Beautiful 100 year old Hotel that offers first class service from all Staff. Rooms are small and tiny bathrooms reflecting the period the Hotel was built. I was on level 2 facing Powell Street which was extremely loud with traffic noise and people screaming but it is the middle of a very busy city. Not much fun after a 17 hour International flight. The fantastic Staff made up for the lack of sleep.

Great location

A great character hotel. The staff were very accommodating with nice touches like having fruit and biscuits at the front counter. The Chancellor was the last of 9 hotels we had stayed in 4 weeks and easily the best location with the cable car stopping outside and a very short walk to good shopping in Union Square. Happy Kiwis

Character hotel in great location

Pros: Location and character
Excellent location for shopping and transport, loved the quaintness of it and it’s history. Close to plenty of good restaurants. Would definitely stay there again. Rooms are a little small but its SF but still very comfortable.

Good value and location

Close to Union Square and whilst building and decor somewhat dated, everything is kept clean and functional. Breakfast looked basic but plenty of nearby alternatives. Price competitive.

Great location, staff pleasant, small rooms, chipped dishes in restaurant could be replaced, coffee is horrible- a good barista espresso would improve.
