Chancellor Hotel has a great location in Union Square. Easy access to the BART to get to the airport. Walking distance to most of the major attractions. Bed was comfortable and the staff was really friendly. Would highly recommend to a friend. Can't beat the location and service at this price point.

Central location for nightlife

Posted Jul 22, 2014
Pros: Proximity to nightlife
Cons: Quality of in suite bathrooms is not unclean, but could definitely use an updating...
Location: Only stayed one night to go out on the town, but being next to Union Square there is a lot of shopping and the SF Embarcadero isn't too far off.
Stayed here to go out downtown with some friends from who had never been to the US/California before. Didn't want a hotel that was dumpy and needed something centrally located with easy access to local bars and clubs, without breaking the bank. This hotel had a substantially lower price point than any others nearby and was also close to night life (Rube Skye, Infusion Lounge, The Irish Bank, etc.) so we went with it. Not a disappointing decision, but would NOT recommend staying for long periods of time as the rooms are small, bathrooms are very outdated (room furnishings are not) and there is no air conditioning.

Had an amazing experience at the Chancellor. The staff were extremely accommodating and friendly, and our room was comfortable, quiet, and clean. We requested a room at the back higher up because it's quieter and that's what we got! Centrally located and close to public transit. Will return!

Great hotel, very well placed.

Posted Jul 16, 2014
Loved this hotel. We had a great room (8th floor, quiet side).Bed comfy, enough space (not a lot, but enough), shower and bath, even a cubby room for suitcases and stuff. Great to have free wifi. Very well placed for transport and on Union Square. I would definitely stay here again. Thanks to all staff.

Excellent location for central San Francisco

Posted Jul 13, 2014
Location: very central, excellent location
Chancellor Hotel is situation only a short walk from Union Square, which made it ideal for us as we had booked hop on/off bus tours which departs from there. Staff were very friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Hotel was clean and room was very pleasant - our room had a small room for luggage/clothing which was very handy. Only niggle we had was the fan for bathroom would turn on randomly during night and this was a bit noisy.

Central hotel by Union Square and the cable car.

Posted Jul 11, 2014
Pros: Hearing the cable car bell as it went up Powell Street and being so close to Union Square which we had a view of from our room.
Cons: Nothing!
Location: Use the delightful vintage streetcars on the F line on Market Street to get to Fishermans Wharf as the cable cars are overcrowded and hard to get on.
The hotel was recommended by a friend who'd stayed there. The rooms are small by US standards though the facilities are very good, including an old fashioned umbrella hanging in the closet! There is no (apparent) air conditioning but the extremely quiet ceiling fan kept the room pleasantly cool and we didn't need to open the window at night (we visited in July). Ear plugs are provided but we didn't need them. The bed was very comfortable and there was a choice of pillows too. We only used the concierge once, to book the airport shuttle bus, but he was very helpful. The Chancellor has a small bar and also a breakfast/lunch room which closes around 2pm. There are plenty of eating choices close by so finding somewhere for dinner was not a problem, though we ate mainly at Pier 1 on the Embarcadero or at Fishermans Wharf. The hotel may not have all the bells and whistles of big, modern hotels but its very central position meant we really enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay again.

Excellent hotel in the heat of San Francisco

Posted Jul 11, 2014
We really enjoyed our stay at this boutique hotel. Gray value for a hotel near Union Square. Friendly staff. Free coffee, apples, cookies, water 24 hrs. Parking is cheap at $30 a night about a block away. Rooms are small but very comfortable. Definitely recommend.
