Hilton San Francisco Airport Bayfront

“Wine to me is passion. It's family and friends. It's warmth
of heart and generosity of spirit. Wine is art. It's culture. It's the essence
of civilization and the art of living.”
This was the final day of our Road Scholar program. Where did the time go? It would be a bittersweet day---the end …
"California or Bust!"
We had to get up before 4 AM to make our 6:15 flight. The cab driver who picked us up was quite personable and chipper for such an hour---O dark thirty, as a friend describes it. When we arrived at the airport, the Southwest sky cap was very nice and chatty, also---even a UCF fan.
The first leg of our trip …
... the valley side on a peak called glaciers point. Problem was we had very little petrol station and not time to drive all the way down to the station to fill up. Like a top gear challenge we decided let's just gun it up there and worry about the petrol later. The road in the stang with the roof down was brilliant. Because they have a two Lane one way road system, we used it like a race track and occasionally blasting out our latest toy: our Dixie horn sound clip on ...
... Rolling on the sidewalk and hooting, sitting on the sidewalk trying to punch the knees of passers by, shouting at street furniture, standing in the road singing loudly, talking to yourself or walking in circles with starey eyes are not normal types of behaviour elsewhere but are are unexceptional in SF. In the past we thought the warnings on cups 'Warning. Contents may be hot' or on peanut packets, 'Caution may contain nuts' were ridiculous but since ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHilton San Francisco Airport Bayfront Burlingame
The Hilton Bayfront was a very nice hotel in Burlingame. Our room was pleasant and comfortable. The restaurant was quite good. We really liked the free shuttle to and from the airport. The down side was being far away from all the action in San Francisco. We were only there for one night at the beginning of our tour and one night at the end but I think tourists who want to DO San Francisco would want to be closer in.
