My wife and I stayed at the Sir Francis Drake in San Francisco February 12 - 15th for a Valentine's Day getaway. Didn't know much about the Hotel, aside from what we had seen online. We were wonderfully surprised at just how accommodating and pleasant the staff was. They helped us with directions to get around town, referred us to fantastic restaurants and genuinely made us feel special. We even got a private historical tour of the Hotel.....Wow...what a story the hotel has....We want to acknowledge some specific members of the staff, as they were most involved with our stay and again, made sure our experience was wonderful. Vilen Gabrielyan..."Thank you so much for the tour and for taking such good care of my wife and I, you were absolutely the best....Micheal, at the front desk, for ensuring that we didn't miss the wine tasting."
- As for the management, and others who make the big decisions,...The hotel is absolutely fantastic, can't imagine staying at a different hotel. But, it is people like Vilen and Micheal that truly sold the experience for us at the hotel. The Sir Francis Drake will be in our hearts for a long time to come, and we will definitely be returning soon.
Thanks again, and take care of the "Drake".....She's a special place.
