Escape to La Valencia Hotel

Hospitality at La Valencia, La Jolla. La Valencia Hotel,

Perched above the sun-drenched beaches of La Jolla, La Valencia Hotel has been a neighborhood institution for nearly a century. Known as the “Pink Lady” for its distinctively rosy stucco facade and red roof tiles, the hotel holds a soft spot in the hearts of locals and vacationers alike. The rooms, available in four varieties—the Vintage, Classic, Villa, and ICON collections—celebrate the history of the space while offering the best of modern conveniences: sumptuous Frette linens, down comforters, and luxe imported bath amenities. Not to mention the ocean views.

Eataly: Eat, Shop, Learn. Eataly L.A
