More Room Types

Set along the iconic Powell Street Cable Car Line, the Chancellor Hotel represents San Francisco at its most quintessential.

Just steps from the property is Union Square, one of the city’s best destinations for visitors and locals alike. Get your wallet ready for shopping at stores including Macy’s, Urban Outfitters, H&M, Saks Fifth Avenue and more, or tuck into one of the area’s renowned bars or restaurants. Chinatown is just a 10-minute walk (or five-minute cable car ride) from the hotel.

The Chancellor Hotel was built in 1914, and has been a fixture of the city ever since. It’s a family-owned-and-operated property – one of the few left in San Francisco – and the hotel has a habit of treating its guests as family too.

On-site amenities include a restaurant, free Wi-Fi throughout the property and in all guest rooms, complimentary pillow menu with 12 options, and complimentary use of a nearby full-service gym.

From the press:
