    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.

    Restaurant and bar was not what we expected in a 4 star hotel, there was a time the small portable bar had to be moved outside due to a meeting they were having in the restaurant/ bar area.

    "Amazing location for all things San Fran"
    Location is amazing for all things, you are virtually on top of Powell Station. Simply hop on a cable car or, F historic street car and you are home in comfort. The connections to ATT park are just as good. Easy walk or bus to Chinatown with direct access from SFO via bart. The hotel is clean and delivered a solid place to stay. There are many homeless in the area, but never felt like it was an issue. There was a bit of road noise but there is a funny vent at the bottom of the window that when shut helped with the noise. The location is amazing if you are exploring san fran without the aid of a vehicle. I could nit pick about a slightly outdated bathroom, ect however I had a great stay.

    "Historical hotel with character"
    Hotel was nice for a historical hotel. Small room- not considered luxurious- but still nice. Light in closet didn't work and TV guide/ in room movie purchases didn't work. No microwave, coffee maker, or fridge. And shower surged hot and cold. Location was really close to city hall and many public transportation stops.

    We stayed in a concierge level queen room in adventure tower. The room was dated and in need of renovation but still was very comfortable and a good size. It was on the 10th floor with a huge window facing the parks which was great. The headboard has a magic Kingdom and fireworks design on it with hidden lighting that housekeeping switches on in the evening. Little ones enjoy coming back to that at the end of the day. All in all we enjoyed our stay

    "Location. Location. Location."
    The hotel is nice and every staff member aka Cast Member is happy and professional. However, for the money, the hotel's accommodations are not exceptional EXCEPT location. So, if having relatively quick access to the Parks and to Downtown Disney is important, then the price is worth it. May be great if you have people on different schedules like teenagers or older folks traveling together so they can come and go as desired. Otherwise, save the money and put towards transportation between alternative accommodations and your food and souvenir budget.
