I'm looking for some info on places to stay in July for family. Me mum is coming up with my niece for a visit and they want to stay in The City in mid July during the week (Tues-Thur, maybe Frida). Mom's retired so she doesn't have a ton of cash, but would like to stay someplace nice not far from the muni/cable car lines. Years ago I remembered staying at a little B&B somewhere near the cable cars, but I can't place where. Any suggestions or advice will be appreciated, including not only accommodations but moderate prices dining nearby as well. I know all the attractions to see, but I've not stayed overnight since the "Man in the Mask" show about a decade or more ago. And since you folks are the locals, figured I'd check to see if you had any ideas. I know it's a little nuts making plans less than a month out in the summer there, but it's her last minute graduation present for my niece. Mom's taking her on a grand tour of the west (after the City they are coming south to spend some time with us, then off to Monterey, then over to Vegas to see my great aunt). I've suggested they get a City Pass which gives them five attractions and unlimited muni/cable car use for their stay for $49 each. My niece has never seen the ocean or the state at all, she's also coming out to check out the art college, she's got an art scholarship and they are putting the hard press on her to sign up. I'm going to meet with them on Friday and drive them around to what they can't get to without a car. Thanks in advance for any advice, if you have specific insider info (don't want to broadcast your best tips, heh) feel free to PM me too.
