We have stayed at White Swan several times. The services and amenities are outstanding. The receptionists and all other staff members cannot do enough for you. The breakfasts are wonderful. The cookies are an added treat and delicious. The wine social each afternoon is a nice touch to encourage camaraderie and relaxation after a busy day in the city. We... More

As always we enjoyed our short stay at the White Swan. The Hotel is now under new management and the results are wonderful -- a revamping of the rooms, which incorporate the traditional and modern look of a city inn. Still very clean, comfortable and cozy. The site is ideal for walking to wonderful restaurants, public transportation and shopping. The... More

Very friendly staff makes you feel welcome at this cozy, 70's-inspired inn. The place is small and old but well maintained and in a great location (walking distance to Union Square and Chinatown). Rooms are all unique with fireplaces and cool artwork with a fun and casual feel. If you're used to modern hotel bathrooms you might be disappointed in... More

Old fashion inn. Our room was comfortable and clean. Great location for seeing all the sites in San Fran. The front desk was always helpful and pleasant. Pleasant breakfast each morning and wine/cheese in the evening. I would recommend and plan to return.

Family trip in downtown San Fran. Picked this location based on reviews and free breakfast. Older hotel. Free sodas/water. Great homemade breakfast. Close to trolleys. Notes: - Take the California line to the financial District then F car to the wharf. the Powell Street trolley was almost impossible to use. - Metro Transit Pass purchased at Walgreens does not take...

We had a great room, the breakfast was pleasant and the location was perfect for exploring the city on foot. I would recommend it for sure. I give it 4 stars and not 5 because the valet company they use got our car into an accident and didn't take responsibility for it. Not necessarily the hotel's fault, but this is... More

Nice and old fashioned inn in SF. Lift antiquated and frightening. If you like modern boutique hotels or Sheraton type concrete blocks with a business center and 24h room service this one is definitely not for you. Otherwise it has a charm of its own. Mind the valet parking fees and time required to retrieve your car if you are... More

If you are looking for a central location within walking distance of various neighbourhoods and attractions, this is the place to sat. We ditched the rental car and walked everywhere for two days. The staff is so helpful and professional. The late afternoon wine and snack as well as the breakfasts were spot-on. Couldn't ask for better. Slept very soundly... More

The only problem I had was before we arrived when I arranged with some unknown person to have a King bed in one room and 2 Queens in another room. When we checked in we were told they DID NOT have any double queen rooms. Meaning it wasn't even an option. A little disappointed but it worked out anyway.
