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.

I stayed here for a week on a business trip and overall had a pleasant experience. The room and amenities are top notch, especially the water stations. The staff at the hotel are very nice as well. The only negative was the housekeeping knocking on doors at 8:30 AM. I told them to come back a bit later a couple of days as I was getting dressed. On my last day, I woke up to a knock and before I could respond, someone opened the door but apologized immediately and left. The housekeeping hours should be after 10 or 11 in my opinion, when people are more likely to be awake and fully dressed. I liked the stay but will likely consider other hotels next time based on my experience.

Dear Lakshmi Priya G, Please accept our sincere apologies that housekeeping knocked on your door at 8:30 a.m., and entered your room on your last day before you could respond. It is very important for guests to hang out the "Do Not Disturb" sign on the door nob at night and to remove the sign when they are prepared for their rooms to be serviced. We check "Do Not Disturb" signs several times a day and are committed to absolutely honoring them. Unfortunately we know of no hotel that starts housekeeping service after 10 or 11 a.m. But our team is also committed to honoring guest requests to service rooms at any time they specify by calling Guest Services or the Housekeeping Department to arrange this. When that does not happen, we certainly appreciate hearing about it in real time so we can ensure the rest of your stay will be perfect. Our Executive Housekeeper Jeroen would be grateful for the opportunity to extend personal apologies, and we hope you will please call him directly at your convenience. Thank you again. Best wishes, Klaus Atzmueller General Manager

Hotel's Favorite
The Orchard Hotel surpassed our expectations in every way —cleanliness, serenity, welcoming atmosphere and, most especially, service. My husband and I have travelled throughout the USA, Canada and Europe and cannot recall ever staying at a hotel that got everything right from the moment we stepped through the door. When we encountered a last-minute transportation challenge before an important medical appointment, the General Manager, Klaus Atzmueller, quickly arranged a car and driver to assist us. Two days later, in recognition of our challenging week, he gave us a thoughtful gift from the hotel. Furthermore, his employees treated us with kindness and courtesy during each interaction over the five days of our stay. The hotel became our place of rest and respite after long medical appointments. If you are seeking a superior hotel with superb service, choose the Orchard Hotel!

After a luxury cruise we wanted to see San Francisco once more and had chosen the Orchard Hotel due to location and near Alamo station. And we really were surprised to find this charming hotel with very friendly staff. For sure we come back if there is any possibility for a new trip to the West Coast.

Clean rooms. Great location of the hotel. We stayed for one night and the stay was pleasant. While not luxurious, the price point was good. The room was perfectly sufficient though not elegant. They have nice robes in the rooms and offer a turndown service.

Dear mbolster, While all of our accommodations provide the amenities of any fine five star hotel, for absolute luxury next time, we highly recommend reserving one of our beautiful and elegant suites. The "price point" is more than fair, and the spaciousness, beautiful appointments (including original artwork) and luxurious amenities create an ambience that will raise your San Francisco experience to a new height of refined, relaxed comfort. We look forward to welcoming you to one of our premier suites on your next visit to San Francisco. Best wishes, Klaus Atzmueller General Manager
