Beresford Hotel

It was an overall nice hotel with a very good location and clean too but it was really old and the windows wouldn't close properly so we had a lot of noise in our room and the breakfast was not bad either.

This hotel is in an excellent location just a block away from Union Square. It's a great base to tour the city and has an excellent bar wich we took full advantage of. The bar does free snacks such as hot dogs etc. Breakfast was included and had a generous helping of croissants, pastries and cerials together with fruit and drinks.

Nightlife hint

The hotel boasts it's own pub and it was excellent place to have a few drinks and unwind from touring around and discovering the city.

great value

Would recommend Wed, Sep 8, 2010
This was a very cute, quaint hotel for a great price! Staff was very helpful and friendly. Location was good-only a couple of blocks from trolley cars and buses. However, our three carry-on suitcases took up too much space in the small room and so there was hardly room to walk in certain areas. We would stay here again, probably for up to three nights, but not longer due to the limited room space for us (2 adults and 1 child).

Money saver

Hotel staff recommended we buy bargain transportation passes at Walgreens, which was only 2 to 3 blocks away. We bought the one day pass (they also offer a 3 day pass)and had unlimited use of San Francisco's trolleys, electric cable cars, and buses for the day. These passes are probably sold at other locations, too.

Best bang for your buck

To book the hotel for my SF trip, I've been reading all the reviews of the hotels and I decided that I will try the Beresford Hotel. Some of bad reviews made me little worried, but the price was unbeatable. When I got there, I noticed that the hotel was located in heart of downtown SF. A block from trolleys, two blocks from union square, which makes so easy to get from SFO by BART (Powell, ~25min) and go to fisherman's wharf. Most staffs were very nice and helpful. Even though the location is in the heart of downtown, the hotel was very quiet, and it had so many restaurants and cafes around it. Complimentary breakfast was nothing fancy, but nice to have (7-10am, menu: cereals, some pastries, fruits, and beverages) Complimentary internet access was only available on 1st floor, and there was a computer available for guest. For it's cons, this place had very out-dated decoration, dining hall, and room. The queen bed was not firm enough, the room had an old tube TV and little loud mini fridge. The shower booth in the bathroom was missing a handle bar. However, for the price I paid, I thought it was adequate place to stay. Clean, quiet, prime location, and cheap price.

Excellent location but overpriced

Would not recommend Sat, Aug 28, 2010
Excellent location but without airconditioning, tended to get very noisy whenever windows were opened. Housekeeping left much to be desired and the attending staff were choosy about whom to serve voluntarily.

Shopping hint

Chinatown for shopping and plenty of restaurants nearby. Whitehorse restaurant within the hotel was actually quite shoddy.

Very comfortable. Great location. A few blocks from Chinatown, the trolley, Port of San Francisco, etc.

Dining

Lori's "50's" Diner is only 2 blocks away. Great food, atmosphere, and service at a reasonable price.

Great little hotel

Would recommend Fri, Aug 6, 2010
This was our third trip to this hotel. We love its location (2 blocks from Union Square and just off Powell Street), its continental breakfast, the small but very pleasant pub-type bar, and the friendly staff--they all remember our faces each time we go and greet us with a big smile and a "nice to see you back!"

Dining

For the next couple of months, the dining room at the hotel is closed for remodelling. But, just a few doors down the street is the Marines Memorial Club which has a wonderful restaurant on the twelfth floor with a great view. And there are several restaurants of various types within a 2 block walk.
