I was looking for a Union Square Hotel to book which had twin beds since I was going to San Francisco with a colleague from work. I enjoy her company but was not too keen on sharing a bed! The Beresford Hotel had a room that met our needs and the reviews were good – so we booked it. We were not disappointed. The hotel has a lot of charm, the staff friendly and the rooms were clean. Yes, the rooms are smaller and the bathroom is a bit tight, but for the age of the building that is to be expected. We were glad we went to the back of the building as it seemed quieter. Water pressure was great and lots of hot water which is often an issue at the older hotels. There needs to be hooks added to the walls in the bathroom as there was nowhere to hand a towel or your clothes when you took a shower and the sink vanity is not large enough to hold them. As well- bring a night light or small flashlight for that middle of the night trip to the loo. The light in the bathroom went into some type of disco-effect flashing attack when you turned it on, not nice at 3 am! The bar fridge was well stocked and the prices reasonable which is a nice change from other hotels. Breakfast was served in the White Horse Tavern on the main floor and it was a good basic breakfast with fruit, pastries, cereal and of course coffee that was really good. However my main concern about the hotel was that a)the coffee was not available until 7 am and b) after 10 there is no coffee available. OK- I like my coffee I guess! There are no coffee makers in the room so I would like to suggest they put a coffee maker in the little lounge area where the ice machine is on the main floor. Or even get rid of the small main-floor fitness center that had a tread mill and elliptical in in (really - - - this is San Francisco, if you want to walk or run or climb stairs go outside!) and make a coffee room. All in all, a nice place to stay and I will happily return next time we visit the city.
