My Husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon a couple of weeks ago and we both really enjoyed our stay. The hotel knew it was our honeymoon and gave us a lovely room with a view of union square along with sparkling wine and a photo frame. The room we had was very spacious - the closet was bigger...

Excellent location close to Union square. On the last night we found a cockroach in our barhroom. When telling the hotel staff they just shrugged so they're probably not uncommon. Parking the car cost ca $30/day.

I've stayed at Chancellor twice now and both times have been excellent. The rooms are clean and tidy, bathrooms are reasonably spacious, beds are comfortable and it's in a great location. I'll be staying again when I return to San Francisco. The staff at this hotel are excellent and go out of their way to assist you.

We stayed at the Chencellor in March - what a great boutique hotel. All the staff were friendly and helpful. Room had a peak of Union Square. Small, but it had everything we needed (very large walk in closet if you need that!). Reminded us of hotels in Europe. You can walk or cable car to everything. Loved the location.... More

I definitely think the best description to give for someone to get an idea of what the hotel is like it to say it is like the hotels in Europe. Thank you for appreciating us! More

My wife and I stayed at the Chancellor Hotel for 5 nights in mid-April and were extremely pleased with our accommodations choice! I did a lot of searching around online and prior to booking and the Chancellor turned out to be the best value for wanting to stay near Union Square in the "heart of San Francisco" - in fact,...

Nice hotel in a perfect central location. Rooms are small but hey, if your spending all your time in the room, your missing the most awesome city! Nice touch having the free snacks in the lobby and the little bar area is cool too. Brilliant location for the shopping and also on the main tram line to the Wharf area.... More

Yes, the rooms are small and well said! I look at our rooms like a cruise ship cabin...Small but efficient to sleep and change in, but everything you want to do is out and about so your not spending any time there anyways. More

Rooms aren't huge, but perfect place to lay your head after a day of sightseeing and shopping. Coffee and cookies in the lobby are a nice touch. Staff at the front desk were very helpful, assisting us with recommendations for wineries to visit and routes to drive around the Napa Valley Breakfast in the hotel is ok, I would skip... More
