The Chancellor Hotel is located in the Union Square neighbourhood, which means guests are close to a shopping district that includes a convenient Walgreens, and a few blocks from the start/end point of the cable car. This is useful since lining up for the cable car at 7am is the best way to avoid the massive line up of tourists that form all day.
Initially, I was not impressed with our room. Our window faced the main street where the cable cars run, so ear plugs were provided in our room. The ear plugs also proved useful for blocking out the sounds of the TV next door. The room itself was quite small, and obviously still had the original plaster walls.
However, the hotel grew on me. The room was clean, as was the bed, which was comfortable. There was an empty mini fridge where we could store food we had bought from the Walgreens. I enjoyed the pillow menu, in which you can order special pillows like a down or buckwheat pillow, at no extra cost. There were plenty of electrical outlets and USB ports to charge up electronic devices at the desk. Also, they provided complimentary cookies and fruit flavoured water in the lobby.
This hotel is lower priced than others in the neighbourhood, so though their small rooms may look a little run down, they make the effort where it counts, and the result is a comfortable and well-located place to stay.
