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

Open for breakfast and lunch, Luques Restaurant showcases California cuisine, and the sourdough pancakes at breakfast are a San Francisco treat. 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.
