We stayed two very pleasant nights at the Hotel Drisco this spring and it did not disappoint. Its location in the historic, upscale residential area of Pacific Heights is unique and special, away from the hub-bub, which is not to everyone's taste. Indeed, a car is a necessity to fully explore what the city has to offer. A five minute walk in a flat topography is at least triple that in hilly S.F. But for a quiet, relaxing environment in a very well run hotel, this place is hard to beat. Among the highlights; the evening wine tastings, the morning breakfast, helpful staff and the charm of an old hotel that has remained independent from a large chain.
We were in a smaller room that apparently accounts for the fact there was only one chair and limited space. Larger accommodations in the hotel would have been better for us. Maybe next time. I felt the accommodations, while clean, were a little dated, particularly the bathroom.
The view from our room was only so-so.
All in all, it was a very nice stay and quite enjoyable.
