From San Francisco International Airport

San Francisco International Airport (SFO) is approximately 15 miles from the hotel, about a 25-minute taxi ride (estimated one-way fare: $63). From SFO you can also take a 30-minute ride on the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) into Embarcadero (one-way fare: $8.95). SFO trains run three to four times per hour until 11:50 pm daily.


You can also purchase a BART SFO voucher in advance. The voucher will get you one round-trip ride from SFO to downtown San Francisco, with a small balance to apply toward another BART ride.
