    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.

    This historic hotel is only 1/2 mile from LA Live. It is clean and in a great location which is close to great food and fabilous shopping. Only 2 blocks from from the Metro, it is easy to plan a trip using only LA's public transit. This jewel of a hotel has great structural bones with a staff that fun and caring. I olan on making this my regular spot when staying in LA.

    "Best Hotel in the Area"
    A little bit of a wait checking in. Room was small with queen size bed but we got to upgrade to larger room with king bed and a very quiet, clean room. Staff was accommodating and friendly. We would recommend this hotel to friends going to SF Ballet like we did and it is only a 10 minute walk to Opera House and Symphony and Asia Art Museum. Great place to stay for cultural events around Civic Center. Lot of homeless people outside but, this is the Tenderloin district and we didn't feel too uncomfortable.

    "It was a perfect location."
    I was attending a conference at the Westin Hotel, which was directly across the street from the West Hotel. I got a great place to stay and for a great price. I was close to the harbor and on my last day of the conference walked to the harbor and did a whale watching tour. I was 0.4 mile from the 24 hour Fitness of which I am a member and used this twice, I was 0.6 mile from the theater and went to a movie one evening. There were many restaurants within walking distance so I had a great variety of choices each evening. Along with this, I was able to take the bus to and from the airport (I could catch it within a block of the hotel) and I also was able to take the bus to the San Diego zoo by catching a bus within 4 blocks of the hotel. Fantastic experience with a great price. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others.
