The front desk staff was friendly and helpful when we asked for directions to different attractions. Parking structure is close by although there is no elevator so plan accordingly if you have heavy items to carry to/from the hotel room. There are 4 elevators, but they are slow. Breakfast was good and provided enough variety for our 3 night stay.... More

Dear HawaiiTraveler808, Thank you for being our guest recently and I am terribly sorry for the challenges and experience we delivered to you, upon reading your commentary I have had the opportunity to speak to the Executive Suite Keeper and we were both upset to hear firstly the cleanliness issues and secondly the very poor attention thereafter.

I don't mind paying for valet but at this hotel you are kind of forced to pay for parking no matter what. The main bar closes at 11 pm and the store inside the hotel is tiny and does not have enough stuff if you get in late. The rooms were nice, and very clean. Make sure you pay for... More

Dear RaiderRon H, Delighted that your recent stay was enjoyable, from the comfort of the guest suite and our relaxing atmosphere on the fire pit patio. Sorry about the inconvenience of Indulge Bar closing at 11pm, this is due to ensuring all guests have an enjoyable evening as we have this rather lovely 12 story atrium and noise can travel... More

I felt unsafe and violated at this hotel. Housekeeping had lunch in my room leaving dirty dishes and opened water bottles. They also opened and went through our suitcases. My children were scared and wanted to get out as soon as possible.

Good location near the mall and has a PF Changs right next door. The front desk was quick with check in, that's always nice! Self parking, but no elevator, so you have to drag your bags down the stairs if you didn't already take them up to your room. Had a bag of trash and empty 6 pack of beer... More

No attention paid to bathroom cleanliness. Floor and tile filthy. Sofa in sitting room had been spot cleaned but was obviously dirty. No maid service on third day in hotel.

My partner and I stayed at Embassy Suites La Jolla for 3 nights, checking in on 25th June 2014, and checking out on 28th June.

A very nice hotel with very large rooms. It is a cross from a shopping mall that one daughter is very anxious to see. It also is next door to a P. F. Changes where we ate dinner.

The hotel was no vacancy but that still does not mean that having popcorn in your bed when you pull back the sheets for the first time is acceptable. Food was good in the AM. Make sure to avoid the 01,02,35,36 ending rooms or else you will hear elevators all night long.
