There are three airports within an hour of Cisco:



I recommend renting a car, but some public transportation is available.  Caltrain ( runs between San Francisco and Gilroy via Santa Clara and San Jose.  It works well to get around the peninsula and shares a stop with BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit – that takes people straight from San Francisco Airport to the city or down to the San Jose area.  VTA (, the local version of BART, has a variety of routes throughout the south bay and is a popular way to commute during peak traffic hours.

These hotels offer the Cisco rate to our customers and partners.  In order to receive the Cisco rate, you must mention that you are visiting Cisco.  Only the Hyatt Regency, Santa Clara requires a letter from Cisco  to obtain the Cisco Rate.  If you make your reservations at the Hyatt Regency, please send me your name and check-in/check-out dates and confirmation number and I will follow-up with a letter to the hotel.  It is important to make your reservations directly with the hotel to receive the Cisco rate.
