San Francisco Area Hotels - Help

I'm looking for some information about the
San Francisco area. I've got a job interview in San Francisco and will be traveling from Tennessee. I've never been to the SF area and needing some help with hotels. I've found combo airfare/hotel rates and need some advice on the hotels listed.

Hotels include the Gates Hotel - San Fran.
The Mosser - San Fran.
Clarion Hotel - Millbrae
Allison Hotel -San Fran
Westin San Fran Airport
Ramada Inn SF Airport

Could someone let me know if you've had any good/bad experiences with any of the above listed.

Thanks for your help in advance.

Not familiar with any of those hotels. However, because of the distance, don't stay in one of the airport hotels--stay in the City proper.

You might check the SF board on the hotel section of . Some folks are getting some very nice lodging off Priceline with information gained on the former.

Although I have not stayed at any of the above hotels, I do live in the area. The Allison and the Gates are both located in Union Square in Downtown. I really would not recommend downtown SF because it is a dirty and run down area of town (ie streetpeople, drug dealers, etc. The Mosser is located in the South of market area, which is marginal at best. Your best bet would be to stay at one of the airport hotels. From the airport to downtown is only about 13 miles. If you prefer not to drive into SF, you can take the Caltrain at the Millbrae Station to SF. Check for more information.

If your job interview is downtown, stay downtown--traffic in and out of San Francisco can be terrible. I have visited the city innumerable times and alway stayed downtown, either near Union Square or Fisherman's Wharf (the last time last December) and never had any problem with street people (other than a persistent mime years ago). If you're not used to big city street people and ambience, you may find it disconcerting, but I'd opt for the convenience of being close to your interview, again, if it's downtown. Sorry, but I don't know either of the two downtown hotels you mentioned.

Traffic heading into SF is really not that bad. In the morning, most of the traffic will heading out of San Francisco toward San Jose. It shouldn't take you more than 20 minutes to get to downtown SF from Milbrae of the SF airport area. Again, I would not recommend staying in the downtown area.

We are looking for names of some very nice hotels that are near the Hertz Rental Car drop off at 433 Mason Street near Union Square. This is for mid-November. We have stayed at the Prescott before and liked it.

If you have your interview in SF, it is STUPID to stay at the airport. The city is the place you need to be, especially since most job interviews are a.m. Read through the recommendations and consider the source, Lyrac.
