  3. 3. Los Angeles The nations second-largest city (after New York), Los Angeles is a great place in which to do business or take a vacation. Los Angeles marvellous restaurants, terrific nightlife, sunny beaches, diverse cultural offerings, amusement parks and easygoing attitudes converge in a vast Southern California landscape flooded with sunshine and lined with palms. Visitors should see Los Angeles at least once, though a single visit will hardly be enough to appreciate such a large area jam-packed with Southern California attractions.Sights—Back lots and soundstages at Warner Bros. and Universal Studios; billboardsand clubs on Sunset Strip; the mansions of Beverly Hills; people-watching on SantaMonicas Third Street Promenade and the Pier; surfers at Malibu Beach; the gardensand art collection at Huntington Library.Museums—European paintings, sculpture, photography and architecture at theGetty Centre or antiquities at the Getty Villa; Asian, European and American art andthe Broad Contemporary Art Museum at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art;modern art and contemporary exhibits at the Museum of Contemporary Art(including the Geffen Contemporary); the Degas ballet sculptures at the NortonSimon Museum; television and radio archives at The Paley Centre for Media.Walks—Los Angeles Conservancy walking tours of downtown; hiking the BackboneTrail or in Franklin Canyon Park; a stroll through the Huntington Librarys BotanicalGardens; meandering along the Venice boardwalk; seeing the stars on theHollywood Walk of Fame and the Graumans Chinese Theatre.
  4. 4. Ramada Plaza West Hollywood 13-16 September 2012 Located smack-dab in the heart of West Hollywoods Boys Town, and close to nightlife and Beverly Center, this is a middle-grade hotel with a bit of self-conscious style to complement the avant-garde neighborhood. (This hotel lies at the center of the worlds largest Halloween street party.) Because of its low rates, unpretentious ambience and short drive or taxi ride to Sunset Strip, many folks choose this hotel over the more expensive Grafton and the raucous Standard. The lobby is surprisingly chic, with gold and black accents contrasting with the candy-color sculpture just outside. A glass wall separates the lobby bar, which features two laptops on the counter for Internet surfing. Du-pars coffee shop, a Los Angeles fixture, has a branch here fronting the street and offers all-day dining, with breakfast at any hour. The hotel also offers a burger place, and Jamba Juice and Starbucks outlets next door.The small revamped pool enlivens the second- floor terrace and offers complimentary wireless Internet access. Guests can use the first-rate sports club across the street for a fee. The well-kept accommodations are large and bright, combining pop-art posters and louvered shutters with a mix of black and white fabrics and furniture. Average-sized standard rooms have double or queen beds, safes, coffeemakers, hair dryers, irons and ironing boards, and Web TV. Most guests will do better paying the nominal increase for so-called Executive Suites, as these are larger studios equipped with wet bars, microwave ovens and refrigerators. For a few more dollars, guests can move up to a bi-level Loft Suite with two TVs, a wet bar, a king bed, a dressing area, and a bath with a phone. A few rooms overlook the pool in back, but front rooms offer the best people-watching—and the most noise. Room service stops at 10:30. This postmodern hotel draws much business from the thriving gay community around it—a real eye-opener for budgeting families seeking a Hollywood address. The Ramada sign above the entrance to the hotel is an honest indicator of what one should expect here: "Clean, comfortable, economical."
  5. 5. Hollywood Heights Hotel 13-16 September 2012 Located by the Hollywood Hills, the Hollywood Heights Hotel is within blocks of the Hollywood Bowl and Hollywood & Highland Center, which includes the Kodak Theater and Graumans Chinese Theater. The Los Angeles hotel is 2 mi (3.5 km) from the Sunset Strip and 4 mi (6 km) from Beverly Hills. Hollywood Heights features Classic Hollywood photos adorn the walls of the lobby, which is furnished in mid-century style befitting the hotels location. Bordered by the lush hillside are the outdoor pool and spa tub and inside is a 24-hour fitness center. The Hollywood Heights Hotel also offers a casual restaurant with lounge. Business amenities at this 3.0-star hotel include a business center, complimentary wireless Internet access, and 2 meeting rooms. This is a smoke-free property.
