Fabulous 8.8 From 487 reviews

La Valencia Hotel
Enjoyed stay
Very relaxing hotel with great staff. Rooms on small side but location, decor and maintenance is excellent. Pool and staff there made it very relaxing.

Very Good8.0
First off it is really irritating when a hotel charges you a resort fee (no matter what the price) and then proceeds to have private events in common areas such as the pool, and lounge, then the guests are unable to use the facilities that a resort fee was paid on... furthermore even when there is no resort fee if common areas are listed as amenities they should be available to the guests as. Otherwise the service was not that great, the staff was less than friendly and barely helpful. The hotel is very nice and the room was comfortable. The small wouldn't have been so bad if we felt comfortable in the common areas. As was stated the areas were closed off but to private events so when we wanted to relax in the lounge and it was closed we went to the restaurant and they directed us to the lounge we said it is set for a private party, and the reluctantly seated us in a terrible spot even though they were not busy.

Great spot
Great location, beautiful hotel. Staff was very friendly. Only complaint was the carpet in our room needs replacing, not acceptable for a hotel if this calibre. I also got a restaurant charge that wasn’t mine but didn’t realize it until a couple of days after I left. My fault for not checking statement closely enough. Would definitely be back.

Nice Hotel, Some Room for Improvement
Overall we had a nice stay at la Valencia. I would recommend requesting a room in the main building, however (the number of rooms with two beds is limited...only a few in main building, evidently). We were in a separate building with a VERY small elevator, and although it was across the courtyard from the main building, it wasn't terribly convenient. The restaurant and pool area has great views, but in our estimation, the food was mediocre. Nice lobby/common areas available to guests for reading or simply enjoying the view. Guest room bathrooms have nice amount of natural light, and rooms are reasonably well appointed. No tub (only a shower) in our room, and no upgrade offered upon check-in (they did not seem fully occupied, but evidently they were). Climate control in rooms not the best---was tough to get the temperature in the room below 68 degrees, likely due to somewhat outdated AC/heater. Front desk staff seemed a bit aloof. Valet and luggage assistance staff were great.
