Yesterday (well, today still) we got a lift from town to the ferry port and said goodbye to Jo who had been a great host.
The ferry took us back across to Auckland where we found benches to sit at on the quayside and settled down for the afternoon. An excellent plan we thought until the heavens opened!
We legged it to …
Friday 7th February- Our last night in San Fran tonight. After 4 days here we can definitely say we will be returning at some point (even if we did have our first bit of rain) Both think this is the best place of the trip so far. There's just so many towns within the city - China Town, Little Italy, Fisherman's Wharf and that's not even including …
SYDNEY-LOS ANGELES-SAN FRANCISCO, 16-20 NOVEMBER: I was sad leaving Australia and saying goodbye to Gemma and Rob, Steve and Anne, and Judy and Ian and to their children and old and new friends. It will not be 20 years before I return. What a great place; it deserves a wonderful future. Anne kindly saw me off at Canberra Airport and after the usual …
A full day of travelling today. We left the hotel at 6:15am for our 8am flight. We had checked our luggage and got our boarding passes the night before at the Alaska Airlines desk at the hotel so all we needed to do was go through airport security. I made the mistake of wearing jeans with metal buttons on the back pockets so I got pulled aside for …

TravelPod Member ReviewsChancellor Hotel on Union Square San Francisco
A wonderful hotel reasonably priced and very comfortable. Built exactly 100 years ago it has 137 rooms and is well placed in the heart of SF CBD. Union Square, Macy's, cable cars, trams, China Town are all handy. It has old world charm and up-to-date excellent service and comfort. The hotel's engineer told me "Built 100 years ago it must have good bones."

Historical Traveler Reviews Chancellor Hotel on Union Square San Francisco
We stayed here for 3 nights in late Septemebr 2003. The hotel is the nicest budget hotel we stayed in during our whole trip to California.
The rooms are clean and comfortable and best of all the hotel is right on Union Square. We paid around £60/$90 per night which is pretty good for a city hotel.
As a first time visitor to SF, I chose the Chancellor Hotel based on reviews I read here. Our room was great - clean, a decent size, extra pillows, etc. The bathroom was also clean, good towels, and the big tub was nice after a day of biking.We had a room facing Powell St so there was street noise. Keeping the window closed helped, and the cable cars shut down after midnight, so they didn't bother us. Those more sensitive to street noise may want to bring ear plugs.I found the staff courteous and helpful. We also received a coupon for breakfast in the hotel restaurant, so we tried it one day. The prices were average for the area ($8-10 for eggs and pancakes), the service courteous, and the coffee good.We left SF for a few days, and went to another hotel for our last night. The other hotel is a hip, modern place near the Chancellor and we were very disappointed with it. We much preferred the Chancellor.
Great place in the middle of things
This was a great place to stay, at a great price, right in the middle of things. For two women alone, being in a safe part of the city was important and being right next to Union Square assured that. Wonderful city, wonderful staff in the hotel and out...made for a memorable trip
Nice in the center
Nice position, right in the shopping area, but if you are looking for Fishermans' Wharf and other tourit attractions it is a little fare from the seaside. Nice rooms, maybe a little small. Quite clean but nothing exceptional. Breakfast very expensive.
I've stayed in several boutique hotels in San Francisco and the Chancelor is my favorite. It's clean and comfy. The rooms aren't as small as the other boutique hotels. In fact they have large walk in closets to keep all your luggage in. They give you a cute little rubber ducky, bath salts and a candy bowl. The location is perfect - walking distance to everything in Union Square and Bart. I found rates on-line for $69 - the best deal in the city. My only complaint...as with many hotels: not enough outlets for cell phone chargers, digital camera chargers and other stuff.
This hotel was in the heart of the city.This was our first visit to San Francisco, so we had a lot of questions. Everyone was so helpful there. The rooms were very tastefully done. There was no air conditioner, but we didn't need it. There is a ceiling fan that did just fine.....even in August. If we ever go back we will surely book at the Chancellor again. Buying a Muni Pass was an excellant idea, just wish I had taken a friends advice and had taken the Bart from the airport at $4.70 instead of paying for a door to door for $14.70. If you are packing light enough the hotel is just a couple of blocks from the Bart Station.
Great location and price!
Found the Chancellor to be situated in the heart of Union Square, within walking distance of many shops and attractions. Rooms were small yet comfortable, and my rate of $99/nt was great. Found the staff to be accomodating and helpful. The restaurant was nothing special, and with so many other options close by, not a necessity. Go next door to Sear's for pancakes! Would recommend this hotel for its location and reasonable rates.
The Chancellor Hotel is great!
Great Hotel, great value and the best location. Simple, clean and all the little touches anyone could want.
I'm not sure about the other posting but I have had wonderful stays at the Chancellor. Very close to shopping, restaurants and theater. The rooms are small but very clean. We like it because you can walk to so many different things or take the cable car.
Very poor service avoid
Our room was entered and some shopping stolen. They showed us the room key read out which showed a key the same as ours had been used to gain entrance at a time we weren't at the hotel. They clearly have a security problem, someone can copy their keys. Either that or I stole my own shopping
