Thirsty Souls: Hotel California

This week we're thirsty for a lovely place.  Book a vacay at one of these innovative inns for a taste of what makes California completely irresistible. 

1. Hotel Del Sol - San Francisco

This 1950's motor lodge turned boutique hotel near San Francisco's Marina District treats kids as VIPs, so bring the munchkins along. The little maniacs will love the lending library, afternoon cookies+milk event, and pet friendly atmosphere; parents will flip for the retro vibes and reasonable rates!

2. Caravan Outpost, Ojai

This adventure hotel about an hour from Santa Barbara features 11 beautifully curated caravans for resting your bones and cookouts, outdoor yoga, and acoustic jam sessions for stirring your spirit.  What's more West Coast than that?

3. Cheshire Cat Inn, Santa Barbara

Tumble down the rabbit hole and into the wonderland that is California at this charming B&B in downtown Santa Barbara.  

Breakfast each morning is an international affair: you'll be treated to  Danish ebelskivers, French toast, Scottish smoked salmon, or Mexican frittatas along with eggs, fruit, cereal, and yogurt.  Curiouser and curiouser!

4. The Standard, Hollywood

Play ping pong on the blue astro-turf pool deck, nap on Egyptian cotton sheets in your room, or take an epic selfie while downing a cocktail in the desert-themed cactus lounge.  It's Hollywood, baby, and you're the star!

Bike rentals, pool cabanas, and easy access to Ocean Beach Park, Gaslamp Quarter, and the famed San Diego Zoo..... we think we've found your home away from home!
