About the Beresford Hotels

Hotel Beresford and The Beresford Arms are historic, boutique-style hotels in Union Square. At these sister Beresford hotels, history is essential. Step back in time when you step into the Arms’ turn-of-the-century lobby, with its original gold-leaf ceiling and lush carpets. Take a peek at carefully preserved, award-winning 1960s restaurant design at the White Horse Tavern at Hotel Beresford, the work of renowned designer Val Arnold.

But modern comforts abound, too: find complimentary Wi-Fi, deluxe bedding, flexible rooms and suites that sleep one to eight guests, in-room honor bars and valet parking.
