Our room was facing the side street and whilst it was a bit noisy, it wasn't unbearable. Bathroom was a good size. Bedroom was acceptable, but tired, good storage in draws,but no tea/coffee facilities in the room. Breakfast was very simple but fine for a quick start. We weren't in for the wine and cheese but it's a nice idea,... More

My friends and I absolutely loved this hotel. The staff were helpful, friendly and accommodating. We enjoyed the reception area that doubled as a tea and afternoon snack area. The location was top, especially for our last minute shopping dash before heading home. We saw a show at a theatre just a few seconds walk away from where we stayed.... More

From the moment we arrived, staff were friendly, helpful, attentive and very competent. The lobby was warm and beautifully decorated for the Holidays and there was an afternoon reception with complimentary wine, cheese and snacks. Our room was lovely, quiet and spotless with a large bathroom, mini-bar as well as cups, plates and glasses. Oddly, there were no utensils but... More

Although this hotel was technically on the fringes of the Tenderloin District, it was only a 4 block walk to Union Square. The hotel itself was great, we had a junior suite that was very roomy. Very large for an older S.F. hotel. Great amenities, free wifi, wine and cheese every afternoon and a light breakfast in the morning. Valet... More

After reading other reviews I was a bit apprehensive however the Beresford Arms was clean ,the staff we came in contact with ,were friendly and helpful. Vince the porter especially. It is in a great spot for union square. Make sure you visit the starlight lounge for some great views of this great city .

Is an old building with a nice breakfast, but too expensive for what you get. The location is the main point of this hotel. Well located in a part of the city where you get access to the main streets very easily in a few minutes.

The location is great. It's located about 5 blocks to Union Square where it is easy to get on the Trolley and buses to explore the city. However, what do you expect out of a hotel that is over one hundred years old?? I researched the hotel and thought staying in a part of the city with history would be... More

Three of us (2 sisters & an aunt) , all 'seniors' had a wonderful 3 nights at the Berresford Arms Hotel. It was a repeat visit, after 2 years, & being satisfied at that time (though my aunt thought there was some kitchen noise she could hear then). This time, there was a bit of street noise during the night,... More

I used to love the Beresford Arms. It used to be my favorite little gem in the city, with its full kitchens and evening wine. But my last experience was so deplorable that I can do nothing but strongly recommend that you stay any ANYWHERE ELSE in the city. Here's what happened: I arrived at the hotel in the early... More
