My husband and I spent 2 nights at this boutique hotel just a couple of blocks from Union Square to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We enjoyed a lovely room on the 5th floor with king bed and fireplace. The room was on the backside of the hotel which was surprisingly quiet for being in downtown. The views were just of the surrounding roofs, but we did not linger inside during daylight much so did not matter. Bathroom is small with no tub. Very clean and the staff was friendly and courteous. Being an old building, the floors do creak a bit but this adds to the charm. Love the old-fashioned elevator.
Good location if you are comfortable walking a few blocks to get to Union Square and don't mind some hills. We enjoyed walking to Muni on Market Street (about 7 blocks) to catch the light rail to Golden Gate Park. Cable cars are only two blocks away, but very crowded in the peak seasons.
We preferred a full breakfast to the continental one served at the hotel so we did not partake in this offering (included with room). Basic fare: pastries, toast yogurt, fruit, granola, warmed eggs, etc. Good enough if you are eager to get on with your tour or business. Otherwise, plenty of places to eat nearby. Recs: Persimmon Cafe on Sutter for full breakfast, Farrallon on Post for fantastic dinner. We will return to the White Swan Inn on our next SF getaway.
