My husband and I ended our California Adventure in the City by the Bay with a four night stay at the White Swan Inn. This quaint boutique hotel offers an excelled location that is convenient to the famous cable cars and public transit. Before leaving home, we purchased the City Pass which was an excellent deal giving us unlimited transportation and entrance into many of the city museums including Alcatraz. The room was quite large for a big city and well-appointed. Our room was on the 4th floor and we did not experience any significant street noise. We certainly enjoyed the fireplace and having a mini refrigerator stocked with free soda and water was a nice touch! The room includes cable TV, WIFI, and a coffee maker. The bathroom is older and probably could use some updating. The elevator is vintage and contributes to the old world charm of the hotel, There is no air conditioning and although it was warm in SF, the night temperatures were cool so it was not problematic. The staff was friendly and welcoming. The breakfast offering were standard buffet items but plentiful and satisfying. The evening wine and snacks provided an opportunity to meet many diverse individuals from the USA allowing us to enjoy stimulating conversation about a variety of topics. The decor is decidedly English country which is warming and home-like. I feel that the hotel was reasonably priced and with the breakfast and wine reception a pretty good deal.
