My husband and I stayed here for a weekend anniversary trip. The hotel was clean, staff was VERY nice, and the beds were very comfortable. the walls were a little thin, but other than every now and then hearing a door slam, it wasn't that big of a deal. We were able to walk the block down to Prospect to be a part of the night life, but being a block away was nice because you felt a little removed from the crowds.

I stay this hotel on 10th April, 2012.

Very clean and comfortable room and bath. I had a room with view of sea at 4th floor.

The reception is warm and friend. And the reception guy, Ben, took Tripadvisor comments highly. He want us to say something good here. I think it's good if every hotel do their work better to encourage customers to give them good comments in Tripadvisor.

The breakfast room is small and the food is OK.

But the valet parking charged us 18 $. And I found there's self parking at 5 $ nearby, just 100 meter along the street. Anyway, parking is a problem is La Jolla area.

Room Tip: Room on 4th floor can have a sea view.

I recently spent a few relaxing days at the Empress while on vacation. The staff at the front desk could not have been nicer. They were friendly, courteous and had excellent suggestions on places to eat and to visit.The room was clean, quiet and had a bit of an ocean view. The hotel itself was conveniently located to both the beach and the village.

The Empress is right in the center of La Jolla, walking distance to all the attractions, beach, shopping and wonderful restaurants. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The public spaces of the hotel are beautifully maintained and I always appreciate a complimentary continental breakfast. Staff was invariably courteous and helpful.

Loved our room - very comfortable furnishings. Booked on the top floor, we could even see the ocean from our window. The staff was friendly and helpful - Jason and Nick were funny and considerate - I felt very welcome there. We ended up extending our stay by a day and they were extremely accommodating. Location-wise, this hotel was just a couple of blocks from the ocean, shopping, and night life. We had a fantastic stay and I would definitely stay here again.
