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 elegant; most suites have balconies and whirlpool tubs. The personal attention provided by the staff, as well as the plush robes and grand bathrooms, guarantee a pleasurable stay. The hotel sits amid the shops and restaurants of La Jolla village. Be sure to have a cocktail while gazing
at the ocean in Le Sala Lobby Lounge, and stroll the tiered gardens in back.
