“Great Hotel and Value in the Heart of San Francisco”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

My mom and I travelled here in May as a graduation trip for me. We loved the location. We were able to walk everywhere or take public transportation since we did not have a car. There are many great restaurants and China town is literally around the corner. The room was very clean and comfortable and quite for being in such a busy location. My only complaint is that the shower had very little pressure- but it is a green hotel trying to conserve energy and water. Overall I would recommend this to everyone!

Congratulations on achieving an amazing milestone such as a graduation. We are thrilled to hear you and Mom chose to stay here with us for the girls’ getaway. I am pleased to read that you both enjoyed the location. I tell guests all the time a car is not needed in San Francisco, especially with so much to see and do just outside the front doors.
I am so sorry you felt the shower was inadequate. True, showers have a lower pressure than most homes. However, our showers heads allow 1.5 gallons per minute. This is to stay in line with LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design); nut is also becoming quite common amongst hotels.
Thank you so much for the stellar review. We truly appreciate your kind words and feedback. We would be ecstatic host the next girls’ getaway.

Kind regards,
Quinn McEntee

This was a very pleasant hotel with friendly staff. Our room was very clean, quiet, and the bed was comfortable. The location was great, within walking distance to downtown and Union Square. Cable cars were only 2 blocks away. We also enjoyed the rooftop garden. A comfortable chair in the room would have been an improvement-only a desk chair was provided. Internet service was adequate, but slow.

Green Features: Caring for the environment is critically important in this day and age. The hotel should be commended for this and is setting a good example for other businesses.

Thank you so much for sharing your experience, we truly value your feedback. I am happy you enjoyed the location as well as the rooftop terrace. I am always surprised how calm it is up there despite being so close to Downtown and Union Square.
I am sorry the wi-fi was slow; I realize how important a strong internet connection is when you’re traveling for business. We have recently added more routers; clearly we will have to reevaluate our setup. We also offer Ethernet cables so guests can plug in rather than rely on wi-fi.
Due to some of the rooms not having as much floor space as others, not all the rooms have additional seating. If you ever choose to stay with us again, and I hope you do, please feel free to contact me and I can do my best to make you get a room with a extra chair or a sofa.

All the best

Couple from Australia in San Fran for 4 days. Never been to the USA before. Wanted something local, accessible and affordable. Certainly delivered. King room, super comfortable bed, Hassle free check in and friendly staff. Close to most attractions and most in walking distance. Very happy and would come back.

We thrilled you chose to stay with us, we are honored to have been part of your for your first USA experience. I hope you had enough time to see everything on the to-do list while you were here. I am pleased to read the Hotel property met your criteria. I think the location is amazing, because it is very central but still quiet enough for resting and power naps in between sightseeing excursions. We look forward to your second trip to San Francisco.

A wonderful hotel...with warm and attentive staff. The rooms were exceptionally clean and modern....we couldn't have asked for a better experience or a better location. The Orchard is within walking distance to downtown San Francisco.

No negatives to report. I was in room 403 facing the back,no view, but quiet, which I had asked for. Everyone was pleasant. The bed was very comfortable. I appreciate the hotel is 'green' conscious. You could hear some muffled sound on occasion from adjoining room but not bothersome. It's a nice clean hotel, easy walk to Union Square and city transit. Will stay here again when I return next year to see my cousin.

Thank you so much for the very kind review and commending us on our efforts to be an eco-conscious Hotel. I am pleased to read that the comfort and quietness of our property met your standards. It sounds like you enjoyed San Francisco, it is nice to have a family member or friend to play tour guide to lead you to some of the less popular places but equally great destinations. We look forward to your next trip out for the small family reunion.
Best,

Made my reservation thru Hotels.com. Upon checking in, the clerk confirms the reservation was for one night. I told her that is was incorrect. She began to give me attitude and told me to take it up with Expedia (who owns Hotels.com) I provided her with the internet confirmation showing the correct dates. She was not persuaded to change. However, her manager or concierge (really don't know what he was) had heard the exchanges between the clerk and me and swiftly took over the checking in, corrected the dates on their computer and essentially fixed it. We got our room keys and off we went. From that moment on, the hotel staff (other than the check-in clerk) went far and above. We got great suggestions for restaurants. I had a problem with the safe in my room, within 5 minutes, the IT guy was there took care of it. I sleep late in the mornings so I placed the do not disturb sign on the door. About noon, housekeeping called and left a message to see If I needed or wanted service. Can't say enough good things about this hotel. It is on Powell and central to everything. Will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Stayed in #210 so it did not face Powell and the cable cars.

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience with us. Although I am very pleased to read that your stay concluded on a positive note, I am so sorry for the inconvenience during the introduction. I will use your feedback as training material to avoid similar occurrences in the future, and to ensure this scenario does not happen again. Fortunately it was remedied swiftly and you were able to enjoy your vacation. I am equally happy to read we were able to get pointed in the right direction to some good eats. One of the nicest factors of the location is all the delightful cuisines to choose from.
Please feel free to contact me the next time you visit San Francisco. I would be more than happy to personally take care of your future reservations to minimize any confusion.
