The Orchard Hotel exceeded our expectations. We had a HUGE suite with a huge bathroom. The bed was so soft and comfy. The Cable Car runs right outside the building, so its very easy to take it for a scenic ride to the waterfront. It's also very close to the buisness/shopping district, Chinatown and North Beach (Little Italy). I didn't...

This was our second stay at the Orchard Hotel in Bush St and it did not disappoint this time, as it did not 2 years ago. The location is fantastic, walk 5 mins downhill to Union Square, 5 mins to Chinatown, a great walk (20 mins?) to Fisherman's Wharf. The hotel is small in number of rooms, but has all...

A lovely boutique-type hotel 3 mins from Chinatown, Nob Hill right next to the Hyde-Powell cable car stop. Was here for 3 days on business and got upgraded to a suite (room 301). Great space and a gargantuan bathroom. Hotel staff were wonderful, pleasant greeting from door staff through to the cleaners, really top notch. They couldn't have been more...

We stayed at The Orchard Hotel for a week in early October and loved it. This was our second visit to this hotel and both times the staff were friendly and helpful; room and bed were comfortable and the location was convenient. The restaurant was also very nice-- the meatloaf was great! Didn't have time for breakfast most days but...

Booked a two day stay based on TA reviews. On arrival we were told that some guests had not booked out of their rooms and there was no availability for us, and as a result they had arranged for us to stay one night at the Club Quarters and they would refund us the cost of one night's stay in...

The Orchard Hotel is a favorite in San Francisco. I've stayed at the Park 55, the Hyatt, the ANA, and others and have found this smaller property is a jewel that can stand up to any of the major hotels. The service is first class, the rooms elegantly maintained and larger than most SF properties. The bathrooms are spacious and...

Husband and I stayed for one week at the end of september/beginning of October. We booked based on the reviews here and we weren't disappointed. It was our first visit to San Fran and found it quite hard to get our bearings after catching the BART, but eventually got where we needed to be. The hotel is in an excellent...

I can't remember when I stayed in a nicer place. The staff was very pleasant, and the hotel is perfectly located for my purposes. My room was soooo comfortable, I wish I could stay for a few weeks.

I chose The Orchard Hotel based on the reviews in tripadvisor. The hotel is everything good said about it previously. The room and bed was so comfortable and the front desk personnel pleasant.

First time stay in SF using The Orchard, it was excellent. Large rooms (for SF centre), comfortable bed, quiet (for SF centre) and with excellent in room facilities. Tastefully furnished, well maintained, excellent housekeeping staff etc. The only two negatives are parking is expensive (but reasonable for SF) and in a nearby garage (Valet is available) and the coffee in...
