We are flying into San Jose in August and had a few questions. We are going to Yosemite for three nights but then have three nights before we fly out early on a Wednesday. There are 3 of us and I am looking to use Marriott points so I am considering several Residence Inns north of San Jose (Milpitas, Fremont or Newark - they are running specials). We wanted to spend one day in San Fran, one down near Monterey and probably one through NAPA. Any suggestion between these 3 hotels? What is the best way to go into San Fran for the day (car, bus or train)? And finally, how bad is the traffic from that direction to SJC early (~630am) on a Wednesday (that could help me choose the hotel. Any other suggestions also appreciated.
Thank you for any help.
