Overview

Hotel has 10 acres of manicured gardens
Property is a bit removed from central San Diego
The Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa can easily be judged by its cover: The hacienda-style property sits on 10 acres of well-manicured gardens. The hotel's 210 rooms keep up luxury appearances, boasting Turkish cotton linens and private furnished balconies. Recent travelers describe this La Jolla hotel as "stunning" and praised the in-house spa for its long list of treatments and additional facilities, such as the Eucalyptus steam room and the outdoor saltwater whirlpool. Mustangs & Burros treats diners to savory Southwestern cuisine, and the Trinitas Cellars Wine Bar makes a great spot for an evening drink. The hotel is a 15-mile drive northwest of downtown San Diego, so it may not be the best choice for sightseers.
