Second time here. Last time myself (and others) pointed out the terrible internet service. Well, they fixed it, so now the deal-breaker is corrected all the the good points of this hotel are worth mentioning...Nice-sized rooms, very clean, quiet, refrigerators, very convenient location, many restaurants nearby, eco-friendly but not obnoxious about it, easy walk to Moscone, attentive service, large bathrooms,...

This was our first stop on our recent trip to the States. After being in transit for 34 hours it was nice to arrive at the Orchard Garden. Check in was a breeze and our room was everything we were expecting. The location of this property is its major draw card in my opinion. You are right at the entrance... More

The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and quiet, and everything is pretty environmentally friendly. The location is great as well - even late night you can find food and drink, and its a good jumping off point for other parts of the city. Good stuff - would definitely stay here again and recommend to others!

I love the location of this hotel - not quite in the heart of Union Square, but just a short walk away. It's also a short walk to Chinatown and cable cars. I walked to the Ferry Building Marketplace for delicious gourmet foods, then took the ferry to Sausalito. Great fun. I also appreciate that Orchard Garden is so eco-friendly.... More

This was my first trip to San Francisco, and this hotel was one of the cheaper ones I could find. What a surprise it was, probably the most high end hotel I've been to.

If you want a most accessible location in SFO, this is the hotel to be in. I have stayed in the original sister hotel close by and bioh compare favorably though this one is newer.

Stayed here for one night. Booked fairly last minute, rates were expensive but this is San Francisco and it's the holidays. My room, 805, was quiet - especially quiet given that the view was of a building roof top next door and not the street. Room was clean, bed was comfortable. Bathroom was large, shower was OK. After making the... More

The Orchard has a lot of pluses. The best may be a great location for exploring Chinatown, the French areas on Claude and Belden right across from Cafe de la Presse, easy to get to Union Square even North Beach is not a far walk. It's a LEED certified building- eco friendly laundry policies, wall mounted soap dispensers and one... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
