When visiting San Francisco we stay at The Argonaut in Fisherman's Warf area. No rental car needed, all in walking distance. This year we traveled South on spectacular PCH (Pacific Coast Hwy) to San Diego. Argonaut has become outrageously expensive over the years, including overnight parking. In the boom dot.com era I used to stay on the Valley, so I convinced my wife to forget The Argonaut. As you can see from my other reviews, I become financially responsible abandoning the ultra expensive downtown hotels in favor of equally nice suburbs modern hotels. Hilton here I come! It was excellent! Clean, quiet, good breakfast, pool, nice canal community just behind hotel, shops and restaurants not far away and 20 min driving to San Francisco downtown. However, a car to park San Francisco downtown is both challenging and indecently expensive. Anyway, we know SF by heart already and focused on places with free street parking like Art Palace, parks, Embarcadero area, land's end, just as a SF refresher. I picked San Mateo for two more reasons. First because I listen over the Internet to Jazz FM 91.1 Bay Area ( same name, same frequency like in my home town). Secondly because I LOVE so much the hwy 92 from San Mateo to Half Moon Bay over the mountain. I love so much driving topless ( I mean my rental convertible top down ... not what you imagined:)) this beautiful road. So let's start the PCH adventure; next step Carmel at Svendsgaard's Inn.
