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 
bothering with 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 to check for late cancellations and 
ask reservations to be put on the "IEEE802 Wait-List".

The IEEE 802 special rate at the Holiday Inn Financial District is 
$139.00/night, but some additional web deals may also be 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".
