When we found out that we were joining a group going to San Francisco for the marthahon (we were joining the other grandparents to help watch the four kiddo's)-I asked where everyone was planning to stay. The larger chain hotel was one that I had stayed before and I was not impressed. Eight years ago, I stayed at the Bereford... More

After our stay in the Carmel Village Inn, we travelled up to San Francisco and stayed at the Beresford Arms for 4 nights. The hotel was in the historic part and well located. Handy for Union Square. The hotel was very nice, clean and comfortable and had some lovely decorative features. Breakfast was OK and complementary wine and cheese in... More

Lover old hotel with large full kitchen and living area for a hotel. Loverly foyer and friendly staff. Just up from union square and plenty of eating places close by. A short walk to the cable cars and if you feel fit you can walk over the hills to fisherman's wharf. The only negatives for this hotel would be that... More

The hotel was very nicely decorated and was full service in an older heritage building a few blocks from Union Square.. Our hotel room had everything in it that I could have expected, down to a bidet, not that I used it, but you know a place is classy when you have the option. They do provide free continental breakfast... More

We have just returned from 4 great days staying at the Beresford Arms. It is an old style hotel so if you are expecting modern decor this hotel is not for you. Rooms were clean and pleasantly decorated with all modern conveniences such as a large TV. The free wine reception every evening was fantastic. Red and white wine available... More

Stayed there for 4 nights in June. It is well located near Union Square. The room and the bathroom are really spacious and clean enough. The whole hotel has an old feel but everything works well. Internet computers in the lobby came in handy. Staff is just ok. Breakfast and afternoon snack/wine are quite lame. In general, Beresford Arms is... More
