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 Chancellor Hotel is a 3 star hotel located on Union Square, in the heart of San Francisco, on the Powell Street Cable Car Line. Once the tallest hotel building in San Francisco, the Chancellor Hotel has 137 rooms including 2 suites.
