Getting to Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco from San Francisco International Airport is a snap. A taxi ride costs about $45 and can take 40 to 90 minutes, depending on traffic. Public transportation is a cheaper and quicker option. Hop on a Bay Area Rapid Transit train from the airport (trains arrive every 15 minutes) to the Powell Street stop, which is a three-minute walk from the Five-Star hotel. The train takes about 30 minutes to get downtown, and costs a little more than $8.
If you are coming from Oakland International Airport, it’s a simple trip across the bay. A taxi ride up the Nimitz Freeway and over the San Francisco Bay Bridge should run about $60. But we recommend taking the rapid transit train — it’s cheaper and usually faster. From the airport you can take a $3 AirBART bus to the Coliseum/Oakland Airport BART stop. The bus, which picks up between Terminals 1 and 2, runs daily about every 10 minutes from 5 a.m. to midnight from Monday to Saturday, and 8 a.m. to midnight on Sundays and holidays. Ride the BART train to the Powell Street stop. The BART train costs just $4 and takes about 30 minutes.
