Just okay

Hotel pretends it has wifi in the rooms but it only just about works in the lobby. Staff were ok but the rooms we're run down.

Convenient Location

Posted May 31, 2014
Close to downtown and public transportation. Easy to get to everything we wanted to do. Hotel is dated, but this is San Francisco. It was clean and comfortable. Enjoyed the complimentary wine & cheese in the afternoon.

Good location

Posted May 23, 2014
Pros: Good location and reasonably priced for San Francisco
Cons: WiFi needs fixing. Some sort of sound proofing on the windows and the noisy heating system needs looking at.
Location: Great location. Short walk from Union Square with its transport links to the rest of town, shopping and restaurants.
This hotel is well located just a short walk from Union Square. It is one of the older hotels in San Francisco and has limited facilities. No restaurant or coffee shop, although breakfast of pastries and fruit is served in the foyer area. Our room was comfortable but there are noise issues, especially on Saturday nights. None of the windows are double glazed and there is no air conditioning. Heating in our room was provided by a small radiator that gurgled it's way through the night. There was complimentary wine, cheese and nibbles provided in the evening between 5pm and 7pm, a nice touch. The staff were helpful and although the hotel needs some work it was fair value. One word of warning; the WiFi is hopeless. We could not get a consistent signal even in the foyer where we were told it was strongest. We had been travelling around the States for an extended period and it was important that we were able to keep in touch with family. It is so bad that they shouldn't advertise this as a benefit.

Great breafast provided, friendly staff. Afternoon wine and cheese a nice bonus. Convenient location as long as you like walking, not far to all major attractions but because of the hills may cause problems for some people.

My trip to San Fran

Posted May 21, 2014
Pros: The classic atmosphere
Cons: The elevator
Location: In the heart of downtown, 10 mins away from bay bridge, golden gate, fisherman warf
Beresford is a classic old hotel downtown San Francisco close to all main attractions. Good quality accommodation and an excellent continental breakfast

Location: Close to Union Square. Easy walk.
We had family members in four different rooms. Staff excellent. Very friendly and helpful. Rooms met needs. Happy hour with wine and snacks was our daily meeting place and well received. Area great, although rooms backing on adjacent hostel were more noisy. Continental breakfast welcome but would have been better with juices and better pastries. We were very happy with our stay.
