Perfect and Quaint

Would recommend Wed, May 1, 2013
The staff at this hotel were the sweetest and most helpful people you could ever ask for. The wine and cheese hour and the breakfast being setup in a living room style area by the main lobby was a very nice touch. The location was very convenient to Union Square. We just wish we could have stayed another night or two. Would most certainly go back there next time we are in San Francisco.

fairly nice location, very pleasant and helpful staff

Would recommend Mon, Apr 8, 2013
This hotel was certainly within walking distance to Union Square. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the complimentary wine and cheese hour was very pleasant- a chance to meet new people and relax after sightseeing. The breakfast included pastries and fresh fruit. The level of room cleanliness was not what we hoped for.

Beresford Arms Hotel

Would recommend Mon, Feb 18, 2013
A good place, big rooms (mine had a full kitchen inside), free breakfast (limited choice) , good position in the city (not far from Union Square) and good, free Internet connection, The building and the rooms are old, but that is part of the hotel fashion.

Hotel was fine

Would recommend Tue, Nov 13, 2012
The hotel has probably seen better days but it has a certain charm--the lobby is pretty, there lots of nooks and crannies, our room was below the lobby, owing to the major hill the hotel is built on. Our room Internet did not work, but it worked fine in the lobby. Our room was quiet but a bit dark. It was spacious enough and the kitchen ammenities would be great for those needed them. The location was good to the cable cars and other attractions and given this is SF, the value for price paid was approaching good.

Attractions

Had my wife not insisted we ride the cable cars, I would have dismissed them as too touristy. Do it! We had a blast hanging the side up and down and down and up. What fun! Be sure to go the market on Embarcdero--tons of shops with artisanal goodies.

Homely, comfortable base for shopping and sightseeing

Would recommend Sun, Nov 4, 2012
I stayed at the Beresford with my three daughters and we had booked a junior suite but we were upgraded to a large corner suite (307) with a living room which had a pull down double bed and dining area, bedroom with two double beds, a kitchen and bathroom. Beds were so comfortable! The location was perfect, being just a short walk to Union Square with shops, cable cars and tour buses. The staff are lovely and very helpful and made sure that we had everything we needed. Breakfast pastries and fruit were a bonus and the wine and cheese socials were lovely and so nice to come back to in the late afternoon. There was some street noise but this is San Francisco and it was short lived. We couldn't fault this hotel and would return again without hesitation. Highly recommend it.

Great place to stay.

Would recommend Wed, Oct 10, 2012
We stayed on the 6th floor in a junior suite. It was worth the extra money. Breakfast was danish, croissants, muffins and fruit. Wine and cheese and nuts was very good. Lots of wine and plenty of snacks. After a long day out and about is was nice to come back to the hotel and relax. Very clean place to stay. Walking distance to transportation. I would definitely stay here again.

Money saver

Buy a three day pass and ride the trolleys, cable cars and buses everywhere you want to go.

Close to downtown san fran

Would recommend Wed, Sep 12, 2012
Was very clean which is the most important thing. Was told I was going to have two queen beds and they were just full beds. Had a gluten free friend and wasnt much to eat for her at breakfast so had to go out most of the time. No lobby bathrooms to use. Overall the price was good and room clean. I would recommend this hotel to others.

Dining

Honey Honey and Sears were great breakfast places short distance from hotel.

OK Hotel to stay

Would not recommend Tue, Jul 3, 2012
1st, then is not an efficiency short term stay of more than 4 days. Refrig is small, no stove, only microwave. As for room, the room was only a bedroom with a bathroom and small area for preparing food. Did not bother to eat in as it was not convenient to do so. I was hoping for something like the Grosvenor Suites which is under new management. I would not stay here again except that it did not involve climbing some of those San Fran Nob Hill Hills

Dining

Rue La Pic is a great restaurant - small, not much room but the food is great and delicious - a little on the expensive side but tastes great!
