We stay at Kimpton hotels across the country. They are always very interesting in decor and guests. The Hotel La Jolla is a lovely mix of beach and funky. The staff is excellent. When I had an issue regarding a promotion for booking, I was contacted immediately by manager Ruth Maldonado and she resolved my request both with a professional and personal response not often encountered in hotel service.
The hotel is a remodel and we were assured the management is working on the issue of noisy air conditioning units. The rooms are decorated to match the theme of the hotel. The beds surprisingly comfortable. If you are staying in an ocean view room, request the north side of the hotel as the outdoor restaurant Hiatus is lively until 2 AM and for a light sleeper could be an issue. Kimptons always delight with a great wine and small plates reception and the Hotel La Jolla's was very much up to standard. The restaurant Cusp on the 11th floor is well worth the treat to truly exceptional gourmet dining at very palatable prices. The view table are worth the ask when you reserve.
The only downside with all hotels these days is the parking fees. At a hotel like La Jolla when parking is right in front of you and at the rear of the hotel it is difficult to understand the $28 charge. It appears there is at least availability for one car per room. Cutting those rates in half would be welcome anywhere not just Hotel La Jolla.
We highly recommend Hotel La Jolla for its atmosphere and its convenient location to the very beachy La Jolla Shores community. Definitely has the east coast beach town vibe and welcome from the congestion of a summer day or night in downtown La Jolla. Hotel La Jolla is pet and kid friendly as well.
We will return! And thanks to the very accommodating staff for your kindness and excellent service!
