Just finished spending 2 nights at "The Pink Lady" in La Jolla. Charming older hotel, we had room 825, small which is not surprising in an older hotel converted from apartments sometime in the quite distant past. As advertised some view of the ocean, actually much more than I had expected. service is excellent, bed quite comfortable. There is a lovely lobby/lounge to sit in, not enough light to read however. Certainly not inexpensive digs and does not include the $30 a night parking surcharge so be aware.
My only warning is the restaurant is not up to the standards of the rest of the hotel as the menu is quite pedestrian. However it is only 1 1/2 blocks east of Nine Ten Restaurant which is one of San Diego's finest. Dinner there was outstanding and breakfast quite good. Stay here at La Valencia, eat elsewhere.
Its location in the heart of the La Jolla shopping district is quite convenient for strolling about and seeing how the "rich" blow their money.
