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.

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!

2nd and last trip

the staff, the food, upkeep, and the clientele has gone down hill the last few years. We were awoken the last day at 5:45 am by a crazy woman screaming banging on her neighbors door because they were to loud. It took 45 min and four rooms calling for security to come. you could clearly hear each room screaming at the receptionist. Not even an apology from hotel for slow response time or for not doing anything to that customer . Nice of her to ruin eight other families vacation. Beautiful location but ....would not recommend it.
