San Diego is one of the most incredible regions in California. If you love beaches and quieter places, perfect for relaxing, you can now add the city to your travel wishlist! Despite having been there for a short time, I loved having known all the places I visited. In fact, you can see our tour’s itinerary by clicking here.
As you already know, Paulo and I always give preference to boutique hotels when choosing our accommodations. However, in San Diego and La Jolla, this type of hotel is not so common. Still, I separated some of our favorites to help you when choosing where to stay 😉
With only 44 rooms, Tower 23 is a hotel on the sand, you know? Just go down a few flights of stairs and you will already find the wonderful sea in front of you. His architecture is super modern and the outdoor area is one of his strong points, mainly because of the pool located in front of the sea.
Although the decor of the rooms is simpler and without many touches of authenticity, they are super comfortable. They are very minimalist and cozy accommodations. The restaurant is also great, with seafood dishes being the customers’ favorite!
KIMPTON HOTEL PALOMAR SAN DIEGO
Even though it is not small, the Hotel Palomar has all the other features to be considered a boutique hotel. The decoration of the rooms and the outside areas are modern and original. Even the bathroom in the accommodations is incredible, especially those with a bathtub.
In addition to being a comfortable hotel, its location is ideal for those who like to stroll around the accommodation region. It is less than 10 minutes away from Gaslamp, a very busy area of San Diego. In this part of the city you will find a bit of everything: bars and restaurants, art galleries and various cultural events. The beach is a little further away, but nothing that a few minutes of walking will not solve 🙂
Grande Colonial La Jbe
La Jolla is one of the most sought after areas for people traveling to San Diego. Taking this into account, it is a good idea to stay there if you are one of those tourists, right? The Grande Colonial La Jolla is one of the best places to stay there, both for its location and for the comfort of the hotel.
All rooms and outdoor areas have a more classic decor and all this traditional style was not chosen without a reason. The hotel has been in existence since 1973, so many people consider the building to be a historic site. It is a great option for those who enjoy this type of environment!
Another wonderful hotel for those who choose to stay in La Jolla is La Valencia. It is surrounded by flowers and trees that make the environment stunning. His decor is super charming, especially because of the vintage touches of ornaments and furniture. The hotel has existed since 1926 and has since been one of the most frequented in the region.
Its location is perfect for those looking for a more intimate environment and away from a lot of excitement. Ah, for a 180 ° view of La Jolla Cove just go to the small restaurant on the tenth floor of the hotel. You will feel privileged to be in a place as beautiful as this 🙂
Andaz San Diego
Andaz San Diego has different room types and each one has a different decoration. The most expensive accommodations end up having a more innovative and authentic design. Despite this, all rooms, including the simplest ones, are super spacious and pleasant.
The hotel’s restaurant, The Rooftop by STK, is at the top of the building, offering guests an incredible view of the city. Take advantage of the sunset time to go to the rooftop to have a few drinks and enjoy the view.
Pendry San Diego
Also located in the Gaslamp area, Pendry San Diego is synonymous with elegance. The hotel’s small details make the environments unique and special – from the industrial-style lights hanging from one of the restaurants to the tiles in the bathrooms in each room.
For those who love to eat inside the hotel, options abound. They have six restaurants and bars, each of which has a different proposal. These environments are also open to those who are not guests. That is, even if you don’t stay there, you will have the opportunity to enjoy a wonderful dinner there.
