Facts At A Glance

Location

Perched upon the dramatic coastline of Southern California with a stunning backdrop of rugged cliffs, the rolling Pacific and soul-stirring sunsets; The Lodge at Torrey Pines is located in La Jolla, one of the most sophisticated resort towns on the Southern California Coast. The hotel occupies six and one-half acres immediately adjacent to the 18th green of the famed Torrey Pines Golf Course, with holes three and four being the most picturesque. The Torrey Pines State Reserve, a beloved California State Park with beaches, golden cliffs and forests of Torrey pine – the rarest native pine in the U.S. – is but a short walk away. The Lodge is a 20-minute drive from downtown San Diego and the San Diego International Airport. We encourage you to stay with us at The Lodge at Torrey Pines, the premier destination for San Diego luxury hotels.

Description

With its post-and-beam construction, expansive spaces, respect for the natural landscape and integration of indoor/outdoor living, The Lodge at Torrey Pines pays homage to the California Craftsman style of architecture of the early 1900s. The Craftsman style was an offshoot of the Arts & Crafts Movement, itself a response to the Victorian excesses of ornamentation and patterns, which emphasized clean lines, open spaces and rough hewn materials.

The Lodge is modeled after the Gamble and Blacker houses in Pasadena, California, two of the best examples of early 1900s Craftsman-style architecture by Greene & Greene.

Arriving guests are greeted at The Lodge’s grand porte cochère by doormen attired in kilted Scottish dress. Inside are 169 guest rooms including 8 suites, more than 13,000 square feet of indoor meeting and banquet space, a 9,500 square-foot full-service spa and two restaurants, including A.R. Valentien which serves contemporary California cuisine, and expansive public rooms with fireplaces, large mantelpieces, overstuffed couches, comfortable leather chairs and amazing views of the Torrey Pines Golf Course and the Pacific Ocean beyond. Behind The Lodge is a heated pool with relaxing poolside cabanas, whirlpool, croquet lawn, and a large terrace with chaise lounges for basking in the Southern California sun.

 

Design

Designed with the look and feel of a residence, The Lodge at Torrey Pines authentically reflects the California Craftsman style of architecture, featuring a natural color palette, graceful wing-like rooflines, shingle and sandstone-bluff exteriors, clinker-brick masonry, rich Jatoba woodwork and natural stone surfaces. The Lodge’s design complements the pristine beauty of the area’s pines and sandstone formations, with beam details that echo the windswept Torrey Pines themselves. World-renowned Craftsman expert Randell L. Makinson of Pasadena’s Gamble House Trust supervised the resort’s design team to ensure the authenticity of The Lodge’s Craftsman style.

 

Guest Rooms

The Lodge at Torrey Pines has 169 guest rooms, including 8 suites, all generously sized from 520 square feet to more than 2,000 square feet. Created with relaxation and comfort in mind, the guest rooms offer lovely views of the Torrey Pines Golf Course or The Lodge’s garden courtyard. Custom-designed furniture, fabrics and carpets featuring William Morris-style designs give the rooms an historic yet contemporary feel of elegance and warmth, further enhanced through appointments such as a granite-topped bar at each room’s entrance, a rich leather chaise lounge by the bed, Tiffany-style lamps and oil-rubbed bronze fixtures.

All rooms have the high-tech details demanded by today’s business traveler: large workspaces, high-speed Internet access, personal voicemail, separate data ports, state-of-the-art telecommunications and room safes large enough to hold laptop computers. Large bathrooms feature natural slab marble and granite floors and countertops, deep soaking tubs, and separate water closets. Rooms facing the golf course have separate marble-paneled stall showers.

 

Suites

Furnishings throughout the suites embody the Craftsmanship era, including stylish Stickley pieces in fine wood, fabric and leather, and all rooms are outfitted with fireplaces and high-tech details for the business traveler.
  • The Blacker Suite is 2,000 sq. ft., including a parlor, private sleeping porches, two-and-a-half baths, a butler kitchen and two fireplaces. There are two bedrooms: one king, the other with two queens. The bathrooms have walk-in showers and deep-soaking Jacuzzi tubs.
  • The Thorsen Suite is 800 sq. ft., with a 400 sq. ft. sleeping porch and king-size bedroom. There are separate fireplaces in the living room and on the porch, as well as over the tub in the bathroom. The bathroom is granite and marble, with a deep-soaking Jacuzzi tub, sofa and walk-in shower.
Both suites overlook the 18th green of Torrey Pines Golf course and have sweeping views of the Pacific coast. The Blacker and Thorsen Suites can be adjoined into a four-bedroom suite.
  • The Gamble Suite is 2,500 sq. ft., including a parlor, private patios, two-and-a-half baths, butler kitchen and two fireplaces. There are two bedrooms: one king, the other with two queens. The bathrooms have walk-in showers and deep-soaking Jacuzzi tubs.
  • The Robinson Suite is 900 sq. ft., with a fireplace in the living room and a king-size bedroom. The bathroom is granite and marble with a walk-in shower and oversized bathtub.
Both suites offer walk-out access to the 18th green of Torrey Pines Golf Course and have sweeping views of the Pacific coast. The Gamble and Robinson Suites can be adjoined into a four-bedroom suite.

