If I ever have an opportunity to visit La Jolla CA again I will definitely stay at the Empress Hotel. The staff is so friendly and accommodating.....they couldn't be nicer. The room was great.....expecially the large walk-in tiled shower. I happily recommend this hotel to anyone......given the location, the rates are good. It is located in the heart of the Village of La Jolla -- walking distance from everything, including the beach!

I was in La Jolla for a wedding and, having never been there before, relied on a recommendation for a hotel. Well, I hit the jackpot! The Empress was perfect for my needs. My room was spacious and comfortable (LOVE the shower). The hotel staff, from the front desk to housekeeping, was attentive, friendly, and attentive without being overbearing. Although it's not on the beach, the Empress is perfectly situated in the Village of La Jolla and easy walking to a wealth of shops, galleries, and restaurants. Getting down to the beautiful cove is also easy, only a few blocks away. Take my recommendation . . . you will not regret staying here.

A really cute hotel near La Jolla cove. The location is great - walking distance to restaurants, shopping and the beach. The service and staff were all very helpful and friendly.

I stayed in one of the hotel suites - which even has a piano in it!!

I would definitely recommend this hotel to other friends!!

Great hotel in the heart of La Jolla. Great location to shops and restaurants. Free internet and breakfast. Hotel clean, well maintained with large rooms. I plan to stay at this hotel again next time we travel to La Jolla, CA.

This hotel is centrally located to nice restraunts, shops and within walking distance of the ocean. The hotel room itself is quite confortable and the perfect size for 2. The newly renovated walk-in shower is a wonderful upgrade! The hotel room we were originally brought to had a terrible view of the garbage cans and smelt horrible. We polietly requested to be moved... which was done without hesitation. Needless to say, that was the only hiccup during our 4 night stay.

If we ever return to La Jolla, we would stay at the Empress again.
