Sir Francis Drake, San Francisco

Sir Francis Drake, San Francisco

Traditional Hotel


Short description

A renovated 1920s building, the Sir Francis Drake offers understated luxury close to San Francisco’s centre.


Recommended for:
City | Relaxation


Commanding a coveted location in Union Square, the prestigious Sir Francis Drake sits on one side of the famous crossroads, the ultimate location in San Francisco. Nearby, world-class shopping, dining and popular sights include the Powell Street Cable Cars, the AT&T Park and financial district, in addition to theatres, galleries and the opera.


Mirroring the hotel’s interiors, splendour and warmth continue to the rooms and suites at the Sir Francis Drake. Guestrooms feature free yoga mats, complimentary tea and coffee services, plush fabrics and Victorian-style furnishings and the choice of queen and king beds. Deluxe rooms offer city and bay views whilst Grand Guestrooms are spacious with additional seating areas and views of Union Square. Upgrade to a suite for king-sized beds, separate living rooms with a sleeper sofa and breath-taking views.


Entering its second decade, Scala’s Bistro has long proven itself a popular dining spot, in a city known for its expanding restaurant scene. Serving Italian fare, enjoy long-standing favourites including butternut squash gnocchi and Gorgonzola and pear pizza, or try something from the ever-changing specials menu, perhaps grilled lamp chops with roasted vegetable tarte.


Hotel facilities include a complimentary wine hour every evening, a dedicated concierge service, in-room spa services including massages, body treatments and wraps and a state-of-the-art fitness centre. Enjoy a signature cocktail on the rooftop Bar Drake or venture to the Starlight Room, the hotel’s very own nightclub lounge.
