I've booked my USA/Canada trip for March 08 and I'm SO excited! I'm spending a week in Denver with a friend, a week in Whistler with a friend, then 4 days San Fran, 4 days Vegas - yay!!
I've found vegas accomodation really easy to come across, but SF not so much!
Can anyone recommend a good hotel with the following....
- around $100 a night
- not fussed on quality, but just as long as there are no bed bugs, a clean enough bathroom and a pleasant enough place to flop on a bed and rest my feet after a long day of shopping (cable tv a must!)
- close to Union Square. I stayed there a few years ago so it's the only place in SF I'm really familiar with (plus it's cool!). I'm a big fan of walking, so I don't mind being a few blocks from Union Sq/Market St, but not really keen on being miles away.
- Alternatively, if someone can recommend an area that is cheaper, but still has it's own interesting array of cafes and shops, and is still in walking distance to Market st and close to transport, then i'm happy with that too - just don't want to be too far away from the action!
