We will be stopping over in SF for two nights on the way to Hawaii in late May. DH and I will have the four kids in tow and will only have one full day in SF. We have tickets to visit Alcatraz and will have lunch in Chinatown and will probably do lots of walking before we get on another plane. We will need two rooms and my first choice is always a Starwood property but I don't want to be blindly brand loyal.
I am looking for advice on what neighborhood will be convenient and whether one of the listed Starwood properties (rates are $179 & $189 for our dates) or another hotel would be best. We won't be spending alot of time in the hotel and usually stay in mid-tier hotels.
Our needs are two beds (preferably queen), under $200 a night, walking distance to the pier and Chinatown-free breakfast would be a plus.
