Food service was a bit slow
Luxury in an unparalleled location!
The service is outstanding. Every team member at every level cannot do enough for you. The grounds are beautiful overlooking the Pacific Ocean. All shops and restaurants are within walking distance of the hotel.
There is nothing about this hotel that you will not like!
The room was tiny, very uncomfortable, and lousy view.The charge for the room was ridiculous. We also had to pay $30 to park her car.,,
The pool is very nice and most of the staff are friendly.
They didn't answer their main telephone number, at all, in the days leading up to my arrival. They also do a poor job of warning guests that July 4 fireworks cannot be viewed from the hotel unless you are in a private reserved area. Missing much of the fireworks while exploring the hotel for a non-exclusive vantage point was, needless to say, a bummer. Housekeeping was marginal: some room service items weren't removed, shampoo/toiletries weren't replenished, and drain in shower was clogged with sand upon arrival.
Escape the ordinary at San Diego Hotels’ La Valencia Hotel in La Jolla. The Mediterranean retreat overlooks La Jolla Cove and wears its dramatic history that dates back to its opening in 1926. The Pink Lady of La Jolla survived through the Depression and World War II before being acquired by La Valencia and becoming a hideaway for names like Gregory Peck and Charlton Heston.
The lavish lifestyle of the hotel’s early years is captured in the Vintage, Classic, Villa, and ICON Collection accommodations. From chic comforts that embody the spirit of La Valencia’s history to the panoramic views of La Jolla Cove and lush gardens, there is something for all travelers at this Southern California retreat.
The glamour of Hollywood is captured in each room through deluxe amenities including a flatscreen TV, imported linens, Euro-style bathrooms, branded robes, dual shower heads, mini-bar, and complimentary WiFi. The extravagance continues with the hotel’s signature spa and Mediterranean essential oils, mineral-inspired treatments, and calming lounge with fireplace. Just outside the spa are the hotel’s freshwater pool and saltwater spa that look out onto the Pacific.
La Valencia hotel is conveniently located 20 minutes from San Diego International Airport and is a short drive away from Torrey Pines Golf Course, Del Mar Racetrack, and Fairgrounds and the heart of the city. Along with getting a taste of the high life, guests can enjoy a relaxing walk along the shore with nearby access to beaches.
La Valencia immerses its guests in an opulent lifestyle on the outskirts of San Diego along the sandy shores of Southern California.
