Chancellor Hotel

San Francisco Review

433 Powell Street

Opened in 1914, this small hotel has 137 rooms and is located right on Union Square with the cable car picking up right outside the lobby. Room rates include a complimentary health club at the hotel. Parking is an additional $20-$25 per day. Quoted room rates were approximately $125 before tax.

This is a budget type hotel on the older side. We have had several positive feedback on the hotel, and many inquiries sparked by their low rate specials.

C.M. writes, "We have been at the Chancellor hotel for three days and have enjoyed our stay very much. The staff has been very helpful. The constant supply of coffee, tea, cookies, and apples in the lobby is a treat. The location is great. The room is not large, but very adequate. The deep tub is a luxury and comes complete with a little yellow rubber duckie. There is an ironing board and hair dryer in the room. We would also recommend Uncle Vitos just up the street for pizza and pasta and a Mediterranean deli down the street from Uncle Vito's for inexpensive, enormous sandwiches. We would definitely stay here again -- the price is great!

L. writes "...The hotel's service was very good. The rooms were quite small but cozy and charming. The concierge was extremely helpful with all our requests and price was right at $125 per night..."

JL writes, "I was referred to the Chancellor Hotel by the staff at the Visitors’ Bureau. Their normal rate is around $125/night. The front desk staff was extremely professional, friendly and helpful! During my stay, when I had to have my electronic keys reprogrammed a couple of times, they never exhibited any frustration but were always very accommodating!

Daily, the coffee table situated next to the front desk was constantly well-stocked with complimentary oatmeal cookies, flasks of Starbucks coffee and different types of teabags! Those cookies certainly helped me safe a lot on breakfast costs!

My room was very quiet, clean, cozy and warm! It came with an alarm clock, a colour TV, a personal safe, iron and ironing board, ceiling fan, umbrella, hairdryer and a phone that provided me with unlimited usage for local phone calls (that came in handy when I needed to make enquiries of various attractions). The extra amenities included bathing salts and a very cute rubber duck. An ice bucket was also provided. The ice machine was conveniently located outside the elevator.

I definitely recommend the Chancellor Hotel to anyone who are looking for a hotel to stay in San Francisco! I know for certain that I will stay there again the next time I visit San Francisco! "
