    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. Whether you're looking for a cheap California hotel deal or a lavish resort where the sky is the limit, Expedia has hotels in California you'll want to stay in.

    "Beautiful, clean ,near all public transportation!"
    Loved the hotel and the staff. They gave us a free room upgrade so we were on the 19 th floor. Had a nice view of the city. Yes, we could hear some noise from the city, but it is to be expected if you stay in the middle of the city. we were treated very well. Didn't buy the internet package, we were on vacation. Didn't need it! They gave us a complimentary pass to the fitness center. That was very nice, but we were just to busy exploring the city to use it. All I can say is this hotel is very, very nice. They made us feel very welcomed, were very helpful and made you feel special. Its location is near all the major forms of transportation, the cable cars, public transit ect. Rooms were very clean!!! I felt very safe walking from Union Square to the hotel. We did not rent a car. You can get all over their city using their transit system! Loved everyday we spent there. would go back again.

    Loved the view from my room (28th floor) and from the top of the tower where there is a lounge bar (40th floor). They offered an upgrade on our room for very little extra and it was well worth it. The concierge was especially helpful.

    "Terrific Hotel in the Gaslamp Quarter"
    Wonderful old style hotel that has all the modern amenities. It is conveniently located to the Gaslamp Quarter and is on the busline direct to the airport. The waterfront and Little Italy are all within easy walking distance. They also provide free bike usage on a first come first serve basis which alllows for even more capability to explore the downtown area. Breakfast is not included but there is a very good coffee and pastry shop right next door if you are so inclined.

    "Great for Families"
    Once you get used to the sprawling lay-out of the facilities, it is pretty easy to navigate your way around. It isn't like a traditional property where everything is in one building, in fact almost everything is in 'another building'. But with 2 pools to choose from, large outdoor hot tub, well equipped gym / spa, and a variety of room formats to choose from, it makes from an entertaining stay. It was also half the rate of the other properties available at the time of our travel which was over a long weekend.
