Good general sites for booking accommodation:

Los Angeles - 2nd - 4th April 2017

Suggested Neighbourhood - Downtown Santa Monica

San Francisco - 5th - 7th April 2017

Suggested Neighbourhoods - Union Square, Financial District, Downtown. Areas to avoid - Tenderloin, Mid-Market

We will organise a bus to take you to and from meetings during your time in San Francisco and Silicon Valley. The bus will depart from a central downtown location each morning.

Note: the Tenderloin neighbourhood is located next to downtown San Francisco (a few blocks west of Union Square) and is a high crime area. It may be best to book accommodation east of Taylor Street and north of 6th Street.

New York - 10th & 11th April 2017

Suggested Neighbourhood - Union Square, Times Square, Fashion District

Hotels in New York can be very expensive, it is a great place to use Airbnb as you will find accommodation in central areas.
