Frequently Asked Questions

1. Is pick-up service available from our hotel?

Complimentary pick-up from your hotel is available from most San Francisco hotels. We also provide complimentary pick up from San Francisco Airport area hotels (Millbrae, South San Francisco, Burlingame, San Bruno). Unfortunately, we do not provide pick-up service for guests staying in the East Bay, Silicon Valley or North Bay. However, we can recommend you take BART (if from the East Bay) or CALTRAIN (if from Silicon Valley) into San Francisco, and from there arrange a pick-up within San Francisco. For further details, please contact our reservations line at 866-345-8687 or 415-345-8687.
