I stay at this hotel every time I am in the San Diego area. There is no place like the La Jolla Shores area of La Jolla. It's less crowded than the villiage proper and it has a great central location. Your a 6 minute walk to the beach (great beach to run and watch the surf) and 8 minutes...

Wow elviajero1019! We love hearing that you stay with us every time you visit San Diego. Your review points out the exact idea we want our guests to have as it pertains to unwinding and enjoying the beach. We look forward to seeing you again the next time you travel to San Diego. Cheers, Jeremy

The rooms in this hotel are comfortable and attractive, and the front desk staff are very friendly and helpful. The restaurant/bar upstairs has a good happy hour and great views. The poolside bar is also nice. The pool is nicely landscaped, but is fairly noisy due to the adjacent road. The housekeeping was not at the level I have come...

We took the whole family, including the dog, for a weekend at the beach. From the first contact in booking the room, to check in and throughout our stay, the front desk staff, bell staff, and the restaurant and bar staff were exceptional. Everyone was very friendly, remembered us by name and went out of their way to make us...

We came to San Diego for our anniversary weekend, and didn't realize it was the weekend of Comic Con. Which turned out to be a blessing in disguise because we had to look outside the city for hotel and we found this gem! Beautiful boutique hotel. When we arrived to our room, there was a sweet note wishing us a...

We live in the neighborhood and sometimes have out of town visitors that need a recommendation of where to stay. We want to put them somewhere nice and also close by. This hotel has great potential, the location is great and its completely remodeled/renovated. Management doesn't really care if they get your business or not. I've also tried to host...

Pros: 1) The staff was exceptional - everyone was always very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. 2) Beautiful views - the higher floors have great ocean views. 3) Location - beach access is a short 5-10 minute walk away and the hotel will provide beach mats, etc. 4) The 11th floor bar/restaurant has beautiful views of the ocean and...

My husband had to come to La Jolla on business, so I tagged along. I'm so happy I did! Kimpton Hotels always offer exceptional service and this location was no different. From the smiling valet, to the super friendly, welcoming front desk staff and the attentive Cusp Restaurant staff, we were treated as if we were their only guest. No...

We were walking distance to the beach. They have a free shuttle that takes you to the shopping area in La Jolla. Staff was very friendly. The hotel is dog-friendly -- home is too far away for me to bring my dog, but it's nice to see that they truly are welcoming to the canines. I give it only 4...

Thank you for the taking the time to talk about us CelticCurl Y. We love seeing those four star reviews and hopefully more next time, but it seems that our outdoor bar Hiatus was having a little fun the night you stayed with us. It will close by 10pm each evening but we completely understand that some of our other...

Very nice hotel, but...parking costs $30/night (+tipping). They are very nice and very fast. WiFi is not free. They did not offer breakfast except coffee in the lobby. No in room coffee. Ice machine every other floor. No vending machines but nearby is a quick stop store. If you leave the room after 1000 or 1015 maids will not clean...

Hi BudandCarol, Thanks for coming out to Cali all the way from MD. I am sorry that we were not able to accurately inform you of some of the misconceptions surrounding your stay. First, WiFi at all Kimpton hotels is FREE, just sign up for our Karma Rewards program (which is free) and boom! free wifi from here to eternity....

I was surprised to read negative reviews of this relatively new Kimpton property. Two of us stayed three days...we have no complaints. The staff were genuinely pleasant and extremely helpful. The room was quiet, beautifully appointed, with beautiful views and a balcony. Lobby was nicely arranged; pool and outside areas had lots of options for group or private conversations. A...

Awesome and thank you auntiemame333! We love hearing feedback such as yours, at the end of the day if the faces on property aren't smiling and taking care of our guests we aren't doing our jobs.
