This hotel is an easy 5 minute walk to the beach, and has easy access to La Jolla Village and La Jolla Shores.

My husband and I stayed here for three nights and picked the Kimpton brand because of a previous good experience. It was our first time at Hotel La Jolla and were initially assigned to room 700.

I came to SD for a travel conference and wanted to try this Kimpton property. Aside from the mandatory $30 a night parking, it was a great experience. Upon check-in, I was upgraded to a Suite thanks to my Inner Circle status. The room was very spacious! It had 2 bathrooms, a living room, master bedroom with 2 balconies. I... More
