    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.

    "Couldn't be happier"
    Very clean, close proximity to attractions, shops and transport (10 min walk to Macys, 2 mins to Walt Disney Concert Hall, restaurants etc). Loved the bed (finally, a comfortable sleep inducing bed)! Hotel staff - one word... "Amazing". Very helpful and pleasant. Breakfast - buffet downstairs is a feast for a great price. And the coffee! Your lips will savour the taste. Couldn't be happier

    "1920's"
    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 ?

    "Perfect location to do everything"
    We had a great experience, can walk almost everywhere u wanna go and if u get tired just flag a bike taxi down. This is perfect for kids or just the adults. We will go again next year with our kids. The hotel was perfect; clean, professional, private and plenty of room to roam.

    "Twice now!"
    This is the second time I've stayed at the Sofia Hotel and you just can't have it better. Great location, walking distance to everywhere in Gaslamp and the train station. Great food places near by too. Staff and hotel bar great too. Love the old fashion decor as well in the rooms. I will be making a 3rd, 4th, and 5th stay here later in the future.

    "Nice hotel in the Union Square"
    Loved the hotel, very clean and room with a view. Stayed a week with no problems. Nice swimming pool. Not much other than shopping within walking distance, municipal transportation required for the tourist spots but even that was not a problem with Market St just two blocks away. Baseball park within walking distance. Loved San Francisco and loved the experience. Room Internet connection was poor, very slow and took a long time to connect.
