We visited this hotel quite some time ago, and I'm very excited to be going back next week. When we visited then, the room was quiet, comfortable, and eco-conscious. I loved the close access to Chinatown and easy access to things like the BART, cable car (though they weren't running when we visited last), and bus systems. After I return... More

I spent my birthday at the Orchard, again. Actually, I spent my birthday with family in SF, but I chose to stay at the Orchard Garden Hotel. Great to see my favorites are still there, Angie and Art. Both wished me well for my birthday, and Angie again gave me chocolates, again. Nice. Also, met Joe and Jossie (I think).... More

Thanks so much for sharing some kind words about your stay, Shirley! It was a pleasure to welcome you and make your birthday celebration a memorable one. Not every room is completely identical, so it's certainly possible that your room last time was slightly larger. I hope we'll get a chance to welcome you again someday, and if so, we'll... More

Spent 5 nights in this hotel. Very quiet and in a convenient position for Chinatown and fishmernan's wharf pier 39. Rooms very clean but room looked over car park at back so was disappointing. Hotel staff ok. Shame no free coffee in lobby only water. Would recommend for a short break in an amazing city.

Very good location to get around SF while leaving the car in the parking. Very clean. Nice roof terrace. Very kind personnel. Finally a hotel that is a ecologically minded, especially for US standard! Good quality breakfast, delicious pancakes. Maybe lacking some variety if you stay a few days like we did.

The Orchard Garden Hotel is a quiet little hotel conveniently located in down town San Francisco. Close to Chinatown and Fisherman's Wharf, this hotel has it all: friendly staff, quiet and clean rooms, views of the city, and a great variety of dining opportunities nearby.

Wi-Fi is constantly dropping out, did performance testing with 2 computers. The ethernet connectivity that was promised over the phone did not hand out any IP addresses so it seems like a dead uplink on the other end of the switch. Avoid if you actually want to get work done.

We stayed at Orchard Garden Hotel for 5 nights in July. We booked it via Expedia and everything was in order when we arrived. We booked 2 rooms and asked onsite if we could upgrader into 1 larger room, but unfortunately we couldn't. Well, it was alright anyway. We got one smaller and one bigger room with sofa. Both were...

Booked this hotel for a short business/pleasure trip with family. Convenient location close to Trolley, Bart and Chinatown. Hotel was clean, slightly run down but not bad at all.

We found this hotel to be in a convenient walking location to many of the places we wanted to visit. It is close to Chinatown, Union Square, about 40 minutes walk to Fisherman’s Wharf and easy access to many restaurants…Asian, Italian, Subway, Starbuck, etc, all within walking distance.

Five stars to the awesome concierge Phil who gave great service from local information right through to finding fresh milk and teabags for a disheveled traveller! Nothing was too much trouble and delivered with a friendly smile! Really comfortable room with nice touches including the all-important super fast wifi. Central location in easy reach of absolutely everything!

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
As the oldest in North America, San Francisco's Chinatown is an exotic experience. A unique neighborhood decorated with colorful shops, historic streetlights, hanging lanterns, and pagoda roofs awaits behind the stone-carved dragon gates. Feast on dim sum at the tea houses, or meet the locals who gather at historic Portsmouth Square to play chess or practice Tai Chi. Fish markets, produce stands, tourist shops, jewelry stores, fortune tellers, temples and restaurants come together to create a world unto itself in this historic neighborhood.
