  • “One of the highlights of our trips to San Francisco”
    One of our delights of our trips to San Francisco to visit family is our stays at the Hotel Drisco. The hotel has an old world ambiance located in a quiet, upscale area of San Francisco. Our rooms have always been spacious, quiet and clean. The staff is outstanding and caring catering to our every need. One of the great pleasures of this hotel is an outstanding buffet breakfast and an evening wine and cheese offering all included in the room price.

  • "Wonderful little gem!”
    Service was wonderful and breakfast was a nice touch. It was a convenient location for us since we have friends that live in the area. If you are looking for peace and quiet with amazing views this is definitely the place to be. The rooms were immaculately clean and the amenities in the room were nice. Would definitely stay here again!

Customer service is top notch.Very accommodating and friendly! I'd recommend checking out the happy hour as well, excellent! This is the only choice while visiting San Francisco! You won't be disappointed.

  • "Fantastic Hotel in Prime Location!"
    We stayed here for a few nights over Thanksgiving, and it was the best hotel experience we've ever had in SF. Luxurious and family friendly at the same time. Charming rooms, stylish decor, incredibly accommodating staff, delicious free breakfast, fun wine hour, and perfect location in Pac Heights.

  • "Memorable Anniversary Stay"
    I really don't leave many reviews anywhere but this is the second one (Yelp) in regards to the awesome Hotel Drisco. There is a reason they are rated so high. The service is nothing short of outstanding. From the GM John, who is as warm and genuine as the hotel itself. He even helped us to our room. That in itself really impressed us. The staff he employs in particular Shay was so friendly and welcoming especially each night for the complimentary wine and cheese event. We found ourselves looking forward to talking and enjoying the Hotel Drisco vibe. The rooms were remodeled and are exquisite and pristine. The Hotel Drisco will be our go to place in the City. Much gratitude and appreciation for making our anniversary extremely memorable. Best, Glen Lenhart
