Which is a better base to do day trips from? Bilbao- I mean.

Agreed, since there are day trips west of Bilbao and east of San Sebastian (France) and south of both, it really depends on where you want to go on your day trips, and which town you prefer to spend your nights in.
As much as I really love Bilbao, San Sebastian would be my first pick, with a couple nights' stay in Bilbao (as discussed in another recent thread).
Or, just split the time... hit Bilbao first, do the western beach cities, then San Sebastian with a day trip to the French side, if you'd like...
Thank you both. Budget is not an issue. I actually have Starwood points for a lovely hotel in San Sebastion. I just don't want to make my base only on the hotel. It sounds like there is plenty to do off of each location.
You might find some of the apartments nicer than even the Maria Cristina, FYI.
But yes, you should be pleased with making either location a base. They're both fine cities.
Cuthbert , so true!
I always cringe when I read posts of a person being able to *do* San Sebastián in a day ;-)
Like posted above...depends on interests and budget ....
