We (2 if us) got a last minute reservation for 2 nights at a very reasonable price. We had a suite of 2 large rooms, clean and nicely decorated and a giant bathroom, clean well maintained and plenty of hot water. We would stay here again in a heartbeat if we return to SF.

I recently returned from four nights at the Beresford Arms - Tuesday through Friday. I traveled alone and had a double room. I arrived around 10am and was delighted that a room was available and I didn't just have to just leave my suitcase there for the day. I had room 812, the top floor at the back and it... More

The room was clean and there was a nic touch by having a wine and cheese hour. However this hotel has seen better days and seems very dated (I know it is a heritage building), Possibly just not the right hotel for us although the bed was comfy and we got a good sleep just didnt really have a good...

If you are looking for a well located, budget hotel that is well kept this place is ideal. It has a traditional feel, everything is clean and well-looked after and the bathrooms are great. Certainly some of the fittings are a little dated, this is not a luxury boutique place. But my room was huge and the price was really... More

I just came back from spending a whole week in the Beresford Arms so I've got a fairly good idea of what it means to sleep there at any day of the week. First and foremost the location is superb. 5 minutes walking to Union Square and 8 minutes to Powell BART station but without the noise that many hotels... More

I was greeted as soon as I walked into the lobby, and was literally checked in and on the way to my room in under two minutes. All the staff that I dealt with were very courteous and professional. The room was old but comfortable, the bed was fine, and there were new fixtures in the bathroom. Well worth the... More

I come to SF about every other year, sometims more often. If possible, I stay at the Beresford Arms based on past experience. I love the lobby! The location borders Tenderloin, but these days there are so many homeless bums everywhere in SF, it doesn't seem to be any worse here than other areas. I've always found the staff to... More

Good location, but people who work on the reception are very rude. Walls and doors are very thin, so you can hear what is going on in the room next to yours or in the hallway. They say breakfast is included in the price of a room. It is very poor breakfast. They should call it a snack. Rooms don't... More

I want to mention first that the staff was great. We stay in the city quite often when going to Broadway shows, we live across the bay. We checked the posted reviews before booking the hotel. Ok, it's an older hotel and is close to Union Square (4 blocks) but is on the border of the Tenderloin. When we arrived... More
