Loved the gardens. Exelent staff. Good location, fireworks look better from the hotel paking lot than Downtown Disney. Walk a couple times back from the park, just because we wanted too. Busses go back and forward allday. What we did not like si much? The furniture shows the intense usage, but nothing ...

We were pretty happy with our whole experience at HR. Very relaxing and nice visit - except for one thing: Between midnight and 2 AM there was a loud noise coming from somewhere in the walls. It would come and go, but sounded like someone sawing a hole in a wall. The front desk was not surprised ...

Best time to take a vacation to California

If you plan a California vacation in Southern California, expect sunshine and warmer weather year-round -- especially across Los Angeles, San Diego and Palm Springs. Northern California is more varied – San Francisco temps average between the mid 50s and high 60s, while Wine Country can sink into the 40s (winter) and peak in the 80s (summer). And you probably won't see snow in California, unless you're in Lake Tahoe or on a movie set.

Snag lower rates in California from mid-September to mid-November, and then again during winter after Christmas. Summer is peak season across California, especially in San Francisco and Wine Country. Join the paparazzi and celebrities during award season in Los Angeles (mid-January to late February) or the non-stop neighborhood festivals in San Francisco throughout summer.

Insider tips for California travel

Beachcomber Café (Newport Coast)

Hike through Crystal Cove State Park to find this California gem. Enjoy blackened swordfish tacos and margaritas with views of the ocean, Newport Coastline and Catalina Island. And if you hear a bell, look closely – it means another patron spotted dolphins.

Armstrong Redwoods State Forest (Guerneville)

Beyond popular Muir Woods, venture further north to see towering, ancient redwood groves. This intimate forest is home to the 310-foot Parsons Jones Tree, and the Colonel Armstrong Tree, estimated to be over 1,400 years old. Set up camp at the adjacent Austin Creek filled with rolling hills, oaks and open grasslands.

Grandview Park (San Francisco)

Climb to the top of this park in the Sunset District for stunning views of the Pacific Ocean, the Golden Gate Bridge and downtown San Francisco.

Fuego at the Hotel Maya – A Doubletree Hotel (Long Beach)

Enjoy waterfront dining with great views of the Long Beach skyline and the spectacular Queen Mary. And be sure to order sangria (red or white) and guacamole!

Comedy and Magic Club (Hermosa Beach)

See if Jay Leno can make you laugh at this tiny Hermosa Beach club -- nearly every Sunday night he tests his pre-show material. Buy tickets well in advance, the show sells out quickly.
