La Jolla offers some lovely hotels to escape to…perfect for a weekend respite from Los Angeles. Here are a few staff favorites.
The Cormorant is a boutique hotel offering sweeping views of the water. The origins of the establishment began in 1940, when it was Prospect Market. Rooms were added for rent in the 1960s when it was known as the La Jolla Inn. The 26-room boutique hotel had an extensive renovation and opened to the public in September 2021. Offering art deco-inspired rooms, the boutique hotel features a rooftop dining spot called Birdseye.
Its new namesake is inspired by La Jolla’s native black bird. The Cormorant Boutique Hotel, 1110 Prospect Street, La Jolla, CA, 92037; https://cormorantlajolla.com/rooms
