    Luxury hotel amenities. Bed and breakfast quality service. Great value for a city with very expensive hotels that offer less on both counts. I expected quite a bit because of the reviews i'd read. Those expectations were well met. Expectations surpassed were the breakfast spread, the coziest robe I've ever worn, and the availability of free computer use at the business center for printing airline tickets. I will always book Hotel Drisco when in San Francisco.

    The hotel is amazing. The room my wife and I stayed in was quiet, with a big bathroom and a comfortable bed. Breakfast was also very good, with good variety and tasty food. At the evenings there's also a complimentary wine reception with local wines and cheese plates. Staff was great.

    Location is not great if you're there for sightseeing and you don't have a car. The hotel is at the top of a (very steep) hill, so walking can be challenging. Taxis are also scarce --had to wait up to 1 hour for those that the front desk called. The hotel offer a complimentary car service that takes you downtown, but it's one-way only and it only runs until 9:30am.

    The courtesy of the porter, Thanh---the elegant comfort of the room--- the excellent breakfast and the company/cheerfulness of the European woman who supervised the breakfast room.

    Comfort & service : a very well-run establishment !

    Location not ideal but very safe and elegant .

    In particular, Jon at the front desk was as professional, efficient, and pleasant as could be. Other front desk staff also were very good. Of the bell/valet staff, Thanh (sp?) was very accomodating and pleasant. The continental breakfast was good, and again, the staff unfailingly pleasant. The evening wine tasting was mostly well done, but a "certified pre-chewed" olive pit appeared among the mixed nuts, which put me off the rest of the food offered.

    The housekeeping staff were no less pleasant, but woefully unprofessional. The vacuum cleaner was always left in the small hall that turned off from the main hall, leading to our room, right in front of the cleaning supplies closet. The staff hounded us to be able to get into our room when we were not yet ready to leave for the day. One afternoon, one of the staff entered the room without knocking to offer cookies and/or ice. The ice was proffered in midair -- in a scoop in one hand -- and the cookies (still wrapped,thankfully) in the other hand, not on a plate or napkin. Lastly, the person who cleaned left hairs in our sink, on the bathroom floor, and on the duvet. There were traces of a previous guest's tooth paste at the sink, and there was urine on the toilet seat. (Fortunately, I am always equipped with anti- bacterial wipes.) I am sorry to say that, while the room was neat, it was far from clean.

    I don't like the new coffee. Equator Estates was fresher and more flavorable when they made it strong enough.
