I plan on landing in SFO on a Sunday sometime after this summer with my family (9 total including kids) and spending 2 nights in San Francisco area before heading over to Yosemite. I was hoping to find a 4K SPG hotel and take 3 of them a night but cheapest I found is 10K points a night. Was hoping to do same with Hyatt but nothing in cheap range. VRBO for something decent is $400+ a night and they nail you for each additional kid.

Any experience or suggestion where we can stay would be very much appreciated.  Does not have to be in San Francisco proper. Ideally some sort of kitchen is ideal but not a must (would have easily grabbed SPG hotel at 4K even with no kitchen). No set dates yet.

Thank you.
Hyatt House Emeryville is right over the bay bridge and has kitchen.

Yes, I had my eye on that but seems they're not taking points and it's $270 a night (would need 3)
