My husband and I visited the hotel in April and thought it was beautiful. The view from our room was breathtaking. The location was perfect for sight seeing and the service was great!!!

We had a spectacular time while staying at The Grande Colonial La Jolla for a friends wedding. The location was perfect - we never drove our car once for the weekend. So much is in walking distance. Beautiful view of the beach. The staff was attentive to every detail from check in to check out.

I would recommend this hotel to family and friends.

We were looking for an intimate venue for our New Year's Day wedding and we found it at the Grande Colonial! The staff was very personable and worked closely with us to create the perfect experience for both us as a couple and our extended family that stayed at the hotel for the holiday weekend. We enjoyed sitting in front of the fire in the beautiful main lobby on New Year's Eve visiting with family and friends, ordering drinks from the connecting bar, and welcoming in the New Year. We also enjoyed being pampered on our wedding day as we ordered in -room massages and room service before our afternoon ceremony. All details of our ceremony were executed perfectly and the La Jolla room reception venue was divine. Our party enjoyed a wedding dinner, and cake, prepared on site at NINE-TEN. The food maintained the suburb restaurant-quality taste that NINE TEN is known for despite our group size. The rooms in the main hotel were older but well-maintained. The beds and furniture were new and very comfortable! One of our guests stayed in the more modern suites, located on site, and enjoyed a huge picture window with a beautiful view of the ocean, a private lobby, as well as a full kitchen. After our ceremony we were able to walk down the hill to the beach where we had additional wedding photos taken and were congratulated by many of the beaches visitors! We have no complaints. Our wedding weekend was absolutely perfect thanks to the personal attention of the Grande Colonial staff and the beautiful wedding and reception venues at the Grande Colonial La Jolla. We look forward to returning for our 1st anniversary.

I recently organized a business meeting at the Grande Colonial. Their Executive Meeting Specialist gave fabulous recommendations for the dinner menu and was extremely helpful with organizing the event. Even with all the changes I made to the event order and room reservations, the Grande Colonial staff was extremely patient and understanding. When I went to visit the hotel, I found it to be extremely charming and welcoming. I didn't get a chance to have dinner there, but I heard from a colleague that the food was outstanding. I highly recommend the Grande Colonial Hotel!!

We recently held a small, three day workshop at The Grande Colonial. The service we received from the hotel was nothing short of spectacular. From organizing the workshop, making on-the-fly adjustments to improve the event, to maximizing the value of our contracted food and beverage minimums, the sales and catering departments were efficient, friendly, and attentive.

Our attendees loved the character of the hotel, it's proximity to the ocean, and the quality of the food and drink.

Given our experience, we plan to make the workshop an annual event at The Grande Colonial.
