This 48-room hotel in the wealthy Pacific Heights neighborhood is a preferred address of regular San Francisco visitors who prefer to stay in a more residential setting. The four-story building, which dates from 1903, has lovely views down steep Broderick Street toward the bay, so top-floor rooms are the ones to book. All are elegantly and comfortably furnished, in cheerful colors, and include such charming original touches as white clapboard wainscoting, painted cast-iron heaters and, in some cases, bay windows. Rooms feel fresh and modern. Hailed by many insiders as the city’s best small hotel, the Drisco has a friendly, plugged-in staff, many of whom have been there for decades. Travelers who loathe being nickel-and-dimed when on the road will appreciate the complimentary breakfast, afternoon wine reception, WiFi and town car shuttle service on weekday mornings to Union Square, the Financial District, and the Presidio, all included in the room rate. Twenty-four hour room service is also available. The Drisco has a small fitness center and loaner bicycles, and offers free passes to the Presidio YMCA.
