What we love

  • Meditteranean-style property is one of the oldest hotels in the area
  • Ocean-front hotel is a AAA Four Diamond Award winner
  • Offers a range of accommodations, including vintage rooms all the way up to modern suites
  • Luxurious imported bed linens and toiletries
  • Perfect location near the beach, fabulous shopping and restaurants
  • Heated outdoor pool and hot tub
  • Pet friendly

Keep in Mind

  • Smallest rooms are quite cozy at 250 square feet
  • Classic standard rooms start at 400 square feet
  • With many room types and few queens, book the room you desire rather than try to get an upgrade
  • Few rooms that sleep 4
  • While there is no on-site spa, guests can enjoy in-room massages
  • There are very few rooms that offer balconies

Notable Facts

  • La Valencia opened its doors as an apartment hotel in 1926 during Hollywood's Golden Era
  • It was a popular spot for location shots and a quick getaway for the stars
  • During World War II, the hotel's tower was used to scan the skies and seas for enemy planes and ships

Frog Family Tips

  • Make sure to spend some time perusing the rotating works of art and its permanent collection
  • Head over to watch the sea lions sunbathing and playing on Children's Beach
  • Consider upgrading from the standard room; ocean view rooms are particularly nice

Best For

  • Families, adults and couples looking for elegant, upscale accommodations in La Jolla
