Hotel del Coronado

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The Del is an experience as you are staying in a historic wooden building, but with modern technology everywhere and unparalleled customer service. I have stayed in a ton of hotels and never have I felt the level of courteous, helpful customer service like I did at the Del from everyone I encountered. The rooms aren't brand new with top level finishes and fixtures, but the location, views and customer service combine to provide a five-star vacation experience. They have pools, hot tubs, bars, restaurants, numerous shops, spa facilities, etc...everything you need on a vacation. All this while being right on the beautiful Coronado Beach and within walking distance of all the shops on Coronado's main drag. My only complaint would be the pricing of the breakfast buffet ($37) and small deli downstairs (ham/cheese croissant, banana, cookie and orange juice - $24) make you feel like they are squeezing every last penny out of you. When the room rate is already high, reasonably priced food and snacks help reinforce the value vs feeling gouged. We ate dinner at the Sheerwater and fully expected the prices for a nice dinner. Breakfast and snacks could be more reasonable.

Excellent place to stay, the staff was nice, once you get get there you don't need to leave the hotel it is so nice

They kept us up to date on all their activities via email.

This is the best hotel in or anywhere near San Diego California. We had an issue with the room in the upgraded us to an amazing that a room at absolutely no cost with no fuss. This is my second time at this hotel and I plan to return within a couple of years. Happy traveling.

Beautiful hotel with a lot of history. Feels like you stepped back in time. Great views of beach and only a short walk. Bar in hotel has live music most nights. Staff is very nice and courteous. Its a happy, well kept place!

The room was clean and a cross from the pool. The food was excellent. Ice skating rink was so much fun! Christmas decorations were beautiful! The best part....dogs can stay there too.

Love love the hotel, didn't like having to pay $37 a day for parking with the rental car

it was our anniversary so my daughter called to have wine delivered to our room. we never received it even after calling twice and my daughter also called. we were told they were very busy and would get to it. also said the do not disturb was on the door which was not true. also the Kuric coffee was in the rooms now so 2 cups then go down to the lobby stand in line and buy one. bathroom was remodeled with 2 sinks so no counter space for your things. I thought we were in the Del but were sent t the building next door which was owned by them ??? our room faced the sidewalk and a building next door. this was especially disturbing as it was to be a special anniversary trip.

Everything about this historic beautiful hotel is special. the bed linens and pillows were Exceptional!!

dated hotel that needs a redo. only one clerk working front desk when we checked on food and drink 50%+ higher than going outside the hotel. ridiculous!

We got married here so it is always a pleasure. All the guests seem happy and the staff are pleasant and accommodating.

Beautiful and a fun walkable town. If you go have dinner at the Blue Water Boathouse Seagood Grill. My only complaint abt the Del is the food was very pricey. Drinks were $17. However - fun reasonable food is right out your door.

Beautiful beach. Nice rooms. Good food but pricy. Room service is better then restaurants.

I was very excited before I got to the deal Coronado. However, I was really disappointed by the entire experience.

Too many people. It is not a place for a quite getaway. Service is adequate.

We totally unplugged while we were there. The restaurant choices are wonderful.

The hotel is in excellent location right on the beach. The grounds are beautiful. The room was cozy and clean. Hotel does not get any better in terms of history and comfort. We only had an issue with the noise. Because it is older/wood-based building we could hear guests upstairs and going up and down the stairs.

Although this is a 4 star hotel, you must arrive with the appropriate expectations. if you are impressed with California history, architecture and authenticity - then this hotel is a good choice for you! I loved the beautiful rose wood, along with a Full Brass (open mesh) elevator. It was so beautiful and tempting, that I used it more than the stairs. The room was extremely comfortable, plenty of room - (walk in closet), solid wood plantation shutters, balcony, ceiling fan and 40" flat screen TV. When you step outside the front entrance, you could be shopping in a specialty store, picking up some sunscreen from a drug store, or dining in a fine seafood restaurant in minutes!! Literally minutes to everything you could want. When you step out the back entrance, it opens up a world of hotel shops, patio dining, pizza and wine bar and all with the beach for a backdrop. Guess I could go on and on, but I believe the point is made. We didn't try the hotel restaurants due to the wait and crowds. For our convenience, the room service was good and efficient. Remember when you are at the Del Coronado Hotel, where the WALLS AND CEILING are still made of wood, there must be precautions like fire alarms and sprinklers. We had a few times when the alarms sounded during the night, and when you wake up in a room/building made of wood, you take notice. We were promptly notified by the security team over the intercom and assured the issue was addressed. The customer service at check out was impressive. We inquired about the alarms and he explained in detail about each incident. They offered to reduce our bill without us asking. Truly a superb experience at "The Del" !!

Everyone was very kind. In fronyt of hotel, there was a fine seashore. Hotel was so beautiful, so I was proud of stsying there. I'll recommend someone who want tp travel San Diego. Thank you very much.

Peaceful and wonderful. Just what the doctor ordered Perfect in every way!!!!
