    Very nice & accommodating staff. Large room with double windows to keep out city noise. Wonderful complimentary breakfast included with room. Overall a great hotel! Highly recommend.

    Room decor a bit worn, could use some new carpet & new bathroom tiles.

    The location is perfect for "doing" San Francisco!

    The white curtains in our room definitely needed a wash - it detracted from the room and from the look of the hotel. - I did tell the front desk staff about this.

    The common areas are very comfortable and the fires throughout the Inn are a nice touch.

    The Inn wasn't in the best of decor condition and the rooms were very tired, especially the extremely dirty curtains. The bath towels were also very small and thin and were definitely in need of replacement!Our bed was very noisy - creaking every time one of us turned!

    The room was lovely - very nicely done. The afternoon wine and nibbles was also very nice!

    They didn't put the cushions back on the bed everyday. Small point but would have been nice.

    Fabulous

    The White Swan was decorated in an English style and our room was very big, with it's own fireplace (which in SF in August - 18°c max - was great) and also a kitchenette. The breakfast was good and the small buffet and complimentary wine in the late afternoon was very nice. It's a short walk to Union Square (where all the shops are) and only about 1-2 blocks from the closest cable car stop.

    Excellent Hotel the rooms were much bigger than expected and the soft drinks supplied in room were really appreciated as well as the evening reception, it was a great way to meet other guests and get advice on trips and where to visit during our stay.

    This was a post cruise trip of two days before we went to wine country and we were just charmed by your inn. The breakfast and wine receptions were an extra value for us. Additoinally, we met a really nice couple from Germany and another from England. You certainly made our country look good. Thank You

    Very homely and cosy. Love the large room and the decor, very friendly staff. I would definitely stay here again :-)

    Only thing I would suggest is a kettle in the room and a selection of tea bags for us none coffee drinkers!!

    It was very homey and comfortable. The staff was excellent and always welcoming. Also, the free breakfast, wine hour, cookies, and soda/water in the room was much appreciated. I love that the room had a fire place and we could turn it on at anytime. This place was great! I can't wait to visit again!
