Grande Colonial La Jolla: A Community Landmark

Listed on The Registry of Historic Hotels of America, the Grande Colonial is La Jolla’s oldest operating hotel. One hundred years ago it was a bit smaller and perhaps less formal, but just like La Jolla, the Grande Colonial grew in size and stature over the years. It is now an elegant and lively seaside hotel with a style all its own.
