I spent a week in SF for training. Orchard Garden Hotel is a very nice hotel to stay. The people are very polite and the service is touching heart. The front desk lady Min Yi is very very nice. One day, SF was raining very hard, and I did not bring my umbrella, When I was wondering in lobby to...

The hotel is in a great location. The hotel is nothing fancy or extravagant. With that being said it is a nice and clean hotel, beds are comfortable and shower has nice temperature and pressure.

We spent an extra night in San Francisco at this hotel after our flight was canceled. The checking was easy, the room was clean, and the bed was comfortable. The price was great for a four star hotel in a great location in San Francisco. You can walk 15 to 20 minutes and be in North Beach, the Museum District,...

I spent a week at this hotel last month - the room was a good size (2 beds) and the bathroom was updated. Very pleasant and helpful staff. They had an issue with their boiler - which resulted in a lukewarm shower my first morning. Fortunately the problem was fixed that same day. The rooftop terrace is *NOT* a rooftop...

The quaint hotel in an interesting part of SFO provided the one night stay on our way to Napa. The staff was very polite and provided outstanding hospitality. The room (2 double beds) was clean, well appointed, but small. It was difficult for the 3 of us to deal with our luggage and the narrow walkways within the room. It's...

I'm so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us, even though it was just one night. It's great to know that our amenities were just what you were looking for. That being said, due to our location, our rooms are smaller than what you may be used to. However, many of our guests really enjoy our spacious bathrooms and...

We stayed here because the sister hotel, the Orchard Hotel, was booked. This was a nice alternative, but the room was smaller. There is a restaurant and room service for breakfast only. There is no lounge or lobby. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Good location near Union Square.

I'm grateful that we were able to find you a space in our hotel! As you said, our space is a little different, so our room size and accommodations do differ.

Located just outside of Chinatown, the Orchard Garden is a LEEDS-certified boutique hotel. Service was excellent and their commitment to the environment is obvious throughout - farm fresh breakfast restaurant, conservation of electricity (European-style room, where you insert your door keycard into a receptacle to activate power for the room), and more. The only issue preventing a rating of Excellent...

Hotels in San Francisco don't come cheap but this one delivers. Our room was quiet, spacious and comfortable, a trio rarely found downtown for less than $500 per night. We paid $380 with all taxes and valet parking included. For that we got a nice king bedded room with a huge bathroom containing two sinks, a tub and a shower....

Good sized room; also quiet rooms at the back. Great central location, walking to meetings on Market and in SoMa; or to many of the great SF restaurants. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. A few small things would make it a real 5-star (like housekeeping a bit sharper and a taxi organized for my benefit). As the hotel radiates that it...
