Beautiful location, very friendly staff, great food/drinks. The location can't be beat, you can hear the ocean from the pool. The pool was at the perfect temperature and the pool staff did not let us lift a finger. Excellent service

Hotel's Favourite
The La Valencia is a great Hotel,with the perfect location in La Jolla. It is super close to the beach, with many fine restaurants and shops minutes away. Our room overlooked the ocean and La Jolla cove. The weather on our anniversary was the best of the trip,sunny and warm. Kingsley the manager was gracious and friendly,as was the entire staff.

We celebrated our anniversary with a staycation at the La Valencia. Beautiful hotel and setting, great service. Our room was fantastic. The hotel is walking distance from great boutique shopping and dining in addition to La Jolla cove which is one of our most favorite spots in San Diego. We will be staying again when we need a getaway from everyday life.

This is the best hotel in San Diego! The service was great even during the pandemic. It is also more affordable than any Air BnB. Take advantage of the pool and excellent food. It’s similar to the Bacara Resort in Santa Barbara. Book early and often. The GM Kingsley is the best and deserves a raise!

Overall I was disappointed with my stay, The location of the hotel is fantastic and the building is beautiful. The staff overall was inexperienced, and the service overall was underwhelming for a luxury hotel.
