5.7 Passable
Pros:Good location. Friendly concierge and staff.
Cons:old, musky facilities. Porcelain in bathroom looks yellowish. Rooms tiny. “Amenities fee” makes no sense. Only “amenity” is a Glass of wine in the afternoon. They should charge for that explicitly instead of through a Flat fee
5.1 Passable
Cons:Old hotel, tiny rooms, very noisy with protestors with very little effort made by staff to make situation better. first room didn't have working heating and had to wait an hour for a new room at 11pm.
5.7 Passable
Pros:Excellent location just one block from Union Square.
Cons:Because we received a low room rate through Kayak we were told “there were no king or queen rooms available and had to accept two double beds or “an historic (tiny) room”. The bathroom in this double room was damaged, tiny & you had to hold the toilet lever down for several seconds in order for it to work. Even though we were on the eighth floor, because the window has not been upgraded the noise level from the street was disturbing. And finally, it is ridiculous that people have to lineup and wait 5 to 15 minuets to get an elevator in the lobby. There are 4 elevators for a few hundred rooms which inadequately services the guests. Not recommended for a comfortable visit.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:The Sir Francis Drake is adjacent to Union Square, Chinatown + the cable car line. You can walk to almost anything you need, and you don't need to go far. The staff is always helpful, even to late arrivals wanting a different room. The housekeepers respect "do not disturb" signs -- important when paperwork is left everywhere -- but are quick to make up a room when you're ready. AND it's across the street from Sears Fine Food, another SF tradition.
Cons:When it's busy, the elevators take a minute to get to you. Be prepared to wait. The bar backs up, too, and that can mean getting a drink when it's crowded is an ordeal -- especially since the lobby cab get loud. But the people are nice, so in terms of this negative, it's really just a fact that's not terrible.
6.0 Okay
Pros:Wine hour
Cons:Small rooms Few amenities
5.7 Passable
Pros:Good location for areas of interest
Cons:The room was super tiny. Staff was nice but it sure if I would rebook.
9.7 Excellent
Pros:Just a few maintenance items marred what was otherwise a perfect score for this lovely boutique hotel. Great location and fabulous staff made for a fantastic stay,
Cons:Blocked drains and a dicky light switch were a slight issue but were attended to promptly.
7.7 Good
Pros:It was nice staying here again, it was comfortable and the price is the best for the location.
Cons:Theyou need more towels in the room and more soap. When we got in there was not any soap to washave your hands and no bath soap.
8.5 Great
Pros:The Drake has a great location, it's clean and comfy with some traces of old excellence. The Concierge was very helpful with directions and suggestions for meals.
Cons:Tiny bathroom but then, who comes to San Francisco to hang out in the bathroom?
8.2 Great
Pros:I lived the location and ambiance of the hotel.
Cons:Rooms could be upgraded a little bit and thought it was a little pricey.
