More Room Types

Visitors can live like locals in Pacific Heights, the “Gold Coast” of San Francisco, when staying at Hotel Drisco. Erected in 1903, the property looks like a high-end apartment building on a row of elegant mansions and treats upscale clientele like family with friendly, discreet service.

Elegant, turn-of-the-century décor in guest rooms is updated with modern technology like flat screen televisions, free Wi-Fi, Nespresso machines and iPod docking stations. Washed in soothing shades of lemon and cream, rooms look out at the courtyard or neighborhood and some offer sweeping views of downtown. Suites have one or two bedrooms and guests are welcomed with fresh fruit platters upon arrival.

Mornings at Hotel Drisco begin with a lavish English breakfast including delicacies like currant scones with lemon curd and clotted cream, local organic yogurt, meats and cheeses. After filling up in the sunny dining room, guests can explore the neighborhood on complimentary bicycles, take the free morning car service to meetings downtown or pick up a pass to the Presidio YMCA from the front desk. In the evenings, the hotel hosts a wine reception paired with cheese, charcuterie and hors d’oeuvres. Those who find themselves with a few free hours can relax in the Sitting Room where coffee and tea are always served with handmade chocolate biscotti.
