Old heritage building, comfortable rooms, great views over the ocean, relaxed pool area, direct access to the ocean park and promenade, fine restaurants, close to shopping and art galleries. Why stay at the "Factory Hotels" in the San Diego Financial District when 10 minutes away you are by the ocean in a place with great heritage and atmosphere?

This is simply the best place to stay in La Jolla!!! The staff is supremely accommodating and they make you feel special. The rooms are wonderful!! Room 422 is our favorite. We had lunch there one day and breakfast the day we left. Delicious!!! And the location is awesome!! We love to walk and La Jolla is the perfect place to do that and La Valencia is right in the middle of it all! We love this place and will definitely return!!

Our goal was for a quick and relaxing overnight get-away at a hotel we enjoyably frequented years ago. When we learned we could also include our two little well-behaved dogs, reservations were enthusiastically set. Upon arrival, we were greeted warmly & informed that "Yappy Hour" was about to begin on the patio - a once a month event for locals & guests with dogs. What fun! Delicious appetizers and drinks at a reduced price are enjoyed by all, along with treats for pups sitting nicely alongside... Read more

Really nice hotel with lots of character and definitely not a chain type. The building could be in the South of France. All the staff genuine and helpful but not over the top. Recommend staying in a room overlooking the Pacific and using the restaurant which is excellent. Only issue is the time taken to clean the room which was later than one would like.

Have never posted a second review for a property but thought the Pink Palace, which was my name as a kid, (officially the Pink Lady) deserved it. Was in town for a quick LA business trip and opted to suck up the drive each day to stay in La Jolla at the LaV. Iwas a business only stop and my time on property was limited, so reservations helped me with the Petite Chambre, a smaller room to keep my company's travel budget in check. I'm very partial to this property due to many stays over the yea... Read more

I must make travelers aware of this outstanding hotel, La Valencia, and this wonderful hotel manager, Michelle De la Espriella. It is so rare to find such individualized care and personalized touch as this young lady offers. She and her staff took care of any need within minutes of asking and then gave a follow-up call to make sure you were taken care of. Michelle also made us aware of any special events going on in the area. You always felt like you were the most important person in the hotel.... Read more

Visiting here from the UK. Ideal location for sooo many things. Visiting sites in San Diego, only 13 miles away. Beach, on your doorstep, as is a plethora of wildlife. Seals, sea lions, pelicans, and pods of dolphins. The absolute best of both worlds. City and all its sights. Beach and all its wonders with fresh sea air and great walks. Fabulous place to chill out.

I have to sound a nerd here but working in Construction and Engineering, this property is beautiful and so well thought-out. Location is perfect with shops, bars and restaurants nearby. As this was the end of our holiday, we didn't explore San Diego to much and the hotel stopped us doing that. Instead we sat around the pool and enjoyed the June gloom with a few beverages, even it was midday! Top service, top location and just a great resort hotel.

Loved this hotel. It was very clean, very friendly staff, and had a lot of character. We had a partial ocean view that was so pretty.

We replied yes, as we were taken to the table, didn't seat ourselves. He then stated that the manager wanted our names to verify.

If you want a hotel with history, views, character, central location, great staff and lovely pool area then this is it. Colonial feeling as you walk through the lobby and you can imagine what this place would have been like in the 1950s or 1960s. It's 2 minutes walk to the coves and same to the local restaurants. Yes ok the rooms are not super luxury but who cares when you have so many other amazing features ! I cannot wait to return to this gem of a hotel.

This is one of the best hotels in San Diego, and it is in a perfect location. It is right across the street from La Jolla Cove where you can snorkel, explore the tide pools, and see lots of seals. Of course, nothing is inexpensive here and there is no parking so you must use their valet. There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance so you don't really need a car, unless you want to see other sites in San Diego.

I stayed here many years ago and found the property long on history and short on upkeep, but it had been so long that I felt sure that the rooms must have been updated. I needed to be in downtown La Jolla and the location certainly is excellent. However that is where the excellence stops. To be fair, the front desk staff was cheerful and helpful - even when I quickly returned to them after a few minutes in my first room (624?). It smelled so badly of mold/mildew that I thought it might actually ... Read more

What a wonderful spot - great food - great rooms - great view - great service. looking forward to the next visit. Such a fun area and the hotel is in the perfect location. The restaurant was excellent - we had a wonderful dinner and enjoyed our table on the veranda overlooking the water.

Stayed for 5 nights with our two kids. Beautiful Hotel, unique look, best location in La Jolla, good food and overall friendly, attentive and professional service. Good vibe. Happy place. If I have to say something on the negative side, sometimes it can be challenging to find a quiet spot to relax. During our stay there were 3 or 4 weddings, and two other private parties. The hotel is not huge and that was perhaps a bit too much. Also, chambermaid service on Sunday was late and lacking and the ... Read more

Highly recommend this hotel. Old world with every aminity. Located in the heart of LaJolla Ca; short walk to the coves where we swam with the sea lions! Excellent food, cocktails and comfy beds. Didn't give it 5 stars because while I expected smaller (but comfy) rooms the bathroom was too small.

It was a step back in time, but in a 4 star, classy way. The setting, attention to detail, cleanliness, and pampering made our anniversary just right. Location unbeatable, view, balcony dining, and complementary champagne put us over the top - great job, La Valencia!

We've made LaV our annual getaway, 24 hours of indulgence and relaxation in a truly beautiful site. Walking distance to shopping and top-notch cuisine, beach and water sports, and a pool that could be in the Riviera! The staff is uniformly gracious and helpful. We look forward to this treat every year!

Gorgeous views, wonderful beach weather & excellent service before, during & after the wedding! Their valet team did an awesome job. Food was excellent at the wedding dinner & cocktail appetizers were a hit too! That was expected. But the food was just as good pool side the day after with family & friends. Made the weekend very special! Thank you La V!

When I checked in I was told I had been "upgraded" to an ocean view in the tower. I wish now I had taken the original room I was assigned as I'm sure it had to be better than this. The tower rooms are extremely small. The shower head was caked with GUNK and so was the alternative shower head. It may just look like harmless mineral deposits but it's really BACTERIA. The windows in the tower cannot be opened from what I could tell and there are no screens. It's very claustrophobic. The room has c... Read more

This is very pretty hotel that is reminiscent of the 1920's. The rooms are on the small side, but the location is great. Walking distance to the beach, shopping and restaurants. The restaurants in the hotel are poor, so I'd go elsewhere for meals.

So this is my second attempt to shed light on what a truly unique property and staff work here. long story short, my stay was horrible. I even tried to change hotels due to the inferior service and inability to enjoy my stay to no avail. multiple problems, mainly staff oriented. Not one management team member reached out until I left. Then only to falsify their efforts and condescend a former guest to the point of tears. enough of the incompetent staff. my room, 1616, had stains all over the car... Read more

This is an older hotel right in the middle of La Jolla. Park with the valet and walk to almost anywhere that is important to visit (other than La Jolla Shores and the aquarium--but I'd skip that if I was going to Sea World). Clean (though older) rooms, comfy bed, great staff, very scenic location and well kept grounds, nice pool area. I'd definitely stay here again--probably treat myself to a room with a view next time. Oh, and I'd get a room with a less noisy AC unit--my only complaint. 4.... Read more
