Location is ok, views are nice, rooms are small and ordinary. However, the front desk staff do not understand what hospitality means here. They locked me and my family out of our prepaid room on our 4th night of stay at 11pm. Yes, both of our keys were not working, our 4 year old was asleep in mom's arms, and...

Greetings Semih, I am so sorry to hear that our team did not properly explain the reasons behind your experience. Unfortunately even as we tend to focus on the human side of hospitality more than anything els,e our needs as a business do come into play from time to time. Again my apologies that this was not explained properly. In...

I have waited a while to write this review because I wanted to be sure I was really disappointed or just in shock at the rudeness of some employees. I have been a Kimpton fan for years and have never been so let down by one of their properties as this one. To begin with the valets were beyond snarky....

Thank Sanchacita
Jeremy W, General Manager at Hotel La Jolla, Curio Collection by Hilton, responded to this review

Hi Sanchacita, I am so sorry you felt the suite here at Hotel La Jolla was not up to your standards. I can see how not having a tub would affect your outlook but with most suites design will remain the same unless it is a specialty suite which we unfortunately do not have. The great thing about our suites...

We checked in the day ahead of my husbands three day business meeting and were told on the phone two hrs. before arrival that our room had already been determined and we had no view! We were assured we had been given a quiet location (Although never having asked for that) We were in 310 but you can only see...

I stay at Kimptons regularly and have had some spectacular stays. This was the first time I have ever been disappointed in a Kimpton stay. That said, the "poor" rating is not factoring in the brand, i.e., I'm not saying this was a poor Kimpton stay; this was a a poor hotel stay. The hotel has an overall vibe of...

Jeremy W, General Manager at Hotel La Jolla, Curio Collection by Hilton, responded to this review

I am sorry to hear of your disappointing experience Steven T. What's worse is that it seemed like we could have made a difference but just didn't. That is not what we represent and certainly not within the culture of Kimpton. Our goal is to genuinely care about each and every guest of ours and we clearly missed out on...

I was SO SO pleasantly surprised by this hotel! Im shocked its not a 4 or 5 star! everyone who worked there was fabulous, friendly & helpful. People complained here about $30 parking a nite, so Im glad i knew to do on street parking, in the neighborhood right there. NO issues AT ALL. Room was gorgeous, clean, modern. They...

Thanks for the glowing review NwptRN! Since you managed to travel all the way from Rhode Island and had such a great stay I think you win for review of the day. Thanks again for the kudos and come back to see us soon.

As a loyal Kimpton customer, I feel especially compelled to write this review. I wanted terribly to disagree with the reviewers who said that this property is not exactly up to the normal Kimpton standard. However, mostly everything I had read in the reviews was correct.That said, the lobby is gorgeous, the rooms are modern and nice and the staff...

Hi NJBrooklynborn, Perception is reality and obviously we have some areas to pick up our game in so thank you for the constructive feedback. I am very happy though to hear that our guest service particularly in our Valet/Guest Services department was stellar. Thanks for sharing and please know we will work towards getting all areas that we can create...

The travel to San Diego by plane was an absolute nightmare! Canceled flights and lost luggage is never a way to start a much needed vacation. To say the very least, I was not in the best of moods upon arrival. Your friendly valets first greeted me; but it was not until check- in when my mood subsided. Front desk...

Thanks Hamilton S! While holidays like the 4th of July are meant to be uber fantastic and relaxing, the travel part can be so frustrating right?!?! I am so happy Diana and the rest of the team didn't disappoint once you finally made it here. Thanks for staying with us and we'll hopefully see you again in the future.

Hotel staff is very nice and friendly. Rooms with balcony and view of the ocean are my favorite. I HATE that there is no coffee maker in the room. I like to wake up and have coffee without getting dressed and going to the lobby. Makes me very cranky especially when I'm stressed about getting to work meetings. I didn't...

Hi Cathy N, Yikes, three stars for no coffee makes us sad. Even more so that if you just ask us for coffee in your room we can make that happen. But we are happy to now know because we understand there are guests who simply just want coffee before they see anyone or anything in the morning. So we...

I stayed here with my wife for a couple of days. We had a great time. Its a modern hotel with a very nice view. The location in La Jolla is, good. They also have a free shuttle to nearby areas as well as complimentary bikes. The pool is nothing to brag about, however, it makes more sense to go...

A beautiful modern hotel with super friendly staff. Within walking distance of the beach and the town - or you can take the shuttle service offered by the hotel. A pretty but small pool, clean rooms, happy hour and lovely property make this a great option. If you haven't been to La Jolla, you need to visit. One of the...
