Stanford Graduation in June- Transportation and Hotel questions!

Jump to last reply

Sorry for some really dumb questions...I haven't stayed in the San Francisco area in years!

It's a very last minute plan, but I'd like to see my "almost" daughter's graduation from Stanford in June. I'd arrive on very early on Friday the 14th and attend the ceremonies on both Saturday and Sunday. I might play tourist for a day or two afterwards.

I see lots of hotels just south of SFO, at very reasonable prices for those days. There is nothing showing up around Palo Alto. Would It make sense to stay there and commute?

Google indicates about a 30 minute drive to Stanford, tho I'm guessing more like an hour with traffic.

Or is there a relatively direct form of mass transit to Palo Alto? Her family has rented a house near campus, so parking a car there or being picked up at a transit stop by family are both options.

Thanks for any ideas!
