Sales Manager (Former Employee) – La Jolla, CA – January 5, 2018
This is a wonderful place to work, beautiful hotel and location. Lots of freedom and creative thinking. This is a great place to work if you like working as a team. There are so many places that could be worse.
Pastry Cook (Former Employee) – La Jolla, CA – August 11, 2017
La Valencia is a beautiful 90 year old historic hotel in the heart of La Jolla, Ca. There are two restaurants on the property with an amazing menu from fine dinning to casual eats. Its walking distant to the gorgeous cove and many other shops in the general area. Great place to vacation, or stop in for a luxurious dinner or drinks with your partner. Friendly and warm environment.
Beautiful location to work, with La Jolla cove right behind the hotel and various shops and restaurants all close by
Reservations Agent (Current Employee) – La Jolla, CA – June 2, 2014
This was a wonderful experience, probably some of the best Managers I have ever worked with. The work environment was very comfortable, always saw my co workers with smiles and laughing. Communication is key in a work place, and La Valencia had a strong knack for this.
Management constantly changing, Micromanaged by Corporate Office

Houseman (Current Employee) – La Jolla, CA – November 15, 2012
First, I come in for a team meeting to review the event(s) going on in the hotel and assignments are delegated by the management. I have l learned that presentation is key to pulling off a successful event. My co-workers and myself have an understanding that we are all part of a team so we do our best to help each other out when someone is too busy or cannot perform certain tasks well due to physical limitations.
Valet/Bell Department (Former Employee) – La Jolla, CA – September 8, 2012
We would handle parking and luggage assistance for guests of this very nice hotel. I learned alot about the difference between 5-star service and average service for guests. The management was made of people who genuinly liked thier jobs and definitely cared about the people who work there. My co-workers were all great as well. The hardest part of the job was dealing with fussy hotel guests during winter storms. Many of them expected perfect weather all the time since the hotel is located in coastal southern California. The best part of the job was definitelt the people I worked with.
Great ambiance, poor management under the previous ownership
Server (Former Employee) – Village of La Jolla, CA – December 12, 2011
The La Valencia Resort in the village of La Jolla is a landmark, beautifully presented and on prime ocean front property. Although the Hotel has changed ownership since being employed there and has been rewarded better service reviews since. I believe the management under the last ownership was unorganized and less attentive to the customers point of view. Yet the ambiance and mood was always a motivation. In addition, the financial reward for being well known and liked as a social and genuine service provider was very motivating.
high end, variety of service needs, ambiance, tips.
