Beach or City in Haifa?

We are planning to stay in Haifa for 3 nights and are not sure whether it's advisable to stay near the beaches or within the city. What are the recommended locations?

When will you be staying in Haifa (what month)? If you are interested in touring the city by food or Carmelit then the city is the best place, but if you are using Haifa as a place to stay and tour than the beach is better. In the city there may be a parking problem, although most hotels have indoor parking lots, they can fill up.

If you are using Haifa as your base for touring the North, think again. Upper Galilee is a much better base for touring Galilee and the Golan Heights.

Where are you planning on touring while using Haifa as a base. Due to traffic getting in and out of the city there may be better places.

We are not sure where we'll go. We may take a day driving up north. We plan to spend some time with family who live in Haifa.

We spent a week touring the Galilee and Golan last time. This time we may drive up north for a day but will spend some time with family in Haifa.

If you are just there to relax mostly and visit relatives, the beach hotel is the best choice, the newest and most convenient to get to IMHO.
