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.

Area description
Situated in the world's favorite travel destination...a city that sets high standards for stylish accommodations and elegant dining, The Orchard Hotel is up to the challenge.

The Orchard is just steps from the Powell Street cable car line, two blocks from the shopping mecca of Union Square and mid way up Nob Hill...in the midst of the pulse of San Francisco.

Take 101 north all the way into downtown San Francisco. As you enter downtown, stay in left lanes on 101 north, towards Golden Gate Bridge. Take the 9th Street exit, which exits right onto 9th Street. Stay in center or right lanes as you pass over Market Street. 9th becomes Larkin Street. Go up 11 blocks to Bush Street, make a right, go six blocks and cross Powell Street. We are the second building on the right side.

Perfection!

The staff was very professional and helpful. The doorman/concierge was most helpful. The hotel had an older charm yet very clean and comfortable. It was so much better than a chain hotel. We would most definitely stay here again.

Nice Place to Stay

The Orchard Hotel was a very nice place to stay for the price we paid. The staff was helpful and treated us well. The room was larger than we expected. The hotel was clean, modern, and nicely kept. The wireless internet worked well and we could use the mini bar fridge to store our own things in our room. The hotel restaurant was very overpriced. The neighborhood around the hotel had lots of dinning and shopping options and it was easy to access public transportation to get out and explore the city. The only real inconvenience for this hotel was you had to climb half way up Nob Hill to reach it. However, it is hard to avoid hills when traveling in San Francisco! We would definitely stay here again.

Good for families on a moderate budget

The Orchard Hotel was the type of hotel that you want when you need something close to public transportation, food, and clean but affordable. The staff was really nice, my room and bathroom were large and clean too. You can tell that its an older hotel thats been recently remodeled. I didn't like the fact that there was microwave in my room, and the walls are super-thin. My toilet made a running noise the whole time, sort of like crickets chirping. I could hear when water ran in rooms adjacent to mine too. The noise and microwave were my biggest disturbances. But, it is 1 minute away from a Cable Car stop, and two-three blocks from all the Union Square upscale shops. If you need affordability with nice amenities, this is an OK hotel, if you want to be 100% satisfied and need to be close to a BART station, you should dish out the extra cash for a 4 or 5 star hotel.

Great location and Hotel

The Orchard Hotel was in a great location and the staff was very friendly and helpful. the room was gorgeous and very comfortable. It had a mini refrigerator stocked with sodas, oj, juice, water if you needed it and the price was not really bad. They cam in and turned your bed down at night and keep the room clean. The bathroom was very big and well laid out, room on the vanity for all your toiletries. Large closet for clothes and a chest of drawers. Very close to alol transportation and plenty of restaurants, shopping and sightseeing within a few miles.

Great location

The location was wonderful. It was just a couple blocks from Union Square. In the Union Square/Powell Street area you had access to all public transportation (i.e. cable car, street car, BART). The front desk staff was friendly and always tried to greet you upon returning to the hotel. The man that was the doorman/concierge was very helpful with tour ideas and made all arrangements with the tour companies. Our room was not along Powell Street so it was relatively quite. We had a king size bed and the room was decent size. The bathroom was large enough that both of us could get ready at the same time without difficulty.

Great Hotel!

We stayed here for 5 nights and loved it! The staff was super friendly-gave us tips for restaurants, directions, and advice on things to do. The room was very comfortable, extremely clean, and we loved the turndown service. Loved that we could borrow DVD movies from the front desk on those nights we were too exhausted to go out! Location was terrific, very close to Union Square shopping and Chinatown! I would highly recommend this hotel!

Great hotel. Can't say enough about it

Loved the Orchard Hotel. The rooms were clean, very comfortable. Bathrooms large. Wonderfully comfortable beds - and no street noise at all. I would recommend this hotel to everyone. We had a wonderful visit to San Francisco, with thanks to the great staff and accomodations at the Orchard.
