The Lodge at Torrey Pines is anything but my idea of a lodge. The only thing that resembles a lodge is the mission style decor...other than that it is a first class hotel all the way. The staff is outstanding from the person that cleans your room to the front desk staff.
Our room was terrific--nice bathroom with great bath products and wonderful towels. Each evening the turndown service included not only turning down the bed but placing rugs by your bed with your slippers on it and little surprises on your pillow, Each day the robes were re-hung and tied.
I felt like they thought of everything--two luggage racks, two chairs at the desk, a leather chair with ottoman, make up mirrors for the women and a patio or balcony for sitting outside and enjoying the weather.
My husband and I ate a late dinner at the Grill the night we arrived and lunch one day. The wait staff were excellent at the service aspect as well as making suggestions for what to have for the meal. The wine list was quite nice with reasonable prices. We had a $40 bottle of albarino. Our dinner consisted of a chicken stew with mashed potatoes and roasted root vegetables.. We also had a salad. Total bill was $115 including the wine and gratuity..The Grill offered the opportunity to eat outside if you wanted. I had delicious homemade granola and blueberry pancakes for breakfast one morning and the wait staff suggested that I get a smaller portion and she reduced the price of the bill.
As my husband was here for a conference many of our meals were planned therefore the times to enjoy the restaurantsl were somewhat limited.
The surrounding grounds were beautiful with many walkways for running or walking. The pool area was large enough to accommodate families and also adults relaxing at the pool and reading.
It was an enjoyable trip and we would love to revisit it again.
