Hotels in San Diego

Close to the Mexican border, San Diego is certainly one of the most attractive and desirable living destinations in North America. The city is renowned for its mild winters and pleasantly warm summers, and is home to several fabulous sandy beaches.

Founded in the 1760s, San Diego was, until the 1820s, part of the Spanish Empire, and was not annexed into the expanding United States until the 1840s. Now, this city accommodates more than 200 cruise ships each year, and, rather surprisingly, contains more than 7,000 farms.

The San Diego Zoo

Arguably the leading attraction in the city, the San Diego Zoo contains hundreds of species represented by thousands of animals and is one of the most visited zoos in the United States. The zoo, which was founded in 1916, also has more than a quarter of a million member households and hundreds of thousands of exotic plants spread across a 100-acre area.

SeaWorld™ San Diego

Celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2014, SeaWorld™ San Diego is a major theme park and water attraction attracting well over four million visitors each year. The 190-acre park includes a special dolphin and penguin exhibition, a Shipwreck Rapids attraction, an adrenaline-boosting Journey to Atlantis rollercoaster, and plenty of other themed attractions that will entertain the whole family.

La Jolla Cove

When you visit the La Jolla Cove, you'll almost feel like you're in the Caribbean with its pristine white sands and turquoise waters. The beach contains several striking caves, and is a popular place for scuba diving, swimming, and, for those who simply prefer to sit back and relax, witnessing those wonderful Pacific sunsets.

Balboa Park

Explore this majestic landscaped park, which is 1,200 acres and is named after Vasco Núñez de Balboa, the famous Spanish explorer. The park, which is now a National Historic Landmark District, features the beautiful California Bell Tower, a Desert Cactus Garden, and various other intriguing cultural and natural landmarks, and celebrated its centenary in 1968. Balboa Park is also home to many of California's most popular museums such as the San Diego Natural History Museum, the San Diego Museum of Man, and the San Diego Museum of Art.

Dining suggestions

As you can probably imagine, there are thousands of restaurants in San Diego, although if you're looking for some delicious American cuisine, you could consider Snooze, Cottage, Cody's or Nine-Ten, or Suhia Ota for some delightful sushi. If you're after some mouthwatering Italian food, try the Cucina Urbana restaurant, Parma Cucina Italiana, or Devine Pastabilities, or choose Truluck's Seafood Steak and Crab - La Jolle for other tantalising dishes.


For optimum comfort, stay at the luxury boutique Andaz San Diego hotel, the opulent Manchester Grand Hyatt San Diego, or the stylish Residence Inn San Diego Downtown/Gaslamp Quarter. Other superb San Diego hotels you can consider include the sophisticated Courtyard San Diego Old Town, the charming Hilton San Diego Bayfront, or the value-for-money Four Points by Sheraton San Diego Downtown.
