With a crackling fireplace in all 26 guestrooms and suites, the White Swan Inn is a romantic small hotel in the Nob Hill/Union Square area. The White Swan Inn is a visually stunning tribute to the intimate hotels of London. Dark wood paneling, rich floral carpets, comfortable furniture and enchanting English art and collectables set the tone. All guests enjoy a generous breakfast buffet and evening wine and hors d'oeuvres served fireside in the parlor. You can also check out our sister hotel, Petite Auberge, just 20 feet away.

Union Square
Originally home to rallies supporting the Union Army in the Civil War, this grand square has become the city's premier shopping and entertainment district containing the largest number of upscale department stores, chic boutiques, art galleries and theatres in the city. It's a large open area where tourists and locals gather, watch cable cars and crowds go by, enjoy a snack, or plan their day of shopping and sightseeing, If feeling the pulsating energy of the city is on your agenda, Union Square is the place to soak it in.

My friends and I stayed at this Inn overnight in December. It is a delightful place, at a great location. We walked to Union Square and Grace Cathedral. The atmosphere is friendly. We loved the old school elevator but most of all our rooms were amazing. Big, roomy rooms with a

Does this hotel have parking? How much is it? Thank you.
Yes they will valet park for you, we did this for the 3 nights we stayed. No issues at all. When you book directly with the hotel there is an option to add the cost of parking.

Does this hotel have air conditioning?
Can confirm - no A/C. Mostly not a problem in SF, but it may also be useful to no that there are no screens, either.
