After reading the great reviews on Trip Advisor, we booked two nights at Hotel Drisco. We were not disappointed. The Hotel is lovely, in a great neighborhood. Breakfast was great, a lovely variety of pastries, delicious granolas, fresh fruit, etc. Tea 7 coffee 24/7.
The wine & cheese each evening was very nice, good wine, olives, cheeses, pleasant staff!
The room was nicely done, and very comfortable, quiet.
Would love to return!

Love Period Buildings, Pacific Heights Mansions, and top of the world views? Want to have excellent, comfortable, friendly service that will make you feel as well cared for as Lord & Lady Grantham of Downton Abbey? Then Hotel Drisco is an excellent choice! Both the building and the staff are wonderful and give you that stepping-back-in-time-to-a-better-time feeling. From the moment you arrive you will be impressed with how friendly, pleasant, and helpful the whole staff is (true career professionals- no disgruntled staff here!) The neighborhood is wonderful - it's worth staying here just so you can step out for a stroll around the very peaceful neighborhood and take in views from all directions, all the while admiring the many beautiful mansions and how fabulous it would be to live in any one of them! The room is perfect: solid and comfortable, and very appealing in the traditional white trim wood kind of way, but with all the modern conveniences you'll want, like large flat screen TV. The bed and bedding are really wonderful too. Love staying in an ultra-modern space with lots of metallic decor and floor to ceiling glass windows? Then go somewhere else, because at the Drisco you get the real, traditional, white wood framed, "hoist it open by hand" windows, which all add to the back in time feeling I love so much. (If you are the type of person that likes modern Vegas hotels and demand everything to be sleek and slick, then you aren't going to understand the true beauty of the Drisco, and fellow Drisco lovers certainly won't understand you either :) The icing on the cake is the complimentary wine reception at 5pm (the Merlot served was a really great choice to compliment the gourmet assortment of cheeses and hors duerves which were so tasty, it was almost a dinner, and some of the best food I had all trip), as well as the wonderful breakfast downstairs, again with really nice fruit, breads, cream cheese, and to-die-for Salmon Lox, etc, in such a pleasant little room with many tables, and more great staff, all which add perfectly to the Pacific Heights feeling of your stay. One other thing I really appreciate, is that, although it’s not the cheapest place to stay, once you’ve paid for the room, you’ll find that they’ve included so many other wonderful things which are either free (such as the Wine Reception, and Breakfast) or very reasonable, such as the $10 panini’s and sandwiches which can be delivered to your room (in contrast to so many other hotels which seem to gouge you at every turn once they’ve got you captive ) Can you tell I give the Drisco a major thumbs up? :) To be fair, the only things to watch out for are: Know what you are looking for - if you want location near all the cheap touristy attractions, or if you insist on a new & modern kind of thing, then this is not the place for you. This place is for people who want to experience a prestigious bit of old SF, in a prestigious old SF neighborhood. Also, since it is an older building, I suppose you may hear a bit of room to room noise occasionally (although we did not) however the Drisco even provides each room a really nice sound & clock radio which allows you to drift off to ocean waves or many other nice sounds - just another example of how well they will take care of your every need to give you the perfect Pacific Heights experience at the Hotel Drisco!

Room Tip: Our room with an expansive City View was nice to have, but the neighborhood is so nice in general, that I'm thinking the view would be nice even if your room only looks out at the building accross the street :)

Dear Guest,

What can I say other than I could have written this review myself! You have managed to capture everything that we're about here at the Drisco while at the same time recognizing that there is a certain type of person that will especially appreciate everything we have to offer. If it's a sleek, ultramodern sensory-deprivation chamber you seek, you would do well to look elsewhere. For luxurious charm and fantastically friendly service, look no further than the Hotel Drisco!

Thank you for your lovely review!

We stayed a night at the Hotel Drisco for our anniversary, and it was lovely. The check-in service was friendly and helpful, offering a map of the area. They had sparkling cider chilled and waiting in the room for our special event, along with a selection of chocolates from a local chocolatier and some nice bath salts in the bathroom. And the room itself (Suite 106) was also quite lovely, offering nice views of the city. We ordered panini from room service at one point, and those were good too. The room also had a refrigerator stocked with a selection of drinks as well as snacks on hand.

It's a nice neighborhood to walk through and look at the architecture and gardens, and the hotel was within walking distance to Fillmore Street, which has some great little restaurants and an eclectic variety of shops. Not sure how easy it is to park at El Drisco, however; we didn't drive ourselves, but did overhear other guests complaining about finding a spot.

Dear Guest,

I am very pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us, and thank you for the great review!

You mentioned parking towards the end of your review, and I would like to give everyone a little more information here about just how convenient it is to park your car with us.

First and foremost, the Drisco does not operate a parking lot or structure of any kind and, as such, we do not have a parking charge. Because of our location at the top of a hill in a very exclusive residential neighborhood, street parking is usually plentiful, close and convenient (and free -- no meters). However, there are certain times, especially during popular citywide events, when parking near the Drisco can be a challenge. Fortunately those times are few and far between. We take pride in offering our guests a free and convenient parking option on the residential streets surrounding the hotel, however much as we would like to be able to, we simply cannot guarantee that close, convenient parking will always be available.

If you will be bringing a car to the Drisco, you should also be aware that there are parking time limits as well as street-cleaning restrictions. Fortunately, if you choose to, you may leave your car keys in the capable hands of our Bell Staff and they will move your car for you whenever necessary. There is of course no charge for this service.

Lastly, if you are not accustomed to driving and parking in a large urban area, please be aware that it is highly advisable not to leave any personal belongings in view in your vehicle. Even though we are located in a stunningly beautiful and safe neighborhood, our view is that you can never be too cautious in this regard.

Sincerely,

John Spear
General Manager

P.S. As an alternative (although one I do not recommend), you can choose to pay $57/night to park at the St. Regis Hotel, $58.14/night to park at the Four Seasons Hotel or $70.68/night to park at the Ritz Carlton Hotel. It's up to you!

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights as part of our honeymoon and loved the hotel. We were upgraded to a suite and found a bottle of champagne and hand written card in our room, as well as rose petals on our bed, a fantastic way to make guests feel special. The room was immaculate and staff helpful and friendly.
The breakfast was great with a good selection and we really enjoyed the cheese and wine every evening as well as the delicious cookies.
The hotel has beautiful rooms overlooking the city and is walking distance (albeit up the steep SF hills(!) to great restaurants) but staff are more than happy to organise taxis for trips into town.
All round fantastic stay.
