Neighborhood
Union Square
Originally home to rallies supporting the Union Army in the Civil War, this grand square has become the city's premier shopping and entertainment district containing the largest number of upscale department stores, chic boutiques, art galleries and theaters in the city. It's a large open area where tourists and locals gather, watch cable cars and crowds go by, enjoy a snack, or plan their day of shopping and sightseeing, If feeling the pulsating energy of the city is on your agenda, Union Square is the place to soak it in.

We travel to SF often and usually stay at the Four Seasons, Taj or Palace. This was a last-minute booking I did myself and, luckily, the Orchard caught my eye. I booked directly with the hotel and requested a quiet room away from the street. Wow; did the Orchard ever deliver!

In addition to the comfortable, spacious rooms, the restuarant happy hour and server were excellent, and desk staff very helpful. Great location, too. I was here for the Learning and the Brain Conference.

Although I did not seek such facilities, my recollection is that they can provide a coupon to a nearby health club.

Thanks for the question. The hotel does NOT offer complimentary pickup or dropoff at the airport. We can certainly arrange a private driver to pick you up or drop you off from the hotel to the airport, There are multiple options if you prefer to come on your own: taxi, BART public transit, Uber, Lyft, Airport Shuttle etc.

BART is the least expensive transportation from the airport to the city. Signs from baggage claim to BART are easy to follow. The airport is the last stop, so you cannot take the wrong train. Know which station is nearest your destination. The price of your ticket is based on your destination. Powell Avenue is the station if you are staying near Union Square. Ticket is $8.95 which can be purchased with cash, debit, or credit in the airport. Uber to the airport from our Union Square hotel was $42. Get a MUNI pass on your mobile if you are staying for a few days and you plan on using public transportation. BART is NOT included in MUNI pass.
