La Jolla, CA – Enjoy a classic Christmas at the Pink Lady this season. The landmark La Valencia Hotel is celebration central with a calendar of holiday fun built around the theme “Miracle on Prospect Street,” harkening to another holiday tradition. The season starts when millions of twinkling lights begin illuminating the sky for the hotel’s annual “Sea of Lights” on Nov. 23rd. And, don’t miss a community favorite – La V’s cozy Tree Lighting Ceremony on Nov 28th, complete with carolers, cocoa and crafts for the kids. In fact, La Valencia is such an integral part of this seaside community that its long-time Managing Director, Mark Dibella, has been invited to be the Grand Marshal of La Jolla’s 60th annual Christmas Parade on Dec. 3rd. La V is also ready to help take the stress out of your holiday feasting with specially crafted and lavish menus for Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s.

La Valencia is proud to be partnering with Miracle Babies this holiday season, a local charity started by Dr. Sean Daneshmand to assist families of sick newborns in their time of need. Miracle Babies will have a very special Pack ‘n’ Play set up by La V’s beautiful Christmas tree for the collection of: diapers, wipes, socks, blankets, burp cloths, and toys for siblings. Hotel guests and local residents are invited to share the holiday spirit by donating goods to help support the mission of this San Diego based non-profit.

The hotel has also created a season specific SHOPPING PACKAGE with rates starting at $249 for a two-night minimum in a Vintage Collection room and $379 per night for Junior Suites & King Villa category rooms for stays between the dates of 11/26/17 through 12/21/2017.
