Welcome To La Jolla

decorative content divider
Amidst the pristine beaches and regal bluffs of Southern California’s most beautiful coastal village, the Grande Colonial hotel has been welcoming guests to La Jolla since 1913. Completely modernized, yet faithful to its storied past, this intimate boutique hotel hearkens back to a quieter, more dignified era, when travel meant something special and personalized guest service was a hallmark of every stay.
