About
Description
La Valencia Hotel & Spa exudes Hollywood Glamor on the California Rivera – a hospitality classic since 1926. With her signature pink exterior and iconic tower, the elegant “Pink Lady” remains a renowned landmark on La More Jolla’s distinctive Prospect Street commanding the village bluffs with panoramic views of the Pacific coastline and beautiful La Jolla Cove. 114 rooms, suites and villas offer a cast of options from cozy boudoirs to a captivating penthouse or exclusive villas and soon, the transformation of a circa 1905 ocean facing bungalow into an enchanting 3,500 sq. ft. sensory experience spa and garden ready for a red-carpet-worthy premiere in early 2018. Culinary indulgence takes center stage at THE MED, the hotel’s inspired Great Room design, ocean facing restaurant and terrace featuring seasonal California coastal cuisine. The supporting cast features La Sala, a sumptuous and dazzling Spanish-Mediterranean style lounge cast in the tradition of grand hotel bars with a cliffhanger Less
