I almost bought 49ers season tickets at this stadium and I know the area pretty well. A few quick things....
- The parking situation is brutal and the weekday makes it even worse. If you know you will be driving to the venue you will want to get a parking pass ASAP. As of January 12 I haven't seen them being sold yet. There are a couple on Stubhub, but don't bother.
- As soon as the show was announced the hotels closest to the venue filled up, but there are still a few within walking distance as of now.
- The stadium is in a good area. You are safe walking around no matter the time of day.
Light rail goes right by the stadium so mass transit is an option. If you don't have your parking situation figured out by the day of the show I suggest parking further away along the light rail line. You can't park in the neighborhoods near the stadium. There are signs posted and roadblocks in some places. It's not a good area for street parking and most of the local companies/businesses don't allow stadium parking. Below is a link with info about the light rail service.
