LA JOLLA, CALIFORNIA Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants has taken over management of Hotel La Jolla for the property owner, an affiliate of Westport Capital Partners LLC.
Located just north of San Diego, the 108-key hotel has recently undergone a significant renovation to all guestrooms and is slated for a major renovation of the restaurant, reception, lobby and outdoor pool areas, to be completed early next year.
“San Diego—in particular, coastal San Diego—has been high on our list for continued expansion for some time,” says Kimpton CEO Mike Depatie. “We are so proud our growth in the market comes with this prominent and popular hotel and restaurant in one of the city’s most exclusive and desirable communities.”
The impending renovation will include the relocation of the hotel’s restaurant from the 11th floor to the first floor for easy access by locals and guests and offering outdoor seating. In addition, the main level of the hotel will be remodeled to include a reception area and living room with a lobby bar adjacent to the hotel’s swimming pool and poolside cabanas.
“We are very excited about the next phase for Hotel La Jolla,” says Westport principal Sean Armstrong. “It’s a terrific property and an asset for the community. With Kimpton’s management, we believe the hotel’s full potential can be realized.”
Hotel La Jolla is Kimpton’s second hotel in the San Diego area, joining Hotel Solamar in the city’s Gaslamp District.
