Discovering Disney ~ and Beyond!

Written in cooperation with Hipmunk’s Boutique Hotel Campaign 2016.

The state of California is vast, and encompasses one amazing site after another. For many, San Francisco is the bomb. The architecture, the stunning vistas from nearly everywhere in the city, the restaurant scene, the Embarcadaro, and Alcatraz offer just a few reasons for its popularity. Days or weeks could be spent touring it all.

Embassy Suites San Francisco Airport Waterfront

One thing San Francisco also has is a lot of very expensive hotels. If the city by the bay is your choice for your California dream vacation, consider staying near the airport. This city has a wonderful array of transportation options. By choosing a hotel near the airport, such as the Embassy Suites San Francisco Airport Waterfront, you will receive suites, many with water views, and all the amenities expected of the Embassy Suites hotel group, while being just a short ride from the city on BART. Before a full day of touring, enjoy a free, cooked to order, breakfast and return to enjoy a dip in the pool before retreating to your comfortably appointed room.
