    Best Times to Visit

    Because of its sheer variety of destinations, there is no bad time to visit California. The most popular time of year is late spring through early summer, when the beautiful California weather is in full swing. You can hit the beach in sunny San Diego or Los Angeles, view the spectacular waterfalls and wildflower blooms in Yosemite National Park, or take a scenic stroll through the verdant countryside of Napa Valley. September through October is an ideal time to visit Disneyland®, Knott’s Berry Farm®, Universal Studios®, and many of the state's other popular tourist attractions as the weather is still comfortable, but there are fewer crowds and slightly lower prices. Fall is also a great time to visit some of the state's desert attractions, such as Death Valley and Joshua Tree National Park. In the winter, California's numerous ski resorts serve as the perfect destinations for hitting the slopes and enjoying the beautiful scenery.

    Geography

    California is very much a land of contrasts with varied geography that runs the gamut from parched, sunbaked deserts in the south to temperate, misty forests and snow-capped mountain ranges in the north. The state is home to portions of the beautiful Sierra Nevada and Cascade Ranges, including the towering spire of Mount Whitney, which stands as the tallest peak in the Lower 48. The Coast Ranges, famed for the towering coast redwoods that thrive in the mountainous terrain, run along the western portion of the state. Between the mountain ranges, the Central Valley is home to both bucolic farmlands and inland cities such as Sacramento. Bordering the Pacific Ocean, the western coast of California is world-renowned for its unique terrain and stunning vistas. With so many different climates and environments, there truly are resorts in California for just about everyone. Let Expedia.com help you find the perfect fit for your West Coast escape.

    "Better for business than vacation, but still good"
    I booked this hotel via Expedia for a family vacation. It's a nice hotel - very beautiful lobby, bars, etc. However, I think it's better suited for business than vacation. For one thing, it's extremely expensive. The breakfast buffet is $27/person. Family of 4 with tip was $120. Also, it seems San Diego is just expensive in general. Most meals for 4 at restaurants in the area (like the Gaslamp District) ran between $160 and $300. You can do cheap, but there's not much around for that within walking distance. With that said, it's a great location. Close to the USS Midway and other local attractions. Otherwise, you'll want to rent a car. Don't forget to include $30/night for parking. Like I said, nice place, but be prepared to lay out some cash.

    "Great Downtown Location!"
    We had an excellent experience! Arrived 11:00 am with intentions of leaving our bags. Gave us option of checking into a room on 6th floor or wait for room on higher floor with a view. We waited and got a fabulous room! Walked to a late dinner right by Union Square and felt safe- just stay away from streets on back side of hotel. Like any big city, rough neighborhood is close to back side of hotel. Bar & appetizers great. Only complaint is no electrical outlet in bathroom! Had to sit at desk to do my hair. We will go back!
