As a low-cost hotel in the stylish Nob Hill neighborhood, the Beresford Arms is an especially good choice for large families or groups: A family of up to seven can stay in a two-bedroom suite with a full kitchen, including a complimentary continental breakfast, afternoon wine, cheese, and cookies, for around $210—a practically unheard-of deal. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the public areas have a [‘]20s feel, complete with parlor furniture, white columns, elegant chandeliers, and a grandfather clock. The regular rooms are also large, and all suites—not just the two-bedrooms—have a kitchenette or wet bar. The downsides: It’s a little dated, a little noisy, there’s no air-conditioning (although in San Francisco you’ll almost never need it), and the beds are not the most comfortable. The property’s sister hotel, Beresford Hotel ★, at 635 Sutter St. (beresford.com; [tel] 415/673-9900; $89–$165 double, extra person $15), is another budget option in an old Victorian serving free continental breakfast, but the rooms there are downright tiny and basic. Still, if all you’re looking for is a crash pad, the price is right.
