MIssion, SOMA, South Beach, Yerba Buena, Potrero Hill, Dogpatch, Bernal Hts, or Glen Park. Commute times will vary from day to day, but being on the south side of the city helps a LOT. Crossing town, especially market st adds a lot of time.
I suggest you drive it a couple of times before making the call, and if it seems too much both Burlingame and San Mateo have vibrant downtown areas with restaurants and shops, although the feel is different than the city.

Potrero Hill would be one of the easiest neighborhoods to commute from as freeway access is so darn close. You might also consider SOMA and South Beach as they are both close to the freeway as well. As a suburban option, Burlingame is beautiful and has an upscale downtown area that is as charming as it is walkable.
Also, I know a great rental agent if you are looking for someone to assist you. Good luck!
