The San Francisco Rugby 7s is the seventh time the global event has taken place and is also only the third event to host the men's and women's tournaments.
The first Rugby 7s took place in 1993 and it usually occurs every 4 years. However, the San Francisco tournament was moved to 2018 to fit in with the Olympic cycle - the tournament will resume a once-every-four-years format after.
San Francisco's AT&T Park will host the event. The home of Baseball team the San Francisco Giants, the stadium can hold up to 42,000 spectators.
Due to the high-demand on hotels San Francisco has all-year round, the inclusion of an event results is the demand being even higher.
Ensuring your Rugby World Cup 7s Visit
Finding a hotel at events can be hard, because of the high demand. Hotel Switching allows you to stay in the main area of an event. Hotel switching is where you stay in 2 hotels instead of 1.
Hotel switching can save you as much as 70% on your stay, and it also means you can stay near the action without having to pay more.
“How?” we hear you ask. Well, hotels price their rooms on a nightly basis; switching allows you to stay at a hotel for its cheaper nights and then move to another hotel when your original hotel increases its prices – you only have to switch once.
To stay near the action, you just need to switch to a hotel near your original one. This may prove harder to save overall, but you’ll still save compared to a singular hotel stay.
