My husband and I have stayed at this hotel for years, since it was called the El Drisco Hotel and before that I stayed with my daughter. It has a lovely ambience with a friendly and helpful staff. The rooms can be small but if you ask for one of the back rooms on the top floor , you get a lovely room with a view. They serve wine and cheese in the afternoon and a hearty breakfast , both of which are included . We would highly recommend this hotel. It is located in Pacific Heights, away from the hustle of downtown San Francisco, but close enough to get to everything.

Room Tip: Suites facing the side street are bright , roomy and quiet. Back rooms on the top floor have a lovely view. Especially the one in the middle.

Perfect on all counts: clean, comfortable, friendly service from management, bellhops, front desk, servers and housekeeping. The residential location was great for us while we visited our daughter in the Cow Hollow section) away from the bustling downtown area. Lovely, substantial continental breakfast (included) add to the value. Will return for sure!

This Hotel is one of the nicest hotel's I have ever stayed in. It is understated and elegant, with wonderful service. It is boutique in the true sense of the word. This is not a hotel for people who want spas and extensive room service, but it is a great hotel for those who like a comfortable, quite beautiful place to relax in while staying in SF. My husband and my six year old son went up to stay a couple of days before thanksgiving to show our son the sights and sounds of this lovely city and we couldn't have had a better time. The Hotel is situated on tippy top of Pacific Heights, one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in SF.We arrived at night quite late tired from our travels, to be told that we had been up graded to a corner suite! Our room on the 4th floor was simply elegant, I think originally this hotel used to be a boarding house back in the day so the rooms are quite substantial. When we woke up in the morning we were greeted by the most beautiful views of San Francisco. The decor of the rooms and hotel is gorgeous, simple and understated and in keeping with the turn of the century architecture. I think a lot of hotels when they say free continental breakfast will have cereal and a few croissants maybe, The continental breakfast at Hotel Drisco, which is served in a beautiful breakfast room, is what a real continental breakfast should be. Beautiful fresh pastries, fresh fruit, porridge, cheeses, bagels, yoghurts. I was delicious! They also have wine tasting in the evening in the sitting room, but we never managed to get to it. From the hotel you can walk to a lot of the best places in SF; the first day we walked down one side of the hill to the Academy of Science (well worth a visit) in Golden Gate Park, and stopped at a great playground on the way called Rossi playground ( on Arguello blvd and Anza street), after the science academy went across and had a cup of tea at the Japanese Tea Garden ( lovely!). The second day we went down the other side of the hill to the Palais of Fine Arts. Both walks were through some of the prettiest streets in SF, the architecture in this neighborhood is beautiful, and it is very enjoyable just to meander down these streets catching views of the Golden Gate Bridge as you make your way down. You can also walk to a lot of great restaurants (might want to get a taxi back though as it is up hill all the way!). But yes, you can’t go wrong at the lovely Hotel Drisco!

Room Tip: 4th floor with a view if you can it's worth it!

Dear Guest,

Thanks so much for your kind comments. I'm sure it will come as no surprise to you to learn that I agree Hotel Drisco is one of San Francisco's best kept secrets! However, with all of the great reviews here on TripAdvisor, we are becoming less of a secret, making it that much more important to secure your reservation with us well in advance. I hope we have the opportunity to welcome you back soon.

Kind Regards,

John Spear
General Manager

We selected this hotel after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor and am so glad we did.
What a perfect place to relax after being out and about all day.
Everything about this hotel was perfect.
If you want a quiet,safe, comfortable hotel with great service and polite,efficient staff, this is the place.
The complementary breakfast and afternoon wine and finger food just added to the great value Hotel Drisco provides.
