Best kept secret in SF. Rooms are cozy, fire place, bed extremely comfortable. Walking distance to so much SF has to offer. Breakfast downstairs in the parlor is pleasant and has several choices, including some vegetarian options. I would absolutely stay again.

I stayed at this hotel because it was close to where I was going for business, and I had seen photos of the quirky wallpaper and cozy rooms. I will go back for the wallpaper, but also because it was immaculately clean and the rooms were spacious. I felt like I was staying in a cross between a hotel and... More

My first impression wasn't so positive, very old building, but the hotel grew on me. Very nice idea with the fireplace! The picture of the room didn't match very well with reality, and the bathrooms are pretty worn. The location is great and so is the staff. The breakfast could be better, every morning they ran out of dishes, and... More

They gave us recommendations for restaurants nearby and we tried two of them and they were outstanding. The breakfast in the morning had a nice variety of items and a... More

The deluxe king room we had was charming, with a fireplace and very comfortable bed. The inn provides breakfast and a wine hour in the evening. The location is very convenient to Union Square as well as other areas. But the helpfulness of the staff is what sets the inn apart from most places. This is the exact opposite of... More

Very nice friendly place to stay, unless you want everything new. Beautiful place to stay after a long intercontinental flight. Close to Union Square, lots of nice places to eat nearby and friendly staff to guide you there.

The White Swan Inn is a wonderful place to stay while visiting or working in SF. It has old world charm but is nicely remodeled, clean, comfortable and most notably QUIET! And here's a huge plus: The windows open. I stayed there for 2 nights last week and slept like a baby...
