Chancellor Hotel on Union Square

"Where the Cable Car Stops at Your Doorstep"

For over 100 years, the Chancellor Hotel has been a fixture on Union Square. Built for the Panama Pacific International Exposition of 1915, it was the tallest hotel building in San Francisco when it opened for business in 1914.

Today, the Chancellor Hotel is one of the few family owned and operated hotels in San Francisco.  The family's highest priority is maintaining the same tradition, service and value that made the Chancellor Hotel on Union Square the landmark that it is today.

The historic Clipper Ship Room is located in the heart of San Francisco on Union Square. The room was created in 1937 to commemorate a special era in aviation and Bay Area history: the inauguration of Pan Am's Clipper Ship service from Alameda to the Orient.

The rooms' interior is reminiscent of an airplane and boasts an aerial panoramic photo of San Francisco as it was in 1937. The Clipper Ship room was once a famous cocktail lounge from 1937 to 1980. Today, it is among the most distinctive small meeting rooms in San Francisco.
