Location: Luxury and location converge in perfect balance at Hyatt Regency San Francisco, the only Four-Diamond downtown San Francisco hotel situated right on the Embarcadero waterfront. Guests will enjoy immediate access to both the Financial District and the city's most famous attractions. You'll find the historic Ferry Building on one side of the hotel, the ferry to Alcatraz and the Bay on the other, and stunning views all around. With so many options, you may choose to wander through Chinatown to Fisherman's Wharf, shop in Union Square or board the cable cars for a riding tour of the city. BART is also just steps from the hotel which can take you quickly over to Oakland and Berkeley.

Airlines and Airports: San Francisco is serviced by two airports; one south of San Francisco and one south of Oakland. The San Francisco airport is closer to downtown, but only has one runway and suffers periodically from weather delays. Oakland tends to be less expensive compared to flying into San Francisco, and does not tend to have weather related delays. The Oakland airport shuttle is a little more expensive and there can be delays crossing the Bay bridge if you arrive during the morning rush hour or leave San Francisco during the evening rush hour.
