We recently held our mid-year Board Meeting at the La Valencia hotel, and the exceptional staff made sure that our meeting and its related networking functions went flawlessly. With plenty of nicely appointed hotel rooms for our guests, the location and venue couldn't have been any better.

We had a wonderful stay at La Valencia last September. The hotel is beautiful and the staff is very friendly and helpful. It's in a great location and as a bonus they have very delicious cocktails for sipping poolside 😎. I was reminded to write a review as we are planning to return soon!
