Great location and price

This hotel was a great choice for the Chinese New Years Parade. It is also centrally located to the Ferry Plaza and Chinatown. It was clean, quiet and accommodating to children. The only disappointment (and it was a small one) was that the roof top garden did not afford any real views of the City. I would definitely stay here again.

Wonderful accomodations!

This hotel is located just outside the Grant Ave. China Gate and is a few steps from Union Square, making it an incomparable location. I have stayed at this hotel many times. This time I got a smaller than usual room, but it was cozy and lovely. Everything was spotless and the staff are wonderful. I am making plans to come back to the Orchard Garden as soon as I am able. There is a wonderful restaurant across the street for breakfast and a Starbucks is also across the street. I am very plased to recommend this hotel highly.

Beautiful New and "Greenest" hotel in SF

Located in the heart of San Francisco, this new hotel built four years ago stresses "Green" with beautiful designed rooms, plush bedding, organic bath products, and 2 spa-style soft cotton robes. It has high-speed interest access and dual phones and an inviting roof top terrace. It was very quiet. We dined at "Roots" located in the hotel which has organic American cuisine and the food and service were excellent! We definitely will go back again!

purportedly 4 star, isn't.

The one great thing about the hotel was the staff: very professional and fast. Everything else ranged from blah to very bad. Overnight parking: ~$46! Ludicrous. The most charitable view of the bathroom / bedroom setup was "intimate" and in ways you'd prefer it wasn't. The room itself was ok, but nothing like the photos. As one example of the condition: the rod holding the shower broke during an adjustment, exposing rusted screws.

Great hotel for a good price

great location, close to union square. i basically stayed in this area for dinner, bar, shopping. i walked around and felt completely safe. hotel looked like a 5 star hotel, clean and nice decoration, great spot. It was green oriented and it truly made me realize all that is spent in a regular hotel. I mean do you really need a change of towels every day? Do you wash your towels every day at home? I don't think so. Great way to not waste energy either, you have to place your key in a slot to power up the lights. They have the same system all over Italy. To improve: - They should have a mini bar or at least mention if it was safe to drink the water from the sink - They should have at least free coffee and bagels at the restaurant. If you bring your car as all those reviews in yelp said, do not pay the valet here: $40 over night (wow). There is a parking lot a block away (on the opposite direction of the street walking up and to the left). It charges you only $8. I left my car there for 3 days and it was only $35. So these people at the hotel have to be making like 800% profit just on valet. Best hotel I have stayed in SF yet.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

Ate at 2 restaurants across the street on an alley, really good. Financial district 3 block away. Union square 3 blocks away. felt pretty safe walking around at night, towards union square. I mean it was packed. (It was pretty lonely on financial district though)

OK

The hotel is located well, good decor, small room, needs a reading chair. With two people, one chair (at the desk) is not enough. The green features are admirable and welcome. The recycling bins, electrical savings features, etc. are well done. However, the toilet wastes more water than its specs intend, because it doesn't flush thorough enough and, therefore, requires two (even three) flushes per serious use to get it clean. The hotel is clean. The staff is most helpful. The valet parking is expensive. Surely the hotel can get a better deal. The down bed cover is too hot. There should be a blanket alternative.

Hidden Gem

I stayed at this hotel while on a business trip. I found the rooms to be very clean and spacious compared to some boutique hotels that I have stayed in. I will definitely stay here again.

classy and comfy

This is a great place to stay - clean, comfortable, very friendly staff, and very well located. There's a free business center and small fitness room. It's literally next to the Chinatown Gate, and everything is accessible from public transport. It's a short walk to hundreds of shops, restaurants, etc. etc. The bedding, fixtures and furniture were all clean and modern.
