I have been reading countless reviews and I still cannot decide where to stay...Help, Please!
I will be a first time visitor to SF the week of Jan 19th. I basically want to see Alcatraz and Chinatown - everything else will be added as time allows. I'm not sure if I want to stay in the Fisherman Wharf area or the Union Square area. Anyone care to offer a suggestion? I won't have a car so it's either walking or talking public transport so if anyone can recommend a location and hotel with a stop right in front for cable cars that would be great! I'd like to pay $200 or less for a hotel if possible, but with that said, I need a safe, clean hotel as I'm a solo traveler.
Thanks for any guidance!
