It's location and staff are great

I have stayed at a number of Kimpton hotels and I think this property is the one that least reflects what I have come to expect from a Kimpton.

Felt like a stay at an airline

Posted May 18, 2015
Pros: great ambiance, the lobby is very nice.
Cons: Parking, wifi, the parking staff was really snobby.
Location: Its located close to the beach but very far from everything else.
very nice hotel but they forgot about the little things. No soap dish in the shower, no where to park unless you want to pay an aditional $30 a night, wifi is an aditional $15. For close to $200 a night I thought I would be able to park on hotel grounds and enjoy a decent shower; you know the things you get at a $60 a night hotel like the best western or any of the major chains.

Specify room location

Posted Apr 10, 2015
Nice hotel. Valet guys are. very welcoming, polite & helpful. Booked room thru Expedia hoping to get a high floor balcony for the amazing & got ground level with patio across from main elevator. Avoid rooms ending in #5. Asked to switch on 2nd day & they granted it which was awesome. Grat glass of wine from 5-6 was Fronterra - very cheap wine. Restaurant & lounge on top floor has amazing view at sunset.

Fairly nice hotel, a bit tired feeling

Posted Apr 7, 2015
A perfectly decent hotel although feels very tired & dated, like it was once really cool about 10 years ago, could really do with a bit of a freshen up. Lovely location about 3 mins walk from La Jolla Shores beach, shops & restaurants. Staff were friendly & the free shuttle into La Jolla was great.
