Undeniably Southern Californian, the hotel is charged with local creative energy, speaking to discerning travelers who appreciate the unpretentious vibes of San Diego County.

A dining destination in its own right, Mission Pacific is home to Valle, a MICHELIN-starred restaurant from Baja’s acclaimed chef Roberto Alcocer, paying homage to Mexico’s Valle de Guadalupe.

Additional onsite venues include High/Low and The Rooftop Bar, an all-day beach club oasis with sunset views and regular DJ sessions.

The restored Top Gun House, known for its appearance in the 1986 hit film Top Gun, is also situated on Mission Pacific grounds. Lovers of the classic film can enjoy Americana desserts, offering signature hand pies filled with seasonal, locally picked fruits.

Located steps away, Mission Pacific’s sister resort, The Seabird Ocean Resort & Spa, is ranked among the Top 15 within the Best Continental U.S.
