Airport Transportation:  BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) now has a 
station at the San Francisco International Airport(SFO).  You can 
take BART from the airport to the Embarcadero Station (1 block from 
the hotel) for $4.70 each way.  To get to the Embarcadero Station you 
will need to take the DUBLIN - PLEASANTON TRAIN which leaves from the 
airport every 20 minutes.  There are several different trains and 
routes, so please make sure you get on the right one.  For more 
information and a complete system schedule, please visit:

The downtown area of San Francisco is actually quite compact and 
almost everything of interest is within walking distance.  Since 
parking at the hotel is $38.00 per day, we strongly recommend not 
using a rental car.  Getting around in San Francisco by public 
transportation is very easy and taxicabs are readily available at 
most times.  The California Street Cable Car departs just in front of 
the Hyatt Regency SF (every 5-10 minutes).

The Hyatt Regency San Francisco at the Embarcadero is now completely 
SOLD OUT.  If you do not have reservations yet, you should call the 
Hotel directly at (415) 788-1234 and ask reservations to be put on 
the "IEEE802 Wait-List".

The IEEE 802 special rate at the Holiday Inn Financial District is 
now $139.00/night but some web deals are also available.  There are 
still a limited number of rooms available at the Holiday Inn and this 
is still a great deal, so please make your reservation NOW.  When 
calling the Holiday Inn Financial District, please refer to the group 
code:  IEEE Hyatt overflow.
