Great hotel in a great location. Lounging in the lobby bar with the live music is so relaxing. The rooms are comfortable and the Hotel staff are friendly and accommodating. We would highly recommend this hotel!

Michelle De Esprilla, one of the hotel managers, made our stay at La Valencia Hotel an unforgettable experience! We are from Dallas, Texas and I took my three children there for Spring Break 2017.

First of all, we stay only at 4 and 5 star hotels. We're really picky. This is a really lovely hotel in an excellent location. And the service really stole the show.

We booked a Vintage Ocean King after seeing how pretty the ocean views seemed to be from looking at photos on the La Valencia website and hotels.com. When we got there, they put us in a room on the 4th floor where the "ocean view" was through a door that actually led to the walkway to the pool. The only...

Dear Traveler, I am so sorry for the mistake that happpened with your room assignment, and I am sharing this review with our Front Office.

This hotel has kept the old world charm of a grand ocean-front hotel experience. This is not a cookie cutter hotel. Each room is different. Some of the new rooms are less charming, but the atmosphere of the common areas and poolside is luxurious feeling. It was wonderful and quiet by the pool and the eating options were great. Outdoors...

The location of the hotel is excellent. You can walk to restaurants, the beach, and more. We were disappointed in our room's decor. It was drab, lifeless, and dark. The carpeting was in dire need of replacement and the he furniture was very dated.

Fantastic hotel in the center of a great town. Location is perfect, bar is nice, pool and hot tub on site, and the service is great! Has an "old hotel" feel, but is completely updated. Spent 3 nights, but could have stayed all week!
