Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Parisi La Jolla
A real jewel of a find!
I stayed at the Hotel Parisi for 2 nights about a month ago. It is the most unique and well located Hotel experience I have found in California. It has Feng shui styling and holistic amenities no restaurant though but you are in the center of the village steps away from the ocean and any restaurant you could wish for. The Hotel has only 28 rooms and is private and intimate. I loved it and recommend this hotel to anyone visiting La Jolla, California, especially if you dislike large chain hotels.
PARADISE AT THE BEACH
On a recent trip to San Diego, my wife and I decided to treat ourselves and stay in La Jolla about 10 minutes north of San Diego. Our research introduced us to a small luxury hotel called Hotel Parisi. Staying there was one of the best travel decisions we've ever made. The ambiance of the hotel was a perfect melding of distinctive old European flavor with tasteful modern touches and conveniences. The staff was friendly, courteous, and as helpful as we have ever experienced. We felt like we were staying in a private villa in Italy.
One of the ways we judge the quality of a hotel is by the amenities. If they care enough to provide top quality, all natural amenities then you can be sure that all other services and products will be top notch as well. The amenities were the best we've seen in America or abroad. Even the location was ideal, steps from the beach, shops, resturants, and galleries yet it was delightfully quiet. La Jolla is a small, beautiful, upscale California beach town well worth the visit and I recommend, from our experience, that Hotel Parisi is not to be missed.
Hotel Parisi, is a small luxury hotel, not a resort. You have a wonderful and relaxing room, with a gorgeous bathroom, a nice breakfast all in a relaxing atmosphere that is in the center of LaJolla. The room has wonderful Frette linens and has a nice blend of zen and modernism, plus the free water and soda are a nice touch. Yes there are no restaurants, but you are in LaJolla, yes there is not a workout room, but you are in LaJolla. If you are looking for a first class stay in a small peaceful hotel, then this is your place. A perfect room in a perfect location.
A lovely blend of three continents
A lovely blend of Southern California with a touch of Asia (Zen) and some European flair
At the end of a hectic vacation marathon across parts of Europe and the continental USA early last summer, my wife and I found a soothing and very welcome relaxation at this winning combination of some of the best ingredients of three continents: very tasteful atmosphere, great comfort in the superb mini-suite (the bed was truly exceptional, amenities excellent), warm and friendly, non-obstrusive service with a particuliar mention for some of the dedicated multilingual staff. Altogether a wonderful experience in a lovely surrounding (with one minor regret for a little bland breakfast). We definitely look forward to an encore ! (possibly in the promising appartments they were just in the process of soft-opening across the street)
Bring Your Earplugs if You Want Sleep Before 3am!
My husband and I spent a Saturday night in a Hotel Parisi suite (ParisiApart) and were VERY impressed with the layout, amenities, and style of the room. It was luxurious and relaxing. Unfortunately, several of the Parisi suites (including ours) back to a public parking lot (complete with a well used garbage dumpster) and the noise of bar patrons remotely locking and unlocking their cars ("BEEP! BEEP!) as well as (presumably) the local restaurants' garbage being tossed in the dumpster at closing time kept us awake until 3am. I could also hear people talking in the hallway and the clicking of the lobby door being accessed well into the morning. I was so agitated that i got out of bed (at 3am) and set up a reservation with the Lodge at Torrey Pines for the remainder of my stay in La Jolla. Upon checkout the Parisi offered to move us, but I couldn't imagine that making enough of a difference; I simply wanted away from La Jolla's all-hours street noise. Torrey Pines was intimate, relaxing, and QUIET! (and did I mention less expensive for a room with a fireplace and view of the ocean?)
Yin and yang
At the end of a reunion weekend w/ girlfriends, needed a 1 night stay in La Jolla. Was convinced by the pleasant entrance and cajoling of registrar to "treat myself" to this luxury stay. Although I explained my need to leave for the airport at 6:15 a.m., was assured that I could at least pick up coffee and a little breakfast from staff who would be setting up by 6:00. Got no wake-up call (woke up myself, fortunately), was told by new clerk on duty that no way could I get even coffee until 6:30, but Starbucks was down the street, was assured that if I went for a quick beach walk the downstairs door would be open for me. When I returned 20 minutes later, the door was still locked and I couldn't rouse the clerk with the outside signal. Garage was also locked. Had to go to hotel across the street to call the Parisi, but clerk there couldn't find a number for them. Finally a bellman helped me reach the Parisi and I was able to race to the garage, retrieve my car, and be on my way to the airport. A lovely and comfortable setting, but they've got some service issues to work out.
Hotel Parisi a B-minus, not an A
Stayed at the Hotel Parisi for four nights (two adults, one child) during mid-February, 2003. The front desk is staffed by inexperienced and untrained young people. Breakfast food is very average and included in the room rate. Room was nice but the overall impression is that the hotel is not run by hotel people, the was no "hospitality." There are virtually no services offered by the hotel, no spa, no food service, no gym, no nothing. The La Valencia across the street is a bit more expensive but appeared to be worth it. Nice food service, nice rooms, better location (nearer the beach).
Chic, and Worth It!
Hotel Parisi is a truly chic, and worthwhile experience. Very relaxing and true to what the brochures/websites promise. You can't ask for
a better location. It is in the heart of La Jolla and within walking distance of wonderful
shopping and dining, not to mention, the beach. Staying there is an experience itself.
The atmosphere is chic but comfortable, clean
and rejuvenating. We appreciated the complimentary bottled water, and the continental
breakfast - very convenient. We have traveled
extensively and are frustrated/disappointed when
we stay somewhere that promises a unique and
special experience, then falls short of the
promise. Not so with Hotel Parisi, we were
pleasantly surprised and enjoyed every minute.
Wanting to take my over-traveled husband somewhere close but new, romantic, and relaxing I booked a room at the Hotel Parisi.
Having usually stayed at the La Valencia, I was at first weary of the small property. However, I came to find that what Parisi lacks in size it more then make up in service and style. The rooms and the lobby feature all original artwork and the furnishings are all custom made -in exteremly relaxing good taste. The neutral color palate and lobby fireplace warms the minimalist and somewhat modern decor. And the bed...all down and egyptian cottons-dream inducing to say the least!
We also opted for an in-room couples massage, the privacy of our room really created an experience that was beyond what you can get at a spa. In fact, we had planned to have dinner later that evening, but after our massage, we opted to stay in, enjoying the room service...and eachother!
Amazing Feng Shui Hotel!
I stayed at the Hotel Parisi for 2 nights about a month ago. It is the most unique and well located zen experience in California. Feng shui styling and holistic amenities. I loved it and recommend this hotel to anyone visiting La Jolla, California.

We did see some seals and sea lions sunning themselves on the rocks and swimming nearby. We had a great time. Noel got to use his new camera and extendable stick both in the water and in the canoe.

That was pretty much it for today, apart from sushi for lunch in a cove on the beachfront, and seeing a bride and groom being photographed on the rocks. All I could think about was her dress getting ruined by the salt water!

But it's cool because you can the zoo (which looks like a rainforest from above) and San ...

As we go through the centre you can imagine it comes to life at night, lots of bars and places to eat, looks really nice to be honest. Next it's onto Balboa Park, a bit like Kew Gardens but much bigger, also in the park are 18 free museums, from automotive to the Japanese Garden. ...
