Stayed at the Orchard Garden Hotel en route to New York for the ill-fated 2012 Marathon. This hotel has a very handy and accessible location. It is close to everything and I felt safe walking in the nearby areas at night. Theres a couple of good cafes across the road and you're next to the gateway to Chinatown. The financial district is just down Bush St. and Union Square is only a few blocks away (about 1km). Once at Union Square, you're practically close to everything: Macy's, Apple's iconic store on Stockton St., and shopping Boutiques along Grant and Post Streets. Catching the famous cable car is also a breeze: from the hotel, take a short walk to Union Square and catch the cable car along Powell St.
My room faced Bush St on the 9th floor. I didn't think it was noisy at all. The bed was very comfortable and the room comes with complimentary wifi service. As a hotel that is eco-friendly, it uses a lot of recycled materials and recycling bins. My only complain about our room was the dirty and stained chairs (see photo). I think these chairs should taken out of service. Other than that, my room which was a Superior King was spacious, clean and comfortable. My parents however stayed in a standard king and the room was rather narrow and furnitures are close together.
I was most impressed with the service from the staff at the front desk and the ever so helpful doorman. We were scheduled to check-out and fly to New York the day after Sandy storm. Our flight was cancelled but we wanted to check-out and try our luck for flights at the SFO. Ruby (at the front desk) suggested that we could pay for our stay and book the room for another day, and if we managed to get a flight out of SFO, to call her and she'll cancel the booking at no charge. Her calm and friendly voice was just what we needed when our plans were in chaos. I have never received such an accommodating and friendly service from any hotel staff going to such length. I am genuinely impressed with the staff during my stay and recommend this hotel.
