Wonderful Stay

We spent a lovely couple days in San Francisco, exploring the city for the first time. The Orchard Garden Hotel was perfect: it's a few blocks from Market, right next to Chinatown/NorthBeath and Union Square. We had great service- directions, restaurant suggestions, help getting out to the airport, etc. The rooms were very nice, extremely clean, and the bed/comforter was just out of this world comfortable. Really, we have no complaints, it was awesome!

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Though Union Square/Financial district is not supposed to have the "amazing" SF food, we ended up there 2 out of 3 nights. Colibri- GREAT, upscale mexican on Geary; Slanted Door at the Ferry Building; and a find: Perbacco- a local-ist Italian place on California.

This was a great hotel for a child-less couple's first trip to San Francisco. We took the BART from the Airport, and walked a few blocks to the hotel. It's located close to Union Square and Chinatown, which means that it's really in the heart of the city. We got a great deal on our room and stayed 3 nights. The only downside was that the front desk service was lacking. There were simply not enough people around to cater to the needs of the guests. We waited to check in, and was subsquently checked in by a manager who had already clocked out (and changed clothes and was trying to get out the door). Check out was very easy though. The rooms were a little on the small side, but the bathroom was nice and the bed and linens were comfortable. there were great eating options close by, and that was great. One other weird thing, the returant is IN the lobby. There is also a little bit of a weird statue in the front lobby, but other than that. The hotel was great!

nice, new, "green" hotel. small rooms

Hotel was nice and new, the staff was very friendly and the location was great right by the gate to china town and union station. The hotel has an environmentally friendly "green" theme going. However my room was very small.

Orchard Garden Hotel

Overall the staff was excellent and took care of my requested needs very promptly and in a friendly manner. However, the front desk forgot to make my shuttle van reservation as requested (face to face request) several hours prior to going to the airport. The bellman took care of the problem by promptly calling a taxis and paid for the fare. This one of the best hotels that I have stayed in and would recommend to other travelers.
