      My stay at the Beresford Arms was a bad experience and I'll never stay there again. Some of the staff were nice, but a few were rude to guests (not just me). It took them over 30 minutes to bring my car around each time, which nobody informed me of when I checked in. The first time, I called 20 minutes ahead of time assuming that would be plenty - but my colleagues and I ended up late for our very important meeting, which made me look bad. There is no air conditioning, so they had me use a beat up box fan that the front protection piece wasn't even fully attached, that did little to cool the room. There were not near enough electrical outlets, so when I wanted to plug in my cell phone or laptop, I had to unplug something for that to work. There was no decent lighting. The lights in the room barely illuminated it enough to work and then I had to unplug one of the lights to have enough outlets to charge my things. The tv was small & fuzzy. Because there was no air, the windows were left wide open all day with a fire escape leading right to my windows. I realize it was 8 stories up, but someone could have easily come in and stolen all of my stuff. Bottom line, the hotel is in bad need of a major restoration - especially if trying to charge $200 per night to stay there and with all the competition in town. Lastly, I had called ahead and told the front desk that my travel assistant was going to get a credit card authorization form from them and would be paying with a corporate card. They charged my card for the entire stay and said they never received the authorization. After I had already checked out, she showed me the auth form that she had sent to them, but they obviously weren't paying attention. Just a bad experience from start to finish.

      Lovely room. Very pretty place with ornate ceilings. Quaint and interesting looking. Cosy and warm and spacious room. 10 minutes walk from centre of town. Although apparently if you head in opposite direction you are close to a fairly dodgy area to be avoided.

      Terrible breakfast. Dry old pastries and rough coffee. Not enough tables so had to perch and eat.

      Very clean, comfortable, good location, great value

      Another elevator would have been nice. Only 1 car, so going up to the room was slow, and I always took the stairs down.

      The hotel staff were all friendly and helpful. They upgraded my room without even asking and I had a lovely, large room with many windows to see the city surroundings. The breakfast was simple (fruit bowl and pastries and coffee) but it was available and nice to grab an apple on the way out. The price was a great value for the location and I loved the old-world charm and historical feel. It had personality compared to the larger chains.

      Location, cleanliness, value, staff attitude.

      The neighborhood in one direction was a little sketchy, but not immediately adjacent.

      We always stay at the Beresford Arms when we want a day or two in the city. Great value, great location, older hotel with charm. Lots of Europeans stay here, too. Breakfast and tea time are good times to visit with others.

      Very clean and friendly. Liked the coffee and breakfast..Room and view beautiful. Parking was a problem. Desk clerk said I could park at a meter Saturday night and Sunday, free. Not true. Ticketed for street cleaner, Sunday morning at 6am. Sign was a half a block away. $62 ticket!! City wants people to visit, but $37 parking is too steep for a weekend overnight birthday getaway!! Ticketing is ridiculous. DKD
