Empress Hotel's crisp décor and high level of service guarantee an easeful stay. The location—a couple of blocks from the restaurants and shops of Prospect Street and the ocean—is perfect for making the most of La Jolla.
Guest rooms are modern and stylish, with mini-refrigerators and high-quality mattresses. Ask for a room on a higher floor for a view of the ocean. For unwinding after a long day of work—or surfing—opt for an in-room massage. The Complimentary breakfast is substantial (expect waffles, hard-boiled eggs, fresh pastries, fruit and yogurt) and can be enjoyed on the sundeck.
Relaxed, beachy vibe, high-end service
