The Clipper Ship Room

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.

At 400 square feet, the Clipper Ship Room is an ideal setting for intimate groups, board meetings, training seminars, marketing meetings, breakfasts, luncheons and dinner banquet functions. You may use the caterer of your choice.  The meeting room is equipped with a 6'X4' built-in white board, complimentary WI-FI, and is air conditioned. The professional event team at the Chancellor Hotel can provide any A/V needs or other services as requested.
