One reason for not wanting to get out of bed in the Hotel des Arts is that you are a lazy creature and the other is that it's fascinating to sleep under a painting by an artist of the local scene in San Francisco. If you like Sofi´s recommendation in San Francisco, you´ll like Sofi's Trip to Burgos.
Until 1948, one of the largest and fastest transatlantic ships was the Queen Mary. After it's launch in 1936 it spent several years as a cruise liner and during World War II it was used as a troop transport in many times until 1946. After the world war it was again reformed to continue making leisure trips until it's final journey in 1967. This is the year when it was moved to Long Beach dock to begin it's new life as a museum, hotel and conference center. The ship has starred in some of the most famous Hollywood movies like "Pearl Harbor" and "The Poseidon Adventure". It's certainly one of the biggest attractions in Los Angeles
The Express By Holiday Inn at Universal Studios Hollywood is located in Los Angeles in California. It has the convenience of being close to the most famous spots in California. It has a sauna and a fitness center. The rooms have cable TV, coffeemakers, wireless Internet access, etc..
A friend and I went to spend three days in San Francisco and this hostel was a hit and ahd charm that a normal hotel can not offer ... I noticed that there weren't any people over 35 years old, but that's part of the reason why we liked. The rooms are basic, but that's ok because we were only there to sleep. We spent the rest of the day visiting the city and when night arrives, you can meet people with similar interests with whom you can share your experiences. You enter that small community of young travelers when you participate in the first dinner (free on Tuesdays) or in your first Beer Olympics (which, oddly enough, was won by a German girl and a Frenchman!). The fact is that during your stay, you live with people have alrady been there a few days and can recommend good places. There are computers with free wi-fi, 3 free dinners, parties, etc.
Stay on Main is a new concept of boutique Hostels. You can spend the night in a double room including breakfast for $ 26 night which is a great price. The economy rooms have basic furniture and the bathroom is shared. They also have superior rooms. It is a hotel to suit every budget. The breakfast is basic but sufficient (cereal, milk, coffee or tea).
In 1876 Mission Inn was built by Christopher Miller as a small pension. In 1902, his son Frank began to change it into a very luxurious hotel for travelers coming from Europe to enjoy the good weather in Riverside. Today, Mission Inn is right in the center of Riverside, a historic city. The hotel itself is an authentic beauty, with several courtyards with different architectures. Walking through the corridors of this hotel is like walking through the palaces, castles and churches of Europe. The atmosphere is one of relaxation and curiosity about the antiquities. To fully enjoy this place, you have to spend hours wandering through the maze of courtyards, corridors and terraces. The hotel also has a museum, a library and several shops and restaurants.
The Motel 6 hotels are pretty much all the same anywhere you go in the California, USA area. They pretty much all have rooms with double beds, bathroom with shower and a television. We discover in this population and thereafter stayed with the book of the motels 6 and was our first choice to go. It seemed like we were always in the same room. In addition to book for your next stop from the motel where you are (you make them), and this especially in high season you have to go scrambling to find other travelers site (on Lake motel Page not found Bryce had to go to night without finding canyon site and ended up sleeping in the van). In this motel the boy spoke Spanish and had more Hispanic workers. Before we go to see others and just value on it.
This is a nice hotel in the heart of downtown San Francisco. Though the rooms are kind of small, the hotel is worth if only for its location. You are just a three minute walk from Union Square and Market Street. Also, the staff is very friendly and it has everything you are looking for. A good choice if you're looking for a hotel in the city.
The Twin Peaks is located in the Castro neighborhood, close to Metro Church. We found it in a Lonely Planet Guide and truthfully, it was very good value for the price. They have weekly rates of $250 for a double room with a sink, and the shared bathrooms were very clean. It is well connected with the metro and trams going down to the center and there are many bars and restaurants nearby in the Mission and Castro areas. It cimes highly recommended for tight budgets.
