Loved the property, right in the village walkable to everything and in the back yard is park, ocean and sea lions!! The staff was perfect cannot think of 1 thing we didn't like. Loved the happy hour also, half price off amazing glasses of wine which ordinarily would feel pricey

This is a beautiful old hotel (old in style but updated in facilities) in a prime location. We very much enjoyed our stay. The pool area in particular is wonderful for lounging around and relaxing. Staff were unfailingly helpful and friendly, from check-in to check-out. The valet service is not cheap - $30.00 per day - but the convenience of... More

No doubt this place is classy. There is a feel of an older hotel with old school elevators that are slightly slow but functional. There forte is their service. From the valet, front desk etc they were outstanding. Its 30 dollars for valet parking but considering the location this is reasonable. The restaurant is nice. Be aware that they come... More

We love staying here because of the location being so close to the beach. Viewing the sunset is always so lovely. The valet people are so helpful and always give you a nice bottle of cold water to take with you.

The bedrooms were very large with 2 queen size beds and well kept . The service at all events was excellent. The food was terrific at all gatherings. The area is beautiful. The aff was very helpful. I would recommend it for a large group of just a couple going for a restful vacation.

Staying at LA Valencia gives you the feel of heritage with modern facilities. The staff is extremely pleasant, the restaurants are super, the location is fantastic, what else would one wish for. Walking around the hotel you would enjoy the boutiques of LA Jolla or stroll along the Pacific & be exelerated by the magnificent views.

The hotel staff was super friendly and helpful. We had all the accommodations we needed to have a successful, comfortable business meetings in a beautiful location! We took advantage of breakfast, lunch and cocktail hour catering for the events and they did a wonderful job with the food and service.

An amazing property overlooking the Pacific. We celebrated our 34th wedding anniversary and the hotel could not have been more accommodative - from the room upgrade to the chocolate covered strawberries and complimentary champagne - our stay was magical. A five star hotel with great amenities. We will definitely be back.
