    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.

    "Nice hotel. Only 6 miles from the beach!"
    The room was mediocre, the room was originally too warm, but the hotel staff was friendly and even called a cab for us when we asked. If you're not going to be at the hotel during the day, I recommend it.

    "Very nice hotel, heart of downtown "
    Comfortable, clean, and close. The only negatives about this place are the cost of Valet parking, and the neighborhood in which it resides. But, on the other hand, that is necessary when you want to be right in the middle of Union Square, and all the action.

    "Nice hotel in the middle of everything"
    I would return for just the comfortable mattress and the great shower. The standard room was a little smaller than usual, but not cramped. The decor was attractive and it had everything we needed. The free wi-fi was inconsistent but I chose not to pay for the high speed upgrade. The location was close to shopping and restaurants as well as public transportation.

    "Rooms were very small and outdated. "
    The location is great due to it being near trolley, mall and freeway but is outdated. It appears at one time it was a great resort. Rooms were clean but toiletries were not replenished. Room was smaller than anticipated and upgraded to larger room in the tower, that room the air conditioner did not work and moved to 3rd room which was fine with a view of the pool.
