                      San Diego Zoo Hotel Guide

                      San Diego Zoo is considered one of those memorable landmarks that almost needs no introduction. For many travelers, it's well worth the expense of the flight alone!

                      While you might not have heard of San Diego County, the destination it is located in, you will probably be aware of the state capital, Sacramento, 470 miles away.

                      There are 91 accommodations within a radius of just 2 miles of San Diego Zoo. Consider the San Diego Marriott Marquis & Marina, just 2 miles away, THE US GRANT, a Luxury Collection Hotel, San Diego, 2 miles away, or the Kimpton Solamar Hotel, 2 miles away.

                      If you would rather keep your accommodation costs low, check out the many budget-conscious hotels in the vicinity. The Days Inn San Diego/Downtown/Convention Center, 1 mile away, or the Best Western Cabrillo Garden Inn, found 1 mile from here, will most likely tick all your boxes.

                      Do you enjoy a more luxurious way of life? Then treat yourself to one of the high-end accommodations situated just a short cab ride away. Visitors who stay at the Hotel del Coronado or the Paradise Point Resort & Spa will encounter the very best in comfort and amenities.

                      This area is bustling with refreshing sights. Jungle Java is a popular eatery that is near San Diego Zoo. A little later on, go to another nearby restaurant. Grab a table at Sandwich Company and try a dish you've never eaten before. You'll definitely want to get a wild night started at Lady Carolyn's Pub, one of the area's busy bars.
