Beautiful hotel. The views are wonderful, the food was delicious. We really enjoyed the breakfast/lunch balcony overlooking the pool and the ocean. The staff was exceptional - thanks Rob at the pool bar for your above and beyond attentiveness. Well situated with short walks to beach, restaurants and shopping. Uber was never more than a few minutes wait for trips... More

We came to eat here for breakfast on the patio, overlooking the ocean. Our Eggs Benedict was the best I have tasted in a long time. Price was about $16. It was enough for my hubby & I to share. The side salad was a perfect compliment. Great service. It's a charming place with just enough ocean breeze taking you... More

I travel allot and this might go down as my all time favorite. Fantastic service all the way from the front desk to the maids. The sunset views of the Pacific is fantastic from the Med balcony. Full service pool service with fantastic ocean views. I will definitely be back.

A beautiful, romantic hotel in the center of La Jolla. Pricey, but great view from the lobby and dining areas, great food and service. Many rooms do not have a view of the water, so book carefully. Valet parking available.

Probably the best location in La Jolla, friendly staff, good food in their restaurants, but the rooms are small, old with very poor mantainance, old carpets, dirty spots in the wall etc etc ......a disappointment ....! Things you wouldn't like to see after paying $500 per night....

My family held a surprise birthday party for me at The La Valencia aka Pink Lady. What a fantastic time we all had. From the outstanding staff, the location, the rooms and the meals, they could not have selected a more enjoyable site. The staff catered to me. The chef had exquisite culinary skills and the restaurant staff ensured everyone... More

Fabulous spot, gorgeous location, helpful friendly staff, wonderful views. If you are going to be in the area, this is the place to stay. From front desk, the concierge, the bar and wait staff and housekeeping, everyone was friendly and helpful. Wonderful stay, would go back anytime I'm in the area.

One of the best rooms I've had in a long time. The views were awesome and the service was great. We ate in the hotel one evening and the food was wonderful. The bar was an excellent place to relax and our service provider was friendly and efficient.

Impeccable service, exquisite tower room, lovely staff, unbeatable view. Probably one of our favorite hotel stays in our twenty three years of marriage. Can't compete with the incredible location right above the sea lions either. What a memory!
