Friendly helpful staff
Average, but good to have freshly cooked eggs.
Noisy and small bar area.
Although the hotel is over 100 years old, it is cozy and has a very pleasant atmosphere. The rooms are small but also cozy. There is also a small fridge in the room. The hotel has a great location on Powel Street. Union Square can be seen from the window, just a few meters away. Directly around the hotel there are two lines of the legendary Cable Car to the port. Market street is also just a few minutes walk (on the cable car I recommend not to go to the final on Market street, but at one of the stops). About 100 meters above the hotel is the Walgreens market, open 24 hours a day. It is also possible to buy tickets for public transport at the cash desk. 3-day for $34, 4-day for about $43, includes cable car. I highly recommend. Next Walgreens is about 5 minutes walk down to Market street, where they sell alcohol. But only up to 10p.m. The lobby is equipped with a seating area and free water and coffee. There is also a small bar and mixed drinks. My tip: If you have a lower floor and view of the street, buy wine, cheese, salami and olives, turn the chairs and just watch the street. There are a lot of remarkable and strange people, we had a lot of fun.
In the evening there was no open restaurant, only a bar. Nearby, however, was an excellent steakhouse at great prices. Another possibility is the aforementioned observation of the street with a glass of wine and some treats.
Very well located Coffee and cookies in the lobby
Rooms were hot,very hard to sleep Bar was tiny
Built for the Panama Pacific International Exposition of 1915, San Francisco Hotels’ Chancellor Hotel on Union Square stood as the tallest building in the city. With the memory of the great earthquake of 1906 still fresh, the original contractor went broke designing the hotel to withstand even the strongest quakes. When Isador Rosenberg swooped in and saved it from abandonment, the hotel was turned into a family-owned and operated business and a staple of Union Square.
The Chancellor Hotel features 137 luxurious and historic rooms and two suites. Contemporary decor and lavish furnishings provide ample comfort and are paired with a 32” flat-screen TV, free HBO, mini-fridge, in-room safe, and an over-sized bathtub. Each boutique room is sized to fit two people comfortably and is cooled by San Francisco’s fresh air and a ceiling fan.
Hotel guests will wake up to a multi-station American Breakfast Buffet stocked with all one could want in the morning. Eggs, bacon, sausage, bread and pastries, and a pancake maker are filling fare before trekking out to explore sunny San Francisco.
Travelers are steps away from San Francisco’s Union Square and the district’s renowned shops, eateries, art galleries, nightclubs, and lounges. Historic sites like Alcatraz Island and the Golden Gate Bridge are within reach, as is the city’s cable car system, Chinatown, North Beach, and Yerba Buena Gardens.
A historic staple of Union Square, The Chancellor Hotel is an iconic piece of San Francisco that provides guests with maximum comfort and convenience.
