Cruising from San Francisco-Need help...
We've booked the Golden Princess from S.F. in April.
We got good rates flying in to Oakland. Is that recommended?
It looks closer to the pier area than SFO...
Does the ship dock at pier 35? If not, which pier?
Which hotels do you recommend?
On hotwire.com, We found a 4-star hotel
in Embarcadero area for $125 a night..
Any suggestions. We don't want to spend any more than that....
How much for a cab from the Oakland Airport to the pier area?
Thanks in advance for your help.

Cruising from SF
Embarcadero Hotel for $125 is pretty good as Embarcadero is where the ship pier is. Which hotel?
If the price for your flight is a lot less expensive flying into Oakland, go ahead and book it. It will cost you about $10 - $20 more for your taxi ride (depending on traffic) to the San Francisco Pier. Coming from Oakland you will also have to pay the $5 Bay Bridge Toll that you don't have to pay if you fly into San Francisco.
Two other options: Both SFO and Oakland have BART access into the city. Both airports also have Super Shuttle. They charge a flat per person rate with 3 or 4 stops.
What hotel did you get on the Embarcadero? That's a great location and close to your ship. The price you quoted is really good.
