Positive Reviews

Where history meets modern luxury

Guests love the historic feel to this hotel, in addition to all of its modern amenities. The atmosphere is elegant and upscale, yet comfortable. Whether your stay is for business or leisure, the added perk of free Wi-Fi will keep you connected.

Great location

Close to the beach as well as shops and restaurants, this hotel has a prime location close to La Jolla Village. Beachgoers, shoppers, and families alike will be able to find something of interest nearby.

Room with a view

Rooms with ocean views are stunning. They may be more expensive, but guests say the views are worth it in the end. If you're considering a room at this hotel, consider a room with a full ocean view.

Negative Reviews

No self-parking available

If you bring a car, be prepared to rely on valet parking. Daily rates apply, and you'll find that they are quite expensive. You may find that you don't need a car, though, since there are plenty of activities within walking distance.

A few updates are needed

Overall, the hotel is in mint condition. However, guests have noted that few items, such as carpeting in certain areas, require replacement. Other minor issues, such as furnishings at the pool, have also been noted.

Noise can disrupt your stay

Noise from the street is a common complaint from past guests who stayed at this hotel. It has an excellent location, but is susceptible to some noise. As an older building, the walls are not totally soundproofed.
