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.

Nice
I would recommend this hotel. The rooms and bathrooms are small and there are some decor choices that show how old this hotel really is, but it is very well-maintained and very clean. The beds are comfortable and you can actually choose the pillow(s) that works best for you from a menu. It is also very quiet inside. They provide free coffee, tea, water and cookies in the lobby and staff was very friendly and efficient. Their parking is actually very reasonable for San Francisco, especially right in the heart of it. The hotel is located directly on Union Square and you can walk to cable cars, Bart, restaurants, shopping....

Hotel that supplies extra touches that I appreciated; filtered water, coffee, cookies/muffins in lobby. Very well situated. Close to Bart yellow line that goes to SFO airport in 30 minutes. Small rooms with large closet, 2 sitting chairs and small table. No air conditioning but ceiling fan does the job.
