We got married at the La Valencia in May 2014 and could not be more pleased with the world class experience we had. The charm and beauty of this historic hotel is unparalleled, the location is ideal, the grounds are beautifully maintained, the drinking and dining options are outstanding, and the not enough can be said about the entire staff at La V. We worked primarily with Bobby Fader during our wedding planning and were very impressed by the outstanding service that Bobby provided to make our wedding day a great success. Bobby is very easy to work with. He listened to our wants, made great recommendations, and is impeccable in his attention to details. Bobby truly went above and beyond and the result was a perfectly executed wedding and reception. We held our reception in La V's Verandah Room, which offers amazing views in a very elegant setting. The beef tenderloin was that was served was phenomenal, and the lamb and scallops that were served during our cocktail hour were superb.
We got married in the Garden of La V, which is meticulously landscaped and is an idyllic setting for a wedding. The Garden overlooks the Pacific and La V's wonderful pool area. The pool area is very relaxing and had awesome bartenders. We ordered food for poolside and really enjoyed the experience. We recommend the Cubano with a mojito. When the La V was renovated, the addition of Cafe La Rue added a lot of value. The food at Cafe La Rue is also very good, there is a great beer and wine selection here, and the artwork alone makes this place cool.
We stayed the first three nights of our wedding week in a King Ocean View room. We had a corner room, which had a balcony overlooking La Jolla Cove. The views are amazing and leave you feeling inspired when you wake up in the morning. There is a very good chance you will rest well since the beds are so comfortable here. We upgraded to one of the villas for the last 3 nights of our wedding weekend and were completely blown away. The villa we stayed in was one level above the street, but we never heard any of the commotion outside. Equipped with a fireplace, wet bar, chaise lounge and patio table, and huge bathroom with a walk-in/tub, the villa defines true luxury. Overall, the La Valencia Hotel is absolutely exceptional. We had a five star experience here and are forever grateful to everyone at the hotel who helped make the experience so great. We can't wait to return again to relive an incredible week.
