There can be few places in the world more synonymous with beach life, so trust in California hotels to get you that fix of sun, sand and surf.
Staying in California
There's plenty of choice for you, whether you're thinking of checking into a smaller, more personalised bed & breakfast, of which there are many, or a more extravagant resort, from where you can enjoy the beaches, skiing, or wineries.
The iconic Californian beach dream, Malibu is full of locals and not quite so great for tourists, but there are still hotels in the area. If it's plush and pampered you're after though, head to Laguna Beach, a beautiful coastal town in Orange County, where you can find upmarket resorts and hotels close to the local shops and restaurants.
Visiting Los Angeles
If you're headed to the Golden State to spend some time in Los Angeles, be sure to scope out which area you'd like to stay in before booking your hotel.Downtown is fairly cheap and has a good nightlife and restaurants, while Santa Monica is lively yet generally more expensive. Beverly Hills and Hollywood speak for themselves, while West Hollywood is conveniently located between the two, with many places to stay on the famous Sunset Boulevard.
