Willing to go more to stay in a B&B-type place rather than a chain. Bourbon & Branch, Alembic, Absinthe are on my 'strongly consider' list for the trip. Museums, other sights still up in the air -- that national park a little north of the city is probably on the list as well. Any other ideas? Looks like three days, Th (late) 'till Monday afternoon. ~ H
It can get very
cool and breezy in the afternoon and evening, even in the summertime. June can be pretty foggy. Bring appropriate attire and comfortable shoes - lots of walking up and down hills. Washington Square Inn in the North Beach neighborhood of SF is a nice B&B - I've stayed there before and enjoyed the experience. B&Bs aren't going to be cheap, though. http://wsisf.com/
I've also stayed at the Grant Hotel, which is decent, historic and very inexpensive for a SF Hotel ~ $100 a night. It's also centrally located. The rooms are on the small side, but you're spending most of your time outside anyway. http://www.granthotel.net/
Driving and finding parking in SF is a major hassle. You can take the BART rapid transit from the airport into the city, and from there you can taxi around town. There's plenty to see in the city, especially if you're there for only a few days. Things to do: This might be fun
