One of my favorite landmarks in La Jolla is La Valencia Hotel on Prospect Street. It reminds me of old hotels in movies from the forties.
The hotel opened in 1926 and is nicknamed the “Pink Lady.”
Standing in the lobby, you can see a plate glass window at the other end. It overlooks La Jolla Cove with this view:
At the front of the hotel, there’s a patio with lots of plants and tables. A great place for Sunday brunch. . . .
One of my Flickr contacts commented that her parents honeymooned at the hotel during World War II. So romantic.
