Lush natural landscape, historic sites and celebrated wineries all form a part of San Luis Obispo’s reputation as “the happiest city in America.” Add 306 days of temperate weather per year, and guests at our San Luis Obispo hotel are sure to find something to smile about too.
Hike, bike and frolic in the fresh air—San Luis Obispo has more than 6,500 acres of open space for outdoor activities, not to mention abundant Pacific Ocean escapes such as Avila Beach. You can savor regional wines in local restaurants or visit the vineyards a short drive from your hotel in San Luis Obispo.
Our accommodations are also minutes from the historic downtown area, perfect for a walking tour. Make a mandatory stop at the 18th-century Spanish church, Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa.
After your history fix, check out the city’s unusual utility boxes, painted by local artists. Take quirky to the next level at Bubble Gum Alley, which is adorned with the gum of generations past and present, and make your sticky contribution for a quarter. At the city’s Thursday evening Farmers’ Market, you can sample local produce and listen to live music before returning—undoubtedly with a grin—to your San Luis Obispo accommodations.
