Having stayed at Kimpton hotels in Seattle and Chicago we wanted this to be of same standard we experienced then. The staff are really friendly and helpful. Happy hour with complimentary wine and beer is a really nice touch. The restaurant is well above average and not too expensive. Try the slow cooked beef cheeks. The hotel building is just...

Thanks for the review frankCentralScotland and thanks for spending your time away from Scotland with us. I really wish our service by the staff and experience in Cusp could overcome that oceanside challenge we come up against and that is the constant dust. Breeze everywhere with sliding doors facing the Pacific and an open exterior from the room entrance can...

Well we were really concerned having looked at the recent reviews however pleasantly surprised. Having raised our concerns with Trail-finders, we got the feeling that extra effort was being put in - great for us regardless. Room was on 6th floor - nice views. Staff very friendly and very helpful. Food comparable to the rest of the area. Understand the...

Hi Robert B! Thank you for the words of support in terms of some potentially misleading reviews.

The hotel was exactly as described online. Gorgeous interior and decorations. Most of the hotels I had seen in the area when planning our trip were outdated and gloomy. The Kimpton is very pretty, attention to detail and cozy. Wonderful staff. Super friendly and helpful from the minute we pulled up. I would recommend requesting a room on a top...

Hi KerriannAZ, Your words of wisdom were spot on, and in response to your mattress issues we are in the midst of looking for new ones. It's about that time if our guests aren't accomplishing what they came to do and that's have a good night's sleep. Come back and see us soon!

The hotel itself is actually in a good location relative to La Jolla with (if you are on a high floor) a good view of the Pacific Ocean. The hotel does not have an impressive drive up except for at night where they have lined the driveway with fire pits which makes for a somewhat grand entrance. In my opinion,...

Hi clay3c, Unfortunately average isn't ok and definitely not below average. Yes, the hotel is from 1972 but redone most recently just a few years ago. Yes, we do have some new staff who are learning their ways around the technical side of their job but I hope that what we offered is a boutique type experience where service is...

My husband and I picked this hotel after reading all the great reviews and looking at the pictures. I honestly am perplexed by all the great reviews. My first impression as I got off the elevator was that I felt like I was at a motel rather than a hotel. The hallway off of the elevator that lead to the...

Hi Jill G, It looks like you had a terrible first impression and quite honestly it's a tough pill to swallow especially when we can't clean up after some unruly guests appropriately. I am happy that our team recognized your frustrations however and were happy to help. If you ever feel like giving us a second chance please feel free...

After reading some fairly positive reviews, we booked 5 nights to celebrate our 26th wedding anniversary. After checking in and seeing the room the first night, I told the front desk we would be checking out the next morning and under no circumstances would we be paying any cancellation fees (48 hour cancellation required). The first room was horrible and...

Yikes Brian G, I am not sure where to begin but it sounds like the entire experience just couldn't have gone any worse and for that I sincerely apologize. It's true that we are an older hotel with 11 floors overlooking the Pacific but I can see you are passionate about your experience and I am just happy that our...

Really loved the hotel staff rooms and the bar and restaurant on the 11th floor with great view. Good location to everything just short drive to La Jolla down town or half to La Jolla Shores.

From the second my daughter and I got out of the car everyone we encountered was genuinely nice. From the valet to the front desk and up to the restaurant, all employees were pleasant and there was an overall relaxed feeling while still maintaining professionalism. Once we got upstairs I was beyond impressed with the view. Who knew this was...
