Situated in the seaside Village of La Jolla, just 15 minutes north of downtown San Diego, the Four Diamond Grande Colonial 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 over 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.
Continually updated over the past century and boasting AAA's four-diamond designation, the property hosts meetings and events for up to 120 people. Over 2,300 square feet of indoor space and nearly 3,000 square feet of outdoor space (some with ocean views) beckons those seeking the intimacy and personalized service of a boutique hotel. From executive board retreats for 8 to meetings for 60 and receptions for 120, the Grande Colonial provides an ideal venue for meetings and special events in La Jolla. Also available is an ocean-view rooftop deck and board room for those staying in select suites.
Guests can relax in 93 luxurious accommodations, featuring ocean, garden or Village views. A collection of 1- and 2-bedroom suites features full kitchens and fireplaces ideal for extended stays, business retreats and executive hospitality. All rooms and suites feature complimentary Internet access, HD televisions with a full HD channel lineup including HBO and Keurig Single Serving Coffee Makers.
Guests can count on a memorable dinner from room service, a catered dinner party or the lively social scene at the hotel's signature dining room, NINE-TEN Restaurant, led by nationally-acclaimed chef Jason Knibb (named San Diego's Chef of the Year) and Pastry Chef Jose Alonzo III. A leading light in the local farm-to-table movement - and always on the cutting edge - the restaurant enjoys being in the Top 10 on TripAdvisor out of all La Jolla restaurants, as well as a "very good to excellent" rating from Zagat.
Unique meeting venues filled with natural light. Accommodations combining the comforts of home with the latest technology. A world-class location. Award-winning cuisine.
