I have a son of fermentation chiller that my bottles are in now (for 2 weeks @ 70F). I was planning for 3 weeks @ 70, but I want to free up the chiller for another batch this weekend (no room for bottles + bucket).

Any harm in moving my bottles out of the chiller and into a closet for example? My room temp is kindof high (76-ish). So any negative impacts with that last week of conditioning happening at that mid-70's? Or should I just leave it in the chiller for the last week and wait to brew next weekend?

You should be fine as long as the temp isn't too high (85°+) or fluctuates wildly.

The only problem with storing beer in a warm place is that it will age faster. That is not always a bad thing.
