There are many good hotels in the area of the Moscone center. I believe the last time I went I stayed at the hilton which is a few blocks away but it was actually a nice walk through the area. Wait until it gets closer they usually have rate packages for the VMworld attendees and it will save you a few bucks or get you a nicer room at a better rate. Enjoy

I stayed at the Palace hotel in 2007. It was about 5 blocks away, it wasn't bad but sometimes during the day it stunk to walk all that way to dump off materials and the such. The hotel was nice and I had no problems there.
In 2009 I stayed at San Francisco Marriott Marquis, its right next to the moscone center, you will have to cross through the Beuna Vista Gardens, no complaints there. Last year they had the labs right in the lower level of this hotel so that made it very convenient. I liked this hotel and I was in it 6 days, I brought the wife last year and she liked how it was close to the Beuna Vista gardens and close to shopping.
This year I am traveling alone so I have yet to decide where to stay again as I like to be close to the restaurants.
I stayed at the King George last year... it was pretty good. The room was bizarre in that the ceiling was REALLY low... wouldn't take you being much over 6 feet tall (I'm 5'10") for you to be uncomfortable. However, it was decent, the service was good and I am not the type of person to spend a whole hell of a lot of time in an hotel, anyway.
The King George has the advantage that it's close to a lot of cool stuff and great places to eat. Close walk to Chinatown, and a middling length but nice walk to the Moscone Center.
Also, the Sugar Cafe is a great place to get breakfast... just a short walk away
Ok, any more Hotel suggestions? I will be registering soon... I wish Vmware would lump the Conference registration in with the Hotel reservation. Does anyone know if they will do this - or at least provide a list of recommended hotels....
In years past VMWare has never lumped the price of the conference and hotel together. I doubt they will go that route this year.
The recommendation of hotels usually comes out later in the year, prolly in June going from years past. This includes a discounted rate for the conference. Its a small discount compared to most hotels normal rates, just from my comparison in the past.
In 2007 I stayed at Serrano Hotel.
The hotel was okay and the walking distance was'nt too far (helps when there is a Starbucks on the way)
One thing that bothers me the most was that they did have a restaurant/place, which means you had
to find a place for breakfast in the morning.
I know some people eat breakfast at the conference, but being european, I'm not really into having cakes and hardboiled egs in the
Last year, I stayed at the Hiltons in the financial district, which was very nice and close to China town.
Also a fair walk to the conference.
