Great value

This hotel is in the quieter part of La Jolla, a few minutes walk to the beach at La Jolla shores. The staff was awesome and very helpful. The will run you to "downtown" La Jolla (and pick you up) in their shuttle for free.

We came down to La Jolla for a long weekend and stayed 4 nights at the Hotel La Jolla. Great location, close to the beach and local restaurants. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel has a free shuttle to down town La Jolla. Can't wait to go back!!

Lovely pool area and the staff were amazing!

Posted Aug 7, 2014
Pros: Staff and the pool area
Cons: Outside bar to be opened earlier than 4pm!
Unfortunately I only stayed one night but it was a great experience - loved the free shuttle to wherever we wanted to go and La Jolla was a beautiful spot. I want to go back!

The BEST hospitality service in my entire traveling experiences. The staff were extremely professional and caring, from the valets to the front desk to housekeeping. The room was fabulous, view of the ocean just gorgeous.....I have become a Kimpton convert! Kimpton Hotels mission is for everyone to have such a wonderful experience that you would want to extend your stay. It worked, I did!

Disappointing

Posted Jul 27, 2014
To summarise - the hotel is well located, but in need of refurbishment (inadequate soundproofing - especially from the noisy outside bar, bathroom door doesn't lock in both rooms we stayed in). The 'incidentals' are expensive - restaurant, $28 per night for car parking plus gratuities each time the valet takes or brings the car, and we made 3 or 4 calls to LA and were charged over $60! Will look for other places next time.

Thank you Graham for staying with us and for taking time to share your feedback. I'm dissapointed to see that you did not enjoy your stay with us. If you give us another chance, we will certainly find a room in a different location for you that will be quieter for you. Thank you again for your feedback. All my best, Shannon Foster General Manager

Very elegant and upscale. Lots of pampering!

Posted Jul 22, 2014
Pros: The staff members
Cons: It would've been nice to have a microwave in the room and a bigger fridge. Also a children's playroom and children's bikes.
Location: You can walk to the beach- On the way you pass plenty of stores and local eateries. Subway, Starbucks and mini-mart/gas station are 1 block away.
I stayed here with my 30something daughter and 5year old nephew and we felt that our business was very important to the hotel. The staff was super friendly and VERY accommodating. From the valet to the housekeeping to the front desk staff---the Kimpton La Jolla hotel staff made us feel like royalty.
