The Chancellor Hotel had ANOTHER celebrity guest...

We seem to be on roll for celebrities staying with us. This time, our friends at the Magic Parlor that were doing the Eccentrics of San Francisco show at the hotel every Friday and Saturday night put us in touch with Carol Channing. What an honor.

Carol Channing, a San Francisco native, stayed with us while she was in town for a benefit performance for the Dr. Carol Channing/Harry Kullijian Foundation for the Arts, working to bring the arts education back into California schools. Joining the Broadway icon in the show offering memories, humorous story telling and several signature songs was our own Walt Anthony of the Magic Parlor.

The show was held at San Francisco State University Creative Arts Building last Saturday and it was a huge success.

San Francisco 49er Football Season is Just Around the Corner!

It is hard to believe that just about one month from today is the first pre-season 49er football game vs. Denver. Go Niners!

We have great seats for our football package right down by the field almost on the 50 yard line.

We actually only have the two pre-season games and a couple regular season games left. If you want to see football the way it was meant to be seen, check out our package:

Here are some pictures from previous years so you can see how close you are to the action

July - the start of the end of the year.

As we start July, we end the first half of the year or we are starting the last half of the year. It has been a tough year so far...good for the travellers with great discounts often available, but hard for us to make ends meet. However, the Chancellor Hotel has seen a lot tougher times than these, so things are not that bad.

Looking forward to a nice 4th of July weekend with lots of entertainment around the water front culminating with fireworks over the bay.

Fourth of July Waterfront Celebration Saturday, July 4, 2009 1:00 PM to 9:30 PM

PIER 39 invites you to enjoy a fun-filled Independence Day celebration. Rock out with 'Take 2' from 1-4pm followed by San Francisco's favorite 80's cover band, 'Tainted Love' from 6-9:30pm. Immediately after the entertainment look to the sky as the City of San Francisco lights up the night with it's Firework's Spectacular, accompanied by a musical simulcast from KISS FM 98.1. PIER 39 has the best viewing area on the bay!

  • Muni Bus and Metro fares are now $2.00 per ride! Cable cars and the visitor guest passes remain unchanged other than becoming a better value now

  • The Show we have enjoyed hosting in Luques Restaurant every Friday and Saturday for the last 3 months will be closing this weekend. We are very sorry to see the "Eccentrics of San Francisco" go dark, but we hope it will return again someday. It was a great show and they are great people to work with.
  • We just started our new breakfast and lunch menu in Luques Restaurant, featuring more Benedicts in the morning and pastas in the afternoon.
  • We just hosted a meeting for the Union Square Ice Rink that will be returning this holiday season. Hard to believe we start planning now, but it takes a lot to put on and we are happy to be a sponsor. Look for our Holiday Ice Skating package later in the year.
  • We are now on Facebook and hope to grow our fan base and use the new social networking tool to keep our friends in the loop. If you are not already a fan of the Chancellor...Please join us!
