    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.

    "Love the Hottub!"
    We paid more than other hotels would have cost because we knew we wouldn't have to go outside to get to the hottub. If breakfast were included it would have helped make our stay nicer. At least we had coffee provided. No microwave or refrigerator was included either. We loved how spacious the room was so was the bathroom and also the shower. The way the room was designed was exceptional. Our favorite thing was the indoor big hottub on the lower level.

    My husband and I really enjoyed our stay! The room was nice and clean. The bed and feather pillows were awasome, we had a great sleep! The decor was nice, they did a great job on the remodel. The complementary breakfast buffet was fresh and delious, it hit the spot! We'll defiantly stay there again next time we're in town.

    "Slightly Disappointing but Still Recommended"
    Haven't stayed at Parc 55 since before it was acquired by Hilton. The facilities are not as well maintained. The window openings would not stay open and the bathroom door had a loud squeak. We were also disturbed by very loud guests in the hallway at 3 a.m. Our check in was delayed because the staff was unaware our breakfast was included and then took several minutes to locate the voucher we needed. Not as efficient as I was accustomed to previously. Overall though, the hotel is in a great location, the view was breathtaking, our breakfast was very good and the facilities are still very nice. I would still recommend. it with the hope that there will be better attention to details.
