My 2 children(16 & 18) and I are planning our first trip (3 nts.) to SF. We are used to staying is newer, larger hotels. I have read a lot about the homeless, tenderloin district, etc. and this makes me feel rather uneasy about staying right downtown. I am seriously thinking about staying in Burlingame. There is one hotel there that has consistently high ratings. They provide free transportation to and from Bart. How hard is it really to get back and forth to SF if we decide to stay in Burlingame? Other hotels that we are considering include Hotel Drisco, Inn at Union Square and Holiday Inn Express at FW.
I would really appreciate your thoughts.
