Located perfectly at the corner of Bush and Powell, this small hotel delivered quiet elegance. We were pleasantly pleased to find that our first visual impression of the Orchard hotel matched the pics online. However the nicest part was the great welcome we received from staff. Concierge Alfonso was a great help in getting us information for tours and had great suggestion for restaurants in the area.
Our room located on the 9 TH floor was large with lovely decor, and a great seating area in the bay window. The beds were very comfortable. The bathroom was huge, and if I had to make one suggestion, it could have been improved with more storage for personal items and close
The location is superb. Walking distance (downhill) to Union square. Bus passes are available at Walgreens, a block away. We got a three day muni pass that took us everywhere we wanted to go. Our server at breakfast (sorry can't remember her name) helpfully explained the difference between the "L" (limited) and the regular lines. There are many great restaurants in the area within a short walk. Chinatown is just two blocks away. And all the tourist spots are within easy transit. There is a cable stop right around the corner to Fishermans wharf ( if you have to go!). Or hike up to California street and ride the cable down to the Ferry Building.
Breakfast at the Orchard was wonderful. We tried most of the dishes In the four days we were there and every one was delicious - but my favorite was the breakfast burrito. Fresh fruit to start, big portions and the friendly service was a great way to start the day. We didn't need lunch!
