Excellent staff the room was cozy but the bathroom was a little on the small side. Nice evening entertainment with a guitar player in the bar.

Dear Guest; Thank you first and foremost for recognizing the hotel . I am so sorry that you were disappointedin your room - my hope is that you also shared this with our front office, we are sometimes sold out and limited in what our options are but we do like to learn of your experience, apologize and then see how we can positively impact your stay and expeirence. La V does have a large variety of rooms types, and your feedback on 811 is very important. I am sharing this with our Front Office Manager as well as our Diretor of Housekeeping and Maintenance to inspect the room. As a boutique hotel we have varied types from our traditional/vintage room (most are located in the ocean facing tower wing) then these 250-300 sq. ft. rooms pale in size to the 650 sq. ft. and larger villas and suites (most of our suites are located in our historic Cabrillo and Sevilla Wings. The Villas are below our main entry and also closer to Scripps Park and the Ocean. Thank you for your time and feedback – we will continue to work on crafting ideal guest experiences. Best regards, Rita Moore Director of Sales

It's needs a makeover

Posted Oct 9, 2017
Pros: The location and some staff were great.
Cons: As above
Location: LaJolla was a lovely location with good restaurants.
The staff were courteous , location great , but the bathrooms need updating. Some rooms above the kitchen were noisy due to the extraction. When the air condition was turned off there was a whilsting noise through the vents, the whole night. The room had no kettle or Tea, so not catering for anyone that drinks tea, a very simple requirement. The room service did not provide you with sachets of tea or milk, had to ask room service for it every morning. The inroom catering can be improved. Considering a beautiful location the hotel was average . During check out they even charged me for car parking, very strange as I did not have car. Charged me for minibar but I did not consume anything, I was glad I checked the bill?

Dear Keith, Thank you so much for your detailed response, we so appreciate when guests do outline the mis-steps our staff orproperty standards left the guest wantng. We appreciate the comments on the staff and location - and I hope that in the coming months and years you will return to see how we continue to thrive and respond to our guest needs. As a 90+ historic building, bathroom size and decor does vary - but you will be happy to know that is one of our focus points for 2018, as we continue to evaluate timely upgrades and refreshes to each room. My apology for the lack of tea, as well as your inroom dining experience. The coffee maker in each room should also have the tea pods for our tea lovers, as well as the Front Office can send electric pots up to guests. Again, thank you for being so detailed - each point will be shared with the proper manager so that upon a return visit your guest service will be exceptional.

The room we had was beautiful but was next to an open shaft next to the kitchen. The noise from fans and motors was awful
