    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.

    "Good option for stopovers at LAX"
    Had to spend a night here due to a canceled flight. Hotel was newly renovated, modern and very clean. Only complaint was that the coffee maker was missing from the room and even after housekeeping said they would deliver one, it never arrived. But very conveniently located (can walk there from the terminal).

    "Nice hotel convenient to airport"
    Gracious and knowledgeable staff. Room was very nice and clean, with comfortable bed. Enjoyable complimentary breakfast the next morning. Did not care for the parking accommodations. Surprised about the $14.00 paid parking, never mentioned on the hotel listing with Expedia. I took the option, which was to park my late model sports car on the street behind the building. Wondering about a breakin, or theft stayed on my mind during my overnight stay.

    I've lived in San Diego for most of my life but never stayed in the Del. Our stay was excellent in every way, from the greeting in the dark wood lobby to our departure at the valet parking. Having a drink on at an ocean front bar with the sound of the Pacific pounding on the shore was special.
