More About Burlingame, CA Hotels...

Picking the Right Time for Cheap Rates

Many visitors visit Burlingame because it's so close to San Francisco, but doesn't cost as much as the city itself. It's often better to take a look at the goings-on in San Francisco to pick the best time to come to Burlingame because the hotels and accommodations in the suburbs fill up as quickly as city lodgings.

January, February, and March are all excellent times to visit. There are great activities — including Chinese New Year, the arrival of the sea lions, film festivals, book fairs, flower expositions, and Critical Mass for cyclists — and it's also more low-key. Visitors who want to come in spring should book as early as possible, because baseball season finds the entire Bay area packed.

The summer is jam-packed with activities, which makes it a wonderful time to visit as long as there's some planning involved. There are countless arts and crafts festivals along with bay and ocean-based activities, film festivals, and food-related activities. Fall is all about sports such as football and hockey, so it's worthwhile to keep an eye out for home games before booking a trip.

Finding Luxuries for Less

It is not difficult to get an affordable place to stay given the wealth of low-price hotels in Burlingame, even for the more luxurious accommodations. Watch for deals that pop up at opportune times. Although luxury hotels are less expensive in the off-season, it's just as possible to get a deal during the summer or fall.

Compare prices and keep an eye out for changing rates. The idea of staying at the Hyatt House Belmont Redwood Shores or the Embassy Suites at the San Francisco Airport for less than $200 per night might seem out of this world, but it's well within reach.

Getting Close to the Action

Whether the aim is to enjoy Burlingame for itself or to get as close as possible to San Francisco, there are certain spots where the hotels are more affordable. When looking for lodging in Burlingame, CA, it's easy to get a waterfront hotel for mid-range prices while still paying less than $200. Hotels tend to cost less closer to Redwood, however, so it's best to look around Belmont, San Carlos, and similar spots for the lowest prices.

Stunning Sights in Burlingame

Burlingame itself is definitely worth the visit. It's home to many worthwhile sights, and it's a fantastic spot for people with a sweet tooth. There are numerous chocolate and candy companies, such as See's Candies Lollipop Factory, Guittard Chocolate, Nuts for Candy, and the Museum of Pez Memorabilia. Shopping on Broadway and Burlingame Avenues will actually rival what guests find in San Francisco. It's also an artist's haven thanks to Gallerie Citi and Art on the Peninsula.

Getting To and From the Airport

Staying at hotels near the airport is certainly convenient, but it raises the question: "How do I get around?" In this area of California, transportation is easy. In Burlingame service comes from Caltrain, although only on the weekends. BART, or Bay Area Rapid Transit, is a better bet.
