San Francisco’s Hotel Drisco has been voted one of America’s Top 10 boutique hotels by Sunset Magazine. While we love a good recommendation at SFTravel – we’ve been featuring Hotel Drisco (formerly the "El Drisco") since the 1990’s.
It’s a hotel in the Pacific Heights neighborhood where the locals love to live. The hotel comes in an unexpected area – near beautiful mansions; trendy apartments; and sweeping views. Pacific Heights has been glamorized for centuries – but a hotel in the area is a true rarity.
Sunset emphasizes our comments on the excellent neighborhood – with boutique shopping nearby. The hotel is also near the hiking trails of the beautiful bay-front Presidio National Park (home of George Lucas animation and CGI studios!).
Our readers are a bit more specific – raving about the beautiful rooms; cool location; and abundance of seeming San Francisco "locals" staying overnight in the City.
The Hotel Drisco isn’t your normal San Francisco hotel – you need to be ready to enjoy the life of a true local in the City.
