cruise hotels/parking in san francisco

Recommended Posts

I have been searching for 2 days trying to find a hotel with a cruise shuttIe  for an 11 day cruise..Miracle..or a parking lot with a shuttle to the ship. I hope ya'll can help me cause I am lost.

 

I am willing to stay near San Francisco and drive in the day of the cruise..may 11th. I just can't find a parking lot with a shuttle.

Hotels in San Francisco don't have shuttles, I doubt any parking lots do either.

 

Let's start at the beginning.

 

Where are you coming from? Your profile says "Texas", but I doubt you are driving in from TX.

I agree with your overall point, but they do offer parking. Its just that its going to be $65-75 a night and extra for an SUV. Not at all worth it if it can somehow be avoided.

SUV parking anywhere in the SF Bay area is going to be expensive.  You might want to explore out around San Ramon, Dublin, and Livermore.  There won't be any shuttles but UBER, car service, or even BART would be an option.  Travel from that far out isn't that bad (time wise) depending on time of day and if you don't want to stay in the City hotels will be cheaper out that far.

If it were me I would look around Livermore then UBER into the City and spend a few nights.   UBER back after debarkation to Livermore shouldn't be more than 45 minutes if there's no crashes.  We just drove SF to Stockton after a weekend in the City on a Sunday in 80 minutes, which even amazed us.  If you don't mind going a little further out there should be plenty of SUV parking in Tracy.  

Something else to consider is parking out in Tracy or Manteca and doing a one way car rental into the city.  Then do the reverse back.  We did that a couple of times and the O/W rental from Stockton to SFO and back was about $100 each way.  For a three week trip that was much cheaper than parking near the airport.  There's a couple of rental car agencies within walking distance of the cruise port.

thank you for the replies. Yes, I am driving in from near Houston, texas since I don't fly. My husband also uses a scooter which makes my search a little harder. Is parking at the airport and then using transportation the could load our bags and his scooter an option?

Yes-- Uber has purpose built accessible options that you can use that will accomodate the scooter or wheelchair.

Yes. It is probably the better option. That will run you around $13-15 per day. Downtown parking could cost you double that easily.

As stated, long-term parking is readily available near the airport.  Search online, some will even have a AAA discount.  

 

Some hotels in Burlingame or Millbrae offer a stay-n-park for up to 7+ days.

There are several hotels out by the airport that offer Park & Fly/Cruise packages.  I know both the Hilton ES and the Marriott south of the airport do.  You would have to call and see if they can accommodate an SUV.  There are also a couple of private parking lots and garages near the airport.  We have used one that even detailed our car while we were gone.

thank you all. I made a reservation at Hampton Inn in Burlingame that offers the park and stay package. Very reasonable.
