4.5 out of 5. Based on 443 guest reviews , Very Good

Property Description

Situated along the California coast just north of San Diego, in the heart of the picturesque village of La Jolla, the intimate, boutique style Empress Hotel attracts both the leisure and the business traveler, offering a convenient location, inviting accommodations, a wealth of amenities and exceptionally friendly service. From the touch of sophisticated European elegance in its décor to the welcoming staff, the Empress experience is truly unique and memorable. Guests begin their day in a garden setting on the sundeck, waking up to a complimentary deluxe continental breakfast. In addition, complimentary use of the sauna, Jacuzzi, fitness room, business center, and free in-room wireless internet access give the guest options without concern of the charges. Getting around town is remarkably easy. Within a short walk from the hotel, guests will enjoy the multitude of tempting restaurants, alluring shops, fine art galleries and museums, many of which overlook the Pacific Ocean and La Jolla Cove beaches. With Torrey Pines biotech and medical research facilities only 4 miles away, the corporate traveler has easy access to a productive day’s work just minutes from the hotel. In the evening, guests may opt to relax over dinner at the hotel in award-winning Manhattan, voted as one of La Jolla’s most romantic Italian restaurants, or just enjoy a nightcap by the fireplace in Manhattan’s lounge, listening to a local jazz trio. After a long day out walking the beaches, seeing the sights or attending a seminar, the Empress of La Jolla is a perfect getaway, and for some, a home away from home.
