Overlooking La Jolla Cove and the sky-blue Pacific Ocean, it’s easy to comprehend how La Valencia Hotel took its inspiration from the resorts lining the Mediterranean Sea. Walk toward “the Jewel of La Jolla,” as La Valencia is known, and you pass the colonnade flanking the palm-shaded patio before entering the lobby. Don’t be surprised if you become immediately drawn from the lobby into the lounge; its hand-painted ceiling and spectacular floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the ocean have a way of luring guests in.
he hotel and each of the 116 guest rooms and suites are richly appointed with rare furnishings, exquisite Spanish mosaics and hand-painted murals and ceilings. Little has changed at the hotel since it opened in 1926, save the construction of the lavish gold-and-blue-domed tower, which was utilized as a civil defense lookout during World War II. And, in 2000, La Valencia added 15 ocean villas, the ultimate in luxe escape, offering complete butler service, ocean-facing patios and fireplaces. Simply put, La Valencia provides a much-needed oasis in Southern California, far enough from the mayhem of Los Angeles and San Diego, but close enough to easily return to it when the need or desire arises.
The La Valencia Hotel is an ideal destination for executive conferences and corporate retreats where work and relaxation go hand-in-hand. With thousands of feet of indoor and outdoor meeting and banquet space, the hotel can accommodate groups and parties from 10 to 500 guests. The Board Room is ideal for smaller meetings of up to 20 people. At 1,657 and 1,440 square feet, the Verandah Room and Terrace accommodates groups of up to 200 (reception) or 150 (sit-down). The Galeria is the perfect size for medium groups of between 50 and 75. A staff of professional conference coordinators ensures that every aspect of your meeting is handled smoothly and efficiently.

Each of La Valencia’s 116 guest rooms and suites has its own individual style and character. Designed with a European flair, the hotel successfully offers a suggestion of the old with all the conveniences of the new. Rooms and suites may overlook the bustling village, the luscious gardens or the blue Pacific. All guest rooms have windows that open, allowing the scent of blooming flowers and the crisp ocean air to fill the room. In addition, 15 newly completed Ocean Villas evoke a sense of open, airy and casual elegance imbued with hints of fun via accents of bright color in the upholstery and furnishings. A private butler accompanies each villa, along with a fireplace and an oceanfront patio.
La Valencia has three award-winning restaurants that each became La Jolla establishments the day they opened.
