Hotel has been renovated and the rooms have nice decor. They were very accommodating when I asked to switch to a room further away from the side with the heavier traffic noise. Good views from upper floors. We paid $40 extra to have the view and were glad that we did. Excellent food and service and views from their restaurant CUSP. Gym was small but adequate. We used the hotel car service to get to downtown La Jolla (too far to walk) for art galleries and dinner. It's first come first served. We did not have to wait long. In the morning you can grab coffee at Starbucks which is right next door and then walk to La Jolla shores. Hotel has free coffee in the AM and hosted wine hour in the evening. We had a good experience!
