La Valencia Hotel, a Remarkable San Diego La Jolla Oceanfront Hotel
When today’s baby boomer contemplates a vacation at a luxurious location, the enlightened hotelier will profoundly understand that this particular client is not only looking for the best of amenities, but is likely most of all looking for a remarkable experience.
You see, when we stayed at the La Valencia Hotel, we didn’t bring any amenities back home with us, except for a used bar of Gilchrist & Soames soap, but we left the La Valencia Hotel will a passel of the most wonderful memories.
And wonderful memories are fickle things. They don’t just happen. You must go out of your way to create a special memory. And, the special memory must be sought after with a spirit of giving, rather than a desire for accolades.
I am very pleased to report that the La Valencia Hotel understands these things very, very clearly, and that Carol and I now possess the most wonderful memories of La Valencia Hotel, and further, greatly desire to visit again.
Also, this 1926 historic hotel not only possesses the character and feel of a centuries old Mediterranean resort, with its proud perch upon the crest of La Jolla Cove, but its sirens call has been alluring not only Hollywood’s rich and famous for decades, but has endeared itself to the hearts of many thousands of loyal patrons as well.

As Carol mentioned in the video, and I hope you noticed from my photographs, this is a remarkable property in a remarkable location.
While this hotel lies centrally located in the wonderful town of La Jolla, what you should also know is that right outside the back gate of the La Valencia Hotel is Scripps Park.
Scripps Park is a wonderful place to walk along the ocean boardwalk and smell the salt-sea air, listen to the sea gulls, watch children playing soccer, watch countless divers, snorkelers, and fisherman moving about in the ocean, and best of all, watch the wonderfully entertaining sea lions.
When considering a room in La Valencia, as with any historic hotel, make certain to discuss your room’s dimensions, and in particular, the room’s view. Rooms at La Valencia range from 250 sq. ft. street front rooms, to massive suites overlooking the ocean. You will want to be certain that you get the best view that your budget will allow.
The La Valencia Hotel is a most enchanting place. I highly recommend that you give their link a click and poke around their website. But most of all, if you find yourself headed towards Southern California, we highly recommend that you give them a visit for yourself.
We highly recommend the La Valencia Hotel.
