Nice room - good service - good location.
This was our last 4 nights as part of a round tip in Canada and US. Very nice with the complimentary afternoon reception with wine and hors d'oevres, where you can meet the other guests.

We had so much fun staying at this hotel which is more of a bed and breakfast. Everyone was so nice to us and the breakfast was great. The soda bread was beyond delicious! We asked for few slices to take to our daughter as part of a housewarming gift. They wrapped up a whole loaf and tied it with ribbon and a nice note. We also took advantage of the wine and snacks in the late afternoon and met so many lovely fellow guests. It was one of those rare warm & friendly places. Oh yes, the room was very nice and comfortable.

We made a stay of 3 days there as part of a round trip with family on the West coast. We stayed in Abbey suite. It was great, confortable, cosy and staff were very helpful. We'll have to come back! Thank you!

The room, the location, the staff, the little extras that make staying someplace special- all of those are here at the White Swan Inn. My husband loved the plush king size bed. I loved how the room gave us space to relax as well as simply stay. The breakfast buffet and the afternoon wine are fabulous. Great location and so many nice places to eat are within an easy walk. Wear your most comfortable shoes though, the hills of SF require balance and comfort.

Really great place centrally located. Full breakfast included, wine in the afternoon. Very clean, hospitable and the rooms were very clean. Private garage service that you pay for but well worth it because of the parking problem in san Fran

this hotel is more like an upscale bed and and breakfast. From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty. The man who assisted us with our luggage (Andy) provided us with many tips on restaurants, public transportation, and places to visit. Everyone at the front desk assisted us many times of the day and night. Our room was very large with a fireplace,and five windows looking out onto a courtyard with a beautiful statue. The staff treated more like family then guests. The breakfast food was exceptional with different choices each of the four mornings we were there. There was coffee,tea, fresh fruit and cookies available around the clock in the dining room. The daily wine and cheese reception from five to six thirty gave us an opportunity to meet fellow guests. We could not have enjoyed ourselves any more.

My syster and I liked every minute in the Hotel.
A very good location, verry warm atmosphere.
The staff was very nice and dedicated to the service, the food including the wine & appetizer, free coofee and tea 24 hours a day.
We just arrived and were invited to breakfast.
Will come back and send friends and Familie.
