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.

Nice hotel but lacking amenities
The room was great but lacked the microwave and fridge. Also was very noisy in the middle of night. Nice location though
Ryan, us1 night family trip
Poor 2.0
Very small rooms and bathrooms. Not worth the price for the stay or the location.

Fair 4.0
Smoking smell room
The hotel was beutiful and the bellman was courtious and took care of things. But there was a missunderstanding about the luggage and we had to call to get it delivered. The most important thing was that the room smelled like it was a smoking room. They said none were smoking rooms but maybe the furniture, courtains or carpet retained the smell when it was but it was very strong that give us red eyes the next day. Also watch out for the "Guest Amenity Fee" of $29 and parking of $70. Breakfast was overpriced.
