This was our 4th stay at The White Swan. You can walk to Union Square and all the shops and art galleries. We really enjoy talking to the other guests during the free wine reception each night. This trip we met people from Norway, China, Ottawa, Canada, and Australia as well as several from various US states.

Non-descript, small hotel suited us very well. Well-informed, most helpful staff. Complimentary (full and enjoyable) breakfasts and mid-afternoon snacks added to the Inn's value. Located well between Union Square and Nob Hill, and near the cable car lines and a variety of good restaurants.

Everyone of the staff were so friendly and helpful. They knew all the places to go and the best way to get there. The breakfast every morning was fantastic, and the wine at night very relaxing. What was really nice was that we were able to meet and talk to people from all over the world who were staying there

We stayed at White Swan Inn in March and enjoyed the charm of this sweet little hotel! The fresh baked cookies each day were a plus too and definitely appreciated after a long day walking in the city. One evening we even enjoyed the complimentary happy hour which included white/red wine, cheese, fruit, crackers. How much fun! The hotel is... More

This place was really charming. The room was huge, with a nice fireplace, but the bed was a bit old, as well as the bathtub. Breakfast was nice, but not that great. Cookies in the afternoon was a really nice attention.

A small and very personal hotel/inn in downtown San Francisco. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. The afternoon complimentary snacks and wine was an excellent opportunity to meet other guests. Nice with the fireplace in the large room and that the breakfast and minibar was included.

I have stayed at The White Swan numerous times, and it's always a treat. Breakfast is delicious, the parlor a comfortable place to relax, the room I had this time was large and comfortable, and the location is ideal. The only quibble I have is with the elevator, which is rather cumbersome to operate, and which I avoided as much... More

We have stayed at the Petite Auberge and/or The White Swan 4 different times over the years. The staff is very helpful, the bed very comfortable, the location is excellent. I will say however, that we had not been there for several years and we found the breakfasts and afternoon wine were not as good as before. The selections were... More
