I am thinking about attending a conference at the San Jose Convention Center in July. I can almost halve the hotel cost if I use Hot Wire, but I will be further away from the convention center. There are evening events on Friday and Saturday nights until about 9 or 10.
How safe is the light rail/buses/streets at night for a single woman?
Should I just suck it up and get a room at one of the hotel nearest the convention center?
