Dear Yug3, Many thanks for staying with us, and for your thoughtful review. I'm glad you found our beds so comfortable, we focus on this because a great bed is key to a good night's sleep and a productive day. I am also happy that our Guest Services team quickly sorted out your room assignment. Rooms on our highest floors have quite stunning city views, but many of our guests prefer extremely quiet rooms on the South side of the building. Our in house reservations staff are always happy to provide guidance and advice, as we want to make sure room assignments are perfectly matched to each guest's preferences. It would be our pleasure to do so on your next stay, and look forward to welcoming you back. Best wishes, Klaus Atzmueller General Manager

Hotel's Favorite
The Orchard is a great hotel. Clean, very comfortable, quiet, good location and great friendly staff. What more can one want from a hotel. When we were planning our SF visit, we thought about the chain hotels, but decided based on the reviews and pictures to stay at The Orchard.
