We had several meals here out on the patio looking over the ocean. Service was helpful and professional, and food was quite good. Our room was outstanding, large well designed bathroom with big shower, two sinks to keep both of us happy, quiet at night, and very comfortable bed. The location is perfect for a visit to La Jolla.

Its a landmark hotel in San Diego and worth a visit even if you do not spend the night. We did spend the night and the rooms are ok. A little dated but you can live with that knowing you are in a stunning location. The pool area is wonderful to relax by and having breakfast lunch or dinner on... More

The location of this hotel in La Jolla can't be beat. It is situated in the middle of all of the shops and restaurants, but overlooks the ocean. The view of palm trees and ocean from the terrace restaurant is amazing. The room we had was very large and beautifully furnished. Marble bathroom with separate deep tub and large shower.... More

We spent three nights in La Valencia recently to complete our California road trip. The hotel was stunning throughout and the staff made us very welcome. We had spent most of the last two weeks on the road and it was nice just to chill round the pool with the excellent bar staff readily available to help. Rooms were spacious... More

We enjoyed our stay very much. Hotel is spotless and inviting. Very relaxing. We did have dinner at the restaurant in the hotel, La Med. I must say, it was disappointing . My husband had the ribeye. It came out dry, tough and difficult to chew. He ate very little of it. I had a pasta dish with the world's... More

Relax and enjoy yourself at this Luxury Hotel in La Jolla! First class accommodations begin at the front door. The rooms, pool and evening lounge at Sunset are incomparable. San Diego hotels are expensive but this resort experience is worth every penny. "La V" is a journey back to a more peaceful time in America!

This hotel is indeed charming, and the location on the water is great. But my room looked out over Prospect St, so I had some noise and no ocean view. The room was a decent size and nicely appointed, although the air conditioning struggled to keep it sufficient cool. Overall, it was decent but I left a bit disappointed given... More

Right on the water, with a lobby from yesteryear. Potted palms greet you as you walk through the 1920s-1930s viv. Gracious hosts, doormen and staff greet you, and as you tell them you are only there to look, they still make you feel at home. A beautiful restaurant and individual bar are available to the public as well as guests,... More
