Hotel & Travel

Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help you make travel arrangements.

For those interested in taking advantage of it, we have arranged a special room rate at the Intercontinental Hotel San Francisco, Bradley & O'Doherty Wedding, room block code: BOW. Please contact Mark Saladino (Tel: +1 415 616 6968) if you have any technical difficulties booking. Note that this is a different hotel from the Intercontinental Mark Hopkins.

If the Intercontinental does not meet your needs, please let us know and we would be happy to help you make other arrangements. Hotels in San Francisco can vary considerably in quality so we are available to make recommendations if you need them.

We expect hotel rooms will become harder to find and more expensive starting on Monday the 16th, due to a convention being held in San Francisco. This is something to consider when making your travel plans, especially if you planning to make a vacation out of your trip.

If you are visiting from out of town, we hope you will have time to explore San Francisco and the Bay Area. Let us know if you would like recommendations. Some of our favorites are listed below.

San Francisco has a variety of public transit options, plus taxis and car services. If you are staying only in the the city, you may not need a rental car. The most important public transit to know about are BART and MUNI. All public transit (trains, trams, buses, cable-cars, ferries and more) can be paid for with a "Clipper Card". Clipper cards are available at BART stations, Walgreens, Ferry Building and many other locations. Also, note that Google Maps also provides excellent transit directions on your smartphone.


The ceremony is at 1:00 pm at St Teresa of Avila Catholic Church on Potrero Hill. Street parking is usually available within a block or two of the church. The church does not have its own parking lot.

The church is at the corner of 19th and Connecticut Streets. An accessible entrance is located to the right of the main front steps, on the side of the church facing the garden.

Potrero Hill can be steep so be ready if you are walking or parking! On a clear day, there are amazing views of the City and the Bay!


The reception will be at Delancey Street Restaurant's Club Room, at the corner of Embarcadero and Brannan. The Muni T and N lines stop right outside the restaurant. Metered street parking is available on The Embarcadero and there are two public (pay) parking lots on Brannan within a block or two of the restaurant. Please note that although valet parking is available for the main restaurant, it is not available for the reception.

For the entrance to the Club Room, look for the gated entry along The Embarcadero, past the corner with Brannan. Someone will be there to direct you to the Club Room on the third floor. The Club Room is fully accessible.

Kids are most welcome! If your kid will need a high chair or a booster seat for the reception, please let us know.

San Francisco weather in April is usually highs in the mid to upper 60s during the day and lows in the 50s during the evening. Bring a jacket!


Your presence with us is gift enough. We live in a small apartment without a lot of space, so we have opted out of a traditional housewares wedding registry. We love exploring in the outdoors and have registered for a few things at REI. We have also listed a few things at Simple Registry. Some of the items we have registered for are for our Hawaii honeymoon!

Things to do

... in San Francisco

Art musems
SF MOMA is near the hotel. The de Young and Legion of Honor are also great. Check their websites for special exhibitions.
Ferry Building
A great place for weekend mornings! Saturday morning there is a huge farmers market. Lots of great local food and shops inside.
Golden Gate Park
Massive park with museums, 2 windmills, gardens, etc. The California Academy of Sciences, Conservatory of Flowers, and de Young art musem are all inside the park.
Cable Car museum and Power House
You can ride a cable car up to the museum and see how the cable cars are powered (hint: it involves cables).
Coit Tower
Good views of the city and the bay on clear days. There are great 1930s labor murals inside the building. On the way to the tower, you can walk up the Filbert Street Steps and maybe see some of the wild parrots of Telegraph Hill.
Golden Gate Park National Recreation Area
Walk along Ocean Beach or on the cliff trails overlooking the bay and the Golden Gate Bridge.

... in the Bay Area

Cat Town
The first cat cafe in the US! Across the Bay in Oakland. We adopted Nutmeg from Cat Town. =^..^=
Muir Woods
The closest place to see Coastal Redwoods. There are bus tours available from San Francisco. There is also nice hiking in the Marin Headlands.
Big Sur
2-3 hours south of San Francisco. Beautiful coastal drives and hiking. Nearby Monterey and Carmel are also fun to visit. All of the state parks in this area are fantastic, but Point Lobos State Reserve is special and a great place to see sea otters!
Amazing! Nothing like it in all the world! A 3-4 hour drive from San Francisco. Check the park website or Caltrans website for information about road closures and tire chain requirements. We like stopping at Yosemite Bug for a home-cooked meal or a soak in the hot tub.
Wine country. Many of these areas survived devastating fire damage last year, so it's necessary to check on the current operating status before planning a trip out here.
