LA VALENCIA HOTEL
1132 Prospect Street
La Jolla, California 92037
(858) 456-3921 fax
An ornate 1926 Spanish Mediterranean-style building enhanced by a year-round kaleidoscope of fresh flowers and greenery inside and out, La Valencia is just a seashell's throw from the Pacific. Stroll the oceanfront lawn, relax on the beach or the sundeck, swim in the surf or in the hotel's heated heart-shaped swimming pool. At the foot of the hotel grounds is the famous Cove in Scripps Park, with miles of sandy beaches.
The lobby area features European furnishings, oriental antique screens and carpets, painted ceilings, art works, a grand piano, and an antique puzzle to ponder. Guest rooms are individually decorated in traditional California-style, with pastel hues. Our favorite suite, in a frosted bronze, coconut milk, and chantilly green color scheme, affords a sweeping postcard-pretty view of the ocean and the hotel's flower garden from a private balcony as well as from the spacious living room.
The Sky Room restaurant serves outstanding haute cuisine. The restaurant, intimate and elegant, is located on the 10th floor and has 12 tables, each with a spectacular ocean view. Mauve colors, Wedgewood china, crystal, silver, fresh flowers and roses on the tables create a special atmosphere that is known as the "Most Romantic Restaurant in San Diego."
The Whaling Bar & Grill and Cafe La Rue, with its clublike ambiance reminiscent of an English pub, is the place to see and be seen in La Jolla. The Whaling Bar is cozy and serves American Grilled Cuisine. The Mediterranean Room Restaurant and Tropical Patio offer views of the Pacific Ocean, or dine outside on the beautiful Patio adorned with Palms and flowers.
Most recently open is the Ocean View Terrace, offering breakfast, lunch or dinner in the open air with the best ocean view dining in La Jolla.
