How can a venerable and famous pink hotel also be a subtle, welcoming, and homey retreat? This is the charm of La Valencia where every single employee is efficient, kind, and engaging. On the lobby floor, the old Spanish decor with magnificent tile work and painting ceilings is lovely and the perfect decor next to the sea. We enjoyed the...

This hotel is located in a beautiful hill at La Jolla. From our room we had the most beautiful view of the beach and the pool. The food and the service were great. The hotel is good dog friendly (always treats on the concierge area).

Loved the location of the hotel as it was close to stores and restaurants. We could walk to the oceanside easily. Paths and sidewalks along the ocean front went for miles.The views from the terrace and pool were wonderful. Comfortable lounge chairs and nice bar at the pool area. Beautiful gardens and Palms surround the pool. We had very good...

My husband and I stayed here for two nights early May, 2017. It was peaceful, elegant, and just delightful. Flowers blooming everywhere. Beautiful pool. Close to the water. The staff was amazing! Wendy and Bob at the front desk took good care of us, as did numerous wait staff in their resturants, the bell men and the valet. We travel...

My wife and I stay at La Valencia whenever we visit family in San Diego. It is one of our favorite hotels in the world, a classic that stays up to date, with a fabulous location on the ocean, inviting spaces, comfortable rooms, and the friendliest staff imaginable.

When we were shown our room, it was in an "annex" to the hotel. We booked in June and arrived in August, plenty of time for them to give us a room in a decent location, and we had not booked a cheapest room. Our window was right next to the sidewalk, which came right up to the building which...
