California Hotels

The promise of a better life and the hope of striking it rich lured thousands of settlers across the American west to California. Today the Golden State is still luring visitors to explore its diverse communities and scenery. From your California hotel you can discover rich natural treasures, beautiful and bustling cities, the center of the world's entertainment industry and miles of beaches along the Pacific. There are retro roadside hotels in California that will take you back a few decades as well as trendy California hotels whose cutting edge style changes as quickly as southern California breezes.

California is one of the largest American states and one of the most naturally diverse. The beautiful green rolling hills in the north share very little in common with the California desert in the southern reaches of the state. One of the most spectacular drives in the U.S. is along the Pacific Coast Highway, with the ocean on one side and weathered rocks on the other. The magnificent redwood forests have to be seen to be believed. California is careful to protect its natural resources. In fact, many of its regions have been designated as National Parks by the U.S. government.

One of the most beautiful spots in California is one of its largest cities. San Francisco is considered by many to be the most beautiful city in the U.S. The natural setting of the city, on the hills overlooking San Francisco bay, gave it a great start; but the architecture of its homes, the Golden Gate Bridge, Fisherman's Wharf and the style that the city has maintained through the years has made it one of the outstanding cities of the world. Take a ride on a trolley and visit Alcatraz to complete the experience. more...
