(SAN FRANCISCO, Calif.) – February 15, 2006 – The Orchard Hotel joins San Francisco’s remembrance of the Great Earthquake and Fire on April 18, 1906 with a once-in-a-century overnight package. “The 5:13am Wake-Up Call Package” includes one night accommodations in San Francisco’s premier boutique hotel, an optional 5:13am wake-up call, a starter preparedness kit, complimentary breakfast and morning newspaper.
