“Good choice!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014

We stayed here for two nights and were very pleased that the room was ready although we arrived with an early flight. The room (two queen) was clean and well maintained. The location, right next to the Chinese Gate, is perfect. Staff was very attentive and helpful in any kind. We definitely would stay here again!

The Orchard Garden Hotel is located in a great spot. The rooms are very clean and pleasent, although a bit small. Some issues: 1. There was no such thing as official housekeeping service. Each time I called for service I got an answerig machine!!! and was told that after 5pm there is no service. So I called the front desk who did their best to provide whatever was necessary. All other little problems were related to the lack in professional housekeeping services. The day before we left they didnt make up the room let alone provide "turn down" room services. I wanted another cover/quilt and was told I can't get one - just a blanket. My husband and I each like our own covers...There are dispensers in the shower which I believe are for "environment" reasons (as opposed to sample bottles) but things like moisturizer were never provided after the first time. I personnaly think dispensers are more for low class motel or hotels. . They did compensate my mother with a suite after they couldn't open her room at check in. Staff is OK depends who'se at the desk. Overall we had a good time

We arrived very late, almost midnight, due to flight and ground delays.

The next day, when we asked the front desk person, Angie, for a slight extended checkout (1 PM instead of 12 noon), she stated that they did not allow extended checkout without paying a half days charge. Even though we explained that we arrived very late and just needed a little more time, they would not budge. I even explained that I have never been to a hotel, especially one in San Francisco that costs more than $250 per night, to not be able to allow their guests who arrive late a little more time in the morning.

What a terrible experience for our anniversary getaway. In addition, the room had about the worst view I have seen, even for a downtown hotel, of a parking lot, and the couch in the room and overall room decor/carpet was quite grungy, like an old rental. It was not like other boutique hotels we have been to that have a cleaner fresher appearance.

Green Features: We have been to environmentally friendly hotels that somehow use better shower heads to increase pressure. This one was poor pressure.

Stayed here on business. Rooms were perfectly decent and mine was pretty large. Fitness room somewhat odd - just a regular hotel room containing three cardio machines. However, I was thankful of this facility and used it a few times. Location fine, service good, just all a little non-descript.

We found the hotel to be calming and soothing after coming in from the hustle and bustle of SF. Our room was clean, comfortable, and tastefully decorated. Some comments we read stated that the size of the rooms were small, but we found it was quite enough for two people. Even though we were on a lower floor, overlooking a busy street, the room was very quiet. The location was very convenient for what we wanted to do. The fitness center was very clean and in good working order. Whatever we asked of the staff, e.g. help with our car, restaurant guidance, they were accommodating and friendly.

Green Features: The environmentally-friendly practices were easy to implement.

A pretty, comfortable place with very accommodating staff. Well located if there is such a thing in San Francisco. Rooms were small but nice, bathrooms clean beds comfortable. Glad we were there. Glad we found it.

Green Features: A totally "green" hotel. Worked very well.

This hotel is very well located besides the Chinatown Gate and in a short walk to the Union Square. The rooms are very small but very comfortable, cozy and well renovated. The room service was good, but the concierge could be better. The forntdesk women weren't friendly to help us about restaurant indications and some other questions.
The breakfast was pricey and we didn't ate there. In overall, we had great times there and I consider it a good option in SF.

Room Tip: Room facing the courtyard are quieter
