This was our second visit to San Francisco and our second stay at the Orchard Hotel. We thoroughly enjoyed our 7 nights stay last year and it was an easy decision to book here for this year’s trip.
And again, we had a great time and were happy with our hotel choice.
The room, a Deluxe King was spacious (esp by SF standards), the a/c worked well (and was quiet), beds comfy, everything perfectly clean. Staff were also always very friendly. The location is great for exploring this beautiful city. There is a cable car stop just outside the hotel on Powell St and walking down (or up on the way back) to Union Square took us about 5 mins. There is a Walgreens not far down on Powell St as well which is open 24hours.
There is just one tiny thing (which didn’t really bother us): They still have those old CRT analogue TV monitors in the rooms. I understand it is a boutique hotel and maybe they feel a modern flat screen would clash with the décor? The new LCDs generally use less power than the old CRTs so maybe they’ll change it in the near future.
Overall, very happy and glad we stayed at The Orchard again. We will be back.
