Nice afternoon tea, but wifi sucks

The hotel offers afternoon tea, together with wine, free! But the wifi signal is really bad! See full review

Heat wave in San Francisco

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.

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.

Nice location - friendly staff

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

Homely, comfortable base for shopping and sightseeing

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.

Building Showing Its Age

The building is in need of a renovation. The view from our window was of an even more dilapidated building than this one. Be careful not get a room that ends with 15, because it is literally right next to the elevator. The room does have a little kitchen though, with a full size refrigerator, stove, sink, etc. The location is fairly close to Union Square, but unfortunately also pretty close to the Tenderloin district too (not a good neighborhood). The staff was pleasant enough. One nice perk is the tea and wine hour every evening in the lobby. Valet parking was $27 and some change, after tax.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

If you will using public transportation to get around the city (including cable cars) , buy a Muni Passport which is $14 for an unlimited numbers of uses in one day. Otherwise the cable cars are $6 per ride with no transfers. There is a grocery store nearby that you can buy them, Sutter Fine Foods, on the corner of Hyde and Sutter.

Roomy value - but may be a little noisy

Our suites had two double beds and included a desk, bath with jacuzzi, bidet, and double sinks. Kitchen was included with a small table with two chairs. (full oven, microwave, refrigerator). One of our suites had two comfy chairs near the window with a coffee table in between, while the other had a table with two chairs. The neighborhood has nearby grocery and convenience stores along with restaurants. Two blocks away from a variety of car rental shops. One drawback was that the weekend evenings had club/bar music going to about midnight, and then rowdy crowds that go about 'til 1 a.m. This might be minimized by which side of the hotel you're on, but you might ask at the hotel desk. (this will probably mean trading a view for quiet) Breakfast with pastries, fruit, and good coffee and tea are matched with wine, cheese, and snacks at the end of the day. Large comfortable lounge on the first floor includes two computer stations with printing. Free wi-fi in rooms may be a little spotty, but it generally got the job done. They did provide a portable crib which appeared new and clean.

Old fashioned arch with upgrades

The architecture was timeless/classic with essential upgrades (modern bathroom). Morning breakfast was nice (muffin and melon). Location was perfect, just a few blocks from union square.

Not a luxury hotel for sure

There is no self parking offered at the hotel. When you pull up to the curb IF there are not other cars at the curb, you can actually get out and unload your luggage. Then you give your keys to the front desk clerk so he can call the valet who is 20 minutes away to come get your car. So be prepared to wait 20-30 minutes when you are ready to leave to get your car back. The rooms are not newly decorated. I would say the last time the decor and bed coverings were changed was in the 1980's. I'm sure at one time this was a nice hotel, but for now I would compare it to a Super 8 or Motel 6. It was clean enough, but just the bare necessities.
