Experience Tradition in a World-class Destination
Situated in the seaside Village of La Jolla, just 15 minutes north of downtown San Diego, the Grande Colonial is the only Four Diamond hotel in the Village, and offers classic European styling in the intimate setting of a boutique hotel.
For more than a century, the Grande Colonial has been one of the most esteemed hotels in San Diego. But beyond the turn of the century architecture, our true hallmark is our warm, friendly staff and gracious service. We take pride in preserving the heritage laid down by our founders more than 100 years ago by providing the finest experience in first class accommodations. And just as those founders envisioned in 1913, the Grande Colonial remains today a classic hotel that rivals anything in the West.
The Jewel of Hospitality
Commanding views of the California coastline, the Grande Colonial overlooks the shores of the Pacific Ocean and is ideally located just steps away from miles of beautiful beaches renowned to Southern California. Within walking distance are world-class shopping, dining, and entertainment and within a short drive are an abundance of golf, recreation and visitor attractions.
The hotel features 97 air-conditioned, non-smoking guest rooms and suites (some with fully-equipped kitchens and fireplaces). Complimentary wired and wireless high-speed Internet access is also available in each of the guest rooms and suites and throughout all public spaces.
Over 5,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor, ocean-view meeting and special event space beckons those groups seeking the intimacy and personalized service of a boutique property - all against a backdrop of La Jolla's ocean vistas.
A heated outdoor pool, valet parking, bicycle rentals, complimentary bottled water, Keurig Single Serving Coffee Makers, plush bathrobes and evening turndown service are just a few of the luxuries guests will enjoy.
On-site is the acclaimed NINE-TEN Restaurant, offering the wonderful combination of sophistication and casual elegance. Led by Chef Jason Knibb and Pastry Chef Jose Alonzo III, the restaurant's Evolving California Cuisine features the best of the harvest from local artisan farmers where produce is selected daily. Recognized as Michelin "Plate Distinction", and by ZAGAT as "exceptional to extraordinary," NINE-TEN also boasts a Wine Spectator-awarded wine list. Breakfast and lunch are served daily and dinner is served nightly. Weekend Brunch is also featured.
With its ideal location, gracious service and environment of extraordinary comfort, the Grande Colonial hotel provides the ideal destination for travelers to La Jolla.
