Okay, I stayed at the Orchard during a HUGE conference at the Moscone, so I have no idea how their prices are generally, but the week I stayed it was _expensive_ and that colors the review a bit.
The room I had was nice - nothing special, but clean. Free WiFi, coffee in the room, all the things you would expect from a good SFO hotel. It's not a room I'll remember in a year's time... no surprises. It was pretty big, though, which I appreciated.
The thing that moved the hotel up to "very good" for me though was the staff. I have to say, you can measure a hotel by the doorman, and the one at the Orchard was *very* good. He remembered my name from the first time I met him and gave me a good recommendation for dinner; similarly, the front desk was helpful and efficient. I'd come back for the people, without a doubt. Never ate in the restaurant, so can't tell you much about how that is.
