The Orchard Garden Hotel, a "green"-rated hotel in a superb location in downtown San Francisco, does not sacrifice comfort at all! Fabulously comfortable beds with down comforters, quiet rooms, bathrobes in the rooms, gorgeous marble-topped bathroom vanities, and all the amenities you could want to have a quiet retreat just steps away from some of San Francisco's top sites to visit. However, the very best thing about this hotel is the staff. The concierges are helpful and friendly. The desk staff are equally so. There is a friendly "down home" feel that comes from every person who works here. The hotel is pricey, but by San Francisco standards is actually quite moderate. I would not hesitate to stay here again. Amazingly, I cannot think of a single critical remark to make!!
