The Chancellor Hotel on Union Square is a charming 137 hotel located in the heart of San Francisco. Since 1914, it is still a classic boutique hotel serving guest who want to be surrounded by world class shopping, restaurants, and theatres at a good value. When you aren't shopping, dining, just step out of our lobby and ride the Powell Street Cable car past Chinatown, over nob hill, and by Lombard Street to Fisherman's Wharf. At Fisherman's Wharf, boats depart for Alcatraz Island, Sausalito, and Tiburon for some great sightseeing. The Business traveler will also find great value in our hotel because of its short walk to the Moscone Convention Center, free local calls, two line phones with data ports and the Chancellor Hotel's Clipper Ship meeting room. Every room, including the two room suites, are decorated in a classic European motif, and contains the amenities that our guests have come to expect. Additionally, the entire is completely non-smoking for your comfort. Wired or WirelesWe have what you need. The Lobby, Bar, Dining room, and Meeting Room have a free Wi-Fi signal available. Luques Restaurant & Bar, located just off the lobby of the hotel, offers breakfast, lunch, and room service. The menu features California Cuisine. The Bar is warm and approachable, featuring specialty cocktails, local draft, bottled beer and a pleasing and diverse wine list emphasizing the best that California has to offer.

Excellent location! Hotel a bit drab...

I visited San Francisco for a romantic getaway with the hubby. The hotel is described as a boutique hotel with lots of character; my opinion, boutique =old and drab. There were no upgrades in the room. The furniture was too large for the room. The bathroom was extremely dated. A waste bin was placed underneath the sink to catch the drippings from the outdated plumbing. The toilet made a weird gurgling sound at night.The green carpeting in the hallway was old and worn. The upside, the staff was friendly and the location was excellent.

Loved it

Booked it cause of all the good reviews. Wasnt expecting much since we were just planning on staying there to sleep and rest. Room was perfect for the two of us, perfect place a block from Union Square and so many things to do walks away. Didnt want to pay for parking or a rent-a-car so we took the muni pretty much everywhere and theres a stop right on the blocl. Would recommend to others and wouldn't mind staying here again if I go to San Francisco.

Good things, Bad things

The location, staff, restaurant and some amenities were first rate. However, the room was cripplingly small and I nearly fell into the bathtub when I opened the room door! The room was very noisy, although this is not completely the hotel's fault, but also the location of the hotel. Overall, the good outweighs the bad at The Chancellor.

Wonderful front desk stack

We arrived at 6 PM and the front desk stack greeted us with warmth and helpfulness. We asked for a quiet room and were accommodated with room 1308. The room was small, but had a unusual feature, a window that opened! There was plenty of hot water and a wonderful bath and shower, comfortable bed and great pillows.

Get up early to ride the cable cars. There will be no lines and the cars are half empty (I mean half full).

Great value and PERFECT location. Cable cars, shopping, diners, fine dining, drinks with views and fun bars are steps away.
