Third room was a charm...
First room had bathroom door off hinges. Moved to second room and sink was backed up. They upgraded us to suite and sent up bottle of champagne and appetizers and nice card. Curtains a little worn. Very friendly and polite staff.

We were with family for Thanksgiving. We loved LaValencia. The location near the water and downtown is ideal. They were very accommodating. It is an old property but very well maintained and updated.
