    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.

    "Lovely old hotel"
    I made last minute reservations so I wouldn't have to drive home after a show at the Golden Gate Theater and was very happy to not have to make the 1 1/2 hour drive home after 11 pm.. The Hotel Whitcomb is charming with a gorgeous lobby. There was a funky "old building" smell in the hallway, but our room was fine. The bed was comfy and the location was perfect.

    "Welcome to the Old Marriott!"
    We booked an ocean view room, not realizing it would in another building and not actually located in the Hotel del Coronado building. Our room was located in an old Marriott building near the hotel. The room was spacious, but did have a lot of dust in the bathroom, which also didn't have a fan making it VERY hot after showering. The shower curtain also had mold on it. The beds were comfortable. The dining at the hotel is very expensive and we spent $25 on a burger at the Sun Deck, which came with frozen fries and very little flavor for the burger. The food is pretty disappointing. Count on $20 at least for each entrée, and alcohol drinks at $20 a piece. There were many events going on while we were there making it a great place for people watching. All the staff were very nice, in fact, everyone on Coronado was very nice.
