Parking at the Host Hotel

Parking around the hotel can be extremely difficult weekdays and on Saturday. Please remember that during these times street parking is limited to one or two hours - you cannot simply continue to feed the meter beyond this limit without risking a ticket. Hotel guests park for $30 a day, and receive in-and-out privileges. Others may park at the hotel for $18 up to 5 hours, with no in-and-out. Validate your parking ticket at the Stompede registration desk.

Public Transportation

The Holiday Inn and Regency Center are served by MUNI bus north-south lines 19, 47 and 49; and east-west lines 1, 2, and 3 (with the 38 not too far away). These lines all pass near BART stations. And the hotel is located at the terminus of the California Street cable car line. MUNI information here.


Getting to the Castro from the hotel by public transit is fairly easy. Here's how!

  • Cross Van Ness from the hotel and find a bus stop.
  • Take MUNI bus #47 or #49 down Van Ness.
  • The fare is $2.75, exact change. Collect a transfer, good for 2 hours.
  • Get off at Market Street.

Now you have two choices:

  • Slower but prettier:
  • Find the bus stop island on Market Street (north side)
  • Take an F-line trolley west (towards Twin Peaks). Sometimes a bus will replace the trolley.
  • Go to the end of the line at Jane Warner Plaza, 17th & Castro & Market


  • Fast and efficient:
  • Go underground. This is the Van Ness Station.
  • Show your transfer to the station attendant for entry.
  • Take the K, L, or M MUNI Metro outbound.
  • Go two stops to Castro Station. You are at Castro & Market.

Shuttle Bus Information

We are pleased to offer bus service for Stompede registrants between the Holiday Inn and Sundance Saloon on Thursday and Sunday nights. The trip usually takes about 20 to 30 minutes. This schedule is subject to the whims of San Francisco traffic. Note also that California law requires that we give our drivers a break, and we have attempted to time these breaks to minimize any inconvenience.
