Beresford Arms Hotel ★★★

Satisfied Again at the Beresford Arms

Would recommend Mon, May 26, 2014
My partner and I have stayed at the Beresford Arms many times over the last 8 years, and it's just as consistent as always. By consistent, I mean in value, cleanliness, friendliness of the staff, and convenience. From the moment we arrived, all the staff members, including the housekeeping staff, made it clear that they were their to make our stay comfortable. The room, a junior suite, was spacious, and included a fully-stocked refrigerator in which the prices for the items were actually reasonable. ($1.25 for soda--that's cheaper than at the stores nearby). Everything was quite clean, although it looks as if the carpeting in the rooms need replacement. The location can't be beat--only 5 blocks or so away from Union Square on Post Street. True, the streets south of the hotel that lead to Union Square aren't the greatest, but Post is just fine. The daily wine and cheese is a great way to meet people from all over the world and to exchange travel ideas, etc. The daily breakfast works the same way--and the coffee they serve is delicious, as is the fresh fruit! We would definitely stay here again--and probably will, for what would be our 10th time.

For the money its pretty good

Would recommend Fri, Mar 28, 2014
For that proximity to downtown there is not much better for the money than here. The building is a bit older and their is some crazy pigeon stuff going on in the back, but the staff was great and I was certainly surprised by the wine and cheese in the lobby in the early evening.

Very good location

Would recommend Mon, Jan 27, 2014
We enjoyed our stay, there is no air conditioner and it was unusually hot. We told the front desk and they supplied us a fan and extension cord. We were very comfortable after that.

Perfectly Sized Room

Would recommend Wed, Jan 22, 2014
The Beresford Arms Hotel was a really nice place to stay for a long weekend in San Francisco. Our Queen room was the perfect size and was a great home away from home for our four night stay. Though it isn't the most modern hotel, everything was clean and comfortable. The common areas were really lovely and welcoming! Breakfast was provided, and was a happy hour with win, cheese, and juice boxes. The staff is very attentive and helpful! We had a little bit of trouble connecting to the wireless, but that could have been the location of our room, as we had no trouble in the lobby. You are just blocks from Union Square and very close to restaurants and amenities in Nob Hill, as well as being very close to lots of Asian inspired restaurants nearby.

Dining

Olea for brunch in Nob Hill was excellent--get the French Toast!

Heat wave in San Francisco

Would recommend Tue, Jan 21, 2014
Hotel clean, quiet, but stuffy and hot. There was no air conditioning to cool down room in the heat wave. Air was stale and windows opened on to fire escapes save one. Recommends with reservations about A/C.

Dining

Food at Kokkari Estiatorio Restaurant is not the old fashioned authentic home made Greek Food. It is more commercial , salty and a disappointment from other years.

Our USA Holiday

Would recommend Mon, Sep 16, 2013
San Francisco was the second city in our tour of the USA. Beresford Arms hotel is in a very good central location within walking distance of Powell Street and Union Square. Hotel is a little dated, but the staff were very friendly and the evening complimentary wine was very welcome after a long day. Price was reasonable given the location and that continental breakfast was included. I would return to this hotel.

Nice location - friendly staff

Would recommend Sun, Aug 4, 2013
Only a few blocks up from Union Square. The rooms were quiet and comfortable. It's an old hotel and that shows at times but the staff were great. Liked the big lobby too

short weekend

The staff were very good, efficient. The problem with the room is that the windows are old and need replacing. I was on a lower floor room and the noise on Friday and Saturday nights goes on to 4am!
