great for couples

The Orchard Garden Hotel is a cozy new hotel with a very European feel.A green hotel that is obviously Earth friendly has recycle bins in the room.It was nice to be provided with a robe and slippers for relaxing while in the room,also a programable safe in the closet.Located one door down from the gate to Chinatown, many fine restaurants and cafes were just a few steps away including Roots in the hotel.

Perfect Choice

We rented several rooms at San Francisco's Orchard Garden Hotel for everyone in attendance at our daughter's September 14th wedding. Less than a year old, the hotel was absolutely perfect in every way. The staff was especially friendly and accommodating. We would not hesitate to stay there again.

Excellent

Great location, excellent service and spotless rooms. However, the room could use more seating furniture rather than using the bed.

Great Place to stay while in San Francisco

The Orchard Garden Hotel was a great place to stay while in the City. Location was perfect to see most all the hot spots. Room was very clean and comfortable. Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. The Room was very quiet given its location next door to ChinaTown. Breakfast was very good and the restaurant was excellant. I would stay here again.

It IS easy being Green

It was interesting to be in the first LEED certified hotel. It kind of makes you feel good about staying there. The only changes I would recommend are to stop the daily newspaper deliveries - very paper-wasteful and to put volume control showers in to use less water. The bathroom was large and well lit. The rooms were so well insulated against noise I think I heared one door close in my 4 nights there. The rooftop was a great place to just sit out (there was a heat wave when I was there). The location is convenient, right next to the arched entrance to Chinatown. The staff, while a little disorganized, we so nice - of course people in SF tend to be nice anyway. We ran into the concierge down the street buying food for a homeless person. I highly recommend this place. I hope to stay there again on my next visit to SF

Perfect location

This beautiful hotel was home to 8 great friends celebrating 3 retirements. We saw Wicked at the Orpheum Theater, shopped at the SF Shopping Center and spent the next day in Chinatown. The location was perfect. The rooms were large, clean and beautifully decorated. Everything about the place was classy. My corner room on the 6th floor looked out over Bush St. I did not hear traffic noise. What a plus! The bedding was incredible, as was the comfort of the bed. We took advantage of the roof-top patio for some late-night fun. Plenty of room, gorgeous views and until they start bar service, it's BYOB. It was great fun!

Wonderful Stay

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Orchard Garden! Check-in (and check-out) was a breeze, the entire hotel staff was extremely courteous, friendly and helpful. The room was a little small, but very nice with one of the most comfortable beds I've every experienced in a hotel. Location is great! At the entrance to Chinatown and a short walk to Union Square, the legendary cable cars. This is a very environmentally conscious hotel, encouraging recycling and energy conservation, but don't worry, this in no way detracts from a very comfortable and convenient stay. Good value. Would definitely stay again. Highly recommended!

Try Bangcock Best at the corner of Bush and Kearny - great Thai food, reasonably priced, restuarant is casual and very clean. Cafe Metropol around the corner on Sutter St was a very pleasant find! We had a late lunch there, not many other diners, but the food was wonderful and the staff friendly - excellent! Would definetely go back!

Small Boutique Hotel A Hit

Our stay at the Orchard Garden Hotel was a pleasant experience. The small boutique hotel is fairly new and not many of the locals(cab drivers, tour bus drivers) seemed familiar with its unassuming location. It was right around the corner from the gates of Chinatown and an easy walk to the wonderful shopping of Union Square. The SF French Quarter is right across the street with sidewalk cafes found tucked away in nearby alleys. The business district and BART line is a short 10 minute walk. The Cable Cars and Trolley line was a short walk as well. The hotel staff was very helpful in providing assistance with directions and answering our questions. The room was quite comfortable,and the European style complimentary breakfast was a great way to start the day. I definitely would recommend people try the Orchard Garden.

The Clift Hotel on Geary Street in Union Square is a historic SF Hotel. The bar is called The Redwood Room. It has some interesting art on the walls that lights up around 8:00.
