    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.

    "Moderately Upscale Hotel Near Union Square "
    Built in the 1980s, this well-kept, efficiently run hotel is adjacent to much of the heart of San Francisco: dining, shopping, theaters, and urban transit. While the lobby areas are immaculate and bright, I noticed that some of the furnishings in the rooms show signs of wear--furniture that should be replaced, for example. The members of the staff gave quick and helpful service, and it has a secure feeling in spite of the gritty urban surroundings. I have stayed here before and enjoy returning.

    Park Central Hotel San Francisco

    50 3rd St, San Francisco - Map
    "Central location close to Union sqaure"
    Nice hotel conveniently located in downtown San Fran. A stone's throw to all the major shopping labels. Close to public transport. Overall, a pleasant hotel but downsides are the mandatory "resort fee" ($25 per night) which you have to pay even if you don't want to avail of the facilities such as internet, gym etc. We ended up paying $100 for 4 nights for facilities we essentially didn't need. We were also placed in a room at the corner hence views were not great but it was quieter at night.

    "First Class Hotel in San Diego "
    Beautiful First class hotel located in a safe environment adjacent to sea port village. Several bars and restaurants are accessible in the immediate area as well as in the facility itself. The lobby is quite spectacular and worthy of a double take. Transportation is abundant in the area, there is the metro trains, taxi cabs and pedicabs. I would recommend staying at this hotel for any occasion.

    The Sofia Hotel

    150 W Broadway, San Diego - Map
    "Nice hotel with one small problem"
    The hotel is in a great location, the place is clean, nice and the beds are incredibly comfortable. The rooms are a little on the small side, but they are well equipped and have a fridge and microwave. The only issue is with the washroom. Because the rooms are smallish, they only have showers, and not a tub. The shower is also poorly designed as a walk in with only tempered glass on one side. Though it looks nice, the shower doesn't close and because of the small size, the glass that exists is inadequate to keep the water from flooding the toilet area.
