We stayed at the Empress for 3 nights and had a standard room with two beds. Ideally we would have liked 2 rooms as it was my mom, niece, brother and myself, but rooms in La Jolla are quite expensive. However the location was great. Lots of shops and restaurants within walking distance. Beach about 2 blocks away. Lego Land and Sea World were about 30 min away (20 the way my brother drives har har). The staff was very friendly. They had fresh apples every morning and housekeeping brought us chocolates in the evening :D I don't normally eat a big breakfast so the pastries, waffles, yogurt, hard boiled eggs and drinks were plenty for us! Room was clean, a little tight for 4 people but nothing unbearable. I didn't care for the pocket sliding door to the the bathroom but I got used to it. Nice big shower and lots of hot water, plenty for all 4 of us! Would definitely stay here again. Valet parking is $18 a day, I think parking is free on Sundays.
