The White Swan Inn is a nice bed and breakfast that is convenient to the San Francisco tourist areas. This time of year is a very good time to visit, temperatures in the 60's. The reason I mention this is that we opened the windows every day we were here to air the room, and cool the room down. Did not use the fireplace; it was really too warm for it. The elevator is old and even though it works,I didn't like riding in it, and would take the stairs instead. The rooms were a nice size, as were the bathrooms. The food at breakfast was wonderful! And we loved the snacks and the cookies. The one thing I would suggest at breakfast is to have a designated place to put dirty dishes and used glassware/coffee cups.
The reason why the hotel is not ranked 5 stars is because the room we stayed in had a few too many problems. First, the light bulbs in 1 of the lamps was burned out, and shade was not repaired when we checked in. second, the drawer handles were missing on one of the chest of drawers the first day, and third, the mattress sagged in the middle.
However, I would recommend this hotel to others, and it was good enough that we would stay here again if we come back to this city for a visit.
