Like many other people, we struggled to find accommodation in San Francisco at a price that wasn't astronomical. Let's face it, the White Swan Inn is still blooming expensive, but it's a darn sight cheaper than most other alternatives. It's a sweet hotel in a good location, near downtown and Chinatown. The rooms were a little old-fashioned but quite fun in their resolutely 'English' decor, and we absolutely loved the English collectibles and memorabilia on display in the dining room. Breakfast was edible, but not memorable. For us, the real gem in this hotel is their staff. Everyone was friendly and courteous, but the real jewel in the crown was Brendan. He fixed us up with dinner reservations and a taxi, and was on hand to provide helpful tips and advice on anything we wanted. It felt like nothing was too much trouble. I wouldn't rush back for the hotel experience, but the quality of service was truly impeccable.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- With a crackling fireplace in all 26 guestrooms and suites, the White Swan Inn is a romantic small hotel in the Nob Hill/Union Square area. The White Swan Inn is a visually stunning tribute to the intimate hotels of London. Dark wood paneling, rich floral carpets, comfortable furniture and enchanting English art and collectables set the tone. All guests enjoy a generous breakfast buffet and evening wine and hors d'oeuvres served fireside in the parlor. You can also check out our sister hotel, Petite Auberge, just 20 feet away. ... more less
