I can't begin to describe how helpful the hotel staff was at helping us around the city. The room was clean, the service was impeccable. We'll stay here again.

Great Location

Upon arriving we were very pleased to see how new and clean this hotel is. The rooms are a little smaller than I was expecting but in all reality there was plenty of space. The hotel is very quiet and comfortable. It has very comfortable beds and pillows. The location doesn't get much better than this hotel. Only a couple of blocks from Union Square and all three trolley lines. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go including Fishermans Wharf. It was a bit of a hike to get down there but there was plenty to take in on the way. I would highly recommend this hotel again and am looking forward to planning my next trip there.

Friendly helpful staff and great location.

The hotel staff is friendly, polite and very accommodating. We had called several weeks prior to our stay to ask for some taxi suggestions for new years eve. They gave us several suggestions and even booked a car service for us which was great to have on New Years Eve when it can be near impossible to get a taxi. The location is so central to everything, half a block to the Chinatown gate, blocks from Union Square where you can catch the famous cable cars, blocks from the SOMA neighborhood and walking distance to the Embarcadero. We did a lot of walking on our visit and were grateful we were in such a central location. Bring your walking shoes with you, there are lots of hills in San Francisco! The hotel is environmentally friendly with separate recycling bins for paper and bottles. The room lights are powered by your room key. The hotel is clean and the room was spotless. Overall a great hotel.

Great restaurants near Union Square only a few blocks walk. Plenty of restaurants in Chinatown as well. Also a Walgreens is 3 blocks away, great for anything you may have forgotten.

Wine Country layover

Much to mine and my friend's delight, our stay at Orchard Garden Hotel was wonderful. The hotel is beautiful, the staff was very friendly and accommodating. The room was very modern, clean, crisp and comfortable. The hotel is located two doors over from the entrance to Chinatown, which was just what we were looking for, as we only had one night to spend there and then off to Napa Valley. Orchard Garden Hotel is also Green, right down to the electrical power in the room. Don't forget your room key.

I would suggest to anyone staying at this hotel to go to Hang Ah tea room which is just a short walk away from the hotel, it's the oldest dim sum restaurant, the owners are very nice and it is hands down one of the best dim sum around!

Green is Good

We rode BART from SFO to the Montgomery Station, then walked the half-dozen blocks to the hotel. It's a good, central location for exploring Union Square, downtown and SOMA, and for riding the Powell Street cable car if that's your thing. The hotel has a nice little business center and the restaurant is attractive, though we chose to eat elsewhere. Our 7th-floor room was quiet and completely comfortable, and we felt good about staying in an establishment that is environmentally friendly across the board. They even ordered a "green" car service (Prius) for our early-morning dash to the airport to catch a 6 a.m. flight. Two green thumbs up for the hotel and all who work there!

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

For excellent French bistro style food and atmosphere, try Cafe de la Presse, opposite the hotel on Bush Street. For extraordinary Dim Sum, try Yank Sing at 45 Stevenson Street--a 10-block walk from the hotel but well worth the effort.

Amazing Green Hotel

The room was so comfortable, clean and fresh that we wanted to just move in. Only down side was that the Fridge in the room was an honor bar, so it couldnt be used for personal items. The hotel staff made it possible for me to use the fridge for my medicine storage. The staff is amazingly helpful and friendly. It is the first and only Green Freindly hotel in SF. Everything was brand new and amazing. Family friendly, great for the business traveler or just a weekend get away to the coast.
