The Hotel La Jolla is a wonderful spot for travel with family or a romantic get away. The lobby is a welcome place to hang out after an active day or move outside to the patio bar to catch a game on the big screen. Heaters and a fire add to the comfort and ambiance on cooler evenings.

The staff was so friendly and warm. From the moment we arrived, we were greeted with smiles. The room was clean and spacious enough for a family of 4.

This is an exceptional hotel, located in beautiful La Jolla near UCSan Diego, with a view of the ocean. From start to finish, it was the best hotel experience my husband and I have ever had.

We came to the hotel for a wedding weekend with our extended family. The hotel staff was amazing, and so friendly! Each morning, our kids raced downstairs for the complimentary hot chocolate and toppings, and the coffee was superb too. The rehearsal dinner starred outside by the bar, and finished upstairs in the restaurant. Both were so beautiful and the... More

Kimpton leads the way for Value and forward ahead thinking. As a business agent, I am always traveling last moment and with my dog. Sometimes I make last minute reservations and the other hotels I usually stay at are not in the cities I go to. Kimpton has numerous properties, they act like a W chain, treat their guest special,...

Stayed here 4 nights. Started off on the 10th floor, however, loud traffic noise from La Jolla Parkway/Torrey Pines Rd as well as noise from restaurant above (11th floor) unbearable (they hadn't even opened yet!). Could hear every step taken by restaurant staff, as well as every chair dragged across the room. Luckily there was room available to move to... More
