SFO - travel logistics

Jump to last reply

A friend and I just booked flights in and out of SFO, flying in June 4 and leaving June 11 (from/to Memphis and Nashville). It's basically a first trip for both of us.

My flight arrives at 10:30pm, and hers is similar. Currently we're booked at the Chancellor Union Square. I know this hotel is nearish, but not in, the Tenderloin district, which I believe we want to avoid. Would taking BART to the Powell Street stop (or perhaps Montgomery Street?) be safe to do around 11:30, or should we focus on shuttles or cabs? I'm not worried about the distance, just safety - we're light packers, so a short walk is no big deal. We're women in our early 30s.

On the way back, my friend's flight leaves SFO at 1:00pm. We're planning to head to the Monterey/Carmel/Big Sur area on June 8. Based on comments on my first SF thread, I'm planning to drive up from there that morning before our flight rather than coming back the night before.
