I was in charge of planning our company's incentive trip to San Francisco last week. After negotiating with several hotels in the area, I finally decided on the Sir Francis Drake. Boy, am I glad I did! I initially worked with Stephanie Hiatt to establish our hotel rates and banquet needs. Since I had a million other questions about things to do in the area, a wine tour to plan, transportation needs for my group, etc., she introduced me to Leif Abram, Concierge. Leif was the best thing that happened to us! He arranged the Napa Valley Wine Tour, transportation to and from the airport several times, helped the staff with salon reservations, got us into restaurants no one else could get us into, made sure our CEO had Coors Light in his limo and room. Needless to say, Leif made us feel at home. Leif is a first class representation for the Sir Francis Drake. We have worked with hotels all over and have never been treated as well. Our service by several others were also outstanding. Stephanie, Lillian Leong, Faith, Courtney, Jose and Jose in Banquets. Our rooms for those arriving on Wednesday were not set up as a group check in, although the front desk had a room list. About 15 minutes before the bus arrival I went to the front desk to let them know the group was about to be there soon. Nelson jumped into action and quickly assigned rooms, made keys and expedited the check in. He was superior! The hotel was beautiful and charming with amazing character and was a perfect location for our group. Our stay at the Sir Francis Drake could not have been better! Thank you again to Leif and the rest of your staff.
