Empress Hotel of La Jolla - A Greystone Hotel
Excellent facilities in all aspects. Helpful staff. Parking tends to be on the road. Room was very clean and had all the necessary toiletries. Would definitely recommend and would be very happy to return.

Empress Hotel of La Jolla - A Greystone Hotel
A great hotel with excellent service in a lovely neighbourhood. Ryan at reception was outstanding - he produced a scenic drive (from google)from La Jolla down into San Diego seapoint ensuring we took in all the sights, monuments etc - places we would have missed - he also helped us with car parking advice so we never had to pay for parking - thank you so much Ryan. The hotel provided free fruit and cookies at reception and all day tea/coffee in the breakfast room which has a pleasant terrace. Only downside was that the majority of the restaurants in the area closed at 9pm and unless you got there early it was difficult to get seating. 10 minute walk to the beach where you could see sea lions basking in the sun
