Hotel's Favorite
I can’t say enough amazing things about La Valencia Hotel! I grew up in La Jolla and La Valencia holds a special place in my heart. It was a place my family and I visited to celebrate happy times and special occasions, and my best friend from high school got married there. La Valencia has always had a certain charm and European flair to it that makes you feel like you’re on holiday in the South of France, or the Italian Riviera. Sadly, I no longer live in La Jolla, but I’m lucky enough to visit often and I always look forward to my stay at La Valencia. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff who are super friendly and always go above and beyond. I have food allergies (I don’t eat dairy or gluten products) and the staff at La Valencia always take great care to make sure my food restrictions are adhered to. I need a refrigerator in my room to store medication, and there is always one waiting for me upon my arrival. I’ve met the manager, Summer, she couldn’t be lovelier, is always very attentive and goes out of her way to make sure I have a wonderful stay. The hotel is absolutely stunning and has been very well maintained. The pool is awesome. The views are to die for, and the location couldn’t be more perfect - right on Prospect Ave - the Rodeo Drive - of La Jolla. The only downside to my La Valencia experience is when I have to leave. I could stay forever, it’s just that kind of hotel!

Shannon At The Bar makes the experience here at La Valencia. She is simple the best. We will come back as long as Shannon is here. The Mai Tai drinks and the flatbread is incredible. My wife and I were so happy to enjoy this time with Shannon facilitating the experience. Five stars.
