Oracle Openworld books every single room in town that week.

If at all possible, avoid that week as you will end up near the airport or in the east bay.

we can't avoid that week. We fly in the 2nd and were planning on spending a few nights before going to santa cruz for 2 nights (we have a wedding to go to). We're making this into our anniversary trip in addition to the wedding... :(

I'd blame the bride personally. ;)

Maybe look to Ocean Beach or the Marina? Sausolito?

Or Marin. That's the area I'd pick over east bay or airport area.

Gear your search to non-business hotels for more availability. Japantown and Fisherman's Wharf should be relatively unaffected by the business conference (except for the tourists who are competing for the rooms).
