This is the place to stay for those special events in ones life. Romantic and worth-every-penny.

La Valencia is one of the oldest in La Jolla and has had an interesting history from it's conception 15 December 1926 / it's grand opening, two years later on 29 December 1928, until today.

The hotel has been impacted by Hollywood celebrities, US Military personnel, WW II, the Korean War, the University of Californina at San Diego as well as the exploding population of La Jolla.

All this means that La Valencia Hotel has been an active member of San Diego's community in La Jolla and has rightfully gained the reputation of being a "Class Act."

The excellent service philosophy of La Valencia has interesting roots. Seems that the rich and famous staying at La Valencia wanted to remain anonymous, Yet, still expected service to be as accommodating as if they had been recognized.

The Solution: Treat all guests as if they were Rich and Famous, and they do!

Unique Qualities: If you can't afford a room, enjoy a delicious meal in the Mediterranean Room Restaurant, a nice compromise or have a few drinks at the Whaling Bar & Grill, it can really spark up an ordinary evening. The Sky Room is more elegant, more expensive and offers excellent views from each of it's twelve tables, but reservations are a must--make them months ahead to be sure!

However, if you can afford a room take it and pamper yourself!
