Sir Francis Drake Hotel
Union Square, San Francisco, CA

This meeting, open to all, provides attendees with the unique opportunity to expand their knowledge and expertise by participating in activities of it's Substation Committee and numerous Working Groups and Task Forces.


The Sir Francis Drake Hotel on Union Square is a threshold to the thriving cultural center for which San Francisco is so well known: artists, theatres, galleries, gourmet restaurants, musicians and locals.  The Sir Francis Drake Hotel is an historic, sophisticated hotel and a vibrant gathering spot at the center of all the city's goings-on, whether it be a stop on the Powell Street cable car line, or around the corner from shopping destinations like Tiffany & Co, Gucci, Prada, Giorgio Armani, Coach, Betsey Johnson and Louis Vuitton, as well as North Face, Niketown and the flagship Levi's. Right next door to this distinctive hotel where a beefeater greets you daily (see above photo), is Saks Fifth Avenue, with Neiman Marcus and Macy's just a block away.

San Francisco is an easy city to get around, with major landmarks in close proximity to each other. The Sir Francis Drake Hotel's central location means ready access to favorite spots like Chinatown, Moscone Center, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Financial District. Also easily accessible are destinations such as the Embarcadero along the waterfront, AT&T Park (home of the San Francisco Giants), North Beach, Telegraph Hill and Coit Tower, and the ever-popular Fisherman's Wharf.

Primary Host Utility is "Pacific Gas & Electric"

Special room rate is $189 for single or double-occupancy, with cut-off date at March 17, 2008.
