In 1999, SLO received the Great American Main Street Award by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. The charm and accessibility of our downtown remains and is yours to discover. Explore the local galleries and museums that celebrate the creativity of the region and discover why San Luis Obispo is called “America’s happiest city.” Mission Plaza, where our city was founded as part of the California Mission system, is filled with history. And for those traveling with kids, be sure to visit the San Luis Obispo Children’s Museum, a destination for discovery and play.
As one of the most conveniently located San Luis Obispo hotels downtown, a range of restaurants is nearby. On Thursday evenings, visit the vibrant Farmers’ Market. Meander along Higuera Street, taste some of the local flavors, take in the music and be part of a great SLO tradition.
In addition, the vibrant campus is minutes away, making us one of the best hotels near Cal Poly SLO. And if you’re looking for California Central Coast hotels, we’re in the heart of it all. Ask us for a map of San Luis Obispo and begin your own discovery.
