Lonely Planet review

Publicity stills of Lon Cheney, Lillian Gish and Greta Garbo line the hallways of this 1926 landmark: pink-walled, Mediterranean-style and designed by William Templeton Johnson. Among its 112 rooms, those in the main building are rather compact, but villas are spacious, and in any case the property wins for Old Hollywood romance.

Even if you don’t stay, consider lifting a toast – and a pinkie – to the sunset from its Spanish Revival lounge, La Sala. Parking is $29.

Our independent authors have visited La Valencia Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in La Jolla.
