No grand lobby to greet you, just grand hospitality and fresh baked cookies daily. There is always a staff member on site to answer queries and offer suggestions be it where to eat, what to visit and how to get there. The black and white striped awning at 845 Bush Street is a welcome site after a long day of...

Most comfortable bed of our two-week California trip at the White Swan! Fireplace, spacious, wonderful. Charming old boutique hotel with old elevator, dark wood, wonderful breakfasts, great afternoon wine and hors d'ouvres, great for meeting fellow travelers. Kyle at the front desk was most helpful with dining suggestions, and helping us get around the City.
