The La Valencia is an iconic California landmark built in the 1920's. In the heart of La Jolla Village it is a great location with a charming exterior and old world lobby... but it is mostly downhill from there.
The rooms are very small and the price exceeds any relative value. Simply not worth the price for what you get.
The new La Rue Cafe is horrible. Cold and without any redeeming qualities. The menu leave a lot to be desired and the service is cold and aloof if you can get any. Give it a miss.
There is a veranda restaurant that is lovely on a nice day...great view of the Cove and a good place for a pleasant lunch and a glass of wine.
