A classy hotel in La Jolla, ideal for families, couples, foodies and adventure lovers.
Right down the street from La Valencia, The Grande Colonial La Jolla is just as charming with more spacious guest rooms and finer dining. The lobby boasts European elegance while many accommodations have a Caribbean-themed décor that includes white woodwork, tropical colors and paddle-style ceiling fans. Amenities such as goose-down comforters, wireless high-speed Internet access, plush robes, Gilchrist & Soames bath products and turn-down service make a stay here all the more relaxing and luxurious. Don't miss NINE-TEN restaurant --- one of San Diego's most exciting dining venues --- where talented chef Jason Knibb utilizes the region's bounty of seasonal produce, artisan cheeses and free-range meats. Along with the cuisine, the modern design and friendly staff makes for a memorable meal. The hotel has a heated swimming pool and is just steps away from the La Jolla Cove beach, shopping, health clubs and restaurants of every type. At 100 years old, the hotel has an intriguing history and even a few friendly ghosts.
