“comfortable stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

One adult and one senior stayed for 6 nights here; the beds were very comfortable, the room was clean and tended to daily, the room was soundproofed and temperature-wise we were always comfortable. Good location for walking around and the Powell Mason line cable car stops right at the corner of the street. The other line stops just a couple blocks away, but having both as an option is great. We could and did walk straight down the street to the Ferry Building almost daily and if not there, then down to one of the Bart train lines. Lots of eateries, coffee stops and a little nearby market has all your grocery needs.

I took my daughter to San Francisco as her high school graduation gift. After much research on various websites, I decided to stay at the Orchard Hotel. The research paid off. This was by far the best hotel I have stayed. The location was excellent. It was within walking distance to Union Square, Chinatown and the BART Montgomery Station. The staff were always courteous, friendly and helpful. The room was quiet, spacious, extremely clean and well-maintained. I will definitely return to this hotel.

This hotel is perfectly positioned just off Union Square. Couldn't be more convenient. The rooms were very clean and well appointed. Lots of places to get breakfast nearby including Roxannes just next door - really good but a bit pricey. The hotel staff were extremely helpful - especially David, the concierge. Nothing to fault. Use as a base for Fisherman's Wharf (short cable car/taxi ride), North Beach, Alcatraz (take a trip - its fascinating), French quarter and Chinatown (both short stroll) and the hop on/hop off bus services from Union Square (well worth the money). San Francisco is a great city and this is a great place to use as your base.

Excellent choice for experienced travelers that wish to get perfect fit comfort avoiding big chains. We had 2 rooms: one king and a double-queen and both were very large, clean, comfortable, cool decorated, brand new utilities etc. Super close to anything a traveler would need in San Francisco either for business or just traveling. Restaurants range from cafés to fancy and cool places, all shops, laundry (various) and even public parking (more affordable) less than a block away. The staff is eager to help and provide interesting tips, far from any conflict of interests you normally can expect. The gym solution was very wise: it is perfect for one that simply needs some quick aerobic work, but a partnership provides very affordable high-tech gym close by. We were on the front 4th floor and I found a bit noisy but wife and kids did not hear anything. The walls are thick, the doors are top-line and windows are sound proof, but San Francisco is a noisy place itself. The rates are honest for each dime spent. I admire competent management and it seemed the owner’s eyes were always around.

We enjoyed our stay here immensely. It was in a perfect location, near Union Square, North Beach, Chinatown and the cable car. Our room was nice sized, well decorated, cute and charming. This is an excellent boutique hotel.
The bathroom was lovely and nicely sized, as well. The concierge and front desk staff were friendly, knowlegeable and helpful. We enjoyed our stay here immensely and would happily stay here again.

Room Tip: High floor for less noise.

Great location, close enough to Union Square and entrance to Chinatown, without being so close that the noise keeps you up. Couple of places to eat very close, cable car stops at the corner and there's a little market just down the street. The room was just the right size too! We didn't spend a lot of time in it, other than to sleep!
The beds were comfy, the pillows the perfect plumpness, the towels soft. We even liked the complimentary soaps and lotions. And there was chocolate!

Green Features: This is why we chose this hotel! We wanted to experience the environmentally friendly practices.
