  • Great Team Members; Ideal Location

    by RH0s on 2018-09-24 03:47 pm

    We visited La Jolla for two days for a family wedding and the La Valencia made for a great venue to gather with friends and family. The hotel is in the heart of the city's shopping and entertainment district, with many restaurants, services, and the Pacific Ocean all a short walk away. The hotel offers very good dining choices and its pool deck accommodates large and small parties alike.

    The hotel team members that we encountered were all exceptional. John, who greeted and remembered us throughout our stay, served as an outstanding porter, concierge, and local guide with inside information. The valet team was easy-going and very helpful with our parking needs. Parking can be tricky at the La V because the valet stand comprises angled spaces along the city centre's most busy vehicle and pedestrian street. Shoutout to all the guys who handled our many ins-and-outs for the entire weekend. The front desk accommodated our request for an early check-in and the housekeeping crew was always polite, kind, and ready to offer assistance when needed.

    The La Valencia falls just short of being a true luxury boutique hotel. Its rooms are comfortable but not well appointed and oddly laid out (our closet was in the bathroom). The public spaces and architecture offer great character but need a little tender loving care. All of the windows throughout the hotel's main two buildings look like they could use a makeover. Overall, we had a very good time and would return largely because of the quality of the people who operate the property.

  • Best wedding anniversary ever!

    What a fantastic Hotel! Perfect for couples who are looking to have a romantic stay. My husband and I stayed at La Valencia to celebrate our wedding anniversary and I have to say it is by far the best service I have ever experienced. Special thanks to Seif and Lyle Tanaka, for making every moment memorable. Can't wait to come back.

  • Can't beat this amazing location!

    We recently stayed at La Valencia for 4 days, and it was overall a superb experience, primarily because of the incredible location of the hotel. You are literally steps away from the beach, shopping, restaurants, and all the great things La Jolla has to offer. Example: in the morning, we would have breakfast at La Med and then stroll by the beach; then eat lunch at one of the MANY ocean view restaurants; then spend the afternoon lounging by the pool; and finally ending the night with a gorgeous sunset dinner. Everything was walkable and convenient!

    That said, you are paying for the location, not the amenities. As the other reviews mention, this is a historic hotel so expect the rooms to be older. The only reason why this was not a 5 star experience was because our room was more outdated than I had anticipated, and I thought it could use a bit more upkeep. Our TV didn't work half the time because the remote was broken, and our toilet kept making strange noises in the night. My husband is very sensitive to dust, and his allergies were going crazy the entire time.

    Despite the small room issues, we still had a splendid time. There were so many breathtaking moments from the stunning scenery nearby that made staying at La Valencia worth it for the location alone. It was a perfect beach weekend getaway, and we will definitely return!

    I have been for brunch to La Valencia Sunday's brunch for several years. After not visiting for one year the quality of food and service for all in the party was surprisingly bellow standard. I think they need to focus on these aspects important aspects having such a good reputation earned by years. View is not everything.

  • Spanish Style Dream

    by WanderlusttoTravel on 2018-09-21 06:50 pm

    We have stayed here many times over the last 10 years We have stayed in rooms with balconies and the private villas. The Private Villas are our favorite with large balconies and large soaking tubs there is nothing better for some much needed R&R. The Breakfast room service is fantastic and the small private pool is beautiful . All Staff is very kind and courteous and management is very accommodating. We have spent many anniversaries and special trips here at this hotel. Always good memories. Great walking distance to everything in La Jolla
