Location and Contact


• Pacific Tradewinds is located in the center of San Francisco, close to North Beach and Chinatown, and only minutes away from Downtown and Union Square.
• From the airport:
• The best way to get to us from the airport is to take BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) directly from the airport. Go to the Airtrain (up escalator) and take the Red line from any terminal to the airport BART station. Take BART to San Francisco (Pittsburg/Baypoint, Richmond, or Fremont bound trains will all stop in San Francisco) and get off at Montgomery Street Station. Walk North up Montgomery Street. Turn left on Sacramento Street. We are on the right. Trip takes about 35 minutes. BART runs from 4am to midnight.
• Or, you can take the bus. Catch the SamTrans bus #292 or #397owl ($1.25). You can also take the KX express bus ($3.50 and no luggage allowed!) from arrivals at the baggage claim level outside terminal 2, or at the curb adjacent to courtyard #4, terminal 3. At the international terminal, Sam Trans buses are located near courtyard G on level 1. Get off the bus at Third and Mission Street. Walk (or take bus #15 $1.25) North (in the same direction as the traffic) on Third Street past Market Street, then continue North on Kearny Street to Sacramento Street, then turn right. We are on the left. Trip takes about 1 hour. Buses run 6am-1am daily (you can see that BART is the more time efficient option!)
• -or-
• Catch one of the many airport shuttle vans (Cost varies from $8-11) on the upper level of the airport on the outer island. Tell the driver you want to go to 680 Sacramento Street, Pacific Tradewinds. Trip takes about 30 minutes. Vans run 24 hours/7 days a week.
• From Greyhound Bus Station (Transbay Terminal):
• Walk North (opposite direction of traffic) on First Street past Market Street, then continue North on Battery Street. Turn left on Sacramento Street. We're about three blocks up on the right. It's about a 15 minute walk.
• From Amtrak Station:
• After getting off the Amtrak Thruway Bus at the San Francisco Ferry Terminal walk across the Embarcadero waterfront road to Justin Herman Plaza. Sacramento Street starts left of the tallest building you will see from the Ferry Building, the Embarcadero Building #4. Walk on Sacramento Street about six blocks to building number 680 on the right.
