Beautiful older building with charm and intimacy. Staff is wonderfully warm and happy to help. You can get a full ocean view room on the higher floors (keep in mind the lobby is on the 7th floor because the hotel is located on a terrace). We happen to stay there during the Concourse D'Elegance so there was a lot of activity in and around the hotel. Great location to enjoy village shops and coastline walks. Can be noisy depending on what events are scheduled during your stay. (Weddings, parties etc). Everything quiets down by 10pm though. Food was great at La Rue (not too bad cost-wise considering typical La Jolla prices) and love Daniel and Jason. Nancy, the wonderful concierge, is a wealth of information and can help guide your stay.
Spanish for “The Jewel,” La Jolla is 13 miles north of downtown San Diego. One of the country’s most affluent communities, La Jolla is known for its fine homes, wonderful beaches, wonderful restaurants, and stunning natural scenery. It is home to the Scripps Institution of Oceanography and the Stephen Birch Aquarium and Museum.
