Gold Estancia La Jolla Hotel and Spa

San Diego, CA 92037
858-550-1000websitePrice: Expensive
Area: La Jolla/Torrey Pines

With Southern California's healthy supply of sand and sun properties, Estancia refreshingly breaks this mold. The former family equestrian ranch preserves its heritage with rustic accents, barn themed doors (upscale California horse ranch, not red farm barns) and exposed wooden beams. The original stable's white bricks were used to construct the main building's edifice. Several restaurants and state-of-the-art conference facilities make Estancia's lush 9.5 acres a natural destination for both the business and leisure traveler.

Guests of all 210 rooms will appreciate California country home décor, 300 thread count bedding, lavish furnishings and 24 hour room service. They'll also appreciate a recent facelift, with rancho-coastal design with a “sophisticated California” color palette of sunset golds, navy and pops of harvest orange. Guestrooms have new carpets, drapes, linens, pillows, robes, custom headboards, custom lounge chairs, artwork, and other furnishings. Though strategic landscaping with dense plant life and trees will eventually insulate the hotel from busy Torrey Pines Road, we suggest a room away from this 4-lane street. An Estancia stay affords athletic-minded travelers a diverse menu of workout opportunities.

The complimentary on-site fitness center stocks an impressive array of cutting-edge equipment. And although step machines and free weights are not included, the University of California-San Diego's (UCSD) Recreation Center ($10) is right across the street! Runners will enjoy UCSD's competition quality 1/4-mile track, frequented by many professional endurance athletes.

Swimmers can perform flip turns in Estancia's 20-yard rectangle, but a lack of floating lines or bottom stripes may make straight-line swimming difficult. Other water options include UCSD's outdoor 50-meter pool, home to many local triathletes and a Masters swim program, and La Jolla Cove, which is an open water swimming experience from the beach to the pier.

La Jolla is loaded with unique outdoor pursuits including sea kayaking, motorized gliding, Torrey Pines golfing, hiking and cycling. Estancia may be able to help you with "Extreme Packages," or you can venture out on your own with ease.
