1. Re: Vacation with family

I am assuming since you listed this under California,

you are interested in:

Disneyland/California Adventure:

If case recommend Sheraton Anaheim

The resort is off the Disneyland property but has a shuttle that goes every half hour or so to the front gates. The pool area is great; has some wonderful koi ponds that the whole family enjoys, and has very easy freeway access. The breakfast buffet in the morning is good deal in getting everyone breakfast quickly and on their way to Disneyland.

If you are in the hot tub at night, you can see the Disneyland fireworks from here.

Universal Studios-Hollywood

Recommend: Hilton Hotel Universal City

The Hilton Los Angeles/Universal City is situated at the very entrance to Universal Studios Hollywood and Citywalk. The hotel sits on six and a half acres high on a hill above the Los Angeles entertainment district.

San Francisco

There are lots of nice places to stay in San Francisco.....

It really depends upon what you are interested in doing.

If you're doing the normal touristy things, suggest

Fisherman's Wharf area hotels to stay at. Normal touristy means Alcatraz, Fishermans' Wharf, Gheridelli Square, harbor cruises, etc.

If you want a luxury property suggest the San Francisco Fairmont Hotel or San Francisco Stanford Court. Both have some wonderful restaurants and are close by the downtown shopping areas.
