The Lodge at Torrey Pines is an award-winning luxury resort set atop the cliffs of Torrey Pines State Beach in La Jolla, California. Awarded the AAA Five Diamond rating for 15 consecutive years, the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, and Travel + Leisure’s Top 50 Hotels in the United States and Canada, The Lodge provides stunning views of the world-renowned Torrey Pines Golf Course and Pacific Ocean and endless opportunities for guests to enjoy San Diego’s warm climate – from outdoor dining and relaxing at the spa to hiking, golfing and more. The Lodge is modeled after the famed Gamble and Blacker houses in Pasadena – two of the finest examples of early 1900s Craftsman-style architecture. Its post-and-beam construction features a natural color palette, graceful wing-like rooflines, shingle and sandstone-bluff exteriors, clinker-brick masonry, rich woodwork and natural stone surfaces. Arrivals are greeted by doormen attired in kilted Scottish dress, while inside are 170 spacious guest rooms and suites designed for supreme comfort. The Lodge’s signature restaurant A.R. Valentien – rated Best Hotel Restaurant in the West by Sunset Magazinein 2015 – is a destination for fresh regional cuisine served in an elegant setting overlooking the Torrey Pines Golf Course. Artisan Table Dinners highlighting farm-to-table fare in a communal setting are offered weekly, while Executive Chef Jackson headlines The Lodge’s annual Celebrate the Craft event, one of Southern California’s premier showcases for regionally grown ingredients and innovative cooking and winemaking. For a more casual vibe, The Grill at The Lodge offers a full menu of favorites whether dining indoors or on the patio, while its bar is an ideal gathering place after a day on the golf course. The Spa at Torrey Pines features signature treatments themed around the beauty and purity of the Pacific coastline. This 9,500 square foot space uses botanical and marine-based extracts from European product lines Phytomer, SkinCeuticals, Farmhouse Fresh and NV Organics to replenish and restore the body and mind. Additional features of The Lodge include a croquet lawn, heated outdoor pool and cabanas, whirlpool, outdoor terrace with chaise lounges, hiking at the adjacent Torrey Pines State Reserve, a fitness center and the Scripps Library, a public space featuring a pool table, board games and more. Adjacent to The Lodge, the Torrey Pines Golf Course is an iconic 36-hole course that hosts the PGA Tour’s annual Farmers Insurance Open. Whether on the North Course or South Course, our guests have the opportunity to play where the pros play with the stunning La Jolla coastline as a backdrop. Nearby attractions include downtown La Jolla and Del Mar, Birch Aquarium at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, the La Jolla Playhouse performing arts center and the Museum of Contemporary Art. During spring and summer, the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club entices visitors with the thrill of live racing, while a popular year-round choice is the Torrey Pines State Reserve, a magnificent 2,000 acres of protected rare Torrey Pine trees featuring pristine beaches and eight miles of trails; The Lodge offers complimentary guided hikes throughout the preserve daily. The Lodge is located just 15 miles north of the San Diego International Airport and downtown San Diego.

We were here for a four day, three night board retreat. Disclaimer: I don't golf, so maybe the course offsets the hotel. The first evening reception had a veggie platter where the red and yellow peppers were slimy. I didn't notice (beneath the hummus) until I'd eaten three. I

There is nothing to say here but perfection. The beds, the bathrooms, the lobby, the service, the food. Everything has been my kind of perfection. I used the drivers to go back and forth to La Jolla and they were delightful. I also appreciated real half and half in the

I was in town in December for the Holiday Bowl. Not only is the stay and service sublime at Torrey Pines, but working with them for events was seamless. We love the team at Torrey Pines (almost as much as we love the evening bed turn down service!).

I have been coming to the Torrey Pines Lodge for years. I’ve traveled all across the US and internationally and this is by far my favorite hotel. I only stay here when I am in San Diego. I don’t care how far I have to travel to get where I need to go. The hotel is definitely

This is quite possibly the nicest hotel I’ve ever stayed in. Beautiful craftsman architecture and handcrafted details in every nook and cranny. Every detail is a treat. 5 star service and food to die for. Luxurious sheets, towels, and robes; and slippers set out by the bed

The view from my patio overlooking the 18th green.
I like to walk and walked around the property however there wasn't anything near by however the lodge has complimentary coffee in the morning in the room behind front desk. There also are free goodies as you exit the main building by valet pick up, mostly for those who need to leave and don't have time for breakfast

sorry, but I'm not sure. We parked in short term/30 minute parking for the pro shop and then decided to stay for apps and drinks. The golf shop personnel told us we were fine to stay in that spot...….and we were only there for about 1 1/2 hours not a full day. The pro shop had a list of the rental fees. Very cheap if you have someone in your party who is a resident of San Diego! Hope this helps.

You will have an amazing stay.... it’s a beautiful property and our area is filled with such natural beauty!! Depending how much you like to walk, you have some nice options: -take a walk into the Torrey Pines State Preserve and follow one of the marked trails down to the beach (you can check out the trail maps online) -walk over to the Torrey Pines Glider Park, right next to The Salk Institute. As well as watching the amazing hang gliders and paragliders launch themselves off the cliffs, there are trails down to the beach. -call an Uber and go to La Jolla Shores Beach, just about 10 minutes from the Lodge. It’s a wonderful mile-long beach, very wide with a big grassy park next to it. The Scripps Institute of Oceanography Pier is at one end and the La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club is at the other end... with the lovely little village of La Jolla Shores at the south end (this is different than the main village of La Jolla). There are lots of great cafes and restaurants as well as surf, snorkel and kayak shops in LJ Shores. Enjoy!!!
