This was my second stay at the Orchard Garden Hotel, and the next time I'm in San Francisco I'll try to stay here again. The rooms are good sized, clean, and quiet. The staff are polite and helpful. The location is perfect for easy access (walking or driving) to many of the popular local destinations. I always appreciate a hotel... 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

On the third day of my stay at the Orchard Garden Hotel, I returned to my room at the end of the day to find an open can of beer on the desk in my room. I called the front desk and left a message. A staff member came up to my room. He said he would leave a note... More

Stayed at the Orchard Garden for a business meeting. For San Francisco, the room was huge. Bathroom was big. Beds were very comfortable, and staff was great. There was a happy hour with tasty appetizers. The trolleys are right there, and a staff member helped us figure out the route to get us to our dinner. For all those reasons,... More

While its really great to hear about the various reasons why you felt you had a five-star stay with us, I'm incredibly sorry that noise kept you up all night. I think your deduction of the garbage being picked up in the alleys near our hotel is the correct one. For some time we have been working with the city... More

I stayed here for a business trip. Very clean, quiet and courteous staff. Wifi was faster and better than most hotels. Spacious and modern bathroom. Bed was very comfortable after long day of meetings. It's a small hotel front that you could easily miss. Very convenient location at the gates to Chinatown. Great place to start a walk. I'd stay...

Nice hotel, big rooms, very clean. Located in a walking distance from Union Square, China Town, Westfield mall and Market street. Overall a very good location and a good value for money. It is not very close to the Fishreman's wharf, but you can take the cable cars which have a station in a short walking distance.

The Orchard Garden has great sized rooms so perfect if you need to get a bit of work done during the day. The restaurant is also good with really nice, friendly staff. I only had breakfast here but it's a decent standard. Great location and decent gym on site as well.

Room was decent enough. Bed was comfy and bathroom was a good size. Water temperature in the shower sometimes not very hot and walls are thin could hear constant banging of the door next door every time it opened and closed and cleaners in the morning.

We stayed in two adjoining rooms with our 3 kids. The rooms were clean, comfortable and modern. The beds were great. Though our interaction with the staff was limited, they all seemed super friendly and helpful. The location, right next to the famous Chinatown gate, was great and sufficiently central for all of our SF adventures. Next time we are... More

Pros: -Walking distance to Union Square, Chinatown, Restaurants, and Bars -Short Uber ride to anywhere else -Comfy Bed, Clean room, quiet neighbors -Updated bathroom -Con: -A little tight quartered, but by no means a deal breaker. -Valet Parking was $42, but the all-day rate nearby was $39, so better to use valet

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.