  6. 6. ANdAZ West Hollywood 13-16 September 2012 Entering the hotel, guests get an immediate sense theres something different here. Case in point: earpiece-wearing security guards and digital-tablet-clad hostesses, who facilitate the unique check-in process. Rather than a lining up at a traditional reception area, hosts seat guests in the loungelike lobby space while information is retrieved and keys are issued. Theres even the option to just pull up and unload your bags before zipping off to a business meeting. The concept is free-form and modern, but can be confusing to guests not immediately in-the- know, especially if they manage to make it inside without first connecting with an associate. Directly off the lobby is the sexy RH restaurant, whose initials are a homage to the hotels wild past. (Back in the 70s, bands like Led Zeppelin were rumored to have ridden motorcycles through the hallways of the "Riot House;" now youre more likely to find rock star exploits chronicled there in a coffee table book, rather than witness them in person.) The 24-hour fitness center features an array of cardio equipment, plus yoga mats and Life Fitness resistance-testing machines. The view out onto Sunset Boulevard is a big plus. Up on the roof, the heated panoramic pool is small but charming and surrounded by chaises. Out front, instead of rental cabanas, there are sun-facing shelled daybeds available on a first-come, first- served basis. The full menu from RH can be delivered upstairs as well, but the area is only open from dawn till dusk. Access to the guest rooms is provided via secured elevator or a centrally located staircase to the second floor. Hallways are gray and dimly lit, with room numbers illuminated only below eye level. Each room faces either the Strip or the Hollywood Hills. Select rooms offer sunroom- style set-ups and sitting areas, but there are no patios. Younger and first-time visitors will likely enjoy the action out front, while older guests and businesspeople tend to like the greenery and quiet afforded by rooms in back, which are also less expensive. In short, the hotel is conceptually interesting and should have no trouble attracting twenty- and thirtysomethings used to the eccentricities of boutique properties.
  7. 7.

  8. 8. Santa BarbaraSanta Barbara, California, is all about theoutdoors. The weather is comfortable year-round, and visitors as well as residents canride bikes, walk along the beach or take lazydrives into the hills or through the outlyingvineyards.Located north of Los Angeles, Santa Barbarahas been a celebrity hideaway since the early1900s, with the carefree attitude and architecture of a Mediterranean town and a sunny,Californian disposition. As you bicycle along the Santa Barbara waterfront, youll see whythis seaside city is a special place. Clear, blue skies shine over golden beaches, and the SantaYnez Mountains loom over the citys signature white-stucco buildings with red-tile roofs.Joggers smile, beach volleyball players wave, and brown pelicans flap their wingsmethodically as they fly overhead.In addition to its picturesque waterfront and abundant attractions, including the well-knownSanta Barbara mission, the city offers museums, trendy restaurants and boutiques. Buttheres plenty more to see and do in the area. Montecito to the east is the place forexclusive shopping—its often compared to L.A.s Rodeo Drive. To the west is the livelycampus of the University of California at Santa Barbara. To the north are Santa Maria andthe Santa Ynez Valley, where youll find dozens of wineries as well as the old-time Danishtown of Solvang.Sights—Stearns Wharf; Santa Barbara County Courthouse; Old Mission Santa Barbara.Museums—Santa Barbara Museum of Art; the Maritime Museum; the Museum of NaturalHistory; Santa Barbara Historical Museum; Karpeles Manuscript Library and Museum; theSanta Barbara Botanic Garden.Memorable Meals—The avocado and crab omelette at Sambos; clam chowder at BrophyBrothers; fish tacos at Shoreline Beach Cafe.Late Night—The bars and clubs along lower State Street; live music at SOhO Restaurant &Music Club; Cava in Montecito.Walks—To the end of Stearns Wharf and back; along the waterfront between the harborand Montecito.
