About Chancellor Hotel on Union Square, San Francisco

Classic Union Square hotel steps from cable-car stop

Near Union Square shops

Opened in 1914, Chancellor Hotel on Union Square is a 1-minute walk from Union Square's plaza, which is surrounded by shops, restaurants, and art galleries. It's also a 1-minute walk from a stop on the Powell-Mason cable-car line, which runs past North Beach's Italian eateries.

Lombard Street, Alcatraz

You can ride the cable car to famously crooked Lombard Street and Fisherman's Wharf, home to attractions like Ripley’s Believe It or Not! and Ghirardelli Square. From Pier 33, ferries depart for tours of the infamous Alcatraz prison, with dazzling city and bay views en route.

Sourdough pancakes

While this historic, family-run hotel doesn't have its own fitness center, you'll enjoy free access to a health club around the block.

Pillow menu, free WiFi

Once the city's tallest building, the hotel offers 137 compact yet comfortable guestrooms with free WiFi and something special: a choice of 12 different pillows. LCD TVs come with premium channels, mini-fridges are handy for stashing snacks, and bathrooms have deep soaking tubs.

Very Good8.0
Nice hotel, friendly bar, convenient location. No A.C., so needed to keep Windows open at night, thus a little street noise.

Good6.0
Hotel was fine...service not so much
Hotel was OK but there was a mix up with my room so at 11 PM another guest was trying to get into my room. At 1130 the front desk called to apologize. At midnight they called again to say they did not have a record of me...I'm tired today.

Fun Wknd in Union Square
Stayed over a weekend at the end of business trip. Staff was friendly and helpful, not pushy. Room was small as to be expected in an old building, but comfortable. Bed was extremely comfortable. Bathroom is small, but well laid out w/an extra shelf and shower had very good water pressure. I took the BART from SFO for under $10 and only had to walk 3 blocks to the hotel. It was very easy to hop on a cable car (3 blocks to end of line or just at the corner outside of the hotel) or hop on a bus to get around the city or even to walk to Chinatown/Financial District was very easy. There are patrols in the area to assist w/the homeless issues in San Fran, but I had no issues. It's a great location for getting around and exploring. I will stay here again!
