The Orchard is a good place to stay, and I will definitely return. Right on the Powell St cable car line, close to Chinatown, Union Square, and cafes, shopping options. The rooms, even at the cheapest end, are spacious, well-maintained and meticulously tidy. Coffee pot with coffee in the room - no minibar though. Front desk staff were exceedingly helpful....

I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. This hotel was centrally located in the downtown of San Francisco. Room was spacious, clean and tidy. When I booked this hotel, the package info stated that it came with "boxed breakfast". Actually there we were served breakfast at the nice restaurant just next to the lobby. There were plenty of choices....

This was our first trip to San Francisco. The hotel was beautiful and the staff was extremely helpful and friendly! Convenient location to many of the best places to visit downtown. Can't beat the trolley stop on the corner! They also helped arrange our tours to the Wine Country and Muir Woods. No worries on our part! Would stay there...

I stayed here on business for a week. It's just off Union square and provides great clean, quiet rooms, with good showers and temperature control. Wifi is OK but not the fastest in the world and will be staying there again the next time I come to San Francisco

This hotel is quiet,clean with a cable car stop outside. Walk down hill to great shopping & a few good restaurants. I would book this hotel again. Parking is available & hotel has a small bar which I did not utilize.

I was staying at The Orchard Hotel for a business conference and I was very happy with my accommodations and the great services they offered. So close to China town and so close to everything else, just a Lyft ride away from the Wharf!

Stayed here for 3 nights in March, it is a lovely hotel and the staff are extremely helpful. We had a huge room with very comfy beds and the breakfast was extremely good. Tip if you book direct with the hotel you may get a better rate and breakfast included!

We arrived late from the airport and there is no room service and there was not even a bottle of water in the room. I had to go downstairs to reception to get a bottle of water which I had to pay for. The room was clean and nice enough but it was very noisy in the morning about 5.15am...

I'm sorry we got off to a rough start with your room, Shona, because I know it would be frustrating if you needed help late at night! Despite that, I'm happy the room was clean and the staff was helpful. I hope you'll decide to stay with us again next time. Best wishes, Collins C., Front Office Manager

We had a very nice stay at the Orchard Hotel. The location couldn't be better, just a couple blocks north of Union Square. Staff was friendly and helpful throughout our stay.

Hotel lobby is small and not fancy but the staff was very friendly and helpful including the doormen. Location was perfect just on edge of Union Square. Room was clean and comfortable with large bathroom.
