One part Carnaby Street circa 1960, one part Cotswolds, White Swan Inn is a heady little homage to all-things mod-meets-English Country glam. But this time around, in the heart of San Francisco’s Nob Hill. Come see why it’s better to do the City By The Bay with little bit of Brit panache thrown in. And hang your hat in a boutique hotel that truly breaks the mold.

Free WiFi is just the start. We’ve make an art out of taking care of our guests. Case-and-point, our daily complimentary full breakfast buffet, where seconds are encouraged. Fireside evening wine hours with finger foods and local pours. And fresh-baked afternoon cookies – the perfect fuel for a little urban exploration.


From the in-room fireplaces and soaking tubs (not to mention the perfectly plush, pillowtop beds) to their cheeky flourishes and flair, there’s just something about our 26 rooms that call to that lover of the unique in us all. Discover what happens when you throw a little color in.


The Cliffs Notes: we like to feed our guests….a lot. Wake up to quiches, blueberry-and-ginger scones, and more. Fill your afternoons with our daily rotating selection of cookies (called biscuits, because we’re oh so Brit). And kick-start your evening with our cream cheese puffs accompanied by glasses of Red or White. Plus, for something a little more substantial, enjoy choice seating or room service from Del Popolo, one of San Francisco's best restaurants that's just next door. Trust us: it all tastes even better than it sounds.

Gather Better

As they say, the more the merrier. And our meeting room and series of intimate spaces are the perfect spots for small gatherings. Take a few rooms, an entire floor, or reserve the full spread. However your small group comes, we're more than happy to accommodate.


Our doors are open to anyone looking for an out-of-the-ordinary place to call home in San Francisco. And with the keys come full run of our Kingdom. Lounge back in one of our Christian Lacroix-upholstered chairs as you take tea and biscuits with new friends. Join one of our monthly talks in our parlor. Enjoy your breakfast on our outdoor patio. Or try out a fireside yoga class in our library (hot yoga never felt so good). Welcome home.
