La Jolla’s very own Pink Lady” caught at dusk with holiday lights already shimmering.
The hotel changed hands in 2011 and now the renovations to the entrance are complete. The original Whaling bar has also undergone a completed transformation and is due for a grand re-opening very shortly.
Plans have also been approved just last week for the new Cafe La Rue to expand out onto the sidewalk for a more “European experience”, although the hotel will have to repave the area in front of the building (in front of the 2 arched windows to the right) in order to pull it off.
To complete the picture for the holidays, right across the street from La Valencia is a really beautiful tree fashioned form dozens of poinsettias – very festive!
