Rising from water's edge on the quaint island of Coronado in San Diego, the Hotel del Coronado is considered one of America's most beautiful beach resorts.

A classic historic hotel, The Del was built in 1888 and designated a National Historic Landmark in 1977. Today, The Del offers travelers contemporary luxury in an enchanting Victorian atmosphere. Add the resort's beachfront location, and it's no wonder USA Today calls The Del one of the top ten resorts in the world. The Del offers a quintessential San Diego resort vacation experience. For those seeking a romantic retreat, the resort's magical architecture and island setting are perfect. In fact, the Travel Channel rated The Del the number-one wedding destination in America. The Del is also a wonderful family vacation destination, featuring abundant recreation, as well as seasonal teen and children's programs. And, for getting down to business, meeting and incentive planners can work with over 65,000 feet of indoor and outdoor meeting and exhibition space.

Hotel del Coronado, situated along 28 oceanfront acres, is an elegant example of Victorian architecture and is considered one of America's most beautiful resorts. The Del has become a living legend with visits by celebrities, U.S. presidents and dignitaries from around the world. In fact, publisher Rand McNally credits the Hotel del Coronado as enjoying more fame and historical significance than perhaps any hotel in North America.

With almost 365 days of sunshine and an award- wining beachfront location, The Del is the premier West Coast leisure destination for family adventures or romantic getaways. The resort offers a variety of casual and fine dining restaurants overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Guests can enjoy year-round recreation activities including surfing, boating, biking or relaxing poolside or on the beach. There are two swimming pools, spa services, fitness center and over 20 shops and boutiques. The charming island village of Coronado is just outside The Del's front door and exciting downtown San Diego is only ten minutes away.

The Hotel del Coronado's Self Parking is now $37 & Valet Parking is $47, per vehicle, per night. Please also note we have recently gone pet friendly and there is a $150 non refundable charge for pet cleaning fees.

Overpriced

Bathroom smaller than the walk-in closet. Barely room to turn around. Not worth the price. Also had to pay to use internet to download boarding passes, bad business!!!! Lovely location but must have rental car to get around. Immediately upon check in asked if wanted upgrade for "partial ocean view", then bellman also asked if we wanted a better view than the delivery area. We paid the same price as our son who had a view of the courtyard so why not give us the same view? We won't stay here again for San Diego Wine Fest.

A trip with my siisters and sister in law

Spectacular view of the hotel and boathouse from our balcony. The history tour was interesting. We took a ferry to San Diego and visited the Maritime museum. The resteraunts were very good. Night life was quiet on Coronado but a 20min cab ride to San Diego fixed that when needed. Overall a beautiful place to see and the spa was amazing.

An historic gem that's overpriced but lovely.

Staff was excellent and the Victorian room was small but clean. Our maid was wonderful. Pool and beach waters were too cold for us to use, so we wish we had stayed cheaper and just walked over to see the place. Lots of brides everywhere and business functions constantly, but our room was pretty quiet except for Saturday night.

Fantastic Vacation for couples

Worth the stay and trip. Dining at the hotel site was pricey, but lots of dining locations within a short walking distance. Breath-taking views of the beach.

Always great

When the weather is good, you can't beat this stop-over for a few days. So much to do right onsite, everything is beautiful and on a beach to die for. Very hard to beat anywhere in America at the most highly rated hotel resorts.

So Much Great History!!

It was an amazing experience. The whole family took surf lessons and had a ball!! We enjoyed learning about all the cool History of the hotel. Even watched "Some Like it Hot" and saw it back in the day. My 5th grade son learned about Frank L. Baum this year in school and found it fascinating that he wrote four of the Wizard of Oz books there at The Del Coranado. It was kinda pricey.. but it was well worth it!
