We stayed here for 5 nights in October. The service offered by the hotel is excellent, coffee, tea,cookies and apples available in the lobby 24 hrs ! Location is terrific, you can catch the cable car outside and its also within walking distance of Chinatown and Little Italy. On arrival we were given a room on 5th floor but having read reviews about traffic noise etc. we asked to be moved to a higher floor which was done next morning and were given a lovely room on 13th floor (room 1300) which was quite big and had a fridge which was a bonus. Would certainly recommend this hotel and if back in SF would stay here again

Room Tip: Ask for room on higher floor to front of hotel

Great central situation as well as being comfortable, welcoming and giving consistently good service. We had the genuine impression that the staff cared and this hotel played a large part in making our stay in San Francisco so very enjoyable.

This hotel was clean, convenient, and hospitable. Since the goal of our trip was to see and do as much as possible we didn't want to spend much on accommodations but still be in a lively, accessible location...this hotel definitely helped us achieve our goal and was a pleasant experience! The room was a bit small and warm in the evenings but nothing that couldn't be overcome with some resourceful baggage placement, an open window, and ceiling fan on high. We would definitely recommend and return to this hotel!

I stayed at the Chancellor hotel while attending a convention at the Moscone Center over the weekend. The hotel is located just off Union Square so there is plenty to see and do right out the door. Our room was comfortable, but if you want a good view be sure to request it. Noise is an issue being that the Hotel is so close to the square, but I appreciated the various options that they offered to alleviate it if necessary (such as earplugs or a white noise generator). The only down side of our stay was that there was no internet access in our room because the network signal was too weak. We had to go to the lobby to get online. Besides the comfort and amenities, I was very impressed with the staff. The service from the moment we drove up to the time we checked out was top notch. Every employee was friendly and extremely helpful without being overbearing. Also, for being in the middle of S.F. the price was very affordable. I would definitely look into staying at this hotel again.

Room Tip: The higher you are the less noisy it is and be sure to request a room with a view of the square if y...

Stayed in room 1507 for four nights during October 2012. Silent and cozy room sized just for two. Clean and well maintained. No frills. Nice bathroom. Internet was a problem with very weak wireless signal. Nice staff. Perfect location for every activity. Easy to get from the airport. Very convenient at a fair price.

Reliable, friendly, great location and pricing. We have been staying here for more then 10 years
and have enjoyed the friendly staff tremendously. They have added a refrigerator to the higher floors for convenience. Perks like free newspaper, cookies, apples, coffee, tea comes in well appreciated in this day and age when money is tight.

Room Tip: If you like a room, ask for it the next time.
