Hotels in California

Understandably, hotels in California range in quality, price and ambiance. The state is vast, and California hotels include world-class luxurious suites, ridiculously chic boutique hotels, charming bed & breakfasts, budget motels and campgrounds.

Visitors who are looking to go the luxury route should consider staying in Los Angeles. Some of the best hotels in California are located in the "City of Angels," including iconic establishments such as the Beverly Hills Hotel, Hotel Bel Air, and the Chateau Marmont, which boasts a full-service spa, poolside cocktails and has long been the hotel-of-choice for Hollywood’s elite.

Travelers searching for more budget-friendly hotels in California should consider looking outside the state’s urban centers, where prices tend to be higher. Instead, look for bed & breakfasts in any number of the quaint village’s the dot the state’s coast and interior. Camping is also an option, as California boasts some of the United States’ most naturally beautiful state parks, including Yosemite where visitors can either bring their own equipment or reserve a tent.
