Fantastic, well priced and located historic hotel
Fantastic location, beautiful historic hotel, helpful friendly staff, really comfortable beds. Complimentary coffee on the morning, wine in the evening. Lovely way to start our trip to California.

Good 6.0
Very disappointed with the staff.
Had a good stay at the hotel. Unfortunately I left my wallet at the hotel, which was handed in to the hotel staff. Who contacted me to which was amazing news and said they would send it back to me. Now they are ignoring my emails with the tracking number and won’t respond to any contact to help me get my wallet back. It’s a shame the director of housekeeping is ignoring these emails.

Location is perfect
Very smart hotel with lovely old features. The room was very small and had the smallest bathroom possible. Room view was of the Marriott next door. Chipped paint in the bathroom. Cable cars stop outside, but so often full.

Starlight was great. Lobby Not so much
Amazing location and history. the very small restrooms were cramp. the showerhead was the loudest noisiest I have ever heard. The Lobby bar closes at the discretion of the bartender and that makes no sense

Amazing hotel—you won't be disappointed!
This location was SO GOOD. As was the service. We also loved our room. When I booked this hotel, I was torn between this one and another, and I'm SO glad I chose Sir Francis Drake! We were able to walk every that was important to us (Curran Theater, Japantown, Fisherman's Wharf, Ferry Market, etc.), plus it was SUPER convenient to the Powell St. station. Our main reason for this trip was for the Harry Potter plays, and this was super close to the Curran Theater. The trip was for my husband's birthday, and the staff sent up a bottle of prosecco, two bottles of sparkling water, and a DELICIOUS, golden devil's food cupcake—on the house! Honestly, this hotel exceeded my expectations. The negatives I saw others leave before were non-existent or only minor inconveniences. Yes, there's an amenity fee and we, like many others, did not use the amenities. But this fee was clearly marked on hotels.com since the beginning, so we were expecting it and factored it into the overall cost. Yes, the toilet is oddly close to one wall. We are both larger people and it wasn't an actual problem. Yes, San Francisco is a loud city, and you can occasionally hear street noise—that's just how cities like this are in my experience. The hotel was lovely, the staff was even lovelier, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to someone. SUCH a great pick for our Harry Potter and the Cursed Child weekend and my favorite trip to San Fran ever, in large part due to this hotel.
