“Great getaway to La Jolla”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

My wife and I enjoyed a quick 1 might stay over Memorial Day weekend. Our entire experience was great from the beginning. Check-in was quick, and Charrah was very friendly and helpful. Every staff member we interacted with was courteous, fun, and provided wonderful service.
The Hiatus bar has a great patio, and the bartender was friendly and offered to customize cocktails based on our preferences, and the Coastal Hour in the lobby was great. How do you say no to free wine!?!?

The room was very clean and updated. Not gigantic by any means but plenty of space. The bed was comfortable with quality linens and we loved having the terrace to sit outside and take in the view.

Charrah gave us a great dinner recommendation for Herringbone, and offered to call and make a reservation for us. The free shuttle service was great and saved us a cab or Uber ride to/from dinner. The hotel may not be right in the middle of La Jolla village, but it is only a few minutes away...we did not feel that the location was lacking at all.

Thanks Hotel La Jolla for a great experience, we will be back!

Room Tip: It was worth the extra money to have an ocean view room (floors 6+).

A letter to management...

We recently returned from a brief weekend stay at your property where we were celebrating our 28th wedding anniversary, a short but special visit. From the valet and reception staff, to the bar tender and the maintenance guy, all of your staff was extraordinary; friendly, fun and polite.

Special "kudo's" to the CUSP crew. The food quality and presentation was superior. I was reluctant to have our special meal in a "hotel restaurant", with La Jolla but a 5 minute drive away. But, we could not have made a better choice.

The accommodation were excellent. The room was nice and clean, the view was tremendous and the other areas; pool, bar and lobby... all were very nice and comfortable. I just wish we would have had more time to stay and enjoy it.

Bottom line... be proud of your property, but be extremely proud of your extraordinary staff!

Please extend our sincere thanks on to your team and feel free to pass my comments on to your executive management. You and your team deserve the recognition.

Room Tip: Get a room at least on the 4th floor or higher/

Green Features: The staff took the time to go above and beyond for our anniversary, hand colored greeting cards and dinner table cards... Champagne and hand-made truffles delivered to the room.. very nice touch!

This hotel has been recently remodeled and purchased by the Kimpton Hotel Group. From the moment we drove up we were treated like royalty. From the parking attendants, the check-in desk, the room, the restaurant, the bar, we cannot explain the extraordinary service we received. The hotel is beautiful - the views from each of the rooms are spectacular. The restaurant food was delicious and the bar had the best drinks overlooking the beautiful Pacific Ocean. The location was awesome. There was a shuttle that took us into the Village and picked us up -- never had to take our car out. I would highly recommend this dog friendly, kid friendly and overall wonderful hotel to anyone.

Hotel has ocean view and only a few minutes walk to beach. Rooms are adequately furnished and are newly renovated. I requested room on a high floor initially- the view was amazing but the noise from the main road and garage was extremely loud . I was relocated to the 6th floor and slightly further away from the road which was slightly better. Staff are exceptionally friendly always willing to please.
The bathroom is small and has shower and a single basin- basic and spotlessly clean- always plenty of towels.
We had a late snack dinner and drinks at the Cusp restaurant- excellent presentation and food with truly spectacular views of La Jolla.
This is a good value, well positioned hotel - parking cost $28-00 a day, which we felt was a high price to pay. This hotel does however offer free morning tea and coffee as well as happy hour free wine.

Room Tip: Try get room as far wast from main road as possible

I found this trip through Expedia. I didn't know the La Jolla area at all and gambled on the location. My daughter stayed at a Kimpton in Washington and loved it. We stayed 3 nights and had a wonderful time! La Jolla is such a beautiful location. The hotel service was outstanding. We walked to the ocean 5 minutes and jumped in the waves. We loved the area and hotel and will go again! Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Room in front of the elevator was noisy with the wind howling one night. Put a towel by the door to...

I was there for business and stayed 5 nights and I really didn't want to leave at the end of my stay there. Great location for easy access to the surrounding area and a short walk or bike ride (using the complimentary bikes) to the beach and local restaurants. Rooms were spacious and modern. I found all of the staff to be genuinely friendly and helpful. Happy hour at the pool bar or at the Cusp bar was good value and the evening wine/beer reception was an added bonus. The pool was small but it wasn't crowded. Although located on a busy road I can't say I really noticed the traffic sounds. The hotel offers a complimentary shuttle into La Jolla which was really handy. In all a wonderful stay and I would definitely choose this hotel on my next trip to the area.

My husband and I were married in La Jolla five years ago and visited the Hotel La Jolla this past weekend to celebrate our anniversary. I am a huge Kimpton fan and a member of the InTouch loyalty program. I booked a room at the hotel using one of the May InTouch special offers, which was to include two local beers upon check in. When we arrived, we did not receive the beers (nor was any mention made of them), but we were offered a complimentary bottle of champagne in honor of our anniversary and were told it would be sent right up to the room. An hour later, it still had not been delivered, so we headed down to the pool area for the hosted evening wine reception, which was lovely. When we returned to the room an hour later, the champagne still had not been delivered, so we inquired about the beers and champagne and were once again told that they would be sent right up. An hour and a half later, they still had not arrived, so we headed out to dinner and assumed that they would be delivered while we were out. However, when we returned two and a half hours later, they still were nowhere to be found and we decided to give up on ever receiving them.

Overall, the hotel is nicely decorated, the staff seemed friendly, and the room was comfortable, but I can't help but feel a bit disappointed about the experience since they did not deliver on the promise made.
