Nob Hill meets Notting Hill.

What it's like

White Swan Inn isn't your run-of-the-mill hotel. It's a melting pot of rich history and vibrant style. Its story began when an eccentric aunt with a love for fashion acquired two neighboring inns in the 1950s, one of which was the White Swan Inn. Decades later, the niece of the eccentric aunt, a modern-era model from London, inherited the inn and added splashes of bold prints, vivacious colors, and a flair reminiscent of 1960s Britain. The end result? A hotel that serves as a beacon of cultural fusion and architectural marvel.

Independent spirit

An ode to creature comforts.

Small touches

Each of the inn's 26 guestrooms is a symphony of comfort and eccentricity. In-room fireplaces ensure warm, cozy evenings while soaking bathtubs promise relaxation. The plush pillowtop beds practically beckon guests into their embrace. Moreover, vibrant hues and cheeky decorative elements ensure that each room leaves a lasting impression, resonating with the inn's commitment to crafting unique experiences for every visitor.

Eat and drink

Mornings begin with delectable pastries and luscious fruits. Evenings promise delightful gatherings over local wines and tantalizing nibbles. However, the pièce de résistance is the inn's affiliation with Del Popolo, a celebrated San Francisco restaurant renowned for its Neapolitan pizzas and fresh ingredients. This partnership offers guests an exclusive experience with special pricing. At White Swan Inn, guests are ensured to be pampered with delightful flavors and heartwarming experiences.
