Hotel in Millbrae

Grand Hyatt at SFO has a fitness centre and a bar. Among the facilities of this property are a restaurant, a 24-hour front desk and room service, along with free WiFi.

Hotel Corque 4 stars

Hotel in Solvang

Located 5 minutes’ walk away from Old Mission Santa Ines, this boutique hotel offers a restaurant on site. It features an outdoor pool and hot tub and spacious room with free WiFi. This place is extremely nice! We enjoyed staying here a lot. The place is lovely, super clear and you get a lot of quality for a relatively cheap price. The staff was very nice and helpful: initially they gave us a very noisy room next to housekeeping and a main exit (banging door and everything), but they agreed to move us to a different room where we even got a balcony.

La Playa Inn Santa Barbara 3 stars

Hotel in West Beach, Santa Barbara

The Pacific Ocean is less than 5 minutes’ walk from this Santa Barbara property. Continental breakfast and free WiFi are provided. A refrigerator is included in each room. This hotel was new and extremely clean. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The bed and pillows were very comfortable, and the towels were fluffy, all elements that we appreciate in nice hotels. It was nice to be able to open our window for fresh air, and the room was quiet and comfy. The location made it possible to walk along the beach and to restaurants. Parking was free and had enough spots for the rooms in the hotel. Coffee and tea were available at all times, as well as yogurts and cold water bottles. In the morning, they provided croissants and muffins from a local bakery. We might recommend having fruit to be included in the breakfast foods. We will definitely plan to stay at this hotel again in the future.

FAQs about hotels in California

The American Dream

From the searing depths of Death Valley to the snow-capped peaks of the Lake Tahoe mountains, California is a wonderful US state that sums up the American Dream. Nowhere is this more evident than Los Angeles, the home of Hollywood and many stars who grace its red carpets.

In the south-west, Anaheim has a great range of Californian hotels near Disneyland where the magic of the movies comes to life. Sun-drenched San Diego, located close to the Mexican border in the state's south-western tip, is a popular spring break destination as is Palm Springs in a valley surrounded by rugged mountains.

In the well-known wine region of the Napa Valley the vineyards produce some fantastic wines, while Monterey is best known for its spicy cheese and the beautiful coastline that becomes the Big Sur coastal drive. Another driving adventure is the fabled Route 66 and parts of it pass through California, ending at Santa Monica pier.

Along the coast is beautiful Santa Barbara, and further north San Francisco is home to a good proportion of Californian hotels with indoor pools on Booking.com. The Golden Gate city is set around an exclusive bay which ends at Silicon Valley in San Jose, while famous Berkeley University is just across the water. The stunning natural beauty of Yosemite National Park is further east, while Sacramento is to the north-east.
