The Orchard Hotel was everything we expected, and more. As I told the front desk clerk as we were checking out, our bathroom had the best lighting this woman has ever experienced in more than 45 years of traveling the country! Complete with a large magnifying makeup mirror, there was plenty of space and you could SEE to groom. As others have mentioned, we did lots of research and read many reviews before choosing The Orchard. It was a great choice!
We loved having breakfast at the little cafe just one door away, around the corner. There is a hidden gem of a French restaurant just a few doors up the hill on Bush St. that was delightful. Jeanne D'arc, 715 Bush St., downstairs at a boutique hotel, served a 4-course meal for $44, had their famous souffle for dessert. The owner chatted with us for awhile and sent over two glasses of a red wine to accompany our entrees because he thought we would enjoy it more with our meal than the white wine we had ordered with our appetizers--no charge. Charming man who really cares about his guests. Excellent food, very competent service!
Back to The Orchard--as everyone says, the location is perfect for whatever you wish to do. Our room was on the 10th floor and it was the quietest hotel stay ever. Housekeeping was excellent and the bed was very comfortable. The doorman was always attentive and helpful; we were there 4 days and he greeted us by name every day.
San Francisco was the highlight of our trip which began in San Diego, continued through Big Sur, and ended in SF. We saved the best for last and will definitely stay at The Orchard when we return to the City by the Bay. Thanks to all who made our visit so very comfortable and memorable.
