Hotel is great with a vintage charm not found at most "vintage" or "boutique" hotels. Old school elevator with the pull gate was dope. Staff is very friendly and accommodating; although, not the most organized upon our arrival. Waited at the front desk for 40 minutes because they thought they gave our room keys to a different party that they could not find. They said they would make it up to us for the wait, but never did. We had a lot of luggage, and they offered to help, which was appreciated. What was not appreciated was when they scraped my vintage louis vuitton duffle against the locking mechanism of the manual gate of the elevator. Room was charming. Gas fireplace was great and kept the room very warm. The nibbles that accompany the wine for wine hour should be improved, the pepper jack cheese was roughly cut with a serrated knife and was not appealing. Overall it was mostly nice experience.

Great location, quaint boutique hotel. Elevator is rather unique. Staff always pleasant and helpful. Zachery was especially informative.

It was thoroughly charming and we would definitely stay there again! The extra perks of breakfast and afternoon wine were fabulous.

Great relaxed bed and breakfast hotel. No loud noises couldn't hear a thing in my room my entire 5 night stay. Staff was excellent the amenities and price could not be beat. Also the location is right on downtown sf next to many transit stations.

Everything was great except for the fact that there's no AC in the rooms. It would also be a bit better if the omelet in the morning was plain

The White Swan Inn was a wonderful find in the Nob Hill area of SF! For several years, I’ve met friends and we have stayed at the Golden Gate Hotel, which is a lovely B&B hotel. This year it was unfortunately booked when we wanted to stay, so I looked on Orbitz and found White Swan Inn—what a lovely B&B hotel and experience! The check-in staff were friendly and accommodating. The hotel is centrally located, and it was an easy walk to Union Square, Chinatown, and Grace Cathedral. The old-fashioned elevator was delightful, the room was perfect for our needs (fit 3 easily with a King and pull-out sofa bed). We even had a fireplace in the room! The breakfast in the mornings was delicious and gave lots of choices. Coffee and tea were available throughout the day/evening, and there was even a jar of homemade cookies to greet us each afternoon. The decor was cute with the photos of swans throughout and the ‘60’s style in the breakfast alcove. What a wonderful experience—definitely worth repeating!

We loved out stay at the White Swan! The food was very good and the staff was wonderful.

A bit concerned when I entered the hotel. Plastic over stairs was a bit disconcerting. Friendly staff. Had trouble figuring out how to lite fireplace, no instructions in room but staff was helpful. TV controller batteries were at end of life and it took about 45 minutes to get it rectified. The staff is extremely friendly and our bed was comfortable and peaceful. Nice breakfast but a few gluten-free additions would be nice because my husband could have yougurt andfruit and that was about it. I would return for the Housman Lin, he was phenomenal and a ball of sunshine! Best part of the hotel.

This was a very cozy hotel with great service and the rooms were large. I would definitely stay here again.

Great place and location. Much nicer than the chain hotels

From the greeting at the door by the bellman, Leon, to the departure with Leon putting water bottles in our car for our trip to the airport...the customer service was excellent. Start to finish...the service was excellent. Don't you want to be treated like someone important? This is the Place!!

Fabulous staff, rooms are large, fireplace, free in room waters and sodas, full Delicious breakfast and evening wine reception. Bed was a little soft. Great location. Will stay there anytime I come to SF in the future.

Very good value for the money, the breakfast was excellent and the staff was attentive and friendly.

We came to SF to celebrate our anniversary. I picked out the hotel online and I was concerned that It might be too feminine for my husband's liking. But he loved it and told me over and over how fabulous it was. Our room was very spacious with a fireplace on one end and four poster bed on the other. Beautiful comfy bedding and mattress. Spectacular. It had a refer in the room. Only thing missing was a microwave. Staff was everywhere and so attentive. They made us feel cherished like a loving family member. Breakfast buffet was great, and even an evening wine and appetizer was included. Go - you'll be happy!
