My husband, and I just visited San Francisco last weekend. We stayed two nights at The Orchard Garden Hotel, and we were very pleased with our stay. The hotel was clean, roomy, comphy beds, and the staff was very friendly, and very helpful directing us to different locations. I would definitely stay here again!!!

I have been to San Francisco many, many times and stayed in hotels all around downtown's Union Square. Orchard Garden is my favorite. I love the location, right next to the Chinatown gates and wonderful French Restaurants and a short walk to Union Square. I have stayed here alone and feel safe in the neighborhood even after dark. The rooms... More

The hotel is average in comparison to the chains. It got a 3 from me because it is ecofriendly. Other than that it is about the same as a comfort inn at best and would have gotten a 2. We paid extra for a view..don't.. U are looking at someone's roof. It is very squished everywhere so if u are... More

I wish I could rate it 2.5 stars. I stayed here just a few days ago and it was not my idea a great stay. I will start with the pros: First of all the rate is competitive in theory, which was part of the reason I decided to stay there. The location is great! The best part of it... More

We came to stay in this hotel in Sept of 2014 for two days after staying in a supposedly "more luxurious" hotel the three days previous. My husband had to go to San Francisco for business, and his work required that we stayed in a certain hotel while they were paying for his business portion of the trip. While that... More

For the final leg of our 12-day California trip, we left Monterey and returned the rental car to SFO, before heading into downtown San Francisco on the BART train (cars are not necessary in the city). The Orchard Garden Hotel is within walking distance of the Montgomery Street BART station, even with large roller cases, although it was a bit... More

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

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.
