July 23, 2013 Destination North America No Comments Email Email

One of the most striking and prominent features of San Francisco is its waterfront, making it an ideal location for a large boating event.

This summer, guests staying at either of the two Marriott-family South San Francisco hotels can take part in the excitement of the America’s Cup World Series while enjoying complimentary transportation to downtown.gI_89120_Courtyard San Francisco Airport Oyster Point Waterfront

While the waterways of the Bay fill up with competitors jockeying for top honors, so do the parking lots surrounding the observation areas. Fortunately, guests staying at either the Courtyard San Francisco Airport/Oyster Point Waterfront or the Residence Inn San Francisco Airport/Oyster Point Waterfront will have smooth sailing as they board the complimentary shuttle service to downtown available at either SFO Airport hotel.

America’s Cup has a long history of exciting water-based racing. Started in 1851, the tournament pits two yachts against one another: a defender representing the yacht club that most recently won the tournament and a challenger who competes for recognition and to topple the defender. The cup itself is the oldest active trophy in any international sport, adding further intrigue to the competition.

San Francisco holds the honor of hosting the 34th America’s Cup. Taking place in San Francisco Bay, the event runs Aug. 21-26, 2013. Boat lovers can also catch the action of the Louis Vuitton Cup, which is scheduled to take place between now and Sept. 1. This event is used to help determine which yacht club has the honor of challenging a defender in upcoming events. The America’s Cup Finals will be held Sept. 7-21.

In addition to the exciting boating action, the event also features notable live musical acts, including The Wallflowers, Counting Crows, Weezer, San Francisco Symphony, 311, Sublime, Jonas Brothers and Heart. After a day of boating action, there is nothing quite like world-class music to help attendees sail into the evening.

After the boats cross the finish line, guests can hop on the shuttles on Friday and Saturday and return to either the Courtyard San Francisco Airport/Oyster Point Waterfront or the Residence Inn San Francisco Airport/Oyster Point Waterfront. Both hotels in San Francisco offer guests the customary service and comfort expected at a Marriott-family hotel. Guests can relax in the renovated rooms and stylish luxury of the Courtyard San Francisco Airport hotel featuring the new Bistro that serves delicious breakfast and dinner choices. Visitors also may elect to stay at the Residence Inn, which offers spacious guest rooms designed for extended-stay comfort and complimentary breakfast each morning.

Regardless of what hotel guests choose, they can be rest assured knowing they can avoid the hustle and bustle of parking near the America’s Cup event. Reserve a room today at either the Courtyard San Francisco Airport/Oyster Point Waterfront or the Residence Inn San Francisco Airport/Oyster Point Waterfront and take advantage of complimentary transportation to the event.
