    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.

    "Not all room can get roll away!"
    We had two beds for 4 people but we aren't tiny. We were there for basketball tournament. We needed a rollaway and when placing order was ok. But we got to room ( good size of open space). We were told it would be a fire hazard. My son slept on the floor. There is no fine print about rollaway limits only they have extra cost. Glad we didn't need a crib.

    "Great location, smelt like weed in the corridors."
    Checkin with Brian seemed to take quite a long time and wasn't the warmest experience. Very robotic. After our arrival we requested two wine glasses, a plate and butter knife as we had purchased some cheese and wine. It baffles me that paying well over $750 AUD for a room + parking for THREE DAYS only that a hotel wasn't able to provide us with any of the above. Drinking wine from a paper starbucks cup is not ideal. Brian said that we could wait the four hours until 7pm where we could go to the ballroom and get some glasses. Very frustrating and complacent attitude wasn't necessary. We felt like idiots for asking for such basic things to be fobbed off. When I worked in a hotel I would go above and beyond to ensure my guests are comfortable. Wasn't a fan of the pole in the middle of the room. We had lots of luggage so there wasn't much floorspace. The breakfast was fabulous as was the chef. He was very friendly and had such a great attention to detail.

    "Great staff, walking distance to lots of shopping"
    Got to hotel early, room was ready & was offered & accepted an upgrade with a nice view. Room was clean & despite being nearer the elevators was quiet. Beware of the fancy elevators-- we were engaged in conversation and didn't realize that you need to enter floor number OUTSIDE and then look for the appropriate bay to alight. Made for a hilarious first trip to our room (another couple had just realized the same, but the quickly closing door separated their party). Barbary Coast coffee shop is super tight squeeze, but it was nice to grab a quick bite. You should know that hotel is nicely situated to nearby shopping and the walk wasn't too sketchy. Later, we walked to the theater (right turn down Market) which looked really close on a map, but that walk was sooooooo sketchy (even before sunset, so we taxied back after the show because we were afraid to walk that stretch again). That's definitely not on the hotel, but travelers should be aware. Last but not least, the drive to & from the hotel off the Bay Bridge was REALLY easy. Sometimes you find yourself turned around for an hour on crazy busy one way, pedestrian-filled streets trying to get to hotels in SF, but this is not the case for Parc 55. We'll stay here again!
