We are hoping to spend a long weekend in San Francisco in August and get married on a Monday at City Hall. We were looking at the weekend of August 10-11, but it looks like the Outside Lands
festival is going on that weekend. Is the city going to be crazy that weekend? Will it be hard to find hotels & make restaurant reservations? Will the hotels be more full than usual with partying people? Should we do it the weekend before (August 3-4) instead, or is it likely that there's something else going on that weekend that will make things just as crowded? Any other logistical advice? We are doing a small family wedding - probably 11 people, including us and two small kids. Thanks very much!

Help me choose a hotel in San Francisco, fairly close to Moscone Center - currently reserved at the Clift, but also looking at Good Hotel, Hotel Rex, and Hotel Vertigo. Has anyone stayed at more than one of these that can make a comparison? Thanks..

I've been awarded a fellowship that allows me to go on an international study tour of Sweden and the USA. Metafilter locals, tell me where I should stay in New York, San Francisco and Honolulu. Bonus question: what cafes/ shops/ other places should I check out on my weekends off? Details after the jump... [more inside]

I am helping to plan a trip to San Francisco in September for a doctor from Kenya, for a conference. All the cheaper hotel rooms bought in a block by the conference organizers are taken. Where can he stay relatively cheaply that's not too far from (or too complicated to travel to) the Moscone Center?

SAN FRANCISCO - We are flying into San Francisco (April). Can anyone suggest a good hotel for a couple of days that is easy to get to from the airport without car?

I'm looking for a good inn/hotel within three hours drive of San Francisco where I can have a room with a private hot tub on a deck with a view of the Pacific Ocean. Winter storm vacation!
