Deal at La Jolla’s La Valencia Hotel

August 19, 2012 | By | Reply More

La Jolla’s La Valencia Hotel is known as “the pink lady.”

If you are planning to vacation (or stay-cation) in San Diego’s favorite coastal community between now and January 31, 2013, “The Pink Lady” is offering three nights for the price of two – but you must make your reservation for this great deal at La Jolla’s La Valencia Hotel before September 9.

La V is the centerpiece of La Jolla’s restaurant row and considered by many to be our best hotel. In addition to 112 luxurious rooms, suites, and villas, La Valencia offers an ocean-view swimming pool surrounded by lush landscaping, four distinctly different restaurants, and a beautifully-appointed lounge overlooking Scripps Parks and the Pacific.

Built in 1926 in the Spanish Revival-style, the hotel reflects La Jolla’s heritage and is a wonderful place to celebrate a special occasion. Scripps Park, between the hotel and the ocean, is a beautiful green space for picnics, strolling, and romantic sunset views. 

La Sala lobby lounge – with its potted palms, traditional furnishings, terracotta floor, and panoramic picture windows –  is my favorite place for afternoon tea or pre-dinner cocktails. Live entertainment,  innovative tapas, an extensive martini menu, a broad selection of California wines, and decadent desserts add to the popularity of this “living room.”

The hotel’s Whaling Bar  & Grill has a completely different feel. Here, seafaring artifacts create the feeling of an old-world seaside pub, accentuated by deep red leather banquettes, mahogany bar and paneling, lanterns, and antique wooden shutters.

It’s hard to say what’s most impressive about La Valencia: the traditional charm, outstanding service, or impressive location.

About the Author ()

I live in La Jolla and I'm a travel writer, so in addition to enjoying my home town's great weather, beautiful surroundings, and range of cultural and recreational options, I also see La Jolla - and the rest of San Diego - as a travel destination. And what I see sometimes drives me batty. People vacation in La Jolla, but don't take advantage of everything our community offers, so I decided to start this blog and provide insider advice for out-of-towners. Hey. I figure if I can write insider tips about exotic destinations on Authentic Luxury Travel, I ought to be able to lead readers off the beaten path that starts just outside my front door. In the process, I'm having fun revisiting my favorite places and discovering some new ones. Travel writers are naturally snoopy, and this blog is my excuse to have a good ol' sticky beak around my home town. I hope you find it helpful. If you are coming to La Jolla or another area of San Diego and would like my help in planning your trip, please read "Need Help Planning Your Trip" and then email me at ehansen298@aol.com.
