 in La Jolla/San Diego


Commanding the coastline for nine decades is the iconic La Valencia Hotel, The Pink Lady of La Jolla, San Diego's jewel community. Known for decades as The Pink Lady, guests assume it is due to the hotel’s pale pink exterior. But La Valencia spent her first decades as a classic white Mediterranean, red tile roofed icon until the late 1950s, when the owners returned from a vacation on Waikiki beach and were inspired to paint the hotel pink! The original Pink Lady of La Valencia is gracefully displayed in an original tile medallion installed in the ocean-facing Garden in 1928, depicting a Spanish lady dressed in pink.

From the indulgent Villas surrounding the ocean-view pool, to the intimate Vintage rooms in the soaring 1928 Tower wing, to the more residential Classic rooms and suites in the original 1926 Sevilla and 1908 Cabrillo wings, La Valencia offers a diverse and engaging choice of accommodations for every taste. The resort evokes a decidedly Mediterranean flair with Spanish architecture, a myriad of colorful tiles and tile work, and extensive mature grounds which cascade down the bluff to Scripps Park and the Pacific Ocean. The flavors of the ocean abound in the hotel’s signature MED Ocean View Restaurant. It is complimented by La Sala Lounge, offering live entertainment, and surrounded by captivating views of the Pacific, under hand-painted ceilings. Casual European-inspired fare is served from Café la Rue, the hotel’s village-facing bistro and bar, and home to the property’s nostalgic collection of photography and famous murals.

With boundless leisure opportunities, including 65 local golf courses, local scuba, and kayaking to destinations like the San Diego Zoo and Sea World, the activities in La Jolla are endless. Steeped in celebrity history, La Valencia continues to welcome luminaries and inspired travelers from across the globe to an authentic experience of personable and approachable Southern California hospitality.

La Valencia Hotel, a charter member of Historic Hotels of America since 1989, dates back to 1926.