A great place, ideal to stay for a few days or a whole season!! The owners of the house are a couple of super friendly guys. They were very helpful and we had some pleasant conversation. The room was very clean with everything you need and more, the kitchen has everything, and besides, this downtown neighborhood is very safe and quiet, with plenty of restaurants within walking distance and the subway stop within walking distance of about 10 minutes. There is parking in the private yard of the house. They only have two rooms, so book early! And it's pretty cheap!
Located in the small town of Oakhurst, 15 miles from the south entrance of Yosemite National Park, this budget hotel is clean and charming. It has large and comfortable beds, rooms decorated with traditional American furniture, and frescoes on the walls painted with images of the national park. The hotel offers free ice to customers, and free wifi internet connection. There are souvenir shops and a restaurant where you can taste the best dishes of California state. The staff is friendly and helpful. It's located on the edge of town, but still very close to all the facilities you need. A great choice to stay without having to pay excessive accommodation prices in the middle of a forest.
The most spectacular thing about the center pier is the lobby of this hotel. I haven´t written this so that you will go and stay there (unless you have a good budget), but so that you will take a peek at it. It has a pyramid and rooms with a diagonal ceiling, like the Luxor in Las Vegas. A pair of glazed external lifts lead to Equinox, a revolving restaurant, and a giant sculpture in the middle of the hall make it worthy of a review.
If luxury hotels aren't your thing and you just want a good, cheap, and nice place, then you have found it in the USA and more specifically in Los Angeles, the Motel 6. All motel 6 rooms are almost the same everywhere you go , including the structure of the buildings. Specifically east of Inglewood is out of the norm because it's more like a hotel than a motel. It has several floors, elevators, a large lobby. Prices are set by season, no haggling or tricks like at other motels. Ideal if you want to be close to the airport. But if you do intend to spend time in a particular area of LA, it's also conveniently located to go anywhere, because the truth is in LA everything is far. Strongly recommended. A room in September for 4 was between 40 and 70 a night. In East Inglewood if memory my memory serves me correctly it was $ 70.
I have no words to describe this hotel. It's lovely, romantic, ideal. I could only book through their website: http://www.spindriftinn.com/. The sea view rooms are amazing, since the hotel is on the beach. When you are there you have great service, they invite you to taste wines and assorted cheeses and let you take them to the room. In the room you have your own binoculars as it is easy to see the sea lions lie down on the rocks. It took 2 hours from San Francisco along the road to the coast, where you can take great photos. Only stayed one night before continuing our trip to Morro Bay and Los Angeles.
If you want a motel near Lone Pine, or need to stop on the way between Death Valley and Mammoth Lakes, if you've been looking for a motel for almost 21 hours and are on the verge of spending the night in your car ... this is your last option. It's in Olancha. The motel seems okay on the outside, if a little old, but once you enter you'll find your worst nightmares are confirmed! Only shower if you're getting desperately smelly. The furniture is as smelly as you could possibly imagine. I remember it with a smile now, but it certainly wasn't funny at the time! There are spiders everywhere. A LAST RESORT. It cost us $65.
This is one of several motels on Lombard street, and is almost certainly the best option for lodging in any area. Budget everything because staying in the city center is expensive, this area included. The hotel is close to almost everything (well, close is relative in America). It is 300 meters from Lombard street from the photos. The motel is good, but not fancy. The exterior elevator works for some reason. The breakfast is very basic. The price during peak season was $145 for 4 people. It was spacious. You can negotiate the price if you pay cash instead of with a card (talk to the Indian owner with a negotiating face). It has parking. Overall it was a good opinion, but I do not know that it was the best. I gave it a 5.5.
The Cow Hollow Motor Inn and Suites is a very good place to stay in a very central area of beautiful SAN FRANCISCO and where, with a single or a double room, you can spend the night with your family, taking your car right there, where you are staying. You are provided with a kitchen, if you want to prepare your own food and a dining room where you enjoy it, and all the amenities of a three star hotel.
It was mid-April when we stayed in this hotel. We slept there and then spent the day in Yosemite National Park, which is about 2 hours away. A beautiful hotel to stay in, it has an indoor pool and a small tub. The city leaves much to be desired .... it is very dark at night and everything closes early. At 21:00 we wanted to go to dinner, but everything was closed. Anyway, the hotel is very good and has Free parking.
