I should have listed to our travel agent when she suggested another place. The Beresford Arms was OK; large, clean rooms, soft beds, centrally located but the place is NOISY. We spent 4 nights here on the 5th floor and the street was noisy enough to keep us up. The walls are also paper thin as we could hear conversations... More

Stayed here for 4 nights in June on our first visit to San Francisco. Grand old style hotel in a great location just 5/10 minutes walk to Union Square. Room on 8th floor was spacious and very clean, with 2 double beds and a large bathroom. Continental breakfast was fine and afternoon happy hour, complimentary wine and cheese, was a... More

I had an "ok" stay at this hotel, but it could have been a lot better if there was a bit more detail applied to the structure. The hotel is in a fairly central location, with easy access to the heart of San Francisco. There is no direct access to public transit though, so you would need to walk for... More

We enjoyed staying in Beresford Arms. Great location, nice staff, we stayed with our 4 kids into two rooms and could check in early in one room. The family room could have easily housed all of us, but the connecting room made it even more spacious. Breakfast is basic, but free!

The hotel itself is very grand, charming and welcoming. Upon arrival, we were offered an upgrade to an amazing junior suite, which was a very nice surprise. The suite was very well furnished, clean and spacious, like an apartment. Throughout our stay we slept very well, and the staff were helpful. Breakfast was very tasty and the complimentary Cheese/Wine offered... More

We were a family of 10 who stayed at this old and charming hotel for five overnights. We had 3 Jr. Suites (can recommend) on the top floor - absolutely loved the interior, large old fashioned bathrooms, great beds and little kitchen. The morning quick coffee/buns/fruit and afternoon wine/cheese in the lobby were a great hit. The hotel is of... More

Very old fashioned hotel but nice! The hotel is in a very central location..just up the road from Union Square. The hotel room was big enough for 4 people, the bathroom was a little small but other than that no complaints. We booked to have breakfast at the hotel, the breakfast was pastries, fruit and coffee in the reception area..a... More

We stayed at Beresford Arms for 2 nights as a surprise for my hubby. Our travel agent booked the room, informing the hotel we were honeymooners but I don't think the hotel was able to offer any considerations. The room was clean and large, very old fashioned but that's the reason I picked this hotel! We stayed in 304 and... More

An "oldy-worldy" most charming and quaint hotel in a great location, which would not be out of place in an Agatha Christie film! Long flight Sydney-San Francisco, arriving many hours before check-in time. Room was prepared immediately at no extra charge. Accommodation was amazingly spacious, with fully-equipped kitchen complete with table and chairs. Vast bathroom is a "must see" with... More

Charming cute place: Staff quite helpful, breakfast of coffee, pastries & fruit was pretty good. The street gets very noisy at night& the fire engine blasts every 30 mins. In terms of value for $$ in SF I don't think you can get better. SF is ultra expensive...
