Area: La Jolla/Torrey Pines

On Prospect Avenue in the heart of La Jolla's shopping and dining district, this boutique hotel is perfectly situated for a weekend getaway. La Jolla's hub is hardly urban, but it is in high demand. Unfortunately, traffic jams, crowded sidewalks and nightlife noise are common detractors for this wealthy town, especially on weekends. However, in addition to placing you within an easy walk to fancy clothing, art and furniture galleries and tremendous restaurants, a Prospect Street home base provides incredible views of the Pacific Ocean, rocky shores and seal-filled coves.

Colonial's 75 quaint guest units are Victorian in style with pale yellow tones, large windows and country home furnishings. Goose down comforters and premium bedding create a cozy respite. Many rooms (the more expensive, of course) impart tremendous views of La Jolla Cove and the Pacific Ocean.

Since no workout room is offered on-site, guests looking for an indoor sweat can walk 3-5 minutes to La Jolla Sports Club. Except for a pool, it's a full-service gym with modern equipment.

Runners are encouraged to head outside and hit La Jolla's residential streets and hills...big hills, or, La Jolla High School's 1/4-mile track.

Swimmers with a wetsuit or thick skin can take to the Cove where open water freestylers make their home along with the wildlife. Swimming to the pier is a local favorite but have someone pick you up on the other side. For a measurable swim session, head to La Jolla High School's new 50-meter lap pool. It's normally set up short course, and adult lap swim hours are available throughout the day, it's about a mile and a half south on Fay street ($10).
