The Empress Hotel of La Jolla Review

: Close enough to the La Jolla’s beaches, shops, galleries and restaurants, but not on the main drag, the moderately priced Empress Hotel offers the best of both worlds. The 73 guest rooms are decorated in neutral earth tones and feature 27-inch flat-screen TVs, plush bathrobes and comfortable beds; suites offer bathtub Jacuzzis. The complimentary continental breakfast is served on the sundeck each morning. For a retro atmosphere and classic Italian cuisine, head downstairs to the romantic Manhattan's of La Jolla. Frequented by many business travelers, the hotel offers conference rooms that seat 35, catered meals and the latest in audio/visual equipment.
