Very nice four-day getaway here in La Jolla Shores. Excellent front desk and valet staff. Valet parking is half price for hybrid vehicles. Great range of restaurants and ocean amenities within walking distance. Ditto for neighborhood walks with large variety of front gardens and house architecture. Road noise is substantial. You have been warned. Front desk provides ear plugs if... More

This hotel was perfect for a long weekend retreat. The location is good. Very close to the beach and restaurants and right down the road from the Birch Aquarium. It's not in the town center, but there is a hotel shuttle which will take you back and forth any time you want. It is walkable, but the sidewalk is very... More

I had a wonderful stay at this hotel. Great view, very clean and comfortable room. Best part was the outdoor pool/lounge/bar area. Great food and amazing drinks and cool, stylish lounging with fire place and torches. Can't wait to go back.

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights on a business trip. The reservation was made by an admin, company selection criteria. The building has the bones of an old hotel/motel, with outdoor access ways to the room, an old concrete backbone. The room is remodeled with the usual Kimpton finish, with a well-stocked snack and amenities bar in the room.... More

I only stayed one night, but I'm a huge fan of Kimpton Hotels. The customer service, the clean, crisp rooms and amenities and the hotel restaurants are generally fantastic. Despite the extremely loud, thoughtless guests above me, security did handle them after two calls, the hotel was fabulous, fun and fresh. It's a short, easy walk to the beach. The... More

This is our second stay here since this became a Kimpton property, and we once again had a fabulous stay. The refurbished rooms, the well-equipped fitness center, comfortable outdoor pool and bar area, lovely setting and views all make this an excellent hotel. But the real difference is the staff.
