Amidst the pristine beaches and regal bluffs of Southern California’s most beautiful coastal village, the Grande Colonial hotel has been welcoming guests to La Jolla since 1913. Completely modernized, yet faithful to its storied past, this intimate boutique hotel harkens back to a quieter, more dignified era, when travel meant something special and personalized guest service was a hallmark of every stay.
Relax, breathe deeply and find gentle repose in an ambiance best described as classic-sophistication-meets-California-casual. Bathed in gorgeous San Diego weather and brilliant sunshine throughout the year, with views of the Pacific coastline, this architectural gem is a study in timeless craftsmanship and décor.
The Grande Colonial hotel features a five-story main building and three adjacent private buildings, all encompassing guest rooms and suites updated with every contemporary comfort. Also offered are 5,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor event space - most with ocean views - for weddings, meetings and special events. Our award-winning ZAGAT-rated NINE-TEN Restaurant is a La Jolla dining landmark - boasting nationally acclaimed chefs, "Evolving California Cuisine" and a Wine Spectator-recognized wine list.
There are endless things to do in San Diego. Find yourself just steps away from all the best of La Jolla, named by Travel & Leisure as one of America's Favorite Beach Towns. Miles of lovely beaches abound including La Jolla Cove, the Children's Pool (named by TripAdvisor as one of the "Top 10 Wonderfully Unique Beaches" in the world), La Jolla Shores, Windansea Beach and Blacks Beach. Tee off on the legendary Torrey Pines Golf Course or experience the stunning natural beauty of Torrey Pines State Park on an afternoon hike. Peruse the high-end galleries and boutiques of downtown La Jolla, or explore the tranquil seaside coves, communing with wild harbor seals basking on the sands.
For unforgettable family vacations, romantic weekend getaways or supremely relaxing executive trips, the Grande Colonial hotel offers an elegant gateway to just the La Jolla you came to see.
