A stay at a sleek hotel in a sunny seaside San Diego neighborhood, with a discount on parking

The Lowdown

With its modern style and bright color palette, the recently renovated
San Diego Marriott La Jolla offers a delightful property in the city’s
Golden Triangle, to match the famously sunny disposition. At these
TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence-winning digs, you’ll find a
fitness center, so you can get in your best shape for the pool and
beach. Then you can hit the two: The hotel has its own outdoor pool, and
the La Jolla beach is just minutes away.
It wouldn’t be a day in
the sun without fun to match, so make the switch from padding your
flip-flops over San Diego’s sidewalks to cruising the city streets, and
drive to all the famous sights nearby. Spend the day exploring the
nearby La Jolla Coves or visiting the Scripps Aquarium, or stay on dry
land, hiking at Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve, catching a show at
Balboa Park and shopping in downtown La Jolla. After dark, the hotel’s
bar turns into a salsa club or billiards hall, while locals take to the
surrounding bars and restaurants.


Accommodations at the San Diego Marriott La Jolla boast plush
bedding, marble bathrooms and modern amenities. You’ll have 350 square
feet, with either a king, queen or two double beds – plus a chair
with an ottoman and a work desk with its own ergonomic seating.


fresh, local ingredients at the newly redesigned Amuse, which serves up
California fare in the open air. Get your breakfast fix at Fresh, where
you’ll have your choice of buffet or à la carte options. There’s also
La Jolla Social, Marriott’s restaurant and lounge, offering dinner and
light bites, plus entertainment, including billiards and salsa dancing.


located in beautiful La Jolla, California, the San Diego Marriott La
Jolla offers access to sights, both natural and touristic. Stroll along
the beach, wander the renowned nearby Sea Caves, and go hiking at Torrey
Pines State Natural Reserve. You can also check out the San Diego Zoo,
just 20 minutes away, and Legoland, Seaworld and the Birch Aquarium are
all in the area, as well.

Fantastic place. Saw sealions all sunbathing on rocks with their babies. Watched a fantastic sunset. Lovely shops and restaurants. Well worth a visit. San diego is fab loads to see and do. Also went to san francisco one of my favourite cities. Did two days in L.A was ok if i am honest was a little tacky. But the conservatory is worth a vist with fantastic views. We had dinner on the Queen Mary which was a fantastic experience.

Nice Hotel, pool was lacking!

We had a great room and a good location, only about 15 minutes from La Jolla sea lions, restaurants, etc.. the bar was great, the pool not so much! It’s small and secluded. You can walk to a great shopping center!!

Overall happy with my stay

I received a great rate with same day booking. I arrived earlier than I was supposed to arrive for check in (3 hours early) and they were able to accommodate me and check me into my room at that time which was very appreciated! Location is conveniently located next to a higher end mall. I wish it was a little closer to the beach but an uber ride to La Jolla beach was $10 bucks so not too bad. Rooms were clean and friendly staff at check in. I did not eat or drink while on property. The only criticism I had was that the pool was a little small for the size of the hotel.

Basic Marriott in a rather dull area
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Although the hotel is in La Jolla, it is actually quite a way (say about 3-4km) away from the sea which is a bit of a shame but the hotel gives you what you would expect from a Marriott. The service at Marriott hotels I always find to be good and this is no exception.

The surroundings are not that exciting. The hotel is close to the huge Westfield UTC mall which means you are never short of food and shopping alternatives at least but the area in general is dotted with anonymous bank and residential buldings.

I attended meetings held in the business area of the hotel and there was nothing to complain about - nice big meeting rooms and good internet access.

Still waiting for my beers

Staying in the hotel as i write this . Ordered 2 beers . 45 mins and counting . Be prepared to spend 30 bucks for the parking . Executive lounge charges for the beer and wine . Had to ask for the room upgrade as a gold member instead of just getting it .
