La Jolla Hotels, Inns and Bed & Breakfasts

Screen Shot 2017-08-26 at 3.43.47 PM

Planning on visiting La Jolla? Super! You surely won’t be disappointed in the assortment and value of the area accommodations. Whether you are popping into La Jolla for a hurried business trip, a singular event, or a protracted vacation, visitors will find the appropriate rooms for all their needs. La Jolla accommodations consist of swank resorts, celebrated hotels, comfy bed and breakfast inns, and appropriately situated motels. While you’re visiting La Jolla, you may opt to holiday near the Pacific Ocean and the downtown Village area, or just a tad outside of town, and yet remain close to all of the foremost attractions in La Jolla and the greater San Diego area.

Visitors may choose from several motels in and around La Jolla. Several are to be found within a short hike of numerous shops, restaurants and the oceanfront. If you don’t fret over somewhat longer jaunts up or down the picturesque Pacific Coast, or even brief drives, you may choose to stay at a number of motels just south of La Jolla near the Bird Rock community and Windansea Beach, or north closer to Del Mar, or even east, near University City and a number of major shopping centers and restaurants. In short, you simply can’t go wrong in the La Jolla community.

On the other hand, if a resort or spa vacation is what you have your heart set on, you may choose to check into a host of lavish vacation spots in La Jolla. Some of these consist of the Hyatt Regency, the Marriott Hotel, the Hilton, the Estancia Hotel and Spa, the Lodge at Torrey Pines, and the renowned La Jolla Shores Hotel. When you check in at these finer resort hotels, fully expect to be indulged with all the spoiling you need. Indeed, from massages by the pool to beauty and rejuvenating treatments, visitors will find the treatment exemplary. In addition, you will experience fine dining at La Jolla’s resort hotels, all of which feature some of the preeminent restaurants and celebrated chefs in the greater San Diego area.

As an extra bonus, if you happen to be a golf or tennis aficionado, La Jolla offers two great hotels that will situate you and/or your loved ones right next to all the action. For one, the Lodge at Torrey Pines offers all the amenities of an extravagant resort and is situated nearby the acclaimed Torrey Pines Golf Course, a stop on the PGA tour. In addition, The La Jolla Shores Hotel is situated next to the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club, and is positioned on one of San Diego’s finest beaches. Replete with an expansive grassy picnic area and mild surf, La Jolla Shores Beach is absolutely picture-perfect for the entire family.

On the other hand, if cozy and the romantic beckons you, by all means consider checking in to one of numerous bed and breakfast inns in La Jolla. For instance, The Bed and Breakfast Inn in La Jolla is situated mere steps from La Jolla Cove and offers more than a few delightful rooms with cozy fireplaces. Conversely, for business travelers, the smaller La Jolla inns are indeed a comfy home away from home and yet still provide suitable locales and sought after creature comforts.

For those visitors with a penchant for immersing themselves in La Jolla’s historical past and culture, you’ll immediately fall head over heels with refined and deep-rooted hotels, including the distinguished Grande Colonial and La Valencia. Both of these quality accommodations are located in the very heart of La Jolla Village near shops, quality restaurants, interesting museums and unique art galleries.

For a little background, consider that The Grande Colonial commenced business way back in 1913, thus making it La Jolla’s oldest, original hotel. Overlooking the Pacific Ocean, it was designed by Richard Requa, an architect who also conceived many of the historic buildings in San Diego’s world-renown Balboa Park.

During the Roaring 20s, the hotel attained the popular drugstore next door, moving it inside the hotel along with featuring an ice cream parlor on the sidewalk just out front. Consequently, both the sidewalk cafe and the hotel soon became an admired place to hang out for residents and celebrities who wanted to get away. Believe it or not, the drugstore pharmacist was none other than Gregory Peck, Sr., the father of well-known thespian Gregory Peck, who was born and raised in La Jolla and subsequently established the celebrated La Jolla Playhouse. Today the Grande Colonial remains a popular gathering spot for visitors to La Jolla. The hotel staff takes pride in offering guests an exclusive combo of up-to-date amenities and old-fashioned, European sophistication. And you surely don’t want to miss out on the award-winning Nine-Ten restaurant!

La Jolla boasts of other famous historic hotels such as the La Valencia, an amiable Spanish-style edifice looking out over the Pacific Ocean. Also known as the Pink Lady, La Valencia initially launched in 1926. Much like the Grande Colonial, La Valencia rapidly became trendy with numerous celebs, especially those who happened to be acting at the La Jolla Playhouse. In addition to La Jolla native Gregory Peck, other stars included Dorothy McGuire, Mel Ferrer, Jose Ferrer, Joseph Cotton, Richard Basehart, Charlton Heston, Ginger Rogers, Jennifer Jones, Lorne Green, and David Niven. Furthermore, La Jolla novelist Raymond Chandler often chose to frequent the hotel’s Whaling Bar and used La Valencia as a setting for his mystery thriller, Playback. The Pink Lady still appeals to visitors from around the world today, but natives and residents cherish it because of its lunches, Sunday brunches, and the scenic 180-degree view from the top floor Sky Room restaurant. La Valencia is also a very popular location for weddings and other jubilant merriments and unique festivities.

So why wait for somebody else’s distinctive occasion, when you may create your very own in ever-appealing La Jolla? Whatever your desires and circumstances when visiting La Jolla, there is a hotel accommodation that is historic, modern, simple or luxurious. Indeed, whether you seek to vacation or visit the very heart of the Village or close by, you will constantly discover something distinctive when you visit La Jolla.
