I am a SoCal resident many spent summers vacationing in La Jolla growing up but aside from having brunch there, never stayed at La Valencia. So when I had a business trip there recently, I wanted to check it out. I stayed in a suite. The room was of very generous size and overlooked the pool. It had a nice living area, suitable for in room dining with a very nice bedroom and bathroom. I had alway thought of the pink hotel as an old and outdated hotel. I cannot vouch for the standard room and I am leery of staying in old hotels due to the small rooms and outdated bath rooms. I can happily say that La Valencia exceeded expectations. The service was amazing. My stay included several business breakfast meetings which they accommodated in great style. I also had a small get together en suite during which the service from the kitchen and bar were prompt. My only complaint is that there was only a small wisp of blue visible from the room booked as ocean view. Otherwise, convenient to Scripps Park, jogging along the beautiful coast, great restaurants in then village and one of the world's best 'body surfing only' beaches is across the street (Boomers). Uber to the Gaslight if you must, it is 10-15 minutes away. A great choice if you are not cost conscious. If you are watching the budget, stay were I stayed growing up, La Jolla Cave Suites, actually better located but lacking all but the basics. See my review there for details.
