Register online or call the hotel at 1-650-692-9100 and mention SPLC 2009.

If you plan to arrive by airplane, plan to take advantage of the hotel’s free shuttle from the San Francisco International Airport. To get to the shuttle, go to the airport’s second floor—the departure level—and follow the shuttle signs. (Please note that the Marriott and Hyatt share a shuttle, so both names will appear on the vehicle.) And once you’re at the hotel, getting to downtown San Francisco is a short and easy trip via the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) system.

About San Francisco

San Francisco is often called "Everybody’s Favorite City," a title earned by its scenic beauty, cultural attractions, diverse communities, and world-class cuisine. Measuring 49 square miles, this very walkable city is dotted with landmarks like the Golden Gate Bridge, cable cars, Alcatraz, and the largest Chinatown in the United States. A stroll of the City’s streets can lead to Union Square, the Italian-flavored North Beach, Fisherman’s Wharf, the Castro, Japantown, and the Mission District, with intriguing neighborhoods to explore at every turn.

The City is home to world-class theatre, opera, symphony and ballet companies and often boasts premieres of Broadway-bound plays and culture-changing performing arts. San Francisco is one of America’s greatest dining cities. The diverse cultural influences, proximity of the freshest ingredients and competitive creativity of the chefs result in unforgettable dining experiences throughout the city.
