Leo and his team made our business luncheon an exceptional experience. The setting in The Med was delightful and picturesque, our servers were very attentive, and the food was delicious. They added an extra touch by placing our company logo on the printed menu. A wonderful time was had by all - we had our company Holiday party there a... More

From the moment I arrived at the hotel, I was treated like a queen. For I am a queen. My room was not ready, but the concierge Nancy Hirsch and staff on that morning met every expectation I could've ever wanted. I could not believe that a hotel with old charm was still top-notch. The location, of the hotel could... More

Everything went perfectly, the food was amazing, and multiple people told me how impressed they were with La Valencia and very helpful staff. It really couldn't have gone any better, we were very happy with it all!

My fiance and I stayed at La Valencia for two nights, while visiting the San Diego area. It was beautiful!! The pool was gorgeous and the proximity to everything was perfect. We walked each morning along the beach and did plenty of shopping. Everything is right there, even a Starbucks for an early morning coffee!

We held our company meeting at La Valencia and it was a huge success! Leo our event planner was super helpful and very accommodating. The views are amazing, the food was awesome, the rooms were nice and the staff was friendly. The hotel is located right in the middle of town so it's walking distance to shops, restaurants, bars etc.... More

We originally had booked another hotel for Spring Break but a friend who grew up in San Diego said I had to switch to La Valencia Hotel and I am so glad we did. The staff was marvelous and so friendly. The hotel is classic and beautiful from the pool to the cocktail lounge. There was so much to do... More

My first visit to the San Diego area and I was impressed two minutes outside of the airport. Beautiful skyline views over the harbor. The cab ride to the hotel was a pricey $60 with tip. You might try to find an alternative-wish I had. I arrived at the hotel early (10 am) and to my surprise my room was... More

This hotel is in a perfect location, and the views from the Villa Suite are lovely. The suite was relatively spacious for an old hotel, with a fireplace and a patio. The staff were very nice. While there was a lot of talk about a big renovation, I don't think it was very thorough. My suite had marks all over... More

Last week we stayed at the La Valencia hotel for two nights. My husband had business in the area and we decided to stay a few nights. The hotel is beautiful and has an old world feel. We stayed in the tower with an ocean view. The room was nice, but very small and the view was from the side.... More

We recently held our mid-year Board Meeting at the La Valencia hotel, and the exceptional staff made sure that our meeting and its related networking functions went flawlessly. With plenty of nicely appointed hotel rooms for our guests, the location and venue couldn't have been any better.
