We had a wonderful stay. Everything was so perfect, including the ocean view and breeze. We love Kimpton Hotels. They had fun games in the lobby living room. The staff was super friendly, but professional. I want to be by the lovely outdoor fire pit now!!!

We stayed at the Hotel La Jolla for the Thanksgiving weekend and found the location and staff to be great. The valets were very welcoming and happy to answer questions and assist with information on local sites. We upgraded to a corner suite, which had fantastic views but lacked insulation. The street noise disrupted our sleep each night. The only... More

Courtney S, First off, thank you for the candor used in writing your review! It sounds like we got close with our friendliness, location and views but definitely failed to impress from a room cleanliness standpoint. I am very disappointed myself to see that you had such a substandard experience in that area and can assure you this feedback has... More

This was our second stay at the Hotel La Jolla in as many weeks. We initially visited in early November and had an Ocean View room on a high floor. The room was fantastic - trendy but inviting. The staff was great. The nightly cocktail hour, afternoon smoothies and coffee in the morning are all great touches and don't even... More

It was our first time staying at this refurbished hotel and we were not disappointed. Kimpton Hotels almost always have a surprise and this property had a Hawaiian Island vibe with Palm lined driveway and fire pits on the approach. Also, a great outdoor bar to sip your evening complimentary wine which is again a Kimpton touch. The rooms were... More

This is an older property renovated mostly successfully. The hotel decor in the lobby and bar is quite au courant. Our room was very nice with a great shower opening to the room through a glass wall with a fun curtain which can be activated with a wall switch (for privacy. The halls are not carpeted and can be quite... More

Great location, and amazing shuttle service into town with the friendliest drivers ever. All of the staff had great customer service skills; they were really friendly and service oriented. Very cool decor, and wonderful extras like free s'mores kits for kids at night. Wonderful outdoor bar/fireplace area. I would return for sure.

Wonderful property with great views, friendly-attentive staff, and located in La Jolla. The perfect trio in my book. All rooms and the bar have breathtaking views of the Pacific. I would easily move in this hotel and live there. The location on the hill is primo. Definitely a pleasant surprise.
