It's 2:00 a.m. The only sounds are the waves crashing down at the cove. The phone rings at the front desk. The staff sees the room number. The call is from a room they know is empty. Is the Grande Colonial haunted? It's been a common rumor around La Jolla for generations. The guests and staff have reported encounters with apparitions in the hallways, stairwells, guest rooms, and kitchen, but no one can know for sure. The hotel certainly has had more than its share of unexplainable events over the past 100+ years. The good news is that all these experiences have one thing in common - they're always about people having fun.

Something magical about it, for sure. It draws us in, beckoning à retour. Anyone try dressing in period costume with a few coins in hand from 1913? Drop a postcard from somewhere in time? 😉

Happy Halloween

Today we mourn the loss of one of our longtime guests, Mrs. Mary Ann Barrie, who at the age 88 passed away this week at her home here in La Jolla. Mary has been a staple at NINE-TEN for many years, occupying seat 93, which will never have a more pleasant and kind soul to keep our bartender’s company. Bartender Rob recalls fondly: “One of my favorite things was to see you crossing Prospect on your way home from La Jolla Village shopping. Hands full of treasures from local shops and flowers from Adelaide's. I would quickly set up your spot for lunch, complete with your favorite sav blanc, menu and a cold glass of ice water before you could make it around the corner. Every visit without fail you would comment... ’Now that's service, that's service.’ Then you would notice that cold glass of ice water and mention, ‘That's what I needed most...that village hill gets me every time.’ Making your day a bit brighter was the least I could do to return the favor of your infectious kindness.” Today in your memory, we keep your regular seat reserved with these special flowers and your usual libation. Rest in peace Mrs. Barrie. You are one of the great ones. ... See MoreSee Less

My mom absolutely loved coming to 910. We so appreciate all the love and care that you bestowed on her. You treated her with such kindness and thoughtfulness. Thank you!

This is the perfect example why we love your staff and stay there when we are in town.

I think this is so beautiful. When my brother passed away, his favorite (in Maryland) restaurant bartender set up a placement, with a newspaper, his cold beer and a few other things, it was now a memorial seat! It was so touching to walk in and see it. Miss you daily Joey!!

What a beautiful tribute! This why I stay and eat when I am in La Jolla 🥰

May she rest in peace. Lovely tribute

One reason, out of many, that I choose The Grande Grande Colonial when I come to town ⚘

Shared. What a beautiful way to remember this guest.

Very classy thing to do!❤️💕

Awwwww that’s so nice you guys!!!

Congratulations to our General Manager, Kim Avant, who this past weekend completed the Cornell University General Managers Program. Running for over 30 years, the program is the world’s premiere transformational learning experience for hotel general managers and their immediate successors. Led by senior Cornell faculty, the curriculum included two live virtual courses, followed by six days of intensive, interactive, and engaged onsite learning at the Cornell University’s School of Hotel Administration in Ithaca, New York. Kim joined 40 other hotel managers and owners, representing 21 countries and over 800 years of experience in the hotel industry, learning everything from strategic leadership, marketing, HR, finance and change management. The program culminated in a closing dinner and certificate presentation ceremony. Congratulations, Kim. We cannot wait for you to apply your new toolkit here at the Grande Colonial Hotel, La Jolla and NINE-TEN Restaurant & Bar. #leadership #marketing #hotel #experience #learning #finance #university #changemanagement #hr #administration #school #cornelluniversity eCornell #grandecolonialteam ...

Well done Kim!

Exciting morning as we became the star of a national television commercial being shot in La Jolla today. Our historic façade was the absolute perfect backdrop. While we can't share any of the details about the client or product, hopefully you'll see us this summer on national TV! #luxurytravel #luxuryhotel #boutiquehotel #historichotels #lajollahotels #sandiegohotels #WithLoveSanDiego #MyLaJolla #VisitCalifornia NINE-TEN Restaurant & Bar #readyformycloseup ...
