Ideal Staycation Hotels in La Jolla
Staycations are becoming more and more popular in cities like San Diego. With so many things to do and with people having less free time available, people are starting to vacation in their own city. While you may not be getting away completely, staying at a hotel is just like a vacation and can provide guests with the much needed R&R they are looking for.
San Diegans can escape the hustle and bustle of life by indulging in a massage at the wellness spa, or relax by the large outdoor pool at the La Valencia Hotel. Guests of the La Valencia can also enjoy fine Mediterranean food at the restaurant onsite, relax in the lounge which features live music or enjoy some shopping in the adjacent La Jolla Village.
Insider Tip: The La Valencia often has discounts and hotel specials on their main website. From romance packages to room upgrades and additional amenities, be sure to check their promotional offers prior to reserving a room. For the most savings, try to reserve your stay during non-peak seasons and weekdays.
For those who are staycationing with their family, a great hotel to stay at is the La Jolla Shores Beach and Tennis Club. La Jolla Shores Beach and Tennis Club offers a wide range of recreational activities suitable for all ages, interests and skill levels. Family members can get tennis lessons by professionals on one of the hotel's full-sized tennis courts or step right onto the beach and learn to surf or kayak.
Insider Tip: Be sure to request a beach front room, regardless if it's on the first or second floor. Rooms on the first floor, or "beach level" open directly onto the beach, making them ideal for beachgoers. For guests who want additional privacy or less noise, a second floor room is best.
Another relaxing La Jolla hotel perfect for staycations is La Jolla's historic Grande Colonial Hotel. The Grande Colonial's early 1900s decor will make guests feel as if they went back in time to the hotel's early days. The Grande Colonial provides a relaxing getaway oasis for couples and those with small children. Guests can enjoy relaxing at the hotel's private garden and pool, or with an award-wining wine from the Colonial's onsite restaurant. To give a little extra reprieve for stressed out parents, the Grande Colonial also provides babysitting and daycare services.
Insider Tip: The Grande Colonial is one of the most in-demand hotels in La Jolla. Availability tends to fill up quickly especially during the summer and holidays. Reserve as early as possible as rates will continue to raise until they sell out.
