The hotel, staff, rooms were great. The hotel decor is very cool. Rooms are nice size with great views. I did not realize the hotel was pet friendly until I arrived. I asked at the desk if any rooms did not allow pets. All rooms are pet friendly. I was assured after pet is in a room the room gets... More

Kimpton does it again! I 'phoned ahead to arrange flowers for my wife's birthday and they provided those, plus sparkling wine and massive cake free of charge. All staff very friendly and eager to help, without being over-effusive or familiar. Very high level of service all round and great value with things like happy hour and complimentaries etc. Lovely room... More

Hotel LaJolla - Unbelievably friendly staff, wonderful décor, nice rooms and a picture perfect view. With the ocean just a few steps away, the location provides easy access to Torrey Pines, Del Mar and downtown San Diego. I look forward to returning to Hotel LaJolla.

Staff was all sooo nice, from front desk to valet. We mentioned it was our anniversary and they surprised us with chocolate dipped strawberries and a bottle of wine in our room! We ate breakfast at the restaurant, which was delicious. Pool area was small but nice; there were several different seating areas so it didn't seem crowded. Overall experience... More

I just got back from spending 5 nights at Hotel La Jolla. After being undecided as to whether or not I really liked this hotel, I came to the conclusion that it is a 3.5 out of 5 stars for me. I'll give the bad first and then good. Cons: 1. If you need to park at the hotel overnight... More

The staff were always pleasant and willing to help with whatever we needed. The recommendations from the shuttle drivers were great. We would not have enjoyed our trip as much if it weren't for the staff at Hotel La Jolla. Some of the great features. Location - 10 minute walk to the beach Free shuttle within La Jolla - These...

Spent the weekend here with friends for a wedding. Room was very nice. Staff was very accommodating. Poolside bar was a great meeting spot. Never got to try the restaurant. Only parking option is valet but that was the only negative. Close to everything.

This was our first stay at a Kimpton Hotel and we were impressed. The front desk staff was extremely friendly, as were the valets. Everyday they asked how our day went and if we needed anything. We had an ocean view room on the 9th floor, the sunsets were amazing! The room was really nice and the bed was comfortable.... More

With spectacular Ocean views and sunsets, a walk to the beach location, and walkable to many restaurants, this hotel is all about location,location, location. The interior design is trendy and fun. Our room was comfortable, the patio great for our dogs (yes they are dog friendly) the hotel restaurant Cusp offered excellent food with a killer view. Morning coffee is... More

I am a big Kimpton fan, but this one is an odd one. The rooms are fine, nice views, but its an odd hotel. The public spaces are few and not very comfortable. You can tell that they put a lot of money into a recent renovation, which was nice. The staff was efficient and helpful. I would say if... More
