My wife and I stayed at the Orchard Hotel for 5 nights on our way to Vancouver where I had to go for business. We arrived from Dubai where we stayed in a suite at the Hilton for a couple of nights. I was therefore concerned that I may be disappointed with the Orchard Hotel. The Orchard Hotel is a great hotel if you do not want to stay in one of the big chain/business hotels. The hotel is very centrally located close to Union Square and China town and is walking distance from the Ferry Building and other tourist attractions. The cable car stops at the corner next to the hotel.
The hotel staff was very friendly and very helpful with giving directions and proposing sites to see and restaurants. Our room was quite large and was very tastefully decorated with all standard amenities, clean and with a very comfortable king size bed. Our room was quiet with no sounds from outside (we faced the back and not the street - not much of a view therefore).
I will recommend this hotel if you want to stay for a couple of days on holiday and want to explore San Francisco on foot, and do not want to stay in the hotel all day where you would require the amenities of a business hotel/resort.
