The only reason why I stayed here was because it was the cheapest half way decent hotel I could find during Fleet Week at $124/night. All the other hotels were much more money since Fleet Week is a very busy time to visit. The hotel is in a good location about 3 blocks from Union Square... It is quite an... More

Stayed there in a junior suite. Weather was warm, but hotel didn't have air conditioning. "Free breakfast" turned out to be some cut up fruit and muffins/croissants and tea/coffee, to be eaten around coffee tables in the hotel lobby. Staff were OK. Good location and reasonable rates. Hotel was comfortable, but not salubrious in any way.

Trip/Advisor Beresford Arms Hotel, 701 Post St., San Francisco. Wow, what a place. But before I break out in loud praise, I must mention that we got upgraded to a suite. For us, one of the best ever. Two recently refurbished large rooms with two TV’s, and large, sunny bay-windows. (They could stand some cleaning.) Fully equipped kitchen. Large bathroom... More

The bathroom and interior was outdated. But the beds were comfortable and clean. Wine hour was nice

Excellent location, within walking distance to buses and street cars. Great wine and cheese in afternoon, even kids enjoyed. Place was clean, people were very nice. No car necessary. Don't rent it until you are leaving the city.

We stayed here for several days and enjoyed our stay. The Hotel has a very civilised way of allowing guests to meet and mingle by offering a light continental style breakfast in the lobby and a wine, cheese and nibbles hour in the late afternoon. Guests could meet other travellers and exchange ideas and tips on what to see and... More

The hotel was within easy reach of attractions such as Union Sq, cable cars and tour buses. The room was spacious, clean and on the whole well equipped although a kettle would have been handy (we used the microwave instead.) The staff were nice and helpful, the cheese and wine in the early evening was pleasant and the breakfast was... More

We traveled to San Francisco in August to visit family. We were looking for a place with enough room for us to spend time together comfortably. The parlour suite was wonderful and even better than we expected. The murphy bed was so much better than a pull out sofa and the separate bedroom had extremely comfortable beds and lots of... More

This hotel is great if youre wanting something within walking distance of the popular Union Square. Its in a good location, for travelling to nearby places and public transport nearby is also great. However be weary of wandering a couple of blocks south, into the tenderloin (pretty seedy, with homeless and drugs-best to avoid). The room was extremely clean and... More

Even when you see good reviews you don't really know what you are getting in to until you are on-site. I am glad I got in to this hotel. Yes it is an old hotel but the rooms are in great shape and every member of the staff from the front desk to the maid service was extremely nice and... More
