    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.

    Great location and comfortable beds ! I picked this location because it was central. It worked well. The hotel itself was great. The only thing was the noise from the street but the hotel had ear plugs in the room for that.

    "LOVED this hotel so much"
    What a pure delight to check into this amazing hotel. We knew it was close to Union Square and that was about it. LOVED our experience from check-in to check out. Loved how walkabout it was around Union Square which was big for my teenage shopper. Our room had gorgeous views and was so comfortable. Imagine our surprise when we turned on the remote control in the bathroom and a tv was there! We had dinner in the restaurant and the salmon was wonderful. Their breakfast buffet was amazing with both american and japanese options. We will definitely stay here on future visits to San Francisco!!!

    "Nice downtown hotel w/ great access to everything"
    I needed to stay at a hotel for a week because of repairs to my home. I also needed a place that would accept pets. And, I wanted a place that would be close to my work, which is downtown. The Sofia was reasonably priced and fit the bill. I knew that the Sofia had been completely remodeled and was now considered a nice boutique hotel. I was impressed with the quality of the remodel and the aesthetics of the hotel. Although my room was small, it was very comfortable and nice. Towels, bedding were good quality. Carpet clean and modern. Kind of odd shower arrangement with no curtain or full screen. It allowed bathroom floor to get pretty wet. Television was great but channel selection was limited. There was free wifi. Hallways were fine. Elevators were small but operated okay. Lobby had several areas where you could sit and chat or watch television, although you couldn't change the channels, which was a little aggravating. Currant restaurant was accessible from hotel lobby. This is a high quality restaurant with great happy hour deals on food and drinks. Other restaurants very close. All staff encountered were great. Hotel is within walking distance of downtown San Diego restaurants, waterfront, shopping (Horton Plaza, Seaport Village), and downtown businesses, courts, law firms, banks. 7/11 in next block. Trolley within a block. Homeless people an issue near hotel, but this is the case throughout downtown San Diego - really unfortunate situation.