We at the Courtyard Salinas Monterey in mid-April of 2010. It has one of the most impeccable Courtyards I've ever seen. We were going to spend all day in Carmel (it's less than an hour away from Salinas). We love Carmel. Beautiful people. We only spent one night in this hotel. Salinas leaves a lot to be desired. It's very dark and everything closes early. The hotel has free parking. It's a family hotel. It has an indoor pool.
This property is small, clean and simple, with an indoor pool and free parking. The staff was a bit casual, but nice and warm. They have free breakfast. The hotel is surrounded by a huge outlet mall. We were there in late April for just one day to tour Napa Valley. Vacaville is very nice and pleasant. At the hotel, there were discounts for admission to wineries.
The Sofitel in Beverly Hills is a very good hotel, with an above average, friendly staff. It is very comfortable with a pretty good location, near the main avenues of the city. There is a complete breakfast available but is not included in the nightly rate, as with most hotels in the U.S. If you intend to use the pool, a little warning: it is very small for a hotel of these characteristics.
The accommodation at Curry Village wasn't the best (their tents were dirty and in need of mending), but the location couldn't be better. The bathrooms and showers were more of the same: lacking in maintenance and cleanliness. They advised us to keep everything from food to cosmetics in an iron trunk at the food of our tent in case some hungry animals wandered into camp. The best part about the camp is the well-stocked food and drink shops. There are a couple of Italian restaurants with terraces and a few more conventional restaurants, one with a rather charming fireplace and porch that makes for an excellent place for a beer and reflection about your day exploring Yosemite.
There is a free bus which runs through the park that will take you to other trails and the Visitors' Center.
Park Plaza Hotel is worth visiting for its luxurious interior even if you're not staying there. I had a very strange experience at this hotel one March afternoon: I stayed maybe half an hour wandering the corridors and large reception room without crossing a single soul. It was like a ghost hotel! I never understood the lack of visitors seeing as how the place is so beautiful! In the lobby, a panel with the posters of films shot in different parts of the hotel.
The Bay Front Inn Santa Cruz is a complex that's situated in an ideal location because it's very close to the beach and boardwalk. It is easily accessible, and can be reached by public transport like the Greyhound bus station, which is very close. It is only 45 minutes from San Jose International Airport. The hotel's service is warm and friendly and very family friendly.
A great choice if you're going to be spending a few nights in the city, you're just a few steps away from everything and it's a budget hotel compared to the Hilton and the other ones in the Bay area. The rooms are very well insulated and have some of the best beds and pillows I've ever encountered as a traveler. That's right: the twin room is small, and can be a bit distressing to organize if two people are sleeping together, it's better to ask for a bigger bed. The toilet is in the room, but it's a separate bathroom. The rest of the room's amenities are very good and are very complete with TV, iron, fridge and a microwave. The hotel staff are a delight: they help you with everything you need, advises you on tourism issues, and will manage your reservations. They always have water available in the lobby and pet treats. You also get free USA Today and they have a fitness center with cardio machines, weights and a yoga area that's amazing. The worst part is that the room is small and you have to add in addition to the taxes, the "resort fee" to your stay: internet, water in the room every day and other amenities are paid part of this fee.
I often worry about places to stay in that still exist in small towns like Solvang. We considered reserving a room at the Courtyard by Marriott. However, we realized that the hotel was out of the center of town and we wanted something in the middle of the action. We settled with the hotel Corque. It is a boutique hotel with just the right modern European style. It's in the center of town, so there was no excuse not to visit the wine tasting rooms in downtown Solvang and later drag ourselves to our room. It was a block from the main street, so it was nice and quiet! It has a nice pool, a spa, and fresh coffee available all day long in the lobby. The only thing missing was a spa in the hotel. But don't worry about that, because the hotel is owned by Casino Chumas and you can get a discount if you stay at this hotel. I didn't have the opportunity to visit the spa during this trip, unfortunately. It was because I was busy enjoying the wine! Cheers!
