The La Valencia Hotel in La Jolla California stands majestically above one of the world's most beautiful coves. La Jolla (pronounced Lah Hoy ah) means "The Jewel" in Spanish. The La Valencia lives up to the towns beautiful setting. It is a fantastic historic building. It has a plush three story lobby (recently coverted to a restaurant) that has an impressive view overlooking the La Jolla Cove. From 100 plus feet above the spectacular cove, the view is breathtaking; especially enjoyable with a fine wine, a great meal, and a gorgeous California sunset. Houses in this area start at over $1,000,000 for a small one bedroom. La Jolla is the north part of San Diego's coastline.
Besides spectacular beaches, ocean chisled cliffs, dramtic caves, and verdant beachfront parks, the shopping and restaurants are world class. Bring a lot of money and you can buy a masterpiece at a local art gallery. Some of the coffee shops are renowned for meeting top educators from UCSD and top business people from all over the world. Have a great time at the La Valencia.
