Beresford Hotel ★★

Stay near Union Sq on a budget

Would recommend Sat, Apr 14, 2012
The Beresford is a nice although slightly dated place in a great location with fair rates. Our first room was on the back of the building and it was too noisy from some motors outside the windows. So we requested a different room and the hotel staff was very agreeable about making this change. Our new room was much quieter, the bed was comfortable and had everything we needed. The housekeeper was very prompt each morning and left the room neat and tidy. The continental breakfast included fresh fruit and coffee and we could get our day started there. There's a small pub adjacent to the lobby that was very charming. We had a cocktail there every evening along with the complimentary snacks. Overall the Beresford may be a little dated but it has a European charm. We felt very safe there. Be aware there is no A/C in the room so I would not stay here during warm weather.

Hotel Beresford

Would recommend Fri, Apr 13, 2012
It was very central to downtown San Francisco. The hotel was clean and staff were pleasant. The complimentary breakfast was nothing special, but at least it was morning coffee. Very satisfying experience and you couldn't beat the value.

Attractions

East to get most places by the Bart system and by cable car.

Good quick place to stay in SF for the night

Would recommend Mon, Mar 12, 2012
I liked it, not like the Marriott, but it was still not bad. Wifi only in lobby. And I thought the room was tiny with no view outside basically a wall. But besides that it was fun.

Attractions

Find good parking and you can walk to the Close by places. Mall, Chinatown, etc...

Pretty good and excellent value for money

Would recommend Wed, Oct 26, 2011
The only very minor drawback of this hotel is that there is currently no wi-fi in the rooms and that to get internet access it is necessary to use a room on the ground floor. Otherwise I agree with many other reviewers on this site that it represents really excellent value. The room was good and also quiet, the staff extremely friendly and helpful, and the continental breakfast perfectly adequate. Union Square is only minutes away and there is an excellent Italian restaurant within yards. I would stay there again very happily.

Good Experience, good value

Would recommend Fri, Oct 21, 2011
Room was small and more like a London room, but clean and quiet, staff very courteous and helpful. Location is good, the only improvement might be addition of an in-room coffee maker. I especially enjoyed the included breakfast at the adjacent White Horse Pub. Look for the 19th century pound notes in the corner hutch.

Money saver

If staying for several days consider buying a City Pass, especially for Muni transportation (except BART). Trolley is fun, but lines and wait times can be long. Bus and street rail are more frequent, convenient, and cover a much greater area. Attractions in the pass are also worth seeing!

Very disappointing stay

Would not recommend Sun, Sep 11, 2011
One of the draws to this hotel was the relatively low price for parking. Upon arrival, while the rest of my party sat double parked on the street, I ran in to find out about the parking. The desk attendant very rudely told me to park in the garage a few addresses from the hotel. When we parked the attendant gave us a receipt fo have validated by the hotel. Upon check out the clerk validated the receipt and when we presented it to the parking garage, we were told that they did not accommodate guests from this hotel. We wound up paying $35.00 per night. The toilet was broken and was repaired the following day. The floor in the restaurant used for the complimentary breakfast was very sticky. The WIFI only was occasionally accessible. The hotel was very noisy.

Affordable way to see San Francisco

Would recommend Fri, Aug 26, 2011
My husband and I stayed at the Beresford Hotel for 4 nights/5 days during our recent trip to San Francisco. We were in room 319 (towards the back of the building). The room was crisp and cool, and we opened the windows during the day, but during the evening shut them as the San Francisco nights are quite cool. Overall our room was very clean and, although it was a bit small, it sufficiently met our needs for rest each evening. The beds were quite comfortable and we felt that the room was a great value for the evening rate compared to other hotels in the area. We were a short walk to the Powell line cable cars (quite fun to ride all the way to fisherman's wharf) and the Union Square shops. There were many restaurants in the area of varying levels (a great burger place around the corner and down the street was a great french restaurant - Le Central). We would recommend the Beresford for a no fuss traveler that is looking for an affordable room with clean, comfortable beds in a convenient location.

Money saver

Getting a Clipper Card will get you access to all of the metro transit, cable car, and BART systems where purchasing a BART or MUNI card will only get you access to a single system. The Clipper Card is the best value and prevents going home with unused funds!

getting ready for college

Would not recommend Fri, Aug 26, 2011
I found that the location was great, right near my daughter's school dorm and it was convenient to shopping and restaurants. muni bus service was down the street. I found the hotel interior to be average, bureau missing handles, bathroom was sorely in need of an update. room was small and cramped. staff was very busy, had to wait for service, would probably not stay there again.
