Would like your help if I may.
My family and I are coming to the States from England for a week in June.
My little boy has got madly into baseball in the last few months and he is desperate to see a big league game.
I'm not sure of our exact dates yet, so I don't know if we can get to a Giants game or an A's game.
My question is: which SF Marriott would you stay at for each ballpark?
Not neccessarily the closest, the quality of the property is important too.
We won't have a car, so proximity is important too.
Thanks for any replies!
I stayed at the Marriott Marquis for games in both SF and Oakland last year. My room looked down at the Giants stadium out the window. The metro works very well in the Bay area. Don't be afraid to use it. I took the metro system (called B.A.R.T.) to games in Oakland and it drops you off at a ramp to the stadium. It is very easy to walk into the Oakland stadium and out to the subway...just walk the ramp! The Marquis is a few blocks from the SF stadium. The only place closer is a Courtyard I think. There are other hotels in the downtown district close to the Marquis that are a little farther to the stadium, but you can take the metro (JW Marriot, Union Square Marriott, Stanford Court Renaissance). Don't forget to ride the trolley cars!
