The good: Half block from Union Square. We could see the Christmas Tree from our window. The room was smallish, but more than adequate for the two of us, and who goes to Union Square to sit in a hotel room? Everything was super clean. Free WiFi was strong and secure. We did the self-parking. It was a short half-block...

The Chancellor Hotel is in a perfect location at Union Square for many things. Major shopping stores are right there, it is on the cable car line to Fishermans Wharf, train line (BART) is two books away. It is not to far from Chinatown (we walked it) and the Italian quarter so there are some nice restaurants there to chose...

Fantastic mattress on a King bed, upholstered chairs, desk with free WIFI, Chest, two end tables, great clock, TV, large walk in...

My wife and I were here on our first trip to San Francisco and can not rate this place highly enough. We arrived just after 11 and our room was ready and available (perfect after being on a plane for 19hrs!) the beds are super comfy and the pillows are fantastic. They even have a pillow menu where you have...

Lovely room, super nice staff, quiet place. Enjoyed the wine hour very much. It missed 5 stars because the bed isn't a pillow top - kinda hard - and we missed having breakfast, even a simple one. When one wants to hang out while on vacation its tough to run out for a bite when one is still clad in...

My husband and I stayed in this hotel for 4 nights as part of a tour of some states in the west. It's in a brilliant location - right on Union Square, and for the price it can't be beat. Only small downside was the street noise but being right in the heart of the action it can't be helped,...

This is my favorite boutique hotel in San Francisco: location is ideal, great for on foot and on public transit, eateries, access to museums and galleries for us non-shoppers, and the shopping variety - upscale to bargains. Rooms are decent sized, well maintained, great beds and bedding, and at a price that makes me come back every chance I can.

Near Union Square, this Hotel is an excellent point to start visiting San Francisco.You can go on walk to SFMOMA, to take the tram to Fishermen's Wharf or to have a walk around Market Ave. I recommend you strongly.

Great hotel at a good price. Rooms are clean and seem to be recently updated. Staff was great. Your only half a block away from union square. And cable car has a stop right in front of hotel. Definitely will love to stay there again.
