His first stop will be at the Fairmont Hotel that evening for two fundraisers for Sen. Barbara Boxer. For those keeping count, last time he was in town overnight he stayed at the InterContinental Hotel.
It is the president's first visit to the Bay Area since a trip in October for another Democratic fundraiser.
Then on Wednesday, his motorcade will make its way across the Bay Bridge en route to Fremont, where Obama will be touring a Solyndra plant that produces solar panels.
That visit should kill a number of policy birds with one stone -- Solyndra received a $535 million loan guarantee through Obama's stimulus bill, the Economic Recovery Act, creating 1,000 "green collar" jobs.
The president, and his attendant traffic headaches, will be out of town by noon Wednesday.
