Fabulous 8.8 From 1,148 reviews

Good 6.0
Great location, building didn't wow me.
In downtown SF, i don't know if there's a better area to base your excursions out of than Union Square. It's a super accessible location and compared to some of the other options in that area, was much cheaper, however i feel the other hotels are also much nicer/higher quality (4-5 stars), so you do get what you pay for. I loved being able to hope on or off the iconic SF cable car right in front of the hotel, and the proximity to shopping and restaurants that Chancellor Hotel offers is fantastic. Their service and the overall cleanliness of the hotel were also good. The downside - it is an old building (i learned it was once the tallest building in San Francisco when it was built), and accordingly doesn't have AC. We stayed there mid-august and the weather was upper teens/low 20's C (high 60's low 70's F) and we needed to run the ceiling fan and the small portable fan constantly. Even so, i found it hot at night. The room was pretty small; we had to actually move the chairs and end table about 10" off the wall to be able to even close the curtains at night. that really crammed up the room. The bathroom was also an older bathroom as was most of the decor. It was functional, but nothing "wowed" me. Would be nice if there were some creature comforts. Also, one of the bedside tables had a lamp on it, but no outlet to plug it into, so it was there for just decoration. Huh? I would stay here again if i was in a pinch, but next time will try somewhere new i think.

Older boutique hotel in great location, close to everything by public transit. Rates compared to other San Fran rates was reasonable. Rooms small but spotlessly clean. Very quiet. Staff totally helpful. A small issue with internet connection.

Central location!
Very central location!! The hotel does not have AC which normally isnt an issue for San Fran, but I was there during a heat wave. It was warm. The staff were ok, but not as friendly as I've seen at other hotels. Overall, great place to stay if looking for a city-central location.

Great people. Very comfortable. Room was comfortable and clean with good staff. Not a lot of the usual amenities such as pool or gym but not what we came for. Would definitely come again!
