          Just like so many of the buildings in San Fran that surround Union Square, Sir Francis Drake is a beautifully restored and cared for older building with so much charm and grace! Its staff are helpful and its facilities accessible.

          Gets my tick so far!

          This hotel is stunning. When you first walk in you immediately enter into the bar area where you are greeted by a giant red statue of Sir Frances Drake himself. The architecture in this hotel has an old world feel but the furniture that adorns the bar area is somewhat contemporary and chic. Big long couches with comfy pillows and separate seating areas for several different groups. The only negative about this bar area is the automatic doors are constantly opening and shutting and blowing in cold air so the bar is constantly cold. The servers said that it has always been this way and that this time of year (May) is better that in the summer. They said it is much colder in the bar then. The service from the bartenders to the the servers and the concierge was very prompt and friendly.
          The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. Because this is an old, historic hotel, the bathroom was very tiny. Just a sink, toilet and shower.
          No counter space to put your toiletries. But overall, for our 2 night stay it was sufficient.

          Le transfert de l'aéroport se fait avec deux mini-bus...Uber. Ben oui, nous sommes au coeur de la "disruption", on ne va pas prendre un taxi tout de même ! Et puis, l'un de nos membres est responsable du Développement d'Uber en France : il s'en occupe très bien pour nous. Par contre, les Uber d'ici n'ont pas la qualité de ceux en Europe.

          We arrived after a long flight, this time it was four movies, a couple of meals and a couple of hours sleep for Annie. I amused myself by walking part of the way to San Francisco, up and down the aisles of sleeping, snoring, a few crying babies, movie watchers, and other interesting scenes! Arrival and customs was a breeze. A very friendly woman …

          I arrived in marvelous San Francisco yesterday and did find myself thinking quite quickly - "I could live here". Is this going to be a theme? I must mention the flight. Long and the restless teenager in front kept his seat down the whole way. Even for meals. He was lucky to get off the flight alive. However the leg room was actually pretty good and …

          Another early morning! Up at 5.30, ready to be picked up at 7.00. We went down to have breakfast at the place under the hotel - and it had an A rating! We had opted to take a private car to the airport - at the concierge's suggestion. It was certainly easier than the train option, and at $88, only ended up costing an extra $30 odd. It was a 2015 new four-wheel drive Suburban, so of course Ron enjoyed that, and the guy was really nice. ...
