The L'Auberge is a great, intimate hotel in the darling little town of Del Mar. The hotel sits up from the beach a bit, but is a short, easy walk down to the beach front. rooms are also appointed in a beach-theme, and have balconies or outdoor spaces to sit out on and gas fireplaces that are a nice touch....

Lovely boutique style hotel with excellent service. Our third floor room was small but comfortable and well-appointed. The balcony was very small and although they claim to have ocean views, you really have to strain your neck to see the ocean. You can tell a lot about an establishment by its employees and L'Auberge has one of the finest staff... More

It's everything everyone says that it is. The GREAT: location, staff, restaurant food, bar, night life, room decor and cleanliness, walk down the hill to the beach, walk to many, many restaurants and shops in downtown Del Mar. The NOT SO GREAT: Water view is from the balcony, rooms are small, vibrant outdoor bar scene makes it noisy on weekend... More

This place just feels SO good. Partly it's the genuine, warm hospitality (shout outs to Taylor at the Front Desk, Dash at the Living Room Bar, Rachel, Jeremy, Noah and Jen at bleu BAR). Partly, it's the oh-so-cozy, comfortable accommodations. It's also the food...including those mini-cupcakes at the Front Desk. And the beverage. The pool bar - bleu BAR -... More

A beautiful hotel in a fabulous location with great service too! If you're looking for an upscale hotel and spa with unpretentious ambiance, can't beat L'Auberge in Del Mar. Conveniently located in the heart of Del Mar, L'Auberge is a gem. A bit pricey, but well worth it. Ocean view rooms, several dining options and all of the best Del... More

The front desk staff were terrific. The location doesn't get much better. The room was appointed very nicely. Unfortunately, during our two and a half days of meetings held inside their conference room, the staff were TERRIBLE. I made a simple request to multiple service staff in the room and all of them simply said, "No." The coffee labeled "decaffeinated"... More

The lovely hotel in the heart of Del Mar is a marvelous haven and a great place to gather. With inside and outside dining and spacious quarters it is the kind of hotel you want to come home to. The food was interesting and plentiful at their Kitchen restaurant and the staff couldn't do enough for us.

We stayed for 3 nights here in August during our trip, the hotel was comfortable and the room was very comfortable, view of the car park but then again we didn't pay for a garden view so no complaints there. Staff were friendly and informative, we were there at the time Robin Williams died so we were reminiscing with the... More

Stayed here for a weekend away this weekend Had a great time. Hotel is beautiful. All staff people were friendly - front desk, concierge, housekeeper, in the bar and restaurant, valets. The room was really nice -- spacious and pretty and quiet. Didn't have a pretty view, but that's not what we paid for; with the shutters closed we didn't... More

There are so many things I love about this hotel... But there are things it lacks. Granted some of the lacking area cannot be controlled. First of all the hotel is very nice. Good service, amazing spa, comfortable beds, friendly staff, very clean and definitely a luxury feel to it. However the U-shape of the building makes it hard to... More
