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.

Great location for the price

The room was clean, not small but not very quiet. It didn't really bother us too much though, because we were so tired after running around all day... No wireless internet and no hair dryer in the rooms. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel is near Union square, a good shopping area. It is also conveniently located close to the cable cars line and at walking distance from the BART. There is a Walgreens store right around the corner.

You get what you pay for

We got in late - it was just a place to crash for the night. The staff were nice, the room was clean. The heat kept kicking in on and off, making the room a bit warm. Opening the window exposed us to a tremendous amount of street noise. At the end of the day, they completely met expectations. It was an inexpensive place near Union Sq that was clean, safe, and nothing else.

Beresford Hotel

Rooms were a bit small, but so are many others in SF. Staff was friendly, rooms are clean. We were there for the B2B and they supplied us with water, juice and power bars. Close to bus stops, walking distance to Powell and Chinatown. Love the experience.

About 5 blocks away, catch the #2, 3, or 76 bus on Sutter to Larkin, walk a block down to Post and you'll find Little Henry's. A great and inexpensive restaurant that serves great food.

Great Location for the Price

The hotel was in a fantastic location, just a couple blocks from Union Square and the historic trolley turn-arounds. We walked down everyday to catch the trolleys to Fisherman's Wharf and Pier 39! There has to be at least 50 restaurants within walking distance; Thai, Italian, French, American, etc. If you are interested in a hotel for more than a place to sleep you may want to consider other options - the room was smallish and the free breakfast was not great but it fit our needs perfectly.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Get the CityPass! You'll get unlimited trolley rides and rides on any of the city Muni busses. At $5 or more per ride it can add up fast. Plus the CityPass also gets you into 4-5 attractions - well worth the money (about $70 / person for a weeks worth)

Nothing Special, But gets the job done

This hotel is going for an antique look with older furniture, but just appears to be old and outdated. It really wasn't anything special and needs updating. The bed was comfortable and everything worked just fine. My first room was room x05 which was right next to the elevator. Everytime someone took the elevator you heard it. Next night I got moved to another room and it was fine. At times you hear noise coming from the bar that is attached to the hotel, but it was nothing that kept me awake.

Great little Hotel

I stayed at the Beresford with my two young children and we had a wonderful stay. The hotel stay is friendly and helpful. The free breakfast was fresh and delicious (fruit, pastries, donuts, cereal, coffee), and the location of this hotel is perfect!!! A quick walk two blocks and you're in the heart of Union Square. The White Horse restaurant in the hotel looks great. The pub was hopping (I didn't go because I was with the kids - but it looked really fun). The restaurant was closed for renovations, but the menu looked great! I will definitely make this my "go to" place each time I say in SF.

Affordable Price but smokey smell

The hotel is just a minute away from the Powell Street which is the heart of the Union Square, no complain for the special price at $167 including taxes and fees for 2 nights. But the strong smokey smell in the room make you feel uncomfortable, anyway the hotel is in a good and safe location.
