Beresford Hotel ★★

could have been better

Would recommend Thu, May 6, 2010
I was only in town for one night to see a concert. The restaurant was closed for redecorating,and the pub was small enough that the patrons were spilling out into the street at 9PM (there were only about twenty). I wouldn't recommend the place for more than a couple of nights,and most definitely not if you have children with you.

Shopping hint

The hotel is a short distance from union square where there is an abundance of shopping, eating, and other urban explorer type activities. There are at least three bus stops within a block and the muni staff are helpful. getting around town is no problem if you do not have any luggage.

Comfortable & Decent For Older Hotel

Would recommend Mon, Mar 15, 2010
Nice older hotel, with restaurant & bar. 1.5 blocks from cable car stop. 10 blocks from Moscone Center. Staff was friendly and very helpful. Rooms are small (especially in the front center), clean and acceptably maintained... some renovations being performed on the first floor. No in-room WiFi, WiFi is available near the front desk and guest lounge. No on-site parking, but off-site valet and nearby public parking is available. Accessibility: Two short but wide steps at the entrance, and a sloped step from the lobby to the hallway & elevator W/C users may need assist depending on level. Did not see Braille marks on elevator. Hallways and doors are narrow. If your disability level requires better access, ask about their sister hotel... the Beresford Arms two blocks away (both hotels are older, so not built to ADA but they are trying).

Money saver

1.5 blocks away (at Powell & Sutter) is a Walgreen's Drugstore where you can purchase 1 & 3 day passes for the local buses, cable cars, etc. (excluding BART). This is the same corner with a cable car stop. Union Square, Powell & Market street, and Moscone Center are to the south (down the hill); Fisherman's Wharf, Ghirardelli Square are to the north (up & over the hill)... take the cable car (it's a long walk to those places).

Good hotel with value

Would recommend Tue, Dec 8, 2009
This hotel is central to many attractions. Union Square and Chinatown are within walking distance. The Ferry Building is about 1/2 hour walk away. BART, buses, and cable car @ Powell & Market Sts. are also close by.Room was decent and clean. Room has more square footage than another hotel I stayed at within Union Square at that price level. One front desk person can be pushy about selling you tours even if you don't need it.The bar/restaurant is designed like an English tavern so it can get roudy on a Saturday night. Only one internet terminal so you may have to wait your turn to use it. No wi-fi within the rooms.Valet parking is $30/night[...]

Shopping hint

Plenty of choices to shop within the hotel area. Macy's and other stores within six minute walk. If you're from out of town and shopping @ Macy's: go to the customer service area; show your id; and ask for a discount pass. Art galleries are on Geary St. so one can browse around.

Stay Away

Would not recommend Fri, Nov 27, 2009
Rude staff and old rooms with loud furnace rumbling ALL night. Rooms are cramped and looking back wod have enjoyed staying on the street. This hotel should be avoided at all costs. Also, I left some clothes in the closest and they were not interested in helping look for them. Worst customer service anywhere!
