    We stayed in a Villa with an ocean view. It was amazing. Hotel employees went out of their way to accommodate us from the moment we arrived, from the Valet, Front Desk and the bellman that brought our bags to our room. We enjoyed breakfast at the hotel restaurant and room service for a late night snack. Everyone was so nice.

    The pool was lovely, along with the service.

    The room was terrible. Slightly better than a very dated closet. Bathroom needs upgrades.

    I loved the fresh flowers in the lobby.

    If the pool were few degrees warmer I would have used it.

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.
