For a one night get away from a one year old baby and getting in to San Francisco to celebrate a wedding, we decided to splurge a little on a luxurious hotel, and the Drisco was absolutely worth it. I was so impressed when calling for an early check in, to be treated with courtesy, none of the typical runaround...

My husband and I recently chose this hotel for our first visit to San Francisco. Prior to arriving, we had contacted the concierge (Bob) to inquire about dinner suggestions and activities while there. He was extremely helpful and catered his suggestions to our needs. As we only had a couple of days, we wanted to make sure that we made...

Beautiful hotel & neighborhood. Great staff, from front desk to bellmen to cleaning. Excellent breakfast. Spotless. But if you are a family of 4, with 2 teens that want their own rooms, the 2 bedroom suite is what makes this place unbeatable. We've tried all sorts of suites, used roll-aways, had to get 2 rooms. This suite was the best....

My husband and I stayed 2 nights at Hotel Drisco during our honeymoon to Northern California. We were excited about the hotel just from what we saw online and in other guests' reviews. San Francisco has lots of great hotels, but for our honeymoon we wanted something quintessentially San Francisco beyond the cookie cutter chain hotels and the cold, modern...

This hotel in San Francisco is a definiate 5 star. When we arrived we were met by staff that could not do enough to make us comfortable. They were very helpful and even willing to sit with us and explain all the best things to do in the city. We were given a personal tour of the Hotel the minute...

This was my second stay at Hotel Drisco--same wonderful service, same clean, beautiful hotel. Staff are warm and friendly without being intrusive. I can't think of staying anywhere else when visiting San Francisco. I travel quite a bit and Hotel Drisco is at the top of my list.

I'm trying something new and use bullet points: - Awesome, professional, nice staff - Great rooms (except for lower level rooms - AVOID) - Great breakfast with varying foods (both savory and sweet, carbohydrates and protein) Oh, espresso, cappucino or latte upon request! - Great location (unless you like to be in the thick of things) this is in the...

It was pure relaxation in a quiet and peaceful setting. The staff was always there to please and provide whatever you needed. Made for a great start to a California mini-vacation. Rooms were comfortable and excellent service in all areas.

From the moment of arrival we were treated to the courtesy and care that one simply doesn't experience today. As a senior couple we remember how once one was considered a valuable guest and treated as such. The front desk staff are professional and gracious. The bellman is so very knowledgeable and helpful. The suite met every expectation of a...

I loved loved loved this hotel. It was the perfect place to stay in San Francisco - surprisingly good value, a view of Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge from the windows, and just walking around the neighbourhood was a delight (all those impossibly beautiful houses). It was only a 10 min walk downhill at night to get to restaurants,...
