This is a charming classy boutique hotel. It was a welcome change from the sameness of chain hotels. It has one of the best location in La Jolla with nature and ocean facing rooms one one side and the vibrant life of La Jolla on the other. I could not be more happy to have decided to stay here.
But that's not what made us 'wow'. It was the staff at this hotel that made the biggest difference.
The front desk was very helpful and not just trying to push their own agenda like most chain hotels do. Their recommendations of walks, places to visit, have a coffee or lunch were spot on. This place is beautiful and through the instructions of the front desk we could enjoy it more.
But it does not stop here.
We were wondering around the pool area when we talked to the gardener. He showed us the other side of the hotel with new additions and rooms. Then asked if we need any help and thanked for staying with them. This kind of explains the culture that this hotel management maintains on the property. Kudos to them.
Please do yourself a favor and stay at this place.
The Grande Colonial is a lovely hotel. I loved my room in the main hotel. (I did stay on a prior visit in an old apartment, I did not like it as much.
This visit I stayed in the main building. It was BEAUTIFUL. It was clean. Well decorated. Loved my stay
