Join us at the Hilton San Francisco Financial District for Alvaro Castagnet’s workshop. The Hilton is located near North
Beach (Little Italy), Union Square, Chinatown, shops, restaurants, galleries and a quick taxi to the Wharf and most
painting locations. This location is best for students arriving without a car as the taxi’s run often and will drop us off and
pick us up on location. It is more convenient and affordable than finding available 2-hr parking meters. You can always
rent a car when you get there, if you want to take an excursion and do some sightseeing. Parking at the hotel is $30 per
day for overnight guests only. If you are commuting, you probably understand the parking situation and can make
accommodations for your week. Guest room amenities include down-filled comforters and down pillows, alarm clock
radio featuring an MP3 connection, a flat screen HDTV, drip coffee maker, laptop size safe, iron and ironing board,
wireless and wired high-speed internet, two telephones, hair dryer, and lighted magnifying mirror. Request the Art in
the Mountains rate of $239, plus tax, for King or double Queen room. Let me know if you would like me to try to find
a roommate for you to reduce costs. WE LOVE THIS HOTEL!
