San Francisco is our hub on the way to our vacation destination this coming March. I am looking for advice on transportation and hotel for our overnight stay in SF as the logistics of this stay are a little complicated. We arrive at SFO in am and have the whole day and night to spend in SF. We have a 9:30 AM flight out of OAK the next day.
Our party consists of DH, DS (age 12) and myself. I thought it would be a good idea to stay in Union Square or close to wharf so we could walk around and see interesting local sights. It appears a shuttle from the airport or a taxi will cost close to the same amount as it will to hire a private car service to take the 3 of us this distance. I saw that Pleasant Limo has been recommended on this site. If there are other recommendations for transportation, I would appreciate it. We will also have to hire transportation from the hotel to OAK in the AM.
Also, if anyone can give any recommendations on a hotel in that area? We are hoping to keep the cost under $150/night. Thanks for your help!
