We are in San Fransisco for three days/five night in early May, then have a few days leisure to explore the area and drive to Reno to visit family before zipping back to fly home Vancouver. We've been advised not to rent a car while in the city, so will rent only when we've left. First, I'd appreciate any accommodation tips. We like typical mid-range chain hotels and would prefer to pay not much more than $100 per night but I realize that this San Fransisco and we may need to pay more than that, closer to $150.00. I checked airport hotel prices and they were in that range. Where we stay isn't important, so long as it is decent and transit access it good. Second, I'd like any tips of what to do. We'll probably take a city tour and other than that, just walk the city and see what we can in three days. We're not big on museums and restaurants, and Chinatown and Fisherman's Whorf may not be at the top of our list, given that we live in Vancouver.
