Union Square
Originally home to rallies supporting the Union Army in the Civil War, this grand square has become the city's premier shopping and entertainment district containing the largest number of upscale department stores, chic boutiques, art galleries and theatres in the city. It's a large open area where tourists and locals gather, watch cable cars and crowds go by, enjoy a snack, or plan their day of shopping and sightseeing, If feeling the pulsating energy of the city is on your agenda, Union Square is the place to soak it in.

We travel to SF often and usually stay at the Four Seasons, Taj or Palace. This was a last-minute booking I did myself and, luckily, the Orchard caught my eye. I booked directly with the hotel and requested a quiet room away from the street. Wow; did the Orchard ever deliver!

I booked our stay at this hotel since it was part of the convention's preferred hotels. I am often skeptical about smaller hotels. The Orchard proved to be exactly what I wanted. I booked a king room and requested a quiet room with my husband as we come back exhausted after our

This is a review for the bar area of The Orchard Hotel which is called Daffodil. It's a classy hotel bar - not too big and not too small. Happy Hour served daily from 4:30-6:30PM . 1/2 off wine, beer, and well cocktails. The cocktail menu tries to aim towards local spirits and

We absolutely loved the Orchard Hotel! We found our hotel in San Francisco and will never stay anywhere else. The Orchard Hotel was the most comfortable hotel I have ever stayed in, it is truly a rare gem in a big city. The rooms were clean, comfortable and wonderfully spacious.

Thanks for the question. The hotel does NOT offer complimentary pickup or dropoff at the airport. We can certainly arrange a private driver to pick you up or drop you off from the hotel to the airport, There are multiple options if you prefer to come on your own: taxi, BART public transit, Uber, Lyft, Airport Shuttle etc.

BART is the least expensive transportation from the airport to the city. Signs from baggage claim to BART are easy to follow. The airport is the last stop, so you cannot take the wrong train. Know which station is nearest your destination. The price of your ticket is based on your destination. Powell Avenue is the station if you are staying near Union Square. Ticket is $8.95 which can be purchased with cash, debit, or credit in the airport. Uber to the airport from our Union Square hotel was $42. Get a MUNI pass on your mobile if you are staying for a few days and you plan on using public transportation. BART is NOT included in MUNI pass.
