La Valencia Hotel


La Valencia Hotel is a seaside Mediterranean-style luxury property overlooking the Pacific Ocean from 12 miles north of San Diego in La Jolla, California.  Known for its distinctive pink exterior, beautiful courtyards, hand-painted murals, Spanish mosaics, and panoramic views of The Pacific Ocean, this unique hotel has been one of California’s top luxury destinations since 1926.

The basic guestrooms, which range from 250 to 450 square feet in size, feature an extensive list of luxurious touches like 100 % Egyptian cotton linens, down comforters, aromatherapy toiletries from Gilchrest and Soames, and complementary high-speed wireless internet.  The rooms overlook the mighty Pacific Ocean, the lush hotel gardens, or the quaint surrounding village of La Jolla, so no matter where your room is located, you’ll have a picturesque view to enjoy.  Most of the guestrooms at La Valencia Hotel are equipped with plasma TVs, and some feature their own small private balconies.

The suites include all of the same amenities as the guestrooms, but are larger and feature living rooms with sofa sleepers and separate bedrooms.  The suites feature wet bars, and luxurious bathrooms with separate showers and bathtubs.  Many feature whirlpools and private balconies for intimate conversation.

The most discerning travelers will enjoy staying in the Ocean Villas, the most modern and luxurious of all accommodations at La Valencia Hotel.  Built in 2000, these spacious villas feature white fir beamed ceilings, Italian marble floors, and sinks and baths with black granite accents.  Each Ocean Villa boasts a private patio for outdoor dining and conversation, and most have fireplaces.  They are all outfitted with flat screen plasma televisions and state of the art Lyceum digital audio systems.  The luxurious master bathrooms feature double sinks, steam showers with oversized rain showerheads, and whirlpool tubs.   The hotel’s premier villa, the La Valencia Suite, also features an indoor/outdoor fireplace, a wraparound patio, and a full wet bar.  As an Ocean Villa guest, you will be welcomed to La Valencia Hotel with a complementary cocktail and a special amenity, plus butler service that will accommodate any and all of your needs.

La Valencia Hotel is home to three distinct restaurants, The Sky Room, The Whaling Bar and Grill, and The Mediterranean Room.  Located on the tenth floor, the elegant Sky Room offers impressive 180 degree views of The Pacific Ocean and innovative dishes made with the freshest local ingredients.  Meanwhile, The Whaling Bar and Grill is a local favorite that captures the feel of an old world seaside pub.  The décor consists of dark red leather banquettes, a mahogany bar and paneling, lanterns, pewter candleholders, and antique wooden shudders.  The menu features continental cuisine with a southern California twist.  Finally, The Mediterranean Room has been pleasing La Valencia guests and locals alike for over 50 years.

The great weather and white sands make the beaches of La Jolla a great place to sunbathe and relax year-round.  You can also splash around in The Pacific or kayak in the calm waters of La Jolla Cove.  Skate or jog down the two-mile boardwalk that is just steps away from La Valencia Hotel.

World-renowned Torrey Pines Golf Course, the host of the 2008 U.S. Open and the annual Buick Invitational, is just a fifteen minute drive from La Valencia Hotel.  This par-72 course features challenging holes overlooking the Pacific Ocean and dramatic pine trees that add to the scenery at this excellent course.  Also within an hour’s drive are the Maderas Golf Course and the Aviara Golf Course.  The hotel offers complementary transportation to its sister property, Rancho Valencia, which Tennis Magazine awarded the title of “#1 Resort for Tennis in the US” in 2008.  Than of course there’s The Valencia Spa, where the idyllic setting, warm sun rays, rhythmic ocean waves, and seaside breezes create a feeling of serenity and wellbeing.  The spa at La Valencia offers an extensive menu of skin care treatments, body care packages, and massages.  Try the La Valencia Signature Massage, in which a blend of Ylang Ylang, sandlewood, and coconut oil allows you to drift into a world of pure relaxation while you receive a rejuvenating massage.

La Jolla is Spanish for ‘the jewel’ a term that is perfectly fitting for the town that the La Valencia Hotel is set in.  There is a plethora of shopping, including exclusive designer stores and trendy local boutiques.  Also of interest are La Jolla Caves, and the Torrey Pines Gliderport, the top paragliding school in North America.  Learn how to paraglide or hang glide and than fly over the Pacific scenery.  While La Valencia Hotel is set in a quiet, exclusive cove, the major city of San Diego is just twelve miles away, and features attractions like the world-famous San Diego Zoo, SeaWorld San Diego, Del Mar Racetrack and Thoroughbred Club, the San Diego Polo Club, and LegoLand for the kids.
