Location is good but hotel is not worthy. Old buildings with terrible elevators system. There is no restaurant on site. Small bathrooms Nothing really to highlight at the hotel Go for another brand if you want the location, there is a Marriott and Hyatt in same block

If old world British is your cup of tea, this might be a good choice. Located near union square it's well situated. Public areas are worthy of sightseeing, so if staying here take a tour of them all. There is much to be appreciated in this grand old dame if they can keep up with it. Rooms are smallish especially bathrooms. Internet is extra, such a shame especially in this city elbowing up to Silicon Valley where tech is king. Charging for internet Just seems excessive (if not a bit greedy). ... Read more

Central location was good, but noise from outside is non stop. Homelessness would appear to be the main contributing factor, the expletives were unrelenting and disturbed sleep was the consequence for us. Fortunately we were moving to a different room after the first night, one which looked out onto the back of the hotel and it was bliss. Homelessness is very visible, all four corners of the crossroads seemed to be occupied from early evening. As 2 females it felt intimidating and resulted in u... Read more

My wife and I spent 5 nights at the hotel. We were there for her year end company conference. Our room was on the 18th floor and gave us some nice views of the city. The room was great and the staff was wonderful. Since the company paid for the room I can't give an opinion on the room cost, but whatever it was, it was worth it. Now I must warn you, if you park a car while staying at the hotel prepare yourself for "sticker shock". Overall, it was a nice stay at the Drake.

First time we stayed here we were saddened by the very thin walls in the normal hotel rooms. This time we stayed we decided to upgrade to a jr suite. What a difference. The neighbor noise was the only complaint we had last time(very noisy neighbors) and this time we have no complaint. The only thing I would advise is that if your a light sleeper(the wife) look into a jr suite. It wasn't that much more and it made a huge difference to us. Thanks Sir Francis Drake see ya next time!??????

We stayed at the SFD a couple of days ago. It was great! I received a Kimpton email offer with a really good price and I booked it! This hotel is really unique. The Beefeater doormen are an awesome touch! The hotel lobby is beautiful. It is definitely "Old World" SF. There is a beautiful bar in the lobby with interesting furniture and seating areas. The check in was easy. Even though the the registrars were busy, I never felt rushed when it was my turn to check in. The registrar was pol... Read more

Stayed at Sir Francis Drake -Kimpton and it was a perfect vacation. The location is fantastic and there are many restaurants and shops that are easily walkable. The hotel is even close enough to walk to Fisherman's Wharf. It's a bit of a hike but the walk through Chinatown was really fun and there were some terrific photo ops. Take Uber back tot the hotel. It's cheap and the hills are big. Check-in was a breeze. The staff was polite and helpful and the doormen in beefeater costumes were so ... Read more

Stayed here for 3 nights and loved it!! The staff were super polite and helpful. The location very ideal for shopping, eating and Union Square was less then a block away. There is a Starbucks really close to the hotel and a pharmacy was across the street. There was also a liquor, beer and wine store close by. The Macy's store is 6 floors and gorgeous. The hotel has a beautiful lobby. Stay away from the store next door Orogold!!!

The hotel is beautiful and great location. The desk agent who checked us in did not explain any of the amenities as he was extremely frustrated that his hotel computer did not have a credit card swiper to run my credit card. ¯\_(??)_/¯ The room was thoughtfully laid out, bathroom amenities terrific and had an amazing view from the 15th floor. The rooftop restaurant was....interesting. On a Thursday night, be prepared to mingle with middle aged woman who drunkenly watch themselves dance in... Read more

We stayed at the Kimpton Sir Francis Drake Hotel for two nights over a weekend (Saturday and Sunday nights) to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday and have a bit of a mixed reaction to our stay. We arrived around midday and the room was apparently not ready and wouldn't be until 15:00 (normal check-in time) but we were assured that our room on the 16th floor had been set aside especially for us. Fair enough, we understand that the check-in time is 15:00 and it is not always possible to access t... Read more
