Architect – Reginald Johnson, 1926
La Valencia is a magnet that attracts visitors from all over the world. Not only does it have an incredible spa, several dining options and awe-inspiring views; its architecture is incredibly unique.
For over nine decades, La Jolla’s Pink Lady has elegantly graced the seaside bluffs in the heart of the Village. The architect conceived a Mediterranean palace of pink stucco and terracotta tile, overlooking lush, terraced gardens and the sea beyond. Exquisite details are throughout the property, including mosaic fountains, Spanish tiled steps, hand-painted ceilings, and elaborate ironwork. Over the years, this storied hotel has served as a hideaway for Hollywood luminaries, from Chaplin to Pickford to Garbo. Irving Gill’s adjacent Hotel Cabrillo was integrated as the west wing of the hotel in 1956.
