The Orchard Hotel is in a great location for exploring San Francisco. We walked through Chinatown, through North Beach and down to the Embarcadero. Staff was very welcoming and helpful. Rooms were pleasant and we enjoyed our stay. Would definitely come back when visiting SF.

The old buildings are horseshoed around old parade grounds facing towards the water. The grounds are made for a quiet getaway, and include a spa retreat (which I did not test out). You can walk to a pier overlooking Alcatraz on the far left, San Fran across the way, and the end of the Golden Gate bridge at your door step. Despite feeling like you are at a spa retreat, there is a beautiful old bar and a lovely restaurant on the grounds, both of which we did enjoy. The restaurant was fabulous (highly recommend the front dining for the view and the piano playing). There were a fair amount of business dinners going on so I would say it could be for private meetings or a romantic getaway. The rooms are individual old NCO army housing and adorable. The bathrooms are modernized but the rest of the place is like going back in time, and cozy and personal. Wifi was free too so you could work in the comfort of your own little living room.

I stayed at the hotel for a recent conference at the Moscone Center. The location of the hotel was very convenient for this. The hotel itself was well presented and clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful at all times. I stayed in a room at the back of the hotel - having read previous reviews about noise - and this was perfectly quiet. I'd also read some reviews about a musty smell in the hotel, which I did not experience at all. Excellent!

This San Francisco hotel is in bustling, stylish Union Square, a block from cable cars and one-half mile from the Moscone Center.More
Lovely, elegant entrance foyer, two great bars and an excellent restaurant, combined with perfet central location make this an ideal place to stay. Being in the Union sqare area means a lot of the city's history and architecture is within easy walking distance. Staff are helpful and pointed out some iconic restaurants. The cable-car goes directly past the hotel and takes you over to the waterfront areas. The room was small but well appointed, and a little noisy at night-not unexpected given the central location. Would definitely stay there again.
