Great hotel in a fantastic location where everything is easily accessible
Supporting and friendly team, clean room, surprised with possiblility to chose the pillow from list of 8. Close to Union Square. Complimentary tea and coffee 24/7
WiFi access is broken from time to time
Location,,small friendly, complimentary coffee that was good.excellent night sleep, noise canceling windows.
Doorman lacking, cleanliness of immediate outside area, no coffee maker in the room
Centrally located. Comfortable and clean, have everything you need.
Without a doubt, the location of the Chancellor is a strong selling point. Being a few minutes away from Union Square is a plus for the traveler who wants to shop. Don't overlook the value of staff, who were excellent! Service is as good as it gets!
The building is old so you must understand what this means. Our room was air conditioned by an open window (difficult to close) and needed to be heated by a portable heater, which worked fine. The bathroom was tiny and I kicked my knee on the sink climbing out of the shower. No entry is possible if someone is sitting on the toilet - their legs will block the door. And we could hear everything being said in the next room - but they were pretty loud talkers.
No tea and coffee facilities in the room
We liked it all...staff, location, quaint rooms and especially the staff.
Very friendly and helpful staff including a concierge who went the extra mile to arrange an outing for us and provided great local information we used. Perfect location on cable car route. Good value for the area. Super comfy bed and pillows. Pleasant room and quiet for good sleep. Nice breakfast restaurant in the hotel.
Not a ding dang thing.
-perfect location for all direction -really nice room -WiFi worked better than expected after all the comments here...but it wasn't flawless
-the bath was old, but it didn't bother -even on an upper level you could still hear the noise from the street
even tho 50% full got a bad view
You can request a pillow of you choice, real down, magnetic, bath, and knee (6 more) The bathtub is deep and wonderful. Loved the place.
Non valet parking lot difficult to locate.
housekeeping did not change sheets
Location was excellent, right on UNion Square! Free tea, coffee n reception was a nice touch! Products in the bathroom were lovely.
The noise from the street was really loud and the air conditioning was not too easy to use...maybe some instructions in the guest manual would be useful.
We wanted to be close to Union Square and that was a plus.
The rooms were very small and chilly ! I feel the Hotel could use some upgrading it was a little tired !
Nice staff, Nice location (very close to Union Square and cable car/Metro/Bus stop).
Loved the location. The staff were so friendly too from the check in to the cleaning staff. The free water, coffee, cookies, popcorn in the lobby too is a really nice touch! Will defo return.
Straight-forward hotel with a simple lobby, standard rooms but everything is comfortable and clean, with a helpful & friendly staff. Hotel is just 1/2 block from Union Square, a great location for walking around SF. Comfy bed, big closet in our room too. Free coffee, tea, cookies and apples all day long.
Our room was a bit warm, even with heat turned off. Not sure why.
- Location - bang on union square and close to all major shopping and food places - Pretty much most of the stuff in place
- Tiny room - practically no space left if you have 2 or more suitcase - Nothing else really
desk mounted USB&chargers great for keeping powered up with short cables deep bath tub great, helpful staff - staff - staff location - location - location
a bit tight & yesteryear
Staff were very friendly and helpful location excellent room was very good and we had a great view overlooking union square we would love to visit your hotel again in the future
When we came back from shopping we found the bar was closed which was dissapointing as it was only 10 20 pm and we were looking forward to a little nite cap
Staff - front desk, doormen, wait staff, all of them were friendly and cordial. Location, location, location! Food in the dining room was great, coffee bellisimma!
Staff was awesome- they responded so wonderfully to my husbands 60th birthday- more than I could have expected- thank you so much!!!! I requested and received a room with a view of Union Square- thank you again! The front desk recommended a wonderful restaurant for our Christmas brunch too. The rooms are small but very nice and plenty of room. I love the intimate size of this hotel and their amenities. It pleasantly reminded me of My times in Europe. The beds were really comfy. We were only there for one night, but we thoroughly enjoyed our short stay. This is a great valued hotel! Thank you again for the extra hospitality!
Small bathroom, but still quaint and functional- after all, it's a 100 year old hotel.
The friendly staff, free coffee and biscuits, great location and comfy bed what more could you ask for
Everything was super
Great choice to be right near Union Square, shops and cable car.
Room was small and a bit stuffy but didn't really matter as only in there to sleep.