  9. 9. Holiday Inn Express Santa Barbara 16 September 2012 Classic touches of California Spanish Revival add to the historic feel of the Holiday Inn Express® Hotel Santa Barbara. The hotels historic property, also known as the Hotel Virginia and built in 1917, features Malibu and Catalina tile-work, exposed brick walls and wrought-iron railings, all in a convenient downtown location. With the hotels location in Santa Barbara, the sights and sounds of the city are just steps away. Quietly charming, Santa Barbara boasts stunning Spanish architecture at siteslike the Santa Barbara Courthouse. The beachand Stearns Wharf are only a few blocks fromthe hotel, while the Santa Barbara Zoo is abouttwo miles away. Dont miss a chance to see theSanta Barbara Mission, known as the "Queen ofthe Missions."Modern conveniences merge with historical touches to create a unique feel, and Santa Barbaravacations are made easy with amenities like the daily, free Express Start Breakfast Bar and freeaccess to Spectrum Gym. Room service is available from Mesa Cafe from 11am to 9pm, and thesecond-level balcony entices guests to relax while enjoying spectacular views of the city.
  10. 10. San SimeonFew places in the U.S. are as opulent as the Hearst Castle, which publisher William Randolph Hearstbuilt in 1919 in the hills above San Simeon, California (located 160 mi/250 km southeast of SanFrancisco). Outfitted with imported treasures from around the world (ancient Greek vases, Italian tapestries, Oriental carpets), the palatial mansion and grounds became—and still are— symbols for ostentation. In fact, Hearst Castle was the model for the mansion Xanadu in Orson Welles movie Citizen Kane, which is a thinly veiledportrait of Hearst. This is one of the few places in the world that might render Lifestyles of the Richand Famous host Robin Leach speechless.Only in recent years has the estates architect, Julia Morgan, begun to receive her due as a pioneer ina field previously reserved for men. She worked for Hearst for 27 years, continually adapting thebuilding to fit his ever-changing wishes. (Morgan reportedly even designed the ceilings to beadjustable in the event he wanted them higher or lower.) It could be argued that Hearsts robber-baron tastes occasionally nudged the architects hand a little too much. Witness, for example, theoutdoor Neptune Pool, a pseudo-Greco-Roman folly that is the very definition of gaudy.There are four separate tours, each focusing on a different part of the grounds. But be advised thatthe privilege does not come cheap: Tours cost upwards of US$30 each. Seeing all four tours in oneday is best left to those with the hardiest constitutions. If you can settle for less, Tour 1 is the bestoption. Make reservations well in advance; many visitors arrive without them and are dismayed tobe turned away at the gates.If youre willing to pay slightly more and are in the area at the proper time (Friday and Saturdaynights September-December and March-May), you can see the castle on an evening tour. Docents in1930s clothing pretend to be the guests and staff at one of Hearsts cocktail parties. Those on thetour can wander through the elaborate rooms as the actors sip martinis, work on puzzles andsocialize in grand fashion.Those who dont want to spring for any of the tours can wander the museum at the base of the hillfor no charge.
  11. 11. Cambria Pines Lodge 17 September 2012 Cambria Pines lodge is a 15 minute drive from Hearst Castle and 1.5 miles from Nitt Witt Ridge. A day spa with body treatments, a restaurant and country-styled rooms are available. Guest rooms at Cambria Pines Lodge provide satellite TV with pay-per-view movies. Select rooms include a microwave, refrigerator and fireplace. The casual restaurant at the Pine Lodge Cambria offers indoor and outdoor seating. Organic produce is served along with award winning wines.Guests can take a self guided tour of Cambriaor visit Piedras Blancas Elephant Seal Rookery,6.4 miles away. Morro Bay State Park is 21.3miles away.Lodge offers rustic cabins and fireplace suites,modern amenities; situated on 25 acres ofMonterey Pines with themed gardens.
