The affluent seaside community of La Jolla is a quintessential California town. Filled with sunny days and coastal views, this San Diego neighborhood has everything from surfing to seals to shopping. The Empress Hotel La Jolla offers comfortable accommodations within walking distance of the beach, shops and eateries of the tony town.
The five-story building has retro charm from the outside, with the name emblazoned in throwback script at the top of the beige and white striped building. Inside, the hotel has an up-to-date décor emphasizing the proximity to the Pacific with shades of sand and teal. Framed photographs of seaside vistas can be found throughout. All rooms have a mini-fridge and microwave, and Wi-Fi is included in the nightly rate.
Just a two-minute walk from the hotel brings you to the middle of Prospect Street lined with art galleries, boutiques and cafes. The Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego’s La Jolla outpost is also here, and modern art lovers could spend a day marveling at the collections and exhibits.
If it's views of Mother Nature you’re after, a less-than-15-minute stroll brings you to the craggy shoreline of La Jolla Cove, a popular spot for seals and sea lions to splash and play in their natural environment.
The hotel's Manhattan Restaurant of La Jolla serves up traditional Italian fare and is available for room service.
