Pros: Big city atmosphere in a small town. Classy
Cons: Breakfast available at 0630. I had to leave by 0615 each morning for work and was unable to enter the breakfast room even for a cup of coffee.

Really comfortable beds with very nice linens. Nice thick bath towels and robes. Excellent, very professional staff. The restaurant is fantastic. The veal chop is the finest you will have anywhere. The location is perfect, central to all that is happening. It is exceptionally clean. The continental breakfast is nice and provides something for everyone, from hard-boiled eggs and yogurt to pastries, bagels, cereals and fruit. Overall, this is the best bargain for La Jolla---you get a lot per dollar!
Pros: The staff was amazing. Ben, at the front desk, was incredibly kind and helpful with excellent recommendations. Even the room service staff was superior!
Cons: I liked everything.

Very organized, good service, staff answers any of your questions, a very continental breakfast, no pool, but who goes swimming in the winter anyway?!
Pros: Location, right in the center of downtown La Jolla. Easy to walk around the shops and to the beach area.
Cons: Parking is at a premium. Costs $18.00 per day for valet. Not a problem if one is staying a night or two, but a week might be a cost issue!
