三藩市之行,住宿的安排是一個令我們好頭痛的問題,因為我們要安置自駕遊的汽車。在三藩市市區內,好多酒店都好貴,就算有停車場,收費都不便宜。當時,我只懂把目標轉去橋對面,勇士主場所在的城市 Oakland。不過,對面岸的酒店也不便宜,而且是 Oakland 的市中心區,也是市中心,而且來回要過橋,不化算。 之後,由熟熟地地方的 Brother-in-Law 給意見,我們把目標轉移都三藩市南部的衛星城市。細心找,我們在一個名叫 South San Francisco 的城市,也是三藩市機場的所在地,找到這一間有 car park 的酒店,名字叫《Hotel Focus SFO》。 來的時間是晚上,drop off 了家人在酒店的 reception 門口,我便駒車前往酒店 complex 內的露天 car park。酒店佔地雖大,但因為酒店旁是高壓電纜,而且電纜的巨柱就在座落在酒店的停車場,所以,大空地,只能夠做 car park。此外,別以為泊車免費,酒店收左我$8 美金一天的停車費。 那天大家都疲倦了,所以一辦好入住,全人類都立即入房。因為是大城市,土地問題,房的空間比起之前一晚的 motel 實在地小,但設施配套,相對起來,就比較齊全。 我本人逗留得最多的地方,其實是 reception,因為辦理入住,辦理停車場,拿地圗,問旅遊資訊,房間修理 (我們房燒左個燈膽),都是由服務態度110分的 reception 員工處理,更好的,是日班同夜班的工作人員,都十分之友善。 兩天,我都有在 reception 處理當天的行程,而 reception 有航班的資訊。畢竟,這酒店好近三藩市國際機場,有住客就是在三藩市玩完,住在這酒店,之後,由酒店方代叫的士,一早去機場。 我們選這酒店的原因,是因為這酒店包早餐。早餐,其實只是無限量供應的 cereal、咖啡、麵包及奶茶。 早上,酒店內的所以住客的聚集在早餐的地方,那時候才知道,這酒店幾乎晚晚都會 full house,而且我們留意到,大部份的住客都同我們一樣,是自駕遊的旅客。 我的簡單早餐,就是一杯咖啡,一份 cereal,第一天的早上,沒吃那麼多,而第二天的早上,因為大家要爭取時間駒車回西雅圖,我們一早就打算食到飽,在路途中,全程輕食為主,而我,在臨離開三藩市的一天,吃上了4碗的 cereal。 說酒店地方大,只有那 car park 大,算是對了一半,我在早餐後在酒店的前前後後行了一圈,我發現酒店原來有一個後花園,在仲夏的日夜,在 garden 中噗噗啤酒,看看天,看看遠處的飛機升降,應該是一件幾 relax 既事。 兩天的住宿,感覺可以。

We have been staying at various SFO airport hotels while visiting family who live in the area. Since we're not spending much time in the rooms, we have been going for economy pricing. This hotel was inexpensive for June in San Francisco, but that's one of the few positive things I can say about it. Parking is $10, and there...

Stayed here for one night only before an early morning flight out of SFO. Looks a bit dilapidated, but nothing in particular wrong with that. Room was basic but clean. We left early so did not take breakfast. Air con rather old and noisy, but this was resolved by switching it off. A decent star.

I was very fortunate to meet Claudia Gales during my check in. There was some technical issues initially, but Claudia overheard my ordeal and came right through for me. She worked with Alba and Indy and got me a nice suite. My stay there was fabulous. I will continue to stay at Focus whenever I'm visiting the area.
