Fodor's Review

This pink Spanish-Mediterranean confection drew Hollywood film stars in the 1930s and '40s with its setting and views of La Jolla Cove; now it draws the Kardashians. Rooms are small but handsome; most suites have balconies and Frette linens. The personal attention provided by the staff, as well as the plush robes and grand bathrooms, guarantee a pleasurable stay. In 2014, the hotel refurbished its restaurant, THE MED, which offers patio and dining room seating. Other La Jolla establishments are steps away, but be sure to have a cocktail while gazing at the ocean in Le Sala Lobby Lounge, an elegant space with live music Wednesday through Sunday.
