    Pendry San Diego
    San Diego, CA
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 964 reviewsTripAdvisor (964)

    Though it's only been open since February 2017, the Pendry San Diego has already made a long-lasting impression on its guests. Reviewers raved about the hotel’s ample amenities, well-appointed interiors and unbeatable location in San Diego's Gaslamp Quarter. Recent guests also praised the chic decor in rooms, which have Fili D'oro bedding, complimentary Wi-Fi access and 50-inch TVs. Other standout hotel amenities include a 24-hour fitness center, a spa, a rooftop pool and six restaurants and bars. Lodgers were appreciative of the on-site dining options (especially the seafood-focused Lionfish), but also suggested guests take advantage of the Pendry's stellar location by visiting the Gaslamp Quarter's trendy bars and restaurants. And since this property is part of the Preferred Hotels & Resorts family, members of the iPrefer loyalty program can apply or accrue points here.

    The smallest and most intimate of the Pebble Beach Resorts, Casa Palmero is an exquisite, 24-room property along the fairways of Pebble Beach Golf Links.

    Set in Forestville, California among the Sonoma vineyards and surrounded by gardens, the Farmhouse Inn is a quaint retreat.

Many said dinner at the restaurant was the highlight of their stay (though note, you should book reservations several weeks in advance). And those with a sweet tooth can cap off their night with s'mores around the fire pit. While most enjoyed their stays, several noted that a vacation here will cost a pretty penny.

    Sunset Marquis Villa + Suites
    West Hollywood, CA
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 633 reviewsTripAdvisor (633)

    Many of Los Angeles' hotels celebrate the city's showbiz heritage. The Sunset Marquis specializes in catering to those in the music industry. Billy Idol, Chaka Khan, George Clinton, Ozzy Osbourne, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and many more have cut a track or two in the on-site NightBird Recording Studios. They then stayed after hours to chill at Bar 1200, which serves a long list of trendy cocktails. Recent guests aren't swayed by celebrity but rather by the ultra-cozy beds in the villas and suites, which also feature rainforest showers, minibars, flat-screen TVs and high-speed internet access (for a fee). And when you're not rocking out or hitting the hay, spend some time by one of the hotel's two heated pools or sample the small plate offerings at catavina restaurant. You'll find the Sunset Marquis just off Sunset Boulevard in the hippest part of West Hollywood. What's more, members of the I Prefer Hotel Rewards program can earn and redeem points here.

    Free WiFi

    Towering atop La Jolla Cove and staring down at the bright blue of the Pacific Ocean, La Valencia Hotel and Spa is all about location.

No matter which room you end up in, you'll find amenities like plasma TVs, complimentary Wi-Fi access, Keurig coffee makers and minibars. For an ocean view, be prepared to shell out a pretty penny. But if you're willing to look out onto La Jolla's little city, you'll save some bucks.

    When you see the word "inn," you might conjure up images of floral wallpaper and lace doilies but not here. Rancho Bernardo Inn is more resort than bed-and-breakfast with its 18-hole championship golf course, full-service spa and four on-site eateries. Despite being a good 30-minute drive from San Diego and about 20 miles from the beaches at La Jolla or Del Mar, guests still enjoy Rancho Bernardo's setting. The property's 287 guest rooms and suites all offer views of the property gardens from private patios or balconies, and they also come outfitted with flat-screen TVs and, in some cases, fireplaces. Just be aware that Rancho Bernardo charges a resort fee to cover fitness center access, Wi-Fi connection and complimentary use of courtesy vehicle within 5-mile radius.
