I was in town for a wedding. I arrived at 5:30 pm only to be told the room was not ready. Check in is at 4. I had a 6 pm rehearsal dinner for a wedding and needed to change and shower. The front desk clerk seemed uninterested in helping me (or the other guests who also didn't have a room to go to.) I had no time to shower or change, so did so in a friends room. The next day before the actual wedding, I went to take a shower. The handle was basically not attached to the tub and water was spraying out from the faucet. I couldn't get any water to come out the showerhead and it was only cold water, I couldn't adjust because the handle was off. They fixed it after I left but it was too late. This hotel is a major waste of money.
All in the hotel was great. The staff, the cleanliness, the room and they even have some plant based options on their menu which I really appreciate. I highly recommend this hotel as is the best location in San Diego too! I'm a frequent traveler and this was a top of the line experience
I found this property to be very clean and well-maintained. The staff is friendly and professional, and both the food and the dining experience at "Drift" (the on-site restaurant) are excellent. The location provides easy access to UCSD, La Jolla, Torrey Pines golf course and nature reserve, and many other popular site. I would definitely stay here again.
Outwardly the property looks nice. Once inside the rooms, they needed some attention. Seems like the rooms have not been attended to since the pandemic. There were a couple of door handles that were broken.
Awesome experience all the way through - great amenities and service - the fire pit is amazing - I typically stay here for work but it's a great way to relax too - I only hope to be able to try the pool on a future visit.
You will not be disappointed staying at the Hyatt Regency La Jolla. Everything is there to help you enjoy your stay. The location is also ideal. You can walk to Whole Foods or Trader Joe's as well as other small restaurants.
I traveled to SD for a quick weekend training. The hotel was conveniently a short drive to UCSD. It also had a shopping center a block over. Everything you could need during a trip was in that shopping center so I really appreciated that. It was also a quick 15 minute drive to and from the airport.
We stayed for a holiday weekend. We have been coming here since it was an upscale hotel about 20 years ago, and for the most part it's held up well. However, as with many hotels since COVID began, the hotel now advertises as dog friendly, and they are not kidding. From the time we parked in the garage to the time we reached the check in desk, we encountered 3 dogs. Two large dogs were using the planters surrounding the La Jolla ballroom as toilets. The third dog was a medium size terrier in the lobby jumping and pulling at the end of the leash. The owner was oblivious. The dog nearly knocked over a small child and was all over the market place. The owner then dragged the dog down the hall into the restaurant. Yuk. Unsanitary. The next day we got on the elevator on the ground floor with another man, and our next stop was - dog. This guy rolls into the elevator with a huge stroller loaded with La Croix and holding a dog. The dog was fussing and growling and the man kept talking to it in a baby voice telling the dog everything is going to be OK. I was very uncomfortable being packed in the elevator with an angry dog, having already been the victim of a dog bite by a strange dog. Before the end of our stay, we encountered more dogs using the planters outside the La Jolla ballroom as toilets. Beware if you are thinking of renting this space! Otherwise, the room was decent, although the coffee maker broke and it was a challenge getting a replacement. The pool had noisy kids in it everyday, so don't plan on relaxing in a chair or cabana.

The hotel, the gym, the staff were all exceptional. I was treated beautifully..Greeted cordially, and the parking gentlemen were so pleasant and helpful..The biggest shock was the parking fees--$32 per day. If you wanted valet it is $42....Maybe this is normal now..I was just surprised. Bottom line, great room, easy to get to from the 5, beautiful property....would recommend.
I originally was booked at the Marriott because my daughter was dancing there. last minute, I changed it to this hotel because it was slightly cheaper. anyone who has a child that dances knows if you can save a little money do it! between the valet parking price and the extra fee they charge I ended up paying almost $100 more than I would have paid if I would’ve just stayed at the Marriott. The hotel was very nice though and I would stay again.
