“Though first-time visitors in La Jolla gravitate toward the more famous La Valencia, second-timers of pick this thoughtfully restored 1913 inn in a relatively quiet section of La Jolla’s main street. Each rooms is different.”

Telegraph review:

“This charming seaside hotel, one block from pretty La Jolla Cove and dating back to 1913, sits in the heart of one of San Diego’s smartest neighbourhoods. Combining historic grandeur with luxurious modern comfort, and having recently undergone an extensive revamp, it’s a prime spot to explore the charm of La Jolla.”
