Smack dab in precious La Jolla village, this yellow hotel is an icon. Its signature restaurant, Nine-Ten, is one of the city’s finest.



The casual, understated elegance of the Grande Colonial hotel... lies somewhere between the buttoned-up La Valencia and the chic Hotel Parisi.

If it's prime Pacific views you're after, ask for an ocean-facing room on the upper floors of the main hotel.

Elegantly appointed rooms are in keeping with the hotel’s European ambience.

Star Service Tick 4

Located in the heart of town, an easy walk to the Museum of Modern Art and the Cove, this updated Teddy Roosevelt-era treasure built in 1913 is an area landmark, and not just for history buffs Full review →

Any rooms with a water view is a safe bet, though the corner units are worth requesting.

The Telegraph 8.0

Close to La Jolla’s pristine shores, beneath stalk-skinny palm trees, sits the Grande Colonial, a classic, European-style hotel dating back to 1913. Full review →
