“Good place if you wanna both Chinatown and union square!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013 via mobile

This hotel is very clean and comfortable, the decoration looks new and everything is good. Three blocks from union square and the Chinatown is just behind the hotel. Two blocks from cable car station, you could reach everything you wanna eat within 20 mins walking. A seven eleven is 24 hours and just 5 mins walking. Several cafe just across the street. I am very pleased with this stay.

The organic bedding at the hotel was luxurious and so cozy. I had two great nights of sleep. Love the green theme and think more properties should follow suit. Great location with easy access to public transportation, shopping, dining. Bart from airport was easy and muni to my meetings at UCSF was seamless.

Thank you so much for the kind review and recognizing our eco-friendly efforts. None of it would possible without guests such as yourself. Much thought and time went into the construction of our property and one of favorite features, one of the easiest to implement, is the divided garbage / recycling bins. I’m glad you found the location convenient and the bedding to your liking as well. All of us at the Orchard Garden Hotel hope you come visit us again soon.

We recently stayed at the Orchard Garden Hotel and had a wonderful experience - again! This is our 3rd or 4th time there and we can't say enough good things about it. The staff (be sure to meet Blue) is terrific, location can't be beat - we walked almost everywhere, price is right and the rooms are pretty, clean, roomy and a pleasure to stay in. We love this place. :) !

Room Tip: For quiet get an inside room... :)

Thank you so much for the kind review. It’s so nice to hear from such loyal guests and I’ll make sure to share your comment with Blue. It is always a pleasure to see you and family each year; I hope you enjoyed the Chinese New Year Parade this time around. All of us here look forward to your next visit, hopefully before the year of the Horse begins.

Thanks again

Very impressive and friendly staff. Wonderful location. Elegant, ecological and comfortable. Terrific mattress. I booked this hotel based on reviews on TripAdvisor and the reviews proved true. We reserved the room with breakfast which was a great idea. The breakfasts were fresh, delicious and quickly served. Can't wait to return!

All us here at the Orchard Garden Hotel are thrilled you enjoyed your stay and grateful you took the time to share. I’m glad you enjoyed the accommodations; I couldn’t agree more about the mattresses. It’s nice you got to take advantage of a tasty breakfast before exploring San Francisco; it is the most important meal of the day after all. Thanks again and we look forward to your next visit.

Booked this hotel based on TripAdvisor reviews and couldn't have been happier. Rooms were very clean, staff was friendly, location was great! We didn't want to deal with a rental car or driving in a strange city, so this turned out to be ideal. We easily navigated the BART from San Francisco Airport to the Montgomery Station, and then a short walk to the hotel. We found excellent restaurants and coffee shops in the area surrounding the hotel. Great shopping too...if you are into that. We were a few steps from the Chinatown Gate. We jumped on the cable cars just two blocks away for trips to Fisherman's Wharf and other neighborhoods. Biked to and across the Golden Gate Bridge to enjoy lunch in Sausalito. Hiked from Fisherman's Wharf to the Coit Tower. Enjoyed wine and cheese on the rooftop garden at the hotel too! Our room was very quiet too, considering Chinese New Year was being celebrated right next door. We would have liked a second chair in the room since there were two of us. We loved the "green" practices incorporated by the hotel. Hotel staff was so friendly....a young lady by the name of Blue was especially helpful and brightened our stay!

WOW! You guys did so much during your stay. Biking across the bridge is one of my favorite things to do and the view of the city from the ferry ride back is unbeatable. It seems you truly enjoyed San Francisco as well as the Hotel, nothing makes us happier. I can’t wait to share your review with the rest of our staff, especially Blue, she is an asset to our team. I’m also pleased you noticed some of our green practices, a lot of thought went into the structure of the building down to our daily procedures and we are always thinking of ways to be even “greener”. We all hope you come and visit again soon.

Cheers

Good, well located hotel, with clean comfortable rooms. Good location right on the edge of China town. Helpful staff and good value for money. Would be very happy to stay there again.

Try Cafe de La Presse opposite the hotel for breakfast.

I've stayed in this hotel several times now and each time I'm impressed by the cleanliness and excellent service. The location is great for walking and feels very safe. Rooms are comfortable, beds & pillows quite cozy. Rates are very high but competitive for a hotel of this sort in San Francisco, but don't forget to add in parking costs! Valet rates are $40 per night, which includes unlimited in/out access. Public parking is evidently available close by for about $35 per night, which does not include in/out access. Staff is highly competent and accommodating.

Room Tip: In my 3 stays, I haven't had a bad location.
