, great breakfast. Within easy walking distance to Pier 39 and all that's going on there. Easy walk to tour bus stop as well as trolley. The only complaint was there is no on-site dinner available.

Although we were only there for one night, I totally loved this hotel. The views are beautiful, even from the bathroom! They have a wonderful wine tasting cocktail hour and a incredible breakfast. I can't wait to go back!

Just spent a weekend with family in celebration of my daughter's wedding. This was one of the best hotel experiences I've ever had. It is a beautiful and elegant hotel that does not shout its luxury. It feels very San Francisco and every element is focused on low-key comfort. It is not inexpensive, but worth every penny. So many complimentary...

We stayed here this weekend for a family wedding nearby at Presidio. I can't say enough about this place as this is the real flavor of San Francisco. Elegant, inviting, amazing service, and fabulous spread for breakfast and happy hour which is included. The staff was there every minute we had any requests and they couldn't have been more accommodating....

What a wonderful find right in our backyard! My friend and I decided to stay in the city the night before a race and made arrangements to stay at Hotel Drisco. We have both lived in the area for 20 years and had no idea this was there. From the moment we walked in, everything was perfect. The staff, the...

Where to begin. Atop one of San Francisco's famous hills in Pacific Heights, blocks from the Presidio, a view of the Golden Gate Bridge snd Alcatraz(sort of), wonderful and attentive staff, charming hotel. We were celebrating my birthday in the City. All the staff were friendly, conversational and helpful--concierge available . I was concerned about parking the rental car but...

The details make all the difference. They think of everything you could possibly want or need. Robe, slippers, newspaper, fruit. Breakfast is amazing and available until 10am. Bvulgari toiletries. Splurge on the suite, it is worth it (though you may never want to leave). You will feel pampered from all of the attention. Views are lovely. If you're a runner,...
