Awesome place! Room was huge for two people, nicely decorated and very clean. Perfect location. Walking distance to most everything, cable car only a few blocks away. Very friendly and obliging staff! Loved the idea of complimentary wine and canapes in the afternoon. Breakfast was great, just need a few more tables in the courtyard, otherwise dining room is nicely... More

Very quaint a step back in time when service was important, Andy is exceptional! Love the inn especially the old Otis elevator. The room was great, very clean. Location is good, a bit away from the tourists, really interesting area.

If you enjoy a great hotel with a great staff, within walking to Union Square, Chinatown, the wharf and cable cars, this is the place to be. The rooms were exceptional and wine hour and breakfast was perfect!

Nice room - good service - good location. This was our last 4 nights as part of a round tip in Canada and US. Very nice with the complimentary afternoon reception with wine and hors d'oevres, where you can meet the other guests.

We had so much fun staying at this hotel which is more of a bed and breakfast. Everyone was so nice to us and the breakfast was great. The soda bread was beyond delicious! We asked for few slices to take to our daughter as part of a housewarming gift. They wrapped up a whole loaf and tied it with... More

The room, the location, the staff, the little extras that make staying someplace special- all of those are here at the White Swan Inn. My husband loved the plush king size bed. I loved how the room gave us space to relax as well as simply stay. The breakfast buffet and the afternoon wine are fabulous. Great location and so... More

Really great place centrally located. Full breakfast included, wine in the afternoon. Very clean, hospitable and the rooms were very clean. Private garage service that you pay for but well worth it because of the parking problem in san Fran

this hotel is more like an upscale bed and and breakfast. From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty. The man who assisted us with our luggage (Andy) provided us with many tips on restaurants, public transportation, and places to visit. Everyone at the front desk assisted us many times of the day and night. Our room was... More

My syster and I liked every minute in the Hotel. A very good location, verry warm atmosphere. The staff was very nice and dedicated to the service, the food including the wine & appetizer, free coofee and tea 24 hours a day. We just arrived and were invited to breakfast. Will come back and send friends and Familie.
