Odds are good I'll be sleeping in SFO in a couple of weeks' time, before a flight to YVR, upon which I'll go directly to work.

Not wanting to look too dishevelled, and not generally trusting myself to get up for flights at that time in a hotel, is there:

a) suggestions on where to sleep there? b) public showers? (not in club lounges)

There needs to be a database of this kind of thing for airports all over the world... – David M Sep 19 '12 at 14:24

According to Sleepinginairports:

Showers - Location: Freshen' Up International Terminal - landside, level G, Main Hall. Hours: 7:00am - 11:00pm. Fee: $15 for the Deluxe Shower (30 minute shower + 15 minute massage chair with towel, soap, shampoo, lotion, shower shoes, and a hairdryer if required) / $ 8 for the Standard Shower (20 minute shower with soap and towel provided).

Sleeping - Best sleeping spot Ive found so far is a lounge in Terminal 2 near Baggage Claim #4, with two padded benches each of which is big enough for you and the one you love.

Sleeping In Airports has reviews from people regarding the best places to sleep.

The only public showers are at "Freshen Up" the international terminal. From the SFO website :

Shower facilities are available at Freshen Up! located on the Departures/Ticketing Level of the International Terminal, near the entrance to Gates G91-G102. Freshen Up! is open daily from 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. For additional information call 650.877.0798.
