Bringing the Sea …to La Jolla Cove Suites

We were definitely in for a treat when Heather and Rob decided to have their wedding reception at our breathtaking oceanfront oasis. We loved how they brought sea life and vibrant colors into their wedding scape.   


Not only was the deep blue sea present, the not-so-typical flower arrangements (who wants typical now ‘a days?) from PB Blossom gave the tables extra depth. The use of ceramic pots gave the daises, roses and lilies a chance to have their own spotlight.


Heather and Rob were married outside with the water behind them at Ellen Browning Scripps Park, right across the street from La Jolla Cove Suites. Adore Wedding Design placed bamboo straw fans near the ceremony area, making sure guests were comfortable while the sea loving couple said their I do’s.


It was a great pleasure to have Heather & Rob share this special day with us and we wish them all the best in the years to come!


Another Beautiful Wedding- Congratulations Dana and Trevor


This weekend we were honored to host Dana and Trevor’s wedding and reception on the rooftop of La Jolla Cove Suites. The weather was excellent and the blue water was the perfect backdrop for such a beautiful wedding. The couple chose Adelaide’s  to provide their flowers which adorned their chuppa.


The Abbey Catering provided a package deal that included white kites which floated above their guests during the ceremony.


We loved their use of succulents in tiny mason jars as place card holders! The couple provided lids for the jars and takeout style boxes so guests were able to take their succulents home with them at the end of the night. The rustic watering can and burlap sash across the table tied into their theme very nicely.


Dana and Trevor scattered pillows throughout the rooftop on the lamp posts, adding color and flair to their reception décor, while also providing comfortable seating for their guests. They also made sure to incorporate a very important part of their lives by including their dog as their ring bearer, we just loved his yellow bowtie!

The wedding and reception went perfectly from start to finish and everybody had a wonderful time. We wish Dana and Trevor many years of happiness together and we can’t wait to see them next year for their anniversary!

Theo and the Zydeco Patrol at La Jolla Cove


Theo and the Zydeco Patrol turned La Jolla Cove into a backwoods, bayou bash with its infectious Cajun crooning at yesterday’s La Jolla Concert By the Sea. The San Diego-based band got the crowd dancing and craving crawfish etouffee, shrimp gumbo, beignets from Café du Monde … but we digress. Our guests enjoyed the foot-stomping concert from the comfort of their private oceanfront balconies. La Jolla Cove Suites gave away another free overnight in a suite! You’ll have another chance to win next week, when you sign up at the park.

 Bastard Sons of Johnny Cash

La Jolla fans of the Americana music spectrum got a big dose of their favorite sounds yesterday as the Bastard Sons of Johnny Cash played Scripps Park at the La Jolla Concert By the Sea. The San Diego-native band is led by songwriter Mark Stuart, who received express permission from the “Man in Black” for the use of his name.

La Jolla Cove Suites Hotel Kitties

Kittens-14 weeks

There is no doubt that the top criteria for choosing a hotel are its location, clean rooms, and excellent customer service. Beyond that, one important and often overlooked discriminator, though, is whether or not there are hotel kitties at large. It is widely known that the presence of hotel kitties is a strong indicator of a warm, family-oriented, and pet-friendly hotel. 

La Jolla Cove Suites’ hotel kitties, Cornelius and Cleo, are 14 weeks young and thriving. They just went to the vet for their booster vaccines. They are still very playful. One of Cornelius’ favorite games is scaling Assistant General Manager Joanna’s desk via the path he forged, walking across her paperwork, getting  put back down on the floor, and repeating ad infinitum. Both cats are growing very quickly, and their personalities are really starting to show. Cornelius is in charge but Cleo holds her own.  Please come visit our hotel – and our kitties.

Big Time Operator Summer Concert in Front of La Jolla Cove Suites


Big Time Operator got La Jolla Cove swinging yesterday at the second in the annual series of La Jolla Concerts By the Sea. The 10-piece big band is a multiple-year winner of San Diego Music Awards in the Best Big Band category, among other accolades. We dug the dancers we saw cutting the rug – er, grass. Our guests enjoyed the best parking spot in the village for heading over to join in the fun. Did we mention we’ll be giving away one free overnight in a suite at several upcoming concerts? Be sure to sign up in the park to be eligible to win.


Vivid Poetry by a La Jolla Cove Suites Guest

A special La Jolla Cove Suites guest vacationed here regularly with his family in the 1950s and 60s. As an adult he has continued to return to the hotel with his family. On his last visit, his granddaughter wrote this poem, entitled “The Cove.” He presented this poem to our Front Desk upon check in today to celebrate his anniversary!. We hope you enjoy this poem as much as we do.

The Cove
By Lisa McVeigh

It is not a rooster
nor an alarm clock
that wakens me,
That lifts me out of my peaceful
to the bright new day
It is my senses calling me –
Proclaiming the beauty
Of the Cove in all its wonder

With open eyes,
a clear blue sky becomes visible,
a comely canvas stretched behind
the rocky hillside

Upon removing the sleepy dust,
The ocean comes alive,
Vivacious, turquoise waves
Caressing the sandy shore

La Jolla surrounds me,
Whipping wind against my face
The icy chill of the morning breeze
And the salty mist,
Reaching the tip of my nose

The morning passes
And I reach the beckoning smells of
Restaurants and cafes lining the walk

The palm trees, like sticks,
Fanning the white-feathered birds that
Through their green palms
and over a body of water,
So significantly named

A white bench resting on dry land
A rock towering over the water
Sandals off, and my toes slip into the
Many grains of sand
Relaxing and waiting
