Orchard Garden Hotel

466 Bush St.
San Francisco , CA , United States http://www.theorchardgardenhotel.com/
(415) 399-9807

Set in San Francisco’s tiny, unofficial French Quarter, the Orchard Garden feels exactly like a spiffy little Left Bank hotel—one that’s LEED certified. This is the first “green” hotel in town, which means eco-friendly cleaning products; separate trash cans for recyclables; and key cards that automatically kill the (compact fluorescent) lights when you leave your room. The 86 guest rooms are cheery, with blond-maple furniture, down comforters, and leaf-patterned fabrics.

Tip: On Fridays, you may see former mayor Willie Brown lunching across the street at Le Central—his usual table is right next to the window.

Room to Book: If the ninth floor’s two junior suites facing a shared patio are taken, then book anything ending in -06—these rooms have sitting areas, though no view.
