Best Dog-Friendly Hotel
The Sir Francis Drake is the best hotel in SF for its dog-friendly accommodations and beautiful rooms. This is my go-to place for every visit.

Great location
Location was great but this is unlike the other Kimptons that I’ve stayed at. The room decor is dated and could use a refresh.

Gateway to Union Square
The Sir Francis Drake Hotel is my go-to place in SF. The hotel rooms have been modernized while keeping the charm of the old hotel that was built in 1928. The hotel bar and restaurant Scala are delightful places to hang out. Once you walk out you can either take the Trolly or walk to many destinations in the immediate area of Union Square.

Perfect Anniversary Getaway
One of the best hotel experiences I've had. Staff was extremely friendly and willing to help. We celebrated our 10 year anniversary here and as a congratulatory gift they upgraded our room. It was a wonderful gesture w/ spectacular views of the City. There is Cable Car stop right outside the hotel which serves as transportation to Ghirardelli Square or Fisherman's Warf. Plenty of places to eat that are a short walk away. Tons of shopping right outside at Union Square. Over Great Location, amazing staff, beautiful rooms.
