Makeover of San Francisco’s Most Prestigious and Charming Neighborhood Hotel

Hotel Drisco, the quintessential Pacific Heights neighborhood hideaway and a San Francisco historic resource, is pleased to announce the completion of a comprehensive renovation.  After a six-month long closure, the 1903 Edwardian boutique hotel’s top-to-bottom refresh includes the renovation of all 48 guestrooms and bathrooms, including 16 suites, as well as updates to all the public areas and landscaping.

“The Hotel Drisco is an iconic property that combines traditional elegance with contemporary residential-style comfort.  Our loyal guests consider the hotel their ‘home away from home’ because we provide an unparalleled level of gracious and authentic service.  The beautiful building and our charming neighborhood location seal the deal,” said John Spear, the Hotel Drisco’s General Manager. “Our top priority with this renovation was to retain the local character and refined but relaxed ambiance our guests have always loved us for, while weaving in many thoughtful refinements.”

The refreshed guestrooms and suites, many with sweeping views of San Francisco, are tastefully appointed with new custom-designed furniture and vanities, carpeting, window treatments, light fixtures and sound insulation upgrades.  Nearly all guestrooms have increased square footage and feature neutral tones with hues of cream, taupe and slate with striking pops of gold.  Guest bathrooms feature radiant floor heating, marble details, lighted fog-free vanity mirrors and walk-in showers. Additional enhancements include a beautifully appointed new high-speed elevator, renovated Dining Room and Boardroom, new hallway art and lighting, and updated carpeting in public areas.

With a focus on providing a compelling value in a luxury environment, the Hotel Drisco offers many complimentary amenities including a gourmet continental breakfast, an evening wine reception with local artisan cheese and charcuterie, 24-hour coffee and tea service, chauffeur service on weekday mornings, HD-streaming quality WiFi, neighborhood parking and bikes to borrow for cruising town like a local.  Eco-friendly touches include custom glass reusable water bottles, a new state-of-the-art radiant hydronic heating and cooling system, and new double-pane windows providing sound and thermal insulation.  Additionally, 24-hour room service is available for guests who wish to stay in to relax and enjoy the comforts of their guest room.  “There are no hidden fees or extra charges, which is a rarity among luxury hotels,” said Spear.

The Hotel Drisco is a locally owned independent hotel that is dedicated to providing an authentic and memorable experience that celebrates the charm and beauty of the great city of San Francisco.  “Our guests have come to expect the personal attention that our passionate hosts excel at providing.  Our employees are longtime residents of San Francisco who love to share their city.”
