I booked based on reviews I read on this site-so disappointed! DAniel on the front desk was friendly and helpful. the older man at check-out was very helpful and friendly. That is the good news...the rest was just strange! We had their top choice of rooms - fifth floor - a delux with fireplace. Room layout was awkward. Bathroom was...

I prefer boutique hotels and decided to try the White Swan. What a great find. The decor is fun and the location is great (close to Union and Chinatown/North Beach but away from the hustle and bustle of those areas). However, what makes this hotel outstanding is the warmth and friendliness of the staff. Love the amenities like breakfast and...

We stayed twice at this hotel in February and March of 2017. The first stay we stayed for 4 nights and got a room at the back of the hotel. The room was nice and look exactly as the pictures. The second stay was not so good. The room was fine but we got a room at the front of...

What a curious find! The staff is amazingly friendly and helpful and the added touches are great - free water if you want, breakfast, coffee/tea and freshly-baked cookies all day and the day I left vegetable crudite and chocolate peanut butter bars! Definitely more like a bed and breakfast then a hotel - no AC, but fireplaces in each room...

Loved the breakfast and found staff so helpful! They surprised us with sparkling wine to celebrate a birthday and were so impressed with the size and comfort of our room. Excellent value, we will definitely have return.

Stayed here when the conference hotel was sold out. My boss found it and liked the fact that it came with breakfast. Rooms were large. Fireplace was a cool bonus. Elevator was a novelty; only rode it once. Daniel, who checked me in was courteous and informative of all the amenities. I think it was Jake who arranged for a...

Recently stayed her for 3 nights and loved it. There was nothing I could fault the hotel for - the check-in was efficient, the staff were helpful and courteous, the bedroom was spacious, clean, the bed comfortable, the breakfast delicious, the parlour was warm, comfortable and relaxing, and the wine & nibbles at 5pm were an added bonus to relax...

We chose this area as we were meeting up with some old friends and taking some vacation time. So we wanted to be in a central place but also someplace homey and cozey. White Swan Inn was a jewel. It's a charming inn in a very good location with many great restaurants and attractions within walking distance. We had the...

Large, romantic room with working gas fireplace and super-comfortable king sized bed. Very friendly and responsive service. Great breakfast in a beautiful room. Valet parking very convenient for in & out, but costs $45/day. Just a few blocks from Union Square.
