Conference and Corporate Meeting Destination
by the IACC; Slated to Open June 2004
LA JOLLA, Calif., - (August 26, 2003) Currently under development, the Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa will soon become one of La Jolla's consummate settings for conferences and corporate meetings. The International Association of Conference Centers (IACC) presented the property with provisional acceptance of its plans in fulfilling the IACC¹s gold standard criteria, a list of stringent requirements for conference centers.
Formerly the historic Black Family Horse Farm, Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa is located across the street from UCSD's Eleanor Roosevelt College and adjacent to the renowned Salk Institute.
Designed by Hill Glazer Architects, the hotel and conference center will highlight the traditional California coastal rancho setting and will be composed of a series of low-rise adobe structures with arched doorways and clay tile roofs. Wood lintels, exposed rafters, wrought iron, thick plaster walls and other traditional materials will be used to complete the rancho-style surroundings and pay tribute to the rich history of this unique property. Interior Design firm, Babey Moulton Jue & Booth integrates a collection of furnishings and imagery consistent with the rancho environment while adding a warmth and comfort attractive to the traveling business professional.
Scheduled to open June 2004, Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa will offer 210 rooms and a state-of-the-art Learning Retreat complete with 25,000 square feet of interior conference space. Open-air loggias, outdoor courts, and gardens will border conference rooms and facilities for optimal views and aesthetic appeal. Other planned amenities including a 6,000 square foot ballroom, a variety of multifunctional auditoriums and conference rooms, a 125-seat amphitheater, indoor and outdoor pre-function areas, permanent break stations, a high-tech business center and a dedicated meeting planner¹s office, are earning Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa a reputation as a comprehensive meeting and conference destination, as well as a luxurious and sought-after leisure hotel.

academic, science, technology and corporate areas. Featuring a single
