Perfect location. Right next to entrance of Chinatown. Good restaurants within four blocks - R&G Restaurant and Lounge; Irish Bank pub; Lois' 24 hour diner. The staff was extremely helpful. Compared to other downtown SF hotels; it's reasonably priced. The roof top patio was a nice touch. Other tips. No need to rent a car at the airport. BART serves...

Not overly decorated, but very comfy beds and clean rooms. Front desk staff are friendly and answer the phone promptly. We had toothpaste sent to the room and it was immediate. Great value for the location. We would stay here again.

We do a holiday date weekend in SF every year, so I have stayed in quite a few Union Square area hotels, including the other Orchard property. This is not one of those "I'm rating it 5 stars because it was cheap" reviews and then you find out it's awful when you get there. Yes, at $189 including parking and...

The hotel was very quiet and conveniently located close to the Moscone Center. Overall the service was excellent and there was even turndown service each evening. Despite being right next to the China Gate, I didn't hear any traffic noise from my room.

Great little hotel next to the Dragon Gate. Pros: extra comfy bed, quiet rooms, turn down service, friendly and helpful staff, great location, valet parking, and free chocolate at the front desk. Cons: smaller rooms, as one may expect in downtown SF.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
As the oldest in North America, San Francisco's Chinatown is an exotic experience. A unique neighborhood decorated with colorful shops, historic streetlights, hanging lanterns, and pagoda roofs awaits behind the stone-carved dragon gates. Feast on dim sum at the tea houses, or meet the locals who gather at historic Portsmouth Square to play chess or practice Tai Chi. Fish markets, produce stands, tourist shops, jewelry stores, fortune tellers, temples and restaurants come together to create a world unto itself in this historic neighborhood.
