Parfaitement située pour visiter San Francisco. Pour ceux qui arrivent en voiture de location et qui doivent la rendre, les agences sont juste en face. Seul bémol, le quartier est quand même passablement bruyant la nuit. (ce qui est somme toute normal vu la situation au "centre ville".

Travel tips...

Attraction tip

Marin area, great for cycling especially if you like a bit of hilly lands.

Where next?

Denver or Chicago by train: take the California Zephyr from Emeryville through the Rockies. It's a long trip but definitely worth it!
