A $4 million investment transformed this property, with an emphasis on design at the root of the renovation. The lobby, pool deck and lounge, meeting space, and fitness center were all part of the extensive renovation. Guestrooms and landscaping were also updated.
Owned by Westport Capital Partners and Cove Equity Group, LLC and designed by Gulla Jonsdottir and Claude-Anthony Marengo, Hotel La Jolla offers 110 guestrooms, each with a patio or balcony. Guests have a choice of a deluxe king or queen room or one of four 900-square-foot apartment-style luxury suites, complete with flat panel TVs, Frette linens, Bigelow bath products, and Kimpton’s signature animal-print robes.
The new lobby includes a new ground-floor venue, Hiatus, which offers 2,000 square feet of open-air space, complete with fire pits, chaise lounges, and a bar.
The dramatic changes also include the reinvention of the 11th-floor restaurant, Cusp Dining & Drinks, led by Executive Chef Donald Lockhart. The hotel also features a new 11th-floor event space with more than 950 square feet.
“We are thrilled that the time is finally here for us to share this magnificent new hotel and all of its exceptional amenities with our guests and the local community,” said Caroline Dyal, general manager for Hotel La Jolla, in an announcement. “Our goal is to make our guests’ experience special and I know we have just the place and the team to make that happen.”
Additionally, there is a new fitness center, complete with workout equipment, hula-hoops and yoga mats and a business center.
