Going up to San Francisco to see Jeff Tweedy play the Fillmore in December. I'd love some hotel suggestions--not into a splurge for this but I'd like some mid-range choices. Thanks!
Mentioned in this answer:
Hotel Kabuki - a Joie de Vivre Boutique Hotel in Japantown, right nearby the venue
It's the birthplace of AirBNB. Many sub $100. Give it a go. If that's not your cup of tea, the hotels around SoMa are always on Priceline or Hotwire. I've never paid more than $120.
Agree with the AirBnB suggestion. I think it's your best bet. If you do need a hotel, I stayed at the Pickwick Hotel and it was centric and inexpensive.
