Hotel La Jolla features updated rooms, outstanding customer service and a quiet setting to relax and enjoy the area. Located near a busy intersection, but in a quiet neighborhood, you might pass the entrance if you don't play close attention. This first impression makes a difference. Driving up the fire pot lined driveway to the hotel's lobby at night clearly indicates the hotel's commitment to making your stay a memorable one. Rooms are updated and offer interesting and sometimes wonderful features. The glass shower in our room offered a mechanical shade that could be closed to allow for privacy but opened to view the ocean if you are so inclined, a very nice feature in such picturesque surrondings. While not directly on the ocean, the hotel offers some of the best views in town. Hotel La Jolla offers it's main restaurant on it's top floor. It offers good food at reasonable (for La Jolla) prices. Menu is adventurous but sometimes veers too far to one side (4 pork dishes can be a little overwhelming), but the soups and appetizers are top notch. The hotel's outdoor bar is very nice, again lined with fireplaces and fire pots that make it very cozy and welcoming. Bar staff are very nice and know how to make a real mixed drink the way you would like it. The staff provided transportation in a five mile radius of the hotel, both drop off and pick up, very friendly and prompt. The maintainence staff was responsive and did a great job. When we stayed, hotel was very uncrowded which made the strong service even better. We were not ignored nor overserved. For less that $200 per night you cannot find a better place in La Jolla. We will return.
