California is a top worldwide destination for many travelers, thanks to its beaches, natural beauty, laid-back lifestyle, and the film and tech industries which have made the state their home.
For those of you planning a road trip through the great state of California, try to find one of the many boutique hotels in the West Coast cities that will give you a taste of each area’s local flavor, rather than booking impersonal hotel chains.
If you want to go on the perfect West Coast road trip, stay at one of the following boutique hotels across California and enjoy the trip of a lifetime!
The Meritage Resort & Spa
Wine connoisseurs and outdoor enthusiasts have to stop at California’s scenic Napa Valley, and book a room at the Meritage Resort & Spa. Splurge on the resort’s deluxe rooms which include 42-inch flat screen TVs, Wi-fi, and spacious desks to help you get your work done before relaxing in style at the hotel’s Spa Terra. Best of all, the hotel is close both to Napa’s restaurant and shop-filled downtown scene, as well as plenty of local wineries.
The tech-ruled center and former hippie enclave of San Francisco has plenty of personality and culture, and there is no better way to enjoy it than at the CitiGarden Hotel. The CitiGarden is a great budget hotel for both visitors and business travelers to San Francisco, as it provides some of the cheapest yet most clean and comfortable rooms in the city. Rooms offer Wi-fi and writing desks and the hotel is next to the South San Francisco Convention Center. Shoppers and pet-lovers will especially enjoy the nearby shopping centers and the hotel’s pet-friendly policy, and all guests can enjoy CitiGarden’s outdoor pool and Bei Jing restaurant.
Hotel Focus SFO
Another great budget option for business travelers journeying through San Francisco is the Hotel Focus SFO. For a motel, the rooms’ amenities are great for guests, as the room includes free Wi-fi and flat screen TVs with HBO. Best of all, the Hotel Focus SFO has a BART station nearby that takes guests straight to downtown San Francisco.

Many visitors never get to Sacramento, but a stay in this beautiful city in California is definitely worth it for travelers who appreciate museums, history and culture. Stay at the Delta King Hotel, an authentic riverboat right on the waterfront with incredible views, which offers guests beautiful smoke-free rooms with free Wi-fi and cable TV. You will be right in the center of Old Town Sacramento, and next to the California State Railroad Museum, Sacramento History Museum, and Crocker Art Museum.
The Citizen Hotel, a Joie de Vivre Boutique Hotel
