Eco-friendly hotel near Union Square and steps from cable cars

As its name suggests, the residential-style Orchard Hotel is all about the environment. The boutique hotel was San Francisco's first hotel to become LEED-EB certified by the U.S. Green Building Council, and it continues to tout a number of eco-friendly programs today. The hotel was built in 2000, and rooms still feel brand-new. Daffodil, the on-site restaurant, serves a variety of cuisines from all over the world.

Highlights
  • Eco-friendly programs and organic bath products
  • Walk to shopping at Union Square and Westfield Centre mall
  • Complimentary business and fitness centers
Rooms

Relax and rejuvenate in one of the Orchard's 104 rooms, including nine suites. Armoires feature state-of-the-art DVD and CD entertainment centers and 27-inch flat-screen televisions. Guests will find large work desks, complimentary high-speed Internet and Wi-Fi and fully stocked mini-bars. Designed specifically for the Orchard, most of the furniture is made of wood from Bali. Bathrooms boast organic bath products.

Features

The Orchard opened in 2000, making it one of the newest boutique hotels in San Francisco. When it opened, it became the city's first LEED-EB certified hotel. Since then, the property has collected a number of other accolades for its commitment to eco-friendly practices. The Orchard continues to refine its approach to green.

Art is a common theme inside; a bronze-cast statue entitled "Spring Awakening" welcomes visitors to the lobby, and paintings and photographs in hallways upstairs are from local artists.

While the on-site fitness is complimentary, guests also have access to a handful of independent fitness facilities within walking distance (fees apply).

Dining

Daffodil, the eclectic on-site eatery, pairs seasonal and local organic cuisine with wines from all over the world. The restaurant is open for breakfast and dinner only, though a happy hour menu spotlights a number of tapas-style small plate dishes.

The staff was fabulous. It was close to everything that I needed. However, it was Nike Marathon weekend and the prices were sky high all over the city. it was a very comfortable stay for myself and my family. Front desk, doormen and housekeeping staff were exceptionally warm and friendly.

Delivered What Was Expected

The Hotel is a boutique. It provides a restaurant, a small gym and a helpful staff. Breakfast NOT included - expensive Hotel Restaurant and no indoor(or outdoor) pool. The room was excellent - comfortable, clean and well cared for. There is no "cheap" price in SF. However, as prices go, the Orchard was competitive. In summary I would reccomend it and definetly stay there again.

Great Hotel

The hotel is very centrally placed and easily accessible to the tram service on the adjacent road. From the time of check in and our ongoing stay, the staff showed great professionalism, helpful advice about super restaurants nearby and reservations at them, (Italian, Mexican, Greek - you will love it). Whilst we were on holiday, my husband did his back in and the hotel staff was excellent in their help and support in getting a doctor out to see us and their ongoing concern thereafter. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough and the free internet access was priceless. They also have a computer at reception if you do not have a Smartphone. You will not be disappointed.

Excellent Business Trip

The Orchard Hotel provided a very welcoming and comfortable experience for a business traveler. The room was very spacious with good resources for keeping up with the office, I was able to use the business center at the Orchard Garden (sister) hotel 2 blocks away, and the location was excellent for my meetings.

Will definitely return!

Stayed for 5 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it! The beds are awesome, one of the best beds I've ever slept in (pillows not so much). We had a room on the eight floor and the room was really quiet. There was some kind of plumbing or water pipe breakage during our stay and we woke to blow dryer's noise in the hallway on one of the nights. Apparently it was pretty bad, we saw those dryers on many floors. Because of that they were willing to give us a really late check-out free of charge on the last day, so we were happy and got the most of our last day in SF too! Generally people working at this hotel are very nice and listen to your requests. Didn't have breakfast included, so can't say much about the quality of that.
