We have just returned from 4 great days staying at the Beresford Arms. It is an old style hotel so if you are expecting modern decor this hotel is not for you. Rooms were clean and pleasantly decorated with all modern conveniences such as a large TV. The free wine reception every evening was fantastic. Red and white wine available...

Stayed there for 4 nights in June. It is well located near Union Square. The room and the bathroom are really spacious and clean enough. The whole hotel has an old feel but everything works well. Internet computers in the lobby came in handy. Staff is just ok. Breakfast and afternoon snack/wine are quite lame. In general, Beresford Arms is...

Hotel is avarage+ value for money, but not exceptional. Room was ok, but a bit dark. Even if our room was not facing the Post street noise came into room at nights. Bathroom was spacious and good. If coffee and tea are enough to make breakfast great then that’s what it is, but if you expect a bit more to...

I prefer old school and history to modern luxury so this was a good choice. Great location to go to attractions, walking distance to Union Square. No ac but in San Francisco didn't need any.

Our stay at the Beresford Arms was mine & my husband's first trip to San Francisco. For the price I thought the hotel was a great location (about 3 blocks from Union Square), cab fares from here aren't very expensive, and there are lots of good restaurants within walking distance. Had a kitchenette in our junior suite which was great...
