Looking for a San Francisco hotel where we can stay & then leave our car until we return from a cruise. Any suggestions?
I do not know of any in the city, but the Best Western El Rancho Inn in Millbrae (near the airport) has been doing this for years. You get free two weeks parking for a night's stay, and $7 per night after that. Also free 24-hour shuttle. They are very efficient.
Hotels in the city do not have enough land for car storage.Edited: 11:22 am, December 30, 2014
As already mentioned, El Rancho is a good option for Park'n Fly, but not so much for "Park 'n Cruise". The hotel shuttle goes to the airport, not the cruise pier. The cruise piers are quite a distance away and getting there from Millbrae could eat up much of your parking savings. Wish I had a better suggestion for you, but it's a common question both here and on Cruise Critic and I've never seen a good alternative.

Depending upon how long you're gone, this statement isn't true. A cab from the Airport to the pier would be about $50. Public transit about $12 per person.
You take the shuttle to the airport and then either the taxi or BART (public transit) to the pier.

The issue of getting to the port is probably not as complicated as it is in LA. As White Dahlia said, a cab from the Airport, or from the hotel in Millbrae, for that matter, to the cruise port would be about $50. One could also take the free shuttle from El Rancho to the Airport and then take BART to the cruise port, or very near it. I thik the BART far into the city is about $8.25 or so.
