Built for the Panama Pacific International Exposition of 1915, San Francisco Hotels’ Chancellor Hotel on Union Square stood as the tallest building in the city. With the memory of the great earthquake of 1906 still fresh, the original contractor went broke designing the hotel to withstand even the strongest quakes. When Isador Rosenberg swooped in and saved it from abandonment, the hotel was turned into a family-owned and operated business and a staple of Union Square.

The Chancellor Hotel features 137 luxurious and historic rooms and two suites. Contemporary decor and lavish furnishings provide ample comfort and are paired with a 32” flat-screen TV, free HBO, mini-fridge, in-room safe, and an over-sized bathtub. Each boutique room is sized to fit two people comfortably and is cooled by San Francisco’s fresh air and a ceiling fan.

Hotel guests will wake up to a multi-station American Breakfast Buffet stocked with all one could want in the morning. Eggs, bacon, sausage, bread and pastries, and a pancake maker are filling fare before trekking out to explore sunny San Francisco.

Travelers are steps away from San Francisco’s Union Square and the district’s renowned shops, eateries, art galleries, nightclubs, and lounges. Historic sites like Alcatraz Island and the Golden Gate Bridge are within reach, as is the city’s cable car system, Chinatown, North Beach, and Yerba Buena Gardens.

A historic staple of Union Square, The Chancellor Hotel is an iconic piece of San Francisco that provides guests with maximum comfort and convenience.

Newest first
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:While it was a fairly tight room the amazing comfort of the beds made that small bathroom insignificant. There was also a great deep tub that was just what I needed after lots of walking.
Cons:Tight bathroom
8.2 Very good
Pros:Perfect place to stay for all the important sights Trolley stops in front and goes right down to Fisherman's Wharf for great food and Terrific views, Lori's Diner is a few doors away with great food, Walgreens on the corner.
7.7 Good
Pros:Awesome location, close to everything with the tram stop right outside and shopping only minutes away.
Cons:Rooms were dated and they get hot, no aircon either
9.4 Wonderful
Pros:It was a very nice family hotel with an interesting history. Well located right off Union Square. The hotel staff were all very nice. Though we didn't take advantage of them, the bar and restaurant both seemed nice.
Cons:The weather was cool and the hotel had the boiler running. Our room must have been 80 degrees and no way to shut the heat off. We were on the top floor and the hotel staff offered to move us to a lower (cooler) room. The second floor room was just as warm. The rooms really need local control of temperature.
6.0 Okay
Pros:Staff very nice and professional
Cons:Rooms are just too small especially for price.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Nice historic hotel in a great location. Friendly and informative staff. Room was small but we got one of the rooms on the top floor and the ceiling was about 15 feet high. It made the room seem much larger. There is no A/C in the room but it was comfortable with the ceiling fan and the window open. I liked hearing the sounds of the city in the evening. The city "noise" did quiet down during the night and had no problems sleeping. This hotel was recommended to me by my boss. He stays there every year for a reunion with college friends. I have not problem passing on the recommendation.
5.1 Fair
Pros:Bedroom was clean, furniture appeared recent. Location was reasonably convenient.
Cons:Room was claustrophobic - barely room to walk around bed. Paint was fresh, but clearly covering 100 years of obvious wear. Musty smell. No air conditioning - couldn't get room quite cool/dry enough to be comfortable. Bathroom was dingy, marked up and had seen better days, and it was hard to squeeze into toilet between sink and wall, even then, wedged in by shoulder-level toilet paper dispenser. Plumbing noises from adjacent units were loud. Weirdly shaped closet with mismatched hangars that were falling apart.
8.8 Very good
Pros:The staff was great. They were very friendly and helpful. The location was also fantastic and the noon check out gave us a little additional time to explore the city without worrying about our bags. I would definitely recommend.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Last minute booking. Great price! Pretty extraordinary. Prime location!
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Reasonably priced, friendly and accommodating staff, coffee/tea available 24/7. Great wifi, mini fridge in room. Great water pressure. They updated all the right things.
Cons:Coffee maker/microwave in room would have been an improvement, but not a sticking point. The service at Luques can be slow, but the food is good.
