Called “the happiest city in America”, San Luis Obispo sits among the beautiful rolling hills of California’s Central Coast -- a true getaway for those looking for peace, luxury, and an escape from the pressures of today’s hectic world.
Vineyards and wineries are in abundance here -- you could easily spend all day at tastings before heading back to one of IHG’s hotels in San Luis Obispo. There are also agriculture and eco-tours for people looking to get close to nature and learn some interesting things about the way food is grown. Wherever you go in this city, the beach will always be nearby, with plenty of secluded spots along the coast to just sit back and unwind with a good book.
If you’re in a more active mood, go mountain biking on Cerro San Luis or hiking up Bishop Peak or any of the other great scenic mountain paths in the area. Or, stroll through the California Polytechnic State University campus, and nurture your mind while you get a little exercise.
Be sure to enjoy the city’s quirky, cultural side as well, from the Mardi Gras celebration to an annual film festival to a diversity of outdoor sporting events. There a number of locally famous spots to visit, too, including the Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa and the odd but intriguing Bubblegum Alley.

helpful. I have been staying at Candlewood Suites for over 4 years for business purposes, so that alone should tell you how I rate this hotel and their services.
