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.

Convenient and Clean

The room was a good size, within walking distance to lots of places, nice water pressure for the shower. heater doesn't work, and the maid ignored the "Please Do Not Disturb" sign.

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.

24 hrs in SF

Needed a place to stay over night after the Neveada Football game. Didn't want to spend $300 on the 4* hotels. We spent $82. The reviews seemed the best for this hotel and I would say they were pretty accurate. Lots of complaints about the room size, but I didn't find that to be the case. Anyway, it was clean, bed was comfortable, and the shower pressure was great. 4-5 block walk to BART. That was all we needed for a quick overnight.

Nice and easy

We went to see the sites of San Fran and the hotel is in a great location for that. We enjoyed the friendly staff and the easy going atmosphere of the place.

Great location, Outstanding staff

The hotel is just two blocks from Union Square in a very safe and walker friendly neighborhood. While we were there a tour group from Great Britain was there which added charm to the already old world ambiance. A previous poster mentioned the issues with getting their car from the valet service. Yes, due to parking issues in San Fran, you have to wait 15-30 minutes to have your car retrieved from a local parking garage, but they went above and beyond to make this part of the experience a positive one for us. They retrieved the car at no expense for us when we forgot an item after the car had already been parked. They also talked with the local parking garage to keep them from charging us for an extra day when we were just hours late to pick up the car. I overheard their advice to the Brits regarding recommendations for local restaurants and they did so with both enthusiasm and with great tips. I would highly recommend this hotel for its price, location, charm and helpful staff.

Charming hotel, friendly staff

The hotel is conveniently located in downtown, just two block east from Union Square and very close to cable cars and public transport. Charming hotel with lots of character. Definitely a deal!! Courteous and friendly staff, always helpful. Comparable to the service you get from 5-star hotels. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to friends and families.

great location

This is a classic hotel from the 30's (I suppose). No frills but a very good daily valet rate with unlimited in/out option. The staff was average. room was average,bring earplugs because you're in the big city and there are people out at all hours not to mention sirens and traffic noise. The beds need to be replaced, they are on the soft side. The neighborhood was safe and loved walking 2 blocks to the shopping. Taxis are cheap too;$10.00 to North Beach.Stay here if Hotel niceties are not your priority and price is.
