The service was wonderful, the hotel is beautiful. But the room was really small and the bed was very uncomfortable unfortunately. I’ll go back but I hope they have different room’s

Simply put, the property is worn and messy. A hotel charging $700 per night should at the very least have in room clean towels daily if they can't provide maid service.

We arrived at 4:30pm and our room wasn’t ready yet. At 5:30pm they put us in a room with no proper windows! The windows we’re covered with a white plexi glass. Considering the rate that I paid, I asked to be moved to a room with actual windows. They tell us that it will take at least another to get another room cleaned out because they only have one housekeeper available. We finally get to the room with windows at 8:30pm and if you’re a light sleeper you’re SOL. The AC was extremely loud everyone it came in that my kids kept waking up all night. Also, our room didn’t get cleaned out until we asked for housekeeping to clean the room. We were told that they didn’t have enough staff. Overall, the hotel stay was a disappointment considering the room rate they charge. I expected much better.

It is an iconic property in beautiful La Jolla. It has been around since 1926, so expect smaller rooms, but have been thoroughly renovated. The location is excellent, within walking distance to the beach, shops, restaurants, bars, etc.
