We were recommended the White Swan Inn from a family member and it did not disappoint. The room was large and lovely. Breakfast was very nice. There was tea, coffee and hot chocolate available all day as well as free bottled water and soft drink in our room. There was also freshly baked cookies each day, apple cider and don't forget happy hour each afternoon. The staff were fantastic and always happy and helpful. Thank you for making our stay in San Francisco so enjoyable.
Nothing. Everything was wonderful.
nicely decorated room with fireplace big size according to downtown standard, if not conference days, the room rate is reasonable
the bed is too high and too soft
Great price, free room upgrade to a super spacious suite. Charm. Super nice staff.
Street noise easily penetrates the original single pane windows
An incredible retreat in a very busy area of San Francisco. I had some doubts given the photos that I would feel a bit overwhelmed by the floral wallpaper, but the decor was completely charming, including the new integrated with the old. Very large and comfortable room. Breakfast was great, complimentary drinks in the room incredibly appreciated, fireplace so cozy. I would stay here again and again and again. Care and kindness of the staff was fantastic.
the room was large, comfortable, and clean both in appearance, and smell. the fireplace was an large added bonus.
i would call the neighborhood slightly borderline. they should stock the room with more towels instead of just one per person. i know i could of asked for more - just saying.
The staff is very polite and helpful. Very nice breakfast and wine happy hour in the comfy parlor. Love fireplace in room. Rooms are a nice size. Parking is handled very well by staff and parking garage attendants.
Having to leave!
location and charm
for those who have limited ability to ambulate go else where
cozy and spacious room, traditional interior
Great home-like feel, incl the very pleasant happy hour every evening with comp wine and snacks. As a Hyatt/Hilton road warrior, would take White Swan every time, biz or holiday travel. Met several return visitors, all with same story. Decor eclectic may not suit all tastes, but its pretty well done
Can get some noise transfer from other rooms, but all guests on notice, considerate, so not much of an issue
nice breakfast was included, easy to walk places nearby, cozy, front desk staff very helpful! Price was good!
Very friendly staff. Rooms are comfortable though Old fashioned.
No air conditioning!!
Everything. Exceeded moy expectations. Want to come back and stay again. Can not say enough about my Entire stay and experience. WONDERFUL!8!!!!
It was all good NO NEGATIVES
The attention to the details. Little things like the "bar" that in other hotels is guarded like a treasure,at the White Swan they give you water and refreshments all you need, free cookies and coffee. We had a problem,they helped us even after our check out. Thats a hotel!
No. Can 't think of something. We loved the lovely rooms.
Old style lift, location, friendly helpful staff, jam on toast and tea, complimentary cookies in reception...complimentary drinks in fridge replaced daily
Bath not in best condition only used shower which was great
Comfort of the bed, spacious room, 5 à 7 wine and goûter.
Ambiant music melting with the staff music from the kitchen at breakfast. Noise from the bar across the street and ambulance all night long (hospital nearby)
This hotel is very very good. Value. The breakfast was the best. We did go one night to the happy hour. Fab eats and the wine was very good. I thought that was a very nice touch. Location is ideal.
The hotel was in a great location, just a 10 minute walk from Powell and Market street. The staff was very friendly. The room was very clean and the breakfast was delicious! They had great food. A good variety to suit everyone's taste buds!
I woke up when the visitor in the next door room turned on the shower at 6:30am but I was about to wake up soon anyway. I would still return to the hotel when I go back next year.
A charming small hotel with fascinating décor. Friendly and helpful staff, comfortable rooms with no noise issues. More than adequate breakfast and we loved the afternoon wine and nibbles in the lounge or garden area.
Not being familiar with San Francisco, we were initially surprised at the climb up so close to Union Square. Not really a problem.
Cosy, friendly, nibbles and wine
Dreadful state of bath, rusty, stained
I guess it's a good enough place to stay, for the city. There's no A/C, so don't even think of coming when it's warm weather.
When the drunks spill out onto the street from the bar opposite this hotel, you'll be glad you grabbed a pair of ear plugs from the front desk at check in.
If you're looking for somewhere to stay in San Francisco and want to avoid the usual chains then this is your spot. It's very central, very friendly, clean, excellent wifi and a wonderful wine, tea (coffee) and home made snacks at 5pm where you can meet the other guests (or just sit in the corner and drink). I stayed here on my first trip to San Fran back in the late 80s and have been trying to get a room for years since. I visit San Francisco monthly on business and have done for years, it's alway been booked weeks/months in advance but was thrilled to get a room last week, I wasn't disappointed. Book early!
The piped music in the dinning room & lounge, it wasn't so much the music or the volume just that it was the same tracks over and over and over... again. Come on guys, for a selection of British music we have a hell of a lot more that your selection and believe it or not we have moved on from the Beatles.
Excellent location near Union Square, buses and cable cars. Friendly helpful staff. Free soft drinks in room. Good breakfast. Free wine and interesting and generous snacks in evening.
I loved the place, cozy, well located, nice warm team, willing to help, clean rooms, lots of space, and the valet parking always worked great! I'd love to say it is 100% perfect, but....
Well, the bed matress is really uncomfortable. If you are alone, you may not feel it, but a couple will never sleep well. The matress is extremely soft (in a bad way!), so much that it moulds your body in such a way that you sleep in an awful position the whole night.... it is a shame, because everything is great, but I really couldn't sleep comfortably at all. I really felt like sleeping on the carpet as a solution!
