Our wedding venue is roughly 20 minutes north of San Francisco (SFO) airport, which is the best access point for our wedding. However, Oakland (OAK) isn't too far if you're willing to brave occasional bridge traffic. We strongly recommend you take Lyft to get around the city For the stubborn and brave, both airports have car rental facilities on site.
If you still don't have accommodation yet, please email us directly! Our room block at the Marriott is full, but we have other options.
We had a room block at the Marriott Courtyard San Francisco located at 299 2nd Street San Francisco. The wedding rate was $199 per night for Friday and Saturday. We've heard that some people are unable to book the rate when you call them directly. You can book using this link . We've had less luck calling the hotel, but if you prefer to do it that way, you may call the hotel directly at 415-947-0700 and mention the Rogers / Borker wedding to get the rate. If you have any issues, please contact us!
As the birthplace of Lyft and Uber, you'll find both apps easy and convenient to use. We recommend Lyft, given all of the hooplah with Uber. Go to the app store on your phone and download the apps - they'll make it easy to get around. If you've actually never used it before you can get a free $10 credit by using the code RYAN480805. Or just get someone else's code, but again Lyft is easiest here. SFO to the hotel will be ~$25-$35 depending on the time of day. It's also the easiest way between the venue, welcome drinks, and the hotel. Each way should be $5-$10, less if you ride with others! Public Transportation is also accessible to the Pearl, if you take the above ground rail down Third Street after walking from the hotel. Finally, you could rent a car, however, we expect parking to be a nightmare for you. Split a Lyft instead!
Depending on when you're coming in, there's hundreds of things to do in San Francisco. From iconic spots like the Golden Gate Bridge, the Ferry Building, Chinatown and Fisherman's Wharf to expeditions further afield in Santa Cruz / Monterey or northward to Napa and Sonoma, you won't be bored if you go exploring. You can of course look at hundreds of different blogs and sites for recommendations, but we figured we'll start you off with a few of our favorite spots. There's also a bunch of sites by your hotel!
