Well, if you are staying outside SF to visit SF, be sure to consider commuting cost. For example, if you stay north of SF, you'll have to take the Golden Gate Bridge into SF everyday, and pay toll coming into town. Then there is parking, and of course time cost.

There are lots of points of interest north of SF, including Napa, Sonoma, etc.

Yes. Plenty of things as TSS mentions. But stay in SF to see SF. Look at budget hotels listed in the top forums

A good guide book would help

I think we will probably just stay put in SF.. We will only be here for the weekend. Which hotels would you recommend staying at, area etc. We would prefer some place that has a suite.

Did you check the top questions ? Info on where to stay and a list of budget hotels

Look at cow hollow suites. Buena vista inn. Del sol. Columbus inn

Without any info on the number of people. Travel style , type of hotel or budget and not having a crystal ball the above are a few suggestions

Also the dates of travel will help, due to many conventions in town that soak up the available hotel rooms.

There will be two adults and one 2 year old. Would like something with a bigger room,maybe suite. A pool would be nice and something close to things so we wouldn't have to rent a car.

Please have a look through our Top Questions -- there is a *huge* amount of info there.

There are not many "all suites" options in the city. The Cow Hollow Suites and Suites at Fisherman's Wharf are the only two I can think of.

However, there are some "family suites" at other hotels. Columbus Motor Inn and del Sol are two. But check our Top Questions.

Pools are not common in the city because the weather isn't particularly conducive. The del Sol does have one however.
