The Grande Colonial Hotel in La Jolla, California is a 2012 AAA Four Diamond Award winner and a historic beauty that honors its traditions yet offers contemporary amenities and services. Built in 1913 as the Colonial Apartment and Hotel, the Grande Colonial was a trailblazer in its day. Its original white wood-framed building was the first lodging facility in downtown La Jolla and saw today’s tourist town grow around it. The hotel is footsteps away from lovely beaches, including Blacks Beach, La Jolla Cove, La Jolla Shores, and Windansea Beach, and is the preferred choice of boutique hotels near San Diego attractions such as Torrey Pines Golf Course and State Park.
