Bedford to SF, CA

We left Bedford at the crack of dawn (well, 6.30 am) and got a car to Heathrow Terminal 2. Pretty bad traffic so it took nearly two hours. No matter we got our flight and settled in for a ten and a half hour cramped, smelly and noisy snooze. (Note to self, don't fly United again! Although the crew were lovely it was a …

    Historical Traveler Reviews The Orchard Hotel San Francisco

    Extremely Solid

    from

    Excellent hotel for the money. Rivals the W and others in its class.

    Good service, top notch decor & furnishings, cushy bed, perfect location. Only issue - make sure to ask for a room that's not on the noisy alley way.

    Orchard a Treat

    from

    We were greeted upon arrival at the Orchard Hotel by Cornell, one of the doormen, who dealt with our luggage and our vehicle expeditiously.

    Exceeded HIGH expectations

    from

    We picked the Orchard Hotel based upon the great reviews posted on Trip Advisor and Travelocity, so we had very high expectations. The Orchard Hotel far exceeded them. Starting with James the doorman who was awesome. A great guy and extremely helpful. The front desk staff was very pleasant and accomodating. We arrived before noon to leave our bags while we explored the city. They checked us in to our room three hours early! And the room was magnificent. We had booked the least expensive room in the hotel and were expecting very ordinary accomodations. Imagine our surprise when we were on the top floor with a view of the Mark Hopkins. We even enjoyed a couple very recent movies (free) on the in room Sony DVD home theatre system. The continental breakfast was okay, nothing to rave about like the rest of the hotel.

    Beats expectations

    from

    What a great choice for a hotel for our first time to San Francisco.

    The staff was excellant as was the doormen. Without the help of James and Cornell we would have been lost! We just had a King room. What great furnishings. First class all the way. The bathroom was very roomy and the amenities were excellent. We were going to stay at the Monaco, but chose this hotel instead. Nothing against the Monaco, but at $139.00 per nite with a very nice continental breakfast included, it can't be beat. The location is great as we spent our first nite at Scala's. Have your meal or snacks at the bar and just people watch. We know where we will stay the next time we go to S.F.... The Orchard Hotel.

    The Orchard is Awesome!

    from

    Stayed July 2-6, 2003 After hours and hours of research to find the perfect location/lodging in San Francisco I selected The Orchard Hotel.

    Not very impressive

    from

    I had heard good reviews on the Orchard Hotel, so my husband and I decided to stay there on one of our many trips to San Francisco. The rooms were clean, but not as luxurious as they have been made out to be. The staff was not very friendly, and the breakfast was mediocre at best. We spent nearly $200 a night to stay here, and I would have much rather spent the money at the Omni, the Palomar, or the W. I would not recommend this hotel unless you are able to get it at a discounted rate, otherwise spend your money elsewhere.

    Best Bed Ever!

    from

    My boyfriend and I spent three nights at the Orchard Hotel over July 4th weekend. We chose this hotel based on the reviews we read and they were all correct. This hotel has the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. I used to be a sales manager for an upscale hotel company and I have never slept on a bed like this at any of those hotels. The bathroom was also huge and clean and we both loved the Aveda products.

    We chose a room facing the alley to avoid street noise and it was perfectly quiet. The complimentary continental breakfast was delightful, even though they don't vary it much from day to day. I would definitely stay at the Orchard Hotel again. Every staff member we encountered was pleasant and helpful. I was impressed!

    Expensive parking, wonderful room, spacious bathroom!

    from

    We stayed at the Orchard Hotel during our honeymoon. We were impressed with the room and the gigantic bathroom. The little touches, such as q-tips, cordless phones and DVD player were very much appreciated by us. The bathtub even had its separate light. You can feel the newness of this hotel. The only downside to this hotel is that parking is $30 a day and especially if you are staying during a busy weekend (we were here during the 4th of July weekend), you are stuck using the hotel's valet service. The parking fees alone put an extra $100 on the price of this hotel and because it was the 4th of July weekend, we really didn't have anywhere else to park. The beds were highly comfortable (they don't feel like hotel beds at all) and the views were lovely. The noise from the street never reached us. In fact, our room was so quiet during our stay I had problems falling asleep! This was a wonderful hotel. The honor bar in the room had reasonable prices and had items ranging from 7UP to champagne. It was an enjoyable stay and I would recommend this hotel above all others in the Union Square area.

    Forever in love with The Orchard Hotel

    from

    My husband and I just got back from SF - we stayed on The Orchard Hotel on Bush Street. IT WAS WONDERFUL! There's nothing wrong with SF boutique hotels, but The Orchard is for those folks who want a little more room. The hotel is 2 years old so everything is NEW. The rooms are huge. Double glass windows to keep the noise out. Down comforters. Free DVDs at the front desk. Wonderful continental breakfast. Aveda products in the large bathroom. SF Chronicle/USA Today/Wall Street Journal. High speed internet in all rooms - you can also check your email at the front desk on one of their computers. We took advantage of their Spring Fling special and paid $132.50 per night with a 3 night stay. I will stay there again whenever I'm in SF. Try it. You won't be disappointed. This hotel was also written up last year in Wine Spectator magazine along with the big boys like The Fairmont; Westin St. Francis - just to give you an idea of where it rates. It was perfect!!

    Outstanding

    from

    Probably the best kept secret in San Francisco. World Class Service. Impeccible amenities. Great DVD System. Safe and Secure. Staff was probably the most friendly that I have encountered, especially the gents at night (after 11pm). My fiance and I had a very good time. Only drawback is the hotel's restaurant (Solea). Service was very poor and the dessert was disappointing. The bartender mumbles and you can't understand him. But there is Roxanne's next door.
