Lobby is beautiful. Loved the bar! The staff was very friendly and helpful. We got there just when the dining area was closing, but the host took our order and served it at the bar. The panini was absolutely delicious.
We wanted to visit Mission Beach and LaJolla. The concierge suggested taking the bus verses taking a cab. We are so glad we followed her advise. Not only did it save us money, but gave us the opportunity to meet the locals. We met a gentlemen who told us all about LaJolla and made some great recommendations on what to see. Thanks to his recommendation, we had a cocktail on the terrace of the Valencia Hotel. Wonderful view! We would have missed out on a great adventure if it wasn't for the concierge's recommendations. (Wish I remembered her name.)
This was also a good location. Only a couple blocks from the Gas Lamp District. (And close to public transportation.)
