The travel to San Diego by plane was an absolute nightmare! Canceled flights and lost luggage is never a way to start a much needed vacation. To say the very least, I was not in the best of moods upon arrival. Your friendly valets first greeted me; but it was not until check- in when my mood subsided. Front desk...

Thanks Hamilton S! While holidays like the 4th of July are meant to be uber fantastic and relaxing, the travel part can be so frustrating right?!?! I am so happy Diana and the rest of the team didn't disappoint once you finally made it here. Thanks for staying with us and we'll hopefully see you again in the future.

Hotel staff is very nice and friendly. Rooms with balcony and view of the ocean are my favorite. I HATE that there is no coffee maker in the room. I like to wake up and have coffee without getting dressed and going to the lobby. Makes me very cranky especially when I'm stressed about getting to work meetings. I didn't...

Hi Cathy N, Yikes, three stars for no coffee makes us sad. Even more so that if you just ask us for coffee in your room we can make that happen. But we are happy to now know because we understand there are guests who simply just want coffee before they see anyone or anything in the morning. So we...

I stayed here with my wife for a couple of days. We had a great time. Its a modern hotel with a very nice view. The location in La Jolla is, good. They also have a free shuttle to nearby areas as well as complimentary bikes. The pool is nothing to brag about, however, it makes more sense to go...

A beautiful modern hotel with super friendly staff. Within walking distance of the beach and the town - or you can take the shuttle service offered by the hotel. A pretty but small pool, clean rooms, happy hour and lovely property make this a great option. If you haven't been to La Jolla, you need to visit. One of the...

I had to attend a conference at the University of San Diego and chose to stay here because I am a Kimpton fan and it looked like a short drive away. Glad I did! It seems the Kimpton folks bought this about three years ago and they did a wonderful job renovating. You can tell from the outside that it...

Nicely modern hotel with very pleasant front desk staff. Kimptons allow pets, but we were never disturbed. Housekeeping a bit suspect as a different amount of towels were brought daily and cleansing supplies not replenished daily. Room was clean with a nice view. Must have a meal at the 11th floor restaurant which has a great view of the ocean...

Thanks Lea32_11! Great review after a great stay with us. Our wines we choose for wine hour actually have a little bit of a story behind them, our Master Sommelier who coincidentally has the last name Wines, chooses our wines based on winemakers who are either environmentally sound or are philanthropic in nature.

This is the 4th Kimpton I've stayed at and was not quite up to the level of elegance of the others. 1 problem is that the location is near a busy road with gas station and Subway sub shop. It's a bit of a walk to the beach from here -- 1 km. Valet parking is expensive and unnecessary --...

Hi neur14, We appreciate the feedback and understand that we are not like every other Kimpton but that is what makes Kimpton special. Each of our properties are a bit different but our service is what separates us from the rest in our opinion. While we may be less than a 10 minute walk to the beach the ocean views...
