Fodor's Review

The 104-room hotel embraces state-of-the-art technology—from CD and DVD players in each room to Wi-Fi access throughout the building—mixing cutting-edge Silicon Valley chic with classic European touches. Unlike most of the area's other boutique hotels, which occupy century-old buildings, the strictly-21st-century Orchard was built in 2000. The marble lobby, where the bronze statue Spring Awakening greets visitors, previews the dramatic architectural embellishments,

like arched openings, vaulted ceilings, and stone floors that guests find throughout the hotel. With just 12 rooms per floor, the hotel feels intimate. Rooms, sizable by boutique-hotel standards, are done in a soft palette of relaxing colors, a balm for harried shoppers returning from a busy day of retail therapy in Union Square. The restaurant, Daffodil, serves seasonal California fare for breakfast and dinner. Like its "green sister," the Orchard Garden, this hotel has also received LEED certification, giving SF visitors yet another eco-friendly option.

Outstanding pick!

In lieu of the major hotels in the Union Square area, we picked this one for the price and comments from those who have stayed here. We were not disappointed. We stayed here three nights, Fri Sat Sun following New Years, 2009. Though the tourist crowds were thick, this hotel, about 20 yards off Powell, was quiet and sereen. A little noise from the alley on Monday morning was a tolerable annoyance. The bed was very comfortable. My wife was particularly

impressed by the size and cleanliness of the bathroom, and the hair dryer got TWO thumbs up, a rarity. Cordell, the doorman/valet, was extremely helpful, though as frequent SF visitors, we know our way around. Proximity to the Powell street cable car and Union Square is a definate plus.
