Chancellor hotel - taxes and fees?

Hi all

Looking at booking this hotel through Expedia and it says the price doesn't include taxes and service fees, how much are these and what are they for? Is it compulsory?

Taxes are compulsory for all hotels. They vary between cities.

San Francisco hotel taxes are around 15-1/2 percent. We stay at the Chancellor often and there are no extra "fees". I think this is a generic statement because some hotels do charge extra fees, such as a "resort fee" (whatever that includes.) Not to worry.

To slightly clarify Puter....the Chancellor does have an extra fee. It's for parking a car on an adjacent street about a block away.

True, but most downtown San Francisco hotels charge extra for parking. It is not a "hotel" fee, per se, but considered separate from the lodging. Occasionally they offer a special rate called a "parking package" which includes it.

Many people avoid this fee by not renting a car while staying in the city, or by turning in a rental car when they arrive, so it is not exactly a "compulsory" fee.

I am surprised that Expedia doesn't give you a final total price including taxes!

I'd try to book it on the hotel site to get a better idea of the real cost.

Also be aware that we have a 8.75% sales tax which is added on TO the sticker price you see in the stores.

So that $10 T-shirt will actually cost you $10.88, unless you buy if off a truck on the street.

It also applies to non-food items in the grocery, like toiletries.
