Lodging

San Francisco and Oakland are very diverse cities.  The suburbs – including areas such as Walnut Creek, may have cheaper hotel rates, but the commutes will be significantly longer.  Lodging choices include a sampling of hotels that focus on San Francisco and Oakland options which are near direct lines of public transportation to the Mission District/ODC.   You may check Expedia or similar travel sites for possible lower lodging rates.
