Hotel a Real Gem In San Francisco

This 10 story hotel is in a great central location, within (and within steps of) downtown shopping, Chinatown, the Financial District, and the Embarcadero waterfront. It is the City's greenest high-end hotel, with lovely contemporary decor, excellent service all around, and valet parking. A fan of both gourmet and healthy cuisine, I was thrilled to enjoy a scrumptious yet healthy breakfast in their charming restaurant just off the lobby. My only complaint was that the windows do not open (air conditioning only), but otherwise the hotel was delightful.

Orchard Garden

Honestly, When I booked my stayI was expecting a bigger size room. But after settling in, it was perfect for me and my girlfriend. We really didnt need all that space as we were always in and out of the hotel anyways. The Hotel was really clean, beds were always made and room was tidied up every time we got back to the hotel. The staff was great. Hotel was GREEN and free wifi! The best thing I liked hotel was the location. It was right at the gates to Chinatown and Union Square was just 2 blocks down. Perfect location for my stay. Cons: There was only 1 elevator access to the rooftop and you would have to wait and wait or just get lucky to get the right elevator to take you there. Also, the ice machines were only on the 5th and 10th floor. Overall 4 stars out of 5 and prolly will considered to stay here again.

sightseeing San Francisco

Helpful front desk with giving advice. Found the featherbed too warm, so had to turn on a/c which is not really "green", so asked next day for a blanket, which I had delivered the same night. It would be great to store a blanket in the room.

Boutique Eco!

Location is great and room was quiet for where it was. We stayed on the 8th floor, nicely remodeled room for a great price. The room was on the smaller side but that's not a problem for me, I like to walk around the city, not my room. The only thing I didn't care for was the bathroom door. Beautiful sliding wood, but you can hear everything on the outside you might as well have it open... So, come with someone you feel, well, comfortable with! Oh, and thanks for making me pay for a toothbrush...

A real find

Fabulous location near Union Square shopping (and right next to the entrance to Chinatown). Brand new, super-clean rooms with perfect QUIET air conditioning. The rooms aren't overly large, and there was no view, but it was blessedly quiet, and that's a rare find in SF, especially for a hotel that's this affordable. An added plus: the hotel staff was super helpful and friendly. Every single person seemed genuinely kind and warm.

Loved the idea of a green hotel, and really loved the service and quality of a green hotel. Spacious and affordable, OGH is located at a great spot on Bush St. Great restaurants and bars around the hotel.

Stay close to the hotel. One way side is Chinatown, the other Mission and fun. I loved the sushi restaurant and the Irish Bank bar.
