This hotel was amazing! We reserved a suit and when we got there they upgraded us to a bigger suit for free. When we got to our suit to was so nice and very clean. I was so impressed I had to write a review. Best bachelorette party ever!

I recently returned from a most enjoyable four day stay in the lovely city of San Francisco ( 24th. to 28th. September ) We stayed in the very nice Beresford Arms Hotel on Post Street. It is a lovely old well maintained Victorian hotel at a reasonable cost. I particularly liked the old brass features such as the bedroom taps... More

Great location as Union Square, shopping, and the theater district are a short walk from the hotel. The lobby is elegant and beautifully restored, and we really appreciated the historical San Francisco feel of the hotel as we were showing a friend SF for the first time. Our 7th floor suite was spacious, beds were comfortable, and we even had... More

Hotel is close to Union square, so its easy to find transportation. Also shops are close. The location is still safe though at the border with worn-out and druggy Tenderloin. Too expensive for what it provides.

Having booked despite some mixed reviews (street noise, only one noisy lift etc) we arrived with some trepidation. Firstly our room was clean with two double beds, away from the one noisy lift (as requested), kitchen and new bathroom but NO airconditioning which was needed in the warm to hot weather. Because of tje age of the establishment all windows... More

This hotel would have had 5 stars except for no wifi in room, only in lobby. This hotel is on historic register, but I would go back anytime. Super value and location to Union square. Nice pastry and fruit in the am, wine and cheese in the afternoon, all complimentary. Super clean room!

This hotel turned out to be a perfect fit for us. It is in a great centralized location, close to Union square and cable cars. It had a small kitchen with a real coffee maker, a microwave and good sized bathroom (tub included jets). The bidet was more a conversation piece for my teenagers. I loved the bay window/window seat.... More

We started our Pacific Coast Highway trip in July with a three day stay in San Francisco. We stayed at the Beresford Arms Hotel. The hotel decor was quite charming whilst our room was functional, with en-suite bathroom and tv. Unfortunately no air-conditioning so it was lucky that the temperature outside was cool! Unfortunately there is no restaurant or bar... More
