Once again, we are not short of recommendations for California when it comes to luxury places to stay; with hotels, inns and ranches aplenty. For those searching for isolation, we've got the perfect hideaways deep in the forests of Yosemite National Park for you. Or how about the Post Ranch Inn, which is as close as you can physically get to the breath-taking views of the Big Sur coast, as it quite literally hangs off the edge of the cliff. For a taste of classic Hollywood, the Beverly Hills Hotel, or 'Pink Palace' as it is also known, is located just a stone's throw away from Rodeo Drive and other iconic locations, with the hotel itself having played host to many of the world's elite over the years. These and many more are among our top picks for luxury hotels in California.
