Iconic, culturally refined and globally appealing, the new room category also includes the expansive, La Valencia Villa and the apartment style, Pacific Suite each with stunning ocean views. The Pacific Suite will join the Icon collection in late 2015.
• The Sky Suite - Tower Wing: This all-new, one-bedroom suite will be unveiled in May as the newest iteration of the hotel's most dramatic ocean-inspired real-estate. Designed in a modern version of sleek, 1940's Hollywood style, this 1,100 square feet suite dazzles with 180-degree ocean views of the Pacific and La Jolla Cove from retractable window walls that allow the Pacific breezes to envelop the senses. A hardwood floor entry opens to the living room with chic seating arrangements, dining area, and a wet bar that calls for “martini time.” The bedroom offers even more ocean views and a romantic Juliet balcony. The bathroom includes an oversized shower - with multiple side and rain shower heads - granite countertops and dual sinks.
The Sky Suite can also connect to an Ocean View Junior Suite – with matching décor and matching, unforgettable views from its own retractable window walls -- to create nearly 2,000 square feet of total living space and the ultimate two-bedroom suite with-a-view.
And, for the ultimate “top of the world” escape, guests can secure the entire 10th floor which will include six different rooms: the breathtaking Sky Suite and its connecting Classic Junior Suite; two Vintage Rooms, one Classic Room and another Classic Junior Suite – all with stunning ocean views. This entire floor provides room for a family or group of 12 to 16.
The history of this sky high space underscores the evolution of this ever-evolving jewel of a hotel in La Jolla. In 1928, this tenth floor location held court to sun and sea worshipers as the Sun Deck and then in the late 1950's a new era of haute cuisine was launched with the transformation of the Sun Deck to the 12-table, Sky Room gourmet restaurant. This intimate dining room offered guests not only the best ocean views in Southern California but also the best in fine wine and gourmet dining, delivered from a kitchen three floors below.
