The White Swan Inn feels like a little piece of England set on a picturesque street in Nob Hill. A crackling fireplace welcomes guests to the lobby and adjacent library with comfortable chairs and sofas, opening to a small garden. The property mixes cabbage rose wallpaper, plaid carpeting and Edwardian furniture in a uniquely British fashion that is cozy and reminiscent of an old country home.

Each of the property’s 26 rooms has a fireplace, a refrigerator with complimentary beverages and a large bathroom with bathrobes. A generous breakfast buffet is presented each morning and is included in room rates. Guests are also treated to the afternoon hors d'oeuvres served with wine as well as homemade cookies and tea available in the lounge throughout the day. Complimentary access to the hotel’s small business room is also included, and guests can obtain discounted passes to use nearby fitness facilities.

The Powell Street cable car stops less than two blocks from the hotel, making it easy to reach the city’s most popular landmarks. Chinatown and Union Square are within a 15-minute walk of the property.
