I love the Hotel Drisco. The staff was very friendly and I was upgraded to a room with a beautiful city view. The room itself was spacious enough and beautifully furnished with classic looking furniture. The bathroom was nice and I really enjoyed the morning breakfast.
As for location, it does not get any better. Some people may love being in the middle of the action, surrounded by thousands of other tourists, but I am not one of them. The Hotel sits on top of the ridge in Pacific Heights. It is an amazing place with beautiful homes. You are definitely away from the hordes of other tourists. Cow Hollow and the Marina District are down the hill with many neat little restaurants. You also have Fillmore to the east. Going up and down the hills can be a challenge, but great exercise. There is a beautiful park right near the hotel and the people were super-friendly. I had spent the last decade living in South Florida, which has the most unhappy people on Earth, so I was pleasantly surprised how friendly the people were in Pacific Heights.
The one drawback would be public transit. Taking the buses can be a tiring experience. I ended up mainly using cabs. I liked to walk down to the Marina and then take a cab back up the hill to the Hotel.
