Hi Sophias !

What is your budget per night?

Hi Sophias,

I live in La Jolla and I think the La Valencia is really special. It has old world Spanish Colonial charm with all the modern conveniences of a newer hotel. The "La V" is on Prospect Street surrounded by good restaurants and interesting shops.

If you want to be right on the beach, you could stay at the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club or the La Jolla Shores Hotel on La Jolla Shores Beach, but neither of those are as luxurious as La Valencia.

Let me know if you'd like other suggestions.

Cheers,

Elizabeth Hansen

If I was coming to La Jolla, I'd want to be in the Village so that means the La Valencia, Grande Colonial and Hotel Parisi.

But if you want romantic, you might also look at the Estancia La Jolla Hotel and Spa and Lodge at Torry Pines.

My two cents:

Rooms at Hotel Parisi overlook Prospect Street vs. some rooms at La Valencia with ocean views, and Estancia is too isolated and not cozy.

I agree that Grande Colonial is nice.

About the Lodge at Torrey Pines: I'm not a big fan of Craftsman architecture and I find it rather dark - but maybe that's just me.

Cheers,

The Grand Del Mar is one of if not the nicest hotel in the area. Id also look at the Beach Village at the Hotel Del Coronado.

I also don't like Estancia but I like the feel of the Lodge at Torrey Pines or even the Hilton Torrey PInes since they have just remodeled and are right next door to the Lodge.

I guess it is just up to personal taste.

I also like the Grand Colonial.

IF you have a really HIGH budget take a look at the Grande Del Mar.

I am not a fan of the craftsman style of the Lodge at Torrey Pines but the service and views cannot be beat!

The ultimate resort experience would be at The Grand Del Mar....the key word there is "resort".

We love the Lodge at Torrey Pines, very romantic. Our first night dinner at AR Valentien in the hotel was fabulous. We sat in a plush private booth in the restaurant.

The grounds and spa are wonderful.
