Nice hotel right by Union Square

Pros: The staff,
Cons: The bathrooms could be made bigger. If they got rid of the walk-in cub board that would make it larger .Then have a free standing wardrobe instead.
Location: The location is great, Union square on the corner, the tram stopping out side hotel .
The Chancellor hotel is a very friendly place, slightly dated,but the room was clean and comfortable. No coffee or tea making kettle in room ,but you can go to reception and help yourself to the coffee, tea and biscuits there,

A clean and comfortable hotel with an authentic feel. The room was quiet and we slept well. We were on the 6th floor and had no view which wasn’t an issue for us. If a view is important to you then I recommend you contact the hotel to request this, Free coffee, tea, cookies and fruit was available daily at reception which was a nice touch. The hotel is in a superb location with the cable car stop opposite and Union Square shops on our doorstep. It was also very competitively priced compared to other hotels in the area. I wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again or recommend to others.

Very central. Our room overlooked Union Square

Pros: Location, location and location.
Cons: We found it a bit tricky to operate the chains for the ceiling fan (probably not the hotel's fault!).
Location: Close to most things and to public transport for going further afield.
We chose this hotel because of its location and the reasonable (by San Fran standards) rates. We really enjoyed our stay. Staff were friendly, efficient and helpful. Famous cable car ran by, straight under our window! Breakfast was not included but was as reasonably priced as any of the nearby diners.

Great location shame about the heat

This hotel is without a doubt a Gem close to union square and you can walk outside and see the world famous cable cars on the door step. Unfortunately the rooms aren't air conditioned and we were in town when they had a heatwave which meant a very uncomfortable sleep for the 4 nights. Hotel offers free cookies and hot drinks throughout the day.
