Subject: Re: San Francisco Travel
Hi Rob,

One unfortunate thing about the hotels near the airports in San Francisco and Oakland is that they are along some of the most congested stretches of freeways in the entire Bay Area. I don't know if your planned itinerary allows for this option, but I would suggest that you stay in SF, using public transportation to see the City, Berkeley, Oakland, and any other locations reachable via transit, then rent a car for the days you are exploring other areas.
