About this Hotel

Price From $89

'Hood Near the theater district, but bordering the still-sketchy Tenderloin area.

First Impression The Beresford is one of the city's oldest grande dames—it was built in 1911—with original woodwork and period furnishings, such as a writing desk in a parlor off the lobby.

Rooms Several of the 114 rooms were just refurbished, adding crown molding and colonial-style door frames. Hallways are lined with photos of popular city sights.

Plus The White Horse Tavern & Restaurant, known for its generous filet mignon, is a favorite with theatergoers.

Minus The "friendliest hotel in San Francisco" motto is a bit of an exaggeration (we're talking to you, front-desk clerks).

Details Rooms from $89.
