San Francisco Airport at Night

By air

San Francisco International Airport is 14 miles (22.5 km) from the hotel. Taxis to downtown San Francisco from the airport take 20 - 30 minutes at a cost of around $40 - $65 or you can hop on the BART train from the airport, which stops at Civic Center (two minutes from the hotel). You can also take BART trains to and from Oakland International, changing at Coliseum station. Oakland is 19 miles (30km) from the hotel. Taxis to downtown San Francisco from the airport take 35 - 60 minutes at a cost of around $50 - $70.

By rail

Other than local BART services, San Francisco is not well served by trains. However, Amtrak’s Coast Starlight train runs from Los Angeles in the south up to Seattle in the north, and on to Vancouver, British Columbia. Widely regarded as one of the most spectacular train routes in the USA – from the snow-covered peaks of the Cascade mountains to the shorelines of the Pacific Ocean, the Starlight calls at Oakland for connections to and from San Francisco.