  12. 12. MontereyCentral Californias Monterey Bay Peninsula offers some of the most dramatic visual wonders in theworld. The winding Monterey coastline varies from wooded, rugged and rocky to fishing piers,crashing surf and white sandy beaches. Sea life is abundant. It is not uncommon to see playful seaotters, harbor seals, barking sea lionsand pods of migrating whales in thePacific Oceans blue waters.Although most of the MontereyPeninsulas towns have succumbed totourism in one way or another, natureis still a priority for many of theresidents, and some of them aredevoted to protecting the area fromoverdevelopment. From Santa Cruz—the original surf city—on the north endof Monterey Bay, to the cozy village ofCarmel on the south end, each of thebays oceanside enclaves has its ownpersonality.Two communities sit on the north endof the bay: Capitola and Moss Landing,an old whaling village. Monterey, the largest bay town, is located in the center of the peninsula andhas three different areas to tour: Monterey State Historic Park with its historic adobe buildings, Cannery Row and Fishermans Wharf. Cannery Row is worth a day of exploration. You wont find much resemblance to Steinbecks description of the area in his 1945 novel of the same name, but you will find many candy shops, T-shirt stores, restaurants, small beaches and the wonderful Monterey Bay Aquarium, which houses some 550 different species. Pacific Grove prides itself on being Americas last home town as well as Butterfly Town USA, where millions oforange-and-black monarch butterflies overwinter each year. The gated community of Pebble Beachis known worldwide for its golf courses and its 17-mi/27-km drive of spectacular ocean views.Charming Carmel-by-the Sea is a village full of art galleries, boutiques and small shops that attractbeach lovers and retired movie stars.The Monterey Bay Peninsulas fairly constant 65 F/18 C temperature and more than 200 annualspecial events make the area a popular destination. Author Robert Louis Stevenson rightly called thepeninsulas Point Lobos State Reserve "the greatest meeting of land and water in the world."
  13. 13. Hyatt Regency 18 September 2012Located 2 miles east of the beach on Del Monte Golf Course, this upscale commercial resort touts itsgreenside location by providing access to golf at half the price of the Pebble Beach options. The renovation completed a couple of years ago is holding up well, its sleek contemporary lines looking as new as the day they were cast. The hotels trendy new look is popping up in all of its siblings around the globe. Thanks to the recent makeover and the superlative staff, this remains Montereys most comprehensive resort and meeting venue for large groups. Common areas cluster tightly around the restyled lobby, which captures a sleek contemporary look straight off the cover of Modern Living. The custom seating andmodern art provide a surprisingly residential feel.The former Cafe Monterey, now Fireplace Lounge, has been transformed into a hip new hangoutthat is part cafe, part social center. Moody music and mood lighting set the tone of the placethroughout the day.The stylish new dining room, TusCa, is a study in Milanese design, with sleekcustom seating, theatrical lighting and an exhibition kitchen. Like its moniker, the food fuses Tuscanand Californian fare with eye-catching results. The wine list is excellent.Recreational facilities include two pools, whirlpools, sixtennis courts that charge fees, and a health center withexercise bikes and tanning beds. The new 12,000-sq-ftspa  is  a  feather  in  this  hotel’s  cap,  rounding  out  the  facilities that have been a little too commercial-heavyover the past decade. A long roster of heath and beautytreatments is at the ready.The hotel can host gatherings of up to 1,000 people intwo revamped ballrooms and more than two dozenmeeting rooms, all equipped with wireless Internetaccess. Free parking is a big perk.Because of the sprawl here, guests with their own golf carts have an advantage; accommodationsare spread out in seven wings. All of the rooms have been renovated over the past few years, eachappointed in trim contemporary style with new plasma-screen TVs, pillow-top Grand beds and newrefrigerators. The rooms muted earth-tone decor and angular modern furniture will win no awardsfor innovation, but the smart sassy style is universally attractive. Amenities include paired phoneswith voice mail, data ports, Internet access (for a fee) and coffeemakers.
  14. 14. San FranciscoSan Francisco, California, is a world-class destination, a favorite of international travelers anddomestic tourists alike.

Tourism is its primeindustry, and the city has a thriving convention business that keeps its hotels and restaurants busythroughout the year. Youll find San Francisco one of the worlds most scenic cities—its all the images and ideas come to life: the Golden Gate Bridge, cable cars, Chinatown, pastel Victorian houses, steep hills, extraordinary restaurants, earthquakes.

