My husband and I scored a deal through an online website to the La Valencia and thought we would have a small room in the back. We were surprised to stay in a Villa which included a fireplace, jetted tub and the most comfortable bed we could have imagined. The staff were pleasant and extremely helpful. Although we did not have a view of the ocean, it was only a quick 5 minute walk down to the beach where the sea lions hang out. The only thing we would advise people about is that there is only valet parking for the hotel and the surrounding streets are only 2 hour parking.

Dear Montana Guest -

We're so happy that La V was a great escape - thank you for the nice compliments. Celebrating our 86th year in the heart of the Village of La Jolla, we do have the ideal location for enjoying the best of coastal San Diego. We hope you come back soon.

Cheers,

Mark Dibella,
Managing Director

We spent two nights at this lovely hotel. All staff were very helpful and polite. The hotel is beautiful. Our room (103) was nicely appointed and spacious. Unfortunately most of the windows opened to a view of either a brick wall or a building under construction next door. One window had a nice ocean view though. The hotel is an easy walk to shops and dining in the village. It is also an easy walk to the park and cove. We will definitely stay here next time we are in La Jolla.

Dear LA Guest –

Thank you for selecting La V for your get away and for sharing your great reviews. Our unique boutique hotel as a variety of room views and locations from garden villas to classic suites with pool and coastline views to our intimate vintage rooms with stunning ocean views . . . and yes, a couple have views that include a neighboring wall; I am glad you enjoyed some ocean sites from one of your suite windows.

When you return try out one of our other distinctive rooms, suites and villas- each offers something special.

Many thanks,

Mark Dibella,
Managing Director

We held our daughters Sweet 16 Brunch at the Valencia Hotel which was a huge success.
The staff were excellent from the very moment I contacted them regarding this event.
We worked out all the details with the hotel staff which were courteous and very helpful.
On the day of the event, they had everything we needed ready to go, from the beautiful signage to the big screen TV for the slide show.
Did I mention that the food is fantastic?
I would definitely recommend the Valencia Hotel not only for an excellent stay, as it is truly the best hotel in La Jolla, but to do any kind of event as well.

Room Tip: I didn't stay there on this trip as I am a local, but I have stayed there and it is WONDERFUL

Sweet 16 is just the start!

Thank you for the great complements – we’re very happy that the celebration was a grand success. So next in line will be a college graduation party and then the big wedding so keep in mind that La V is ready and waiting to make your family milestones a tradition.

Many thanks and see you soon,

My daughter Kelly was married at La Valencia last weekend. The setting is gorgeous as is the hotel. We did both the service and reception there, and had several hotel rooms for our group. The staff took great care of us; Shannon, the hotels' consultant, was awesome- professional, knowledgeable and pleasure to work with. The food at the reception was delicious. I highlly recommend La Valencia. My daughter's on her honeymoon right now, but she will be posting her rave reviews as well!

Room Tip: Have the front desk explain the rooms....they are all a little different and the staff is very happy to help you select a room that works best for you.

Our family has used La Valencia for a number of years. Throughout that time, the hotel and its staff have gone out of their way to accommodate us. At the hotel we hosted our parents' 50th wedding anniversary, mother's 75th and 80th birthday celebrations, memorial services, the gamut. And, at each event that we've held at the hotel, they've given us the best accommodations and service available, and helped us put on lovely celebrations. They've even gone out of their way to put us up at the hotel at preferred rates, when it was full. La Valencia is a keeper, and a place we look forward to visiting. It's like coming home in La Jolla. Leo Lopez is a gem there.

Room Tip: Ask for a good-sized room.
