Great room, great bed, great breakfast. Within easy walking distance to Pier 39 and all that's going on there. Easy walk to tour bus stop as well as trolley. The only complaint was there is no on-site dinner available.

Although we were only there for one night, I totally loved this hotel. The views are beautiful, even from the bathroom! They have a wonderful wine tasting cocktail hour and a incredible breakfast. I can't wait to go back!

Just spent a weekend with family in celebration of my daughter's wedding. This was one of the best hotel experiences I've ever had. It is a beautiful and elegant hotel that does not shout its luxury. It feels very San Francisco and every element is focused on low-key comfort. It is not inexpensive, but worth every penny. So many complimentary... More

We stayed here this weekend for a family wedding nearby at Presidio. I can't say enough about this place as this is the real flavor of San Francisco. Elegant, inviting, amazing service, and fabulous spread for breakfast and happy hour which is included. The staff was there every minute we had any requests and they couldn't have been more accommodating.... More

What a wonderful find right in our backyard! My friend and I decided to stay in the city the night before a race and made arrangements to stay at Hotel Drisco. We have both lived in the area for 20 years and had no idea this was there. From the moment we walked in, everything was perfect. The staff, the... More

Where to begin. Atop one of San Francisco's famous hills in Pacific Heights, blocks from the Presidio, a view of the Golden Gate Bridge snd Alcatraz(sort of), wonderful and attentive staff, charming hotel. We were celebrating my birthday in the City. All the staff were friendly, conversational and helpful--concierge available . I was concerned about parking the rental car but... More

The details make all the difference. They think of everything you could possibly want or need. Robe, slippers, newspaper, fruit. Breakfast is amazing and available until 10am. Bvulgari toiletries. Splurge on the suite, it is worth it (though you may never want to leave). You will feel pampered from all of the attention. Views are lovely. If you're a runner,... More

Absolutely charming hotel, with wonderful vistas of the city. Great free breakfast, and the added bonus of a free cocktail hour reception nightly. My husband and I were celebrating our 25th Wedding Anniversary with a trip to San Francisco and this was the perfect, romantic hotel. Had a city view suite, which was delightful. Can't imagine staying anywhere else now.

This is the second time we stayed at the hotel, and it was just as fabulous as the first time. The location, in Pacific Heights, couldn't be better. Beautiful views of the bay, and easy walk to Fillmore St for shopping and restaurants. The hotel employees all make you feel welcome and remember you from day to day. The room... More

From the minute you arrive you feel welcome. Our Aussie flag was flying alongside the US flag! The staff were friendly and available. The breakfast was lovely and the evening receptions were the perfect way to end the day.