 

Amenities

Everything that discriminating guests expect from a premier luxury hotel, including advanced in-room technology, minibar, coffee maker, custom-made toiletries, concierge and valet service, signature cuisine, a full-service spa and fitness center, a heated outdoor pool and whirlpool spa area with poolside cabanas and chaise lounges.

 

Dining

The Lodge's signature restaurant, AR Valentien, features fresh, innovative California cuisine served in a breathtaking setting overlooking the golf course and Pacific coastline. Executive Chef Jeff Jackson uses only the best local provisions, and the menu changes daily depending upon what's offered at local farmers' markets, as well as from other local growers, ranchers and fishermen. Dishes are prepared with minimal handling and in simple combinations to let inherent textures and flavors shine through.

The restaurant's wine list features California wines exclusively, including a variety of boutique wineries from throughout the state.

AR Valentien takes its name from Albert Robert Valentien, an early 20th-century Impressionist and one of San Diego's greatest artists, and features one of the largest collections of his early works in ceramics, watercolors and oils. Like The Lodge itself, the 90-seat restaurant is a tribute to Southern California heritage and Craftsman architecture, as well as an elegant setting for intimate dining.

Casual diners can enjoy breakfast, lunch and healthful light snacks at The Grill and The Bar, as well as at The Lodge's two comfortable lounges.

 

The Spa at Torrey Pines

Guests can take pleasure in more than 9,500 square-feet of spa space at the center of The Lodge’s retreat-like ambience, with 14 treatment rooms and beauty, massage and signature services that complement both the peaceful setting as well as guests’ more active pursuits, such as golf and hiking. The Spa has an extensive menu of massages, facials, rituals, wraps, hydrotherapy, hand and foot treatments available. It offers facilities for dry saunas, herbal-infused steam baths, and aromatherapy inhalation. Shower stalls have inlaid-tile mosaics inspired by Charles Rennie Mackintosh. A cardio/strength room features a range of state-of-the-art equipment, and fitness classes such as yoga are conducted outside on the Arroyo Terrace, a grassy stretch of earth overlooking the golf course and Pacific Ocean. A grand-scale pool and vanishing-edge whirlpool are available year-round in the temperate climate, and daily private and group hikes are available through the Torrey Pines State Reserve.

 

Meetings

From business meetings to weddings to promotional extravaganzas, all special occasions are well served by over 13,000 square feet of meeting and banquet space. The Lodge has 10 meeting rooms with capacities from 20 to 350 people, each done in consistent California Craftsman style. As such, all meeting rooms are outfitted with windows, decks and patio space.

The Lodge offers state-of-the-art audio and visual equipment, high-speed Internet access and a full line of meeting support services in each of its technologically advanced meeting rooms. The Lodge is also a premier spot for outdoor weddings held on the Arroyo terrace overlooking the 18th hole of the Torrey Pines Golf Course and the Pacific Ocean beyond.

 

Golf

The Lodge is prominently situated adjacent to the 18th hole of the world-famous South Course of the Torrey Pines Golf Course, a Rees Jones beauty that is the site of the Farmers Insurance Open each January and hosted the U.S. Open in 2008. The 7,607-yard South Course is open to the public and operated by the independent Torrey Pines Club Corporation.

The Lodge offers hotel guests preferred tee times and special golf packages. The golf pro shop, driving range, cart rental and golf school are also adjacent to The Lodge.

 

Recreation

Within walking distance or a short drive from The Lodge, the breathtaking Torrey Pines State Reserve, one of San Diego’s most beloved natural attractions, offers miles of trails for nature walks through forests of rare Torrey Pines, sandstone formations and broad and beautiful Blacks Beach along the Pacific. The Lodge offers two guided hikes daily.

The property sits on bluffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean and is minutes from some of the most pristine beaches for swimming, walking and bird watching in Southern California. The nearby areas of La Jolla and Del Mar provide excellent shopping.

The Lodge is located minutes from the famous Del Mar Racetrack, as well as the sites of La Jolla such as the Stephen Birch Aquarium and Museum, La Jolla Museum of Contemporary Art, La Jolla Playhouse, and shopping in the boutiques and galleries of Prospect and Girard Streets. In San Diego, big-city attractions such as world-renowned Sea World in San Diego, the San Diego Zoo, Museum of Contemporary Art, Gaslamp District, Old Town and Balboa Park are a mere 20-minute drive away.

 

Climate

La Jolla enjoys moderate to warm temperatures year round averaging in the 70's and 80's most of the year.
