Considering taking BART from SFO to Chancellor Hotel at 433 Powell Street. If I get off at Powell St stop, am I then walking uphill to hotel? I seem to remember this from a previous trip. Is the stop at the carblecar tournaround????? Thanks. John

Yes, the stop is at the turn around and it is uphill but to the Chancellor it's not a terribly steep walk.

Depends how much luggage you have as to how difficult it will be.

1) Yes the stop is at the turnaround.

2) It's 4.5 blocks of a vague uphill (by SF standards). Some complain that the first 2 blocks of Powell are crowded with pedestrians. But I don't think the "climb" itself is a problem. According to gmaps it's about 1/4 mile and 120' of elevation change (although it doesn't seem that much to me). http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/
