We're in San Fran next weekend...(daughter and I)
Tuesday we want to rent a car and drive to Big Basin Redwoods State Park for the day and return to stay in the airport hotel as Wednesday morning we're flying home.
My thinking is that we'd get an earlier start to Big Basin if we're already at the airport Monday night.
I also thought it would be easier to pick up and drop off a car at the airport the same day vs renting downtown and dropping off at the airport.
Opinions? Monday night is a 'throwaway night' with no plans so I'd like to utilize it. BUT if there's no advantage there's no reason to leave the downtown hotel early.
PS. Any recommendations for an airport hotel?
