Best area of SF to stay in? First-time, no car.

Hi there,

we are a couple of girls who will be in San Francisco for several days in May. We flying in & out of SFO and will be reliant on public transport during our stay, so ideally we would like a hotel within walking distance or short transit ride to most attractions. Union Square seems like the obvious choice, but does anyone have any suggestions for specific hotels? Or tell us about any must-see sights.

Thank you!

What is your budget? What kind of hotels do you like?

Union Square is a great place to stay.

Ultraslow realizes that «Union Square seems like the obvious choice» of where to stay.

«tell us about any must-see sights.»

The "Don't-miss SIGHTS in San Francisco" page geocities.com/iconoc/Articles/Sights.html has enough to keep you busy for nine twelve-hour days. It includes links to your best source of advice on WHERE TO EAT and, according to the Department of Health, WHERE TO NOT EAT here, the UseNet Group ba.food, and the quite-good sfSurvey. It also has a WEATHER CHART with a link to current conditions.

The best on-line MAP of San Francisco is an inter-active PDF created for the San Francisco Municipal Railway: geocities.com/iconoc/Grafix/CityWide.pdf. I recommend 150% or greater magnification. There's also a link that will tell you HOW TO GET THERE FROM HERE. Other links on the page, geocities.com/iconoc/Grafix/FlagMaps.html are a map of our CABLE CAR ROUTES and a superb map of GOLDEN GATE PARK.

The frequently-updated SPECIAL EVENTS page has irregularly-scheduled music and dances as well as links to seven calendars of regularly-scheduled dances, a composite of five of them, and one of dance cruises and events around the world: http://geocities.com/dancefest/Specials.html
