Wonderful Home Base

This was my home base for almost a week while I attended a conference in the financial district. The location is fabulous -- right next to the gates to China Town, in the midst of all the up-scale shopping, and an easy walk to some truly great bars and restaurants. The rooms are kept impeccably clean. The furnishings are tastefully modern and comfortable. Staff is great for tips on hotspots and directions -- incredibly happy to help and working hard to please.

Easy access to MUNi and BART, awesome beds, wonderful staff!

Spent 4 days here. Only 4 blocks from BART station to and from airport but be certain to take Montgomery St stop not Powell St. Easy access to all buses, load the MUNI app to your iPhone and getting around SF is a breeze with reasonable walks from the hotel to bus stops even for an older less mobile person. This hotel has the most comfortable beds and bedding. Very quiet, peaceful in general. Staff was extremely helpful when asked and unobtrusive when they should be. The Wifi works great for IPads and laptops in your room. One drawback is only two PC's in business center and they were always in use. I would not plan to do a lot of work there. Staff is very helpful however in printing flight info etc if you ask. Good variety of snacks in room, they are a little costly but average compared to other hotels. Plan to stay here again whenever we can.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Get a MUNI pass and load the MUNI app to your IPhone. We have no public trans where we live and found it easy to get around with a few initial tips from hotel staff to get our bearings. The bus saves tons of money to spend on the amazing sights and foods of San Francisco!

Good, not great for one SMALL reason

Walking in, you'll be very pleased with your decision to stay at the Orchard Garden. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable and the hotel appearance is top notch. Get to your room, however, and you may rethink. We booked a room with two beds to accommodate myself, my wife and 4-year-old son. The room was slightly larger than a typical master bedroom in a home. Compact is probably the best way to describe it. Very little walking space, very little storage area and tiny closets meant piled up luggage and bags for 5 days. If you pack light and plan to spend very little time in the room, you're probably fine, but in terms of typical hotel rooms, this is definitely smaller than any I've stayed in. The upsides include proximity to shopping, restaurants and public transit. The staff was great, as well. Just probably not ideal for more than one or two people.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Park at the Sutter Garage just a block up the road if you rent a car. However, the abundance of pay-as-you-go cars and mass transit options make renting a car much more expensive due to the need to pay for parking everywhere in town.

Great combination of value, quality, location

We thought this was a very nice little hotel with helpful, courteous, responsive staff. Good amenities. Good-sized, clean rooms. Very well located within easy walking distance of China Town, Union Sq. etc., and transport to all the main areas of interest, museums, etc., was easy. This enabled us to make the most of our five days in San Francisco. And good value for money. We'd stay there again any time

Great Location and Great Staff

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at the OGH. The staff was very thoughtful and informative. The bed was very comfortable and there was very little noise. San Francisco is a great town and this hotel is right next to the Chinatown gate with an easy walk to cable cars and trolleys that can help you find some incredible sights. There are also many different types of restaurants within walking distance. We would definitely stay at this hotel again. Shane

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

One of our favorite Cable Car rides (Powell & Hyde) is just two blocks away. Grab it in the early morning or late evening for some great views of the city. Don't forget to get a Clipper pass if you are using public transportation - it covers the buses,trolleys,cable cars, and ferries. Have fun!

Very comfortable accommodation

The room is very clean and looks new, location is fine(just next to China Town and close to Union Square). However considering it as a four star, I didn't find very welcoming staff from the reception. Anyways, it is a good one if you don't care or don't have to deal with the staff much.

Overnight business trip

We came into town for a meeting with a client. The location was easy to get to from the financial district. The staff was friendly and welcoming. The room was clean and comfortable. The bed bed and pillows were awesome and I had a great night's sleep. The next morning for breakfast the staff pointed us in the right direction for breakfast "Sears Fine Foods". One of the guys we were traveling with complained that we passed many good places on the way to Sears however it was worth the walk. All around great stay, comfortable accommodations and friendly staff. I would not hesitate staying again!

Overall Good Experience

Pros: The hotel is a block away from China Town, a couple blocks away from Union Scare, a few blocks from the bus and trolley stations, and within walking distance of AT&T Park. The rooms were clean. The concierge was helpful. Cons: The food was very expensive at the hotel, and there was no swimming pool.

Walk downhill to the Fisherman's Wharf and take the trolley back uphill to the hotel. The trolley goes within a block of the hotel.

Its okay...

But far from the best. Only stayed one night and that's okay for one night. Didn't try the restaurant so can't comment on that. Coffee maker wasn't clean so we decided not to use that. Bed was fine. Room was relatively clean. I would recommend to a friend only if they need to stay in the financial district and only if its a very short term stay.

A Week in San Francisco

The hotel was clean and simple. The people at the front desk were very helpful and friendly. Not crazy about the bathroom . . . It had a sliding door that did not close all of the way and left very little room for privacy. Noisy toilet, too. The location was perfect for us. Right at the edge of Chinatown . . . lots of great stores and cafes . . . walking distance to the piers. Thank you, Orchard Garden!

Wine Bar on Grant Ave sells amazing iced coffees and croissants. . . It was the perfect spot to grab breakfast-on-the-go when we had to get up and out of the hotel for Muir Wood tours and Napa tours. (Tower Tours was a pretty good company to go with for the tours, btw!)
