Beresford Hotel ★★

Great Older Hotel

Would recommend Sat, Sep 1, 2007
My stay was for three nights, The room was an end unit with two windows and was a delight to have the nice breeze coming through the windows.... the room was clean and neat, the hotel staff were very helpful, and the continental breakfast was great! I would recommend this hotel to everyone. It even had a computer downstairs for guests to use.......... The only drawback of all Hotels in San Francisco is the parking... This hotel's parking is aprox. 6 blocks away and cost $26.00 a day....

Awesome Location

Would recommend Tue, Aug 21, 2007
The Beresford Hotel was small, but comfortable. There were three of us and space wasn't an issue. The room was a bit warm, but there was a fan in the room which helped a bit. The bathroom was small, but clean. The only problem was when taking a shower the tub filled up to your knees. We just took shorter showers. I loved the location of the hotel it was within walking distance to all the sites I wanted to see. It was about two blocks to Union Square and the cable car to Fisherman's Wharf. The hotel also supplied valet parking for a reasonable price. It was great not having to worry about finding a spot. I would definitely stay here again.

We chose the hotel because of the location, close to Union Square. The room was small but it was clean and comfortable. We only needed a place to sleep and this hotel was quite adequate.

Attractions

Great place to stay if you want to visit the Theaters.

The absolute WORST

Would not recommend Wed, Jul 11, 2007
Our room was right up against the kitchen with constant clammering of pots and pans in the early morning and evening; Secondly, the room could not have been any smaller or older! One bed, 2 chairs, small dresser, windows that did not stay open and kept sliding down, old smelly curtains, stains on the rug, and finally a 100 year old furnace with chipping paint all over the rug. I looked at other rooms when they were open and there was a definite difference in size! This prompted me to notify the hotel staff requesting a different room and location. I was told I had the last room. The room was so tiny, with a bathroom that one person could barely fit in, no exaggeration! Thank goodness shopping was nearby, keeping me away from my own room.

Modestly Perfect

Would recommend Sun, Jul 8, 2007
An older hotel but very well maintained. Travelling on a budget made this place a great choice. Rooms are small but clean and comfortable. Staff is knowledgable and helpful, and the White Horse (tavern downstairs) is very charming. I would definitely stay here again.

Shopping hint

Couple of blocks from Union Square and several good cafes.

Staff Friendly, Room Clean.

Would recommend Tue, Jun 26, 2007
My recent stay at the Hotel Beresford was pleasant. It was very centrally located in Union Square. Very close to the cable cars (just one block). The only improvement I would suggest would be the mattresses. They are a little stiff, but sleepable! The hotel staff was very attentive to your needs, and always greeted you with a smile. The hotel is small, but very cozy. The continental breakfast consisted of croissants, pastries, OJ, coffee, varieties of fresh fruit, and cereal. Very good for a continental breakfast. One nice thing is that there is a Walgreens just 2 blocks away. It was nice to go and purchase small food items to keep in the room. They do have a honor mini bar, and the prices are very reasonable (i.e. $1.00 for a can of soda, $1.00 for bottle of OJ, and $1.00 for a bottle of water). They also had beer in the mini bar for reasonable amount. Overall I would definitely recommend this hotel to guests. Although the hotel doesn't have A/C, they do provide a box fan in the closet for your use. I would definitely suggest traveling with an extension cord. The plugs are few and far between. VERY GOOD HOTEL FOR THE PRICE!

Money saver

I would definitely suggest purchasing the City Pass prior to your visit to San Francisco. It definitely pays for itself. The City Pass gives you 7 days of unlimited MUNI transportation (cable car, trolly, busses, etc.). Well worth the $$.

Great Location

Would recommend Sat, Jun 23, 2007
The Hotel Beresford is very close to Powell on Sutter, an great location for Union Square, Chinatown, the Mall, or catching a cable car. There are plenty of restraunts in the area although the hotel does have a pub style restuarant inside that is very convenient. A nice complimentary continental style breakfast is a great bonus. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. Our room was next to Sutter Street, a little loud with the window open, but we soon adapted and had no problem. Our room was small, stuffed with a queen size bed and mis-matched furniture; however it was clean. The closet is very small and there were not enough hangers. Bring a hair dryer as our room was not equipped with one. However, hotel staff brought us one which we were able to keep the three days we were there. The bathroom is itsy bitsy and the shower tiny, so don't expect to be able to have two people in there at the same time. The elevator is also quite small and except for a short period on our first day there, it worked great. The only down side was the selection of channels on the television, not that you will spend a great deal of time in a hotel room watching tv if you are in San Francisco! We do recommend the valet parking although it does take a while to get your car, so request it at least 20 minutes before you are ready to go. We found using taxis or public transportation a better way to get around the city instead of dragging our car out every day.

Dining

1. We enjoyed the Italian Restuarant down Sutter before you get to Powell. 2. Breakfast or Dinner at Sears...we had both..very good on both accounts. The Persimmon also has a great breakfast. 3. Chinatown - Dim Sum...enough said.

Nice & Clean

Would recommend Fri, Jun 22, 2007
The Beresford was very old but well maintanined. The room was a bit small but I have stayed in SF before and I think it is comparable to other hotels. The staff was friendly enough. The room was very clean. It is located less than 2 blocks from the trolley and only 4 or 5 blocks from China Town. The hotel does have a business center and a continental breadfast. We had a rent car which we had to pay $25/day for parking. On check out they tried to charge for the honor bar, but when we denied they promptly removed the charged-- so check your charges.

Shopping hint

China Town is few blocks away off Grant. Trolly was 1-1/2 blocks away and will take you to Pier 39, Fisherman's Wharf, Market Street, etc.