The roller-coaster landscape of hilly streets, the diverse population and thespectacular setting on San Francisco Bay charm visitors from all over the world.Sights—The Golden Gate Bridge; a cable-car ride over Nob Hill; Golden Gate Park; FishermansWharf; a ferry ride to Sausalito; the postcard row of Victorians at Alamo Square; farmers market andgourmet goods at the Ferry Building; Lombard Street, the crookedest street in the U.S.Museums—The Asian Art Museum; the Legion of Honor; the de Young Museum; San Francisco ArtInstitute; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Museum of the African Diaspora (MoAD);Seymour Pioneer Museum; the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.Late Night—Cocktails and film noir at Lone Palm; Beach Blanket Babylon at Club Fugazi; jazz at theCafe du Nord; dancing at Harry Dentons Starlight Room atop the Sir Francis Drake Hotel; a late-nightbite at the Globe.Walks—Walking in Golden Gate Park; hiking across the Golden Gate Bridge; strolling anywhere alongthe 10-mi/15-km coastline from the Embarcadero through the Golden Gate Promenade (in thePresidio); shopping around Union Square; exploring the smaller streets and alleys of Chinatown;climbing a garden-lined stairway to Coit Tower.information on evening dance performances, inquireat your hotel or the tourist office on the main road.
  15. 15. San Francisco Stay Option 1:The Handlery Union Square 19-22 September 2012Located at Union Square, the HandleryUnion Square Hotel offers the perfect SanFrancisco lodging for vacationers andbusiness travelers. As a family-owned hotel,it creates great experiences for guests byoffering personal service, comfortable rooms, and a warm atmosphere. Ideally located near main San Francisco attractions, including the world famous cable car right at our corner, the Handlery Union Square Hotel sets the standard in affordable luxury.
  16. 16. San Francisco Stay Option 2:The Chancellor Hotel on Union Square 19-22 September 2012 In a superb location facing the cable-car tracks and Beefeaters stationed in front of the Sir Francis Drake, a half-block north of Union Square but with great views of it from upper floors, this hotel continues to move up the ladder of success, thanks in part to continued renovations. While the Chancellor provides no real competition to the Sir Francis Drake, it is a standout midrange tourist destination that has earned its reputation as bona fide bargain. For the location, service and quality of the accommodations, this place is very fairly priced. It has been family-owned since 1914, and service is the highlight. Besides the small lounge adjoining the reception area, the hotel has a casual cafe serving a bland all- American breakfast and lunch buffets at moderate prices. The tour desk, gift shop andATM located beside the entrance get lots of use.Recreational facilities are lacking, but unlike some far superiorhotels without their own gym or health facilities, this hotelprovides guests with free passes to a local facility, including onewith a pool and whirlpool. This is a very thoughtful perk. The in-room massages are also a nice touch.Unlike the plodding elevators usual in older hotels, the one here zips upward. The refurbished guest roomsshow an attractive blend of modern and traditional accents, with bold contemporary color schemes in rust,gold, green and blue. Added improvements include attractive window treatments, new beds, thoughtful lamplighting and complimentary wireless Internet access.Small safes (too small for laptops), irons and ironing boards and decent storage space with extra bedding arestandard. All have small corner sitting areas. The baths vary in size from small to spacious. New flat-screen TVs,phones with data ports and voice mail, and hair dryers are also available.Many units, particularly those ending in -02 to -05, have good views of Union Square or the bay. The suites arelarge and bright.The cooperative staff aims to please at this refuge for frugal shoppers and frugal commercial and leisure folk.Thanks to renovations and consistent service, this hotel remains one of the best in its class.
  17. 17. HonoluluVisitors to Honolulu may hear that, because its Hawaiis largest city, it is less "Hawaiian" than therest of the state. The high-rise office buildings and traffic of Honolulu dont match peoples romanticideal of what Hawaii should be—remote, palm-fringed beaches and lavish resorts.In truth, Honolulu is probablythe most Hawaiian part of thestate, because it best reflectsthe different things that Hawaiican be. Honolulu attractionsinclude a multicultural mix ofpeople, a beautiful landscapeof greenery and ocean, and aplace where amazing eventshave unfolded—many of themrecounted in Honolulus historicsites and museums.All thats exciting about big-citylife—theater, opera, museums,shopping, nightclubs, finedining—is set againstHonolulus backdrop of majesticmountains, lush rain forests andsweeping vistas.And, with Waikiki along one edge of the city, travelers to Honolulu even have a beach resort.
