    IT'S BACK... get notified when Rates Drop!!   03/19/2018

    Our newest development, RateDrop.com will monitor hotel prices for your specific dates and notify you if the Rate Drops!   Monitor hotel prices from both PRICELINE EXPRESS and HOTWIRE, as well as 'regular' retail hotel rates, based upon the specific criteria you choose.   While the benefits of tracking rates from Priceline and Hotwire are obvious, another use is to purchase a refundable hotel rate using RefundableRates.com and then also set an alert for that specific hotel using RateDrop... if the price drops, simply cancel and re-book at the new lower rate.   Uses your existing BetterBidding.com account so no additional sign-up is needed.   Get started tracking hotel rates now at RateDrop.com

Hello all,

 

I'm planing  a trip to SF and the area.

 

Looking for hotel for 4 nights.

I'm traveling alone.

 

I would like to stay at the city where I can use public transport (will not have a car)

I would like to get one solid hotel (3 stars, good rating).

 

Which area should I focus?

 

Dates are:

 

Sep 7 - Sep 11

 

Thanks.

Good to see you around the board, been awhile.:smile:

 

What is your expected budget? (per nite before taxes/fees)?

Generally speaking San Francisco is a very 'mass transit' friendly city.

 

The two main downtown locations are Union Square East and Union Square West, and these will likely have your most frequent bus/train service.  As you get further outside of this area public transportation will still likely be do-able, but less frequent/convenient, and you would likely need to dig deeper into the hotels guessed to find out exactly just how close/convenient/frequent they are to mass transit. 

 

Starting our search for just USE or USW to see what might be available within your 3 star and higher and under $150/nite criteria:

3.5* HOTWIRE Union Square East for $147.00
Free Internet
Smoke Free
Fitness
Restaurant
Hi-Speed Internet
Blind Accessible
Travel Accessible
Room Accessible
Bathroom Accessible
Handicapped Parking
Roll-in Shower
==> Hotel Fusion would be my best guess for this one

 

If you wanted to go cheaper (and still have a decent rating) you would have to look further to something like the airport zone:

3* HOTWIRE SFO International Airport South - Burlingame for $117.00
Free Parking
Shuttle
Smoke Free
Fitness
Pool
Restaurant
Hi-Speed Internet
Golf
Travel Accessible
Room Accessible
Bathroom Accessible
Handicapped Parking
==> best guess here would be the Best Western Plus El Rancho Inn.  With any airport location hotel, unless there is a bus stop walkable from the hotel, you would need to take the hotel shuttle to the airport and then BART (the San Francisco subway system) to Downtown.  While this is do-able, it also looks better on paper than in reality since there is always wait times for the hotel shuttle, then walking to the BART platform and waiting for the train... 10+ minutes 'here and there' can begin to add up to a significant amount of time, especially if doing it every day (or a few times a day); although it comes down to budget vs. convenience.

Are you searching for 1adults/0children... it only appeared for me when i changed the search from the default 2adults to the 1adult (which i assume is all that you need for this trip)?

Thank you for keeping us updated on what you decide. $147 is a very good price for these dates - unfortunately, there's little else in core areas of San Francisco under $175.

 

Please let us know if we can be of any further assistance.

For this property:

3.5* HOTWIRE Union Square West for $174.00
Free Internet
Boutique
Smoke Free
Fitness
Business
Hi-Speed Internet
Golf
==> Hotel Vertigo would be my best guess

(NOTE: you could also see this result by using the BiddingHelper.com EASY VIEW tab and clicking the GREEN 'What Hotel is This?' button next to the offer)

 

I had seen this one earlier but didn't post it since it also has a $17 resort fee, which in addition to the $174/nite room rate, put you beyond your target $150/nite budget... although our current 10% Hotwire Coupon might help make this one within reach (or the previous hotel above a better value than it was before the currently available 10% off)
