It’s easy to see why Hollywood celebrities, European royalty and coastal elites throughout the ages have flocked to La Valencia in La Jolla for decades.
The property exudes warmth and an immediate sense of being well-cared for. Alternatively known as the Pink Lady, the 90-year-old grand dame on bustling Prospect Street greets all who enter with an immediate, seemingly infinite view of the Pacific Ocean.
Not allowing time to stand still, the ever-evolving decor infuses modern wall art with Spanish and Mediterranean
tiles in most public spaces. To the right, French village and country scenes in Cafe la Rue set off the trendy, horseshoe- shaped bar for a casual dining and watering-hole experience. Further inside, refurbished original hand-painted ceilings are complemented with chic new creations, serving an eclectic fusion of vintage and modern motifs. And the creme de la creme? A floor to ceiling window with nothing but sea to feast your eyes upon, with the fragrance of salt air penetrating the nostrils... And that’s just the lobby!
Several event spaces continue the historical synthesis of art deco with modern flourishes. This includes the latest in scrumptious cuisine creations by executive chef Alex Emery. Between the fresh air Ocean View Terrace, the refurbished MED restaurant with patio seating streetside, and the impeccable sea- view bookending the great room, banquets and wedding receptions have become hot commodities, along with numerous other hotel-sponsored events. In fact, when La
Valencia turned 90 last year, it celebrated in grand style with decade-themed parties showcasing both its history and decor.
