Beautifully appointed and tastefully renovated hotel in the center of all the action in La Jolla. We had a suite that was well appointed and spacious. Great restaurants in the hotel and in close proximity.

My husband and I recently stayed at La Valencia in one of their Villas. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel is beautiful and the staff/service are exceptional! Special thanks to Nancy, the concierge, and Bill in the bar for going above and beyond to make our stay amazing. The location is very convenient to not only the ocean but... More

Business center was out of order as was the hot tub, much of the hotel was in disrepair. Went to the pool around 5pm and was informed the bar was closed, even though the pool is open until 10pm-really, no happy hour cocktail by the pool to watch the sunset? Only one elevator which seemed to take forever to arrive... More

Booked a private room for a half day business meeting. The view and breeze off the water was lovely, lunch was delicious and it was private enough for an uninterrupted business meeting. My salad came out wrong the first time and was corrected in minutes! Will definitely use the facilities again and next time stay overnight at the hotel. It... More

Beautiful hotel with beautiful setting steps from the cove. Rooms have been updated. Only complaint was that the bathroom was tiny. We stayed several times and haven't been disappointed. You'll get exercise walking to and from hotel up and down the steps

There are many lovely hotels in beautiful places in the world, but the La Valencia while being a exquisite hotel in an absolutely gorgeous setting (if you doubt me you can walk into the lobby, continue straight through the La Sala Lounge to the gorgeous picture window at the far end of the room and gaze out onto the grounds...

This hotel hearkens back to an earlier time when La Jolla was a little hamlet and on the cusp of becoming a wealthy suburb of San Diego. It seems to have been built in stages so the layout is a bit of a hodgepodge, but this only adds to its charm. The rooms are large and at least mine came... More

What was done right was truly fabulous!!! The staff was very pleasant and attentive with the exception of the bartender that seemed overly worked and stressed about fixing drinks and getting our bill so we could make our dinner reservations. The valets were great every time we needed the car during our week there as was everyone else we encountered.... More
