My husband and I selected this hotel based on the excellent reviews and reasonable price. The staff was extremely attentive. The front desk clerk was patient in helping us find a place appealing to our taste for dinner. One of the staff members was quick to offer us an umbrella as we were heading out the door on a rainy evening. Our room was clean and charming with a bit of history all around including glass door knobs, books and tea cups and saucers on the fireplace mantle. The location is perfect to catch the Cable Cars to Fisherman's Wharf or walk to China town. There were a lot of restaurants with all types of foods nearby. Everything about the White Swan is the best!
