We stayed in an ocean view suite in the Cabrillo building. We had booked a king suite but for some reason ended up one with two queens, no big deal, maybe it had a better view? The room was fine but was a little musty and the furniture/decorations just looked old (though everything was in good shape) - you know,...

Dear La V Guest, Thank you so much for joining us and taking the time to share your review. Your suite description is of our Cabrillo wing, circa 1908 and hence the vintage but required fire stairwells. Decor refreshes are planned in 2017, but those stunning ocean views are always guaranteed! Ciao, Mark Dibella, Managing Director

We throughly enjoyed our stay at La Valencia. The hotel felt like a resort in the middle of the town. LaValencia has so much character and history but it didn't feel like we were staying in an old dated hotel. The room was clean, well appointed and provided wonderful views. The staff was friendly from the moment the valet took...

After reading all the reviews, we decided to stay at the La Valencia for our Anniversary, and we where glade we did. The La V was everything we hoped it would be, the Room, the View, the Staff, the Restaurants, and most of all the Ambience of this Classic 90 year old Hotel. We will definitely be back!

While visiting La Jolla as tourists, my wife and I stopped here for a light brunch. We did not stay overnight, unfortunately. A friend recommended that we visit this hotel. It is gorgeous!

We stayed 3 nights over the Christmas Holiday with our adult children. My wife always asks for the second room--it is rare that we don't change rooms. Our room was a suite in the older wing and the first room they gave us on the first floor had a view of a brick wall from our bedroom. But they moved...
