Victorian style, family atmosphere and free breakfast near Union Square

Comfort, hospitality and convenience are plentiful at the Hotel Beresford, a quaint family-owned hotel blocks from the action of San Francisco's Union Square. From the street, the Victorian-style building looks like an apartment complex. Inside, however, cozy touches such as tufted chairs and whitewashed wood present a down-home feel. This feeling extends to the White Horse Tavern, the on-site restaurant, where pints outnumber flutes and the jukebox is always on.

Highlights
  • Knowledgeable staff
  • Walking distance to Union Square, Chinatown and City Hall
  • On-site tavern is a replica of an old English pub
  • Refrigerated honor bars in every room
Rooms

Efficiency trumps luxury at the Beresford. All of the property's 114 rooms come standard with private bathrooms, refrigerated honor bars and satellite television. Pets are welcome (fees apply).

Features

The Hotel Beresford is all about location; it sits two blocks from Union Square, where visitors can catch cable cars to numerous other parts of the city, including Fisherman's Wharf, the Financial District and more. It's also a short walk to Chinatown, City Hall or the Theater District. The hotel boasts knowledgeable staff members who can suggest itineraries for exploring town.


All guests receive complimentary continental breakfast daily, as well as access to a public Internet terminal in the lobby.

 

Dining

Old England comes alive inside the White Horse Restaurant and Tavern, the on-site eatery. The establishment offers pre-theater dinner specials for patrons rushing to catch a show. It also serves Harp and Guinness, two mainstays of United Kingdom pub life.

Charge for hotel pick up

I liked the hotel a lot but I was surprised that I was charged for the hotel shuttle. I thought that if a hotel says they have a shuttle that it was included in the price. The hotel has flavor. The red carpets and yellow walls make it beautiful. The room and the bathroom were a bit small and cramped but it didn't bother me. I would not have wanted to share the room with a second person. It was very hot the first night there. I opened the window and it cooled off. The next night was colder but still comfortable. There was not a way to adjust the heat in the room. Overall I was happy and I would stay there again if I return to San Fran.

Good price for staying in the city

Room is small but enough for 2 of us, rather reasonable hotel if you want to stay in the city. Our room was not with bath tub, I am not sure this hotel has rooms with bath tub. Power outlet should be near bedside tables but it was on the other side of the wall, so it was not convenience. Breakfast was included but just some pastry and hot drinks, better than nothing, you can not expect a lot for this. Overall, if you just look for a place to sleep, this is a good, comfortable hotel for this price.

Well situated, very english, low quality service

We were upgraded to a larger room! But close to the elevator and with a window to the street. Service from the cleaning people were excellent, but service from the reception gave the worst service we ever met around the world!!!

Would definitely recommend The Beresford Hotel. It is located centrally within easy walking distance to Union Square and China Town. Rooms are clean and have good facilities.

Great Location for my Destinations

The Beresford is ideally located for the tourist who wants to be near Union Square, the cable cars, and the the Geary and Curran theaters. China Town is not far away, nor is the Civic Center Plaza. The room was quite satisfactory and very clean. I took the bus on Geary out to the Legion of Honor and walked to Union Square and China Town.

Great experiance

Everything you would expect from a 4 star hotel for a better value. The hotel was older and had a lil musty smell. Other than that, it was a great place to stay.
