About Grande Colonial Hotel, San Diego

Value for money
The hotel is ideally situated in the seaside village of La Jolla, California. The hotel is a historic beauty that honours its traditions yet offers contemporary amenities and services. Built in 1913 as an apartment hotel, the establishment was a trailblazer in its day. Its original white wood-framed building was the first lodging facility in downtown La Jolla, and saw today's tourist town grow around it. Just steps from lovely beaches along with interesting eateries and world-class shopping, the hotel has played an integral role in the community for nearly a century. A laundry service is available on site for a fee. The hotel features newly renovated air- conditioned, non-smoking guest rooms and suites (some with fully equipped kitchens and fireplaces). The hotel offers 465 m² of indoor and outdoor event space (most with ocean views), accommodating up to 120 guests for weddings, meetings and other special events.
