The online photos and reviews of the White Swan Inn were good, but our experience exceeded our expectation.
The decor is very nice, the rooms are all slightly different and charming. The rooms have a mix of interesting and antique furniture along with a Flat Screen TV, classic books are part of the decor. The instant gas fireplace adds so much to evening relaxation. The staff are all very friendly and treated us as family. With only a small number of rooms, the staff know who we are and are very attentive.
There are Deluxe and Luxury rooms. Deluxe are nice, Luxury are just a little more-so.
There are porches and garden area to access for relaxation or social gathering, and a "meeting room" for perhaps a private group conference.
Each morning is greeted with a gourmet breakfast buffet downstairs, prepared by an expert kitchen staff. Each evening there are bottles of fine California wines and delicious treats and the offerings are different each evening.
The background music is always gentle classical, the feeling is comfortable, a cookie jar in the lobby, everything is provided free of any extra charges ...what else can I say?
Within walking distance is about every flavor and type of restaurant. Close to
Union Square. Catch the old SF trolley a block and a half away to Fisherman's Wharf or elsewhere.
This is our personal best hotel stay, anywhere.
Parking a car in San Francisco is expensive, but the hotel has no control over that. They do provide valet parking. Your car disappears and reappears when you want it. In and out throughout the day does not cost any extra.
