We arrived at the Chancellor Hotel around 1pm after a 14hr flight exhausted. We where told our room was not yet available and check in was at 3pm. We then explained our situation and the great lady on reception got a room sorted out for us in around 20mins. Fantastic !!!!!
We caught the BAHT train from airport ( $8.30) to powell street station. It was around a 25min trip and the Chancellor was a slightly inclining 10-15min walk from there.
The rooms as stated prior are a little older, in particular the bathroom but they are in immaculate condition and spotlessly clean. We got a great deal and were more than happy. If i could fault anything it would be the poor water pressure in shower and no bar fridge in room ( seems to be a common thing however in american hotels)
Hotel was well connected to all transport options and the travel agent at hotel sold us a 3day transport card for $21. Great value considering a single trip on trolley which runs right up powell street in front of hotel is around $5+.
Did not eat at hotel restaurant so cannot comment on that but we did eat breakfast next door. There was a line up to get in every morning which is usually telling you something.
Macys shopping was a stones throw away as well us other shopping options like westfields etc.
We really enjoyed our stay
One slightly disappointing thing which is no reflection on hotel is the amount of beggars in San Francisco in particular Union Square. At times in becomes quiet relentless corner to corner etc etc. We are a very well travelled couple and have never seen anything like that !!!
