    California Hotel Guide

    California's nickname "The Golden State" hails back to the 1849 discovery of gold at Sutter's Mill, just outside of what is now the state capital of Sacramento. The moniker, though, could just as easily refer to the colour of the sun beating down on California's glorious beaches or the colour of the Oscars given out in Los Angeles every year in a televised ceremony watched by a billion people around the globe.

    To people who know and love it, California isn't one state but almost two: Northern California and Southern California. Finding the best California hotel deals in each takes some legwork.

    The misty groves of Northern California are home to the giant Sequoia redwoods, the oldest and tallest living creatures on earth. Napa Valley is one of the premiere wine-making regions in the world.

    Monarch butterflies migrate by the tens of thousands every year at Santa Cruz's Natural Bridges State. John Steinbeck's favourite city, Monterey, features a world-class aquarium, playful otters swimming in the harbour, and Ed (Doc) Ricketts' original laboratory.

    Iconic San Francisco tourist destinations like Golden Gate Bridge, Chinatown, Embarcadero, and Fisherman's Wharf are thrilling to behold. Explore the twisting paths, arboretums, and flowers of the city's Golden Gate Park, or ride a cable car to view Alcatraz Island from the top of Nob Hill.

    Southern California is known for its gorgeous weather, its white-sand beaches, and Los Angeles. LA has first-class museums like the Getty Center, the California Science Center, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

    LA is first and foremost a film industry town. Warner Brothers, Sony Pictures, and Universal all host studio tours where you can view the sound stages where your favourite TV shows are filmed, and maybe even get to talk to a star!

    Closer to the shared border with Mexico, San Diego has a world-class zoo with giant pandas, the SeaWorld theme park, and LEGOLAND for your little engineers.

    How will you fit everything California has to offer into one trip? The secret is to narrow down the must-do attractions and select nearby California hotels. Expedia can help you find California hotel packages and other cheap hotel deals in California close to the centres of action. Go online, enter your criteria, find comfortable rooms at special discount rates and prices, and book your reservations.

    "Beautiful, friendly, great location"
    From the moment we arrived until the time we departed the staff couldn't have been friendlier. The Valets greeted us warmly and told us to give a call 5 minutes before we wanted our car again and they would have it waiting. The young woman at the front desk was friendly and professional asking us about our trip. The room was gorgeous and comfortable and clean. Every detail thought out and beautifully designed. One hour after arriving we had to use our car again and, as promised, the valets had it waiting for us. Unfortunately, we didn't have a lot of time to enjoy all that the Omni offers but have heard from local LA friends that there is a great Beer Garden and concerts in the plaza. We will definitely stay here again. BOOK IT NOW!

    "The Nikko is in an excellent Hotel"
    The Hotel Nikko is in an excellent location, the staff were extremely helpful, and the room was well equipped and very comfortable. I was especially happy about the Valet service and door men. I was able to get my car out quickly a couple of times a day, and they always referred to me by name. I was very impressed with the service. When I called the front desk asking if there was a store in the hotel to buy toothpaste, they said they would bring up some at no charge; and it arrived within 5 minutes! The only area that I think could improve; the conference room was too cold several times, and the coffee and hot water ran out quickly without replacement (I realized later that it would have been extra charge for my group to have unlimited supply of these items, but, Really? Is it that expensive for the hotel to just provide this? Most of us also stayed in the hotel, and purchased many extras; dinners, etc) I think this is an area that could use improvement. Otherwise, great experience. Cindy

    This YMCA which was converted into a residential hotel . As I veiwed the wall photos in my mind I asked myself , was this place hunted with friendly ghost spirits or was it my imagination ? So just to clear my conscious of my question, is the Old YMCA hunted with 1920's guest and staff ?

    "Great experience"
    Everything was great except the shower didn't have curtain or door so water just splashed out on the floor. Luckily we had extra towels. Also the wifi signal was weak on the fifth floor so I had to tether iPad with phone. Room was cozy and ac worked great! Everything was clean with a classy look.
