Hotel Del Coronado
What Makes Hotel Del Coronado Special?
The Hotel Del Coronado is one of the most popular sites to see today because of its fascinating history and legacy of distinguished guests. We invite you to visit this trophy to experience this remarkable piece of history.
The Hotel Del Coronado, with its all-wood Victorian architecture and trademark red tile roof, is a must-see when visiting San Diego. The Hotel Del Coronado was named a Historical Landmark in 1977, and stands today as one of the oldest and few all-wood buildings in California.
In the original building, each room was unique and extravagantly furnished, as the hotel was originally built to accommodate the wealthy. The magnificent “Crown Room,” with its arched ceiling of notched sugar pine was constructed without using nails. The grand oak gazebo and spectacular ocean views continue to make the Hotel Del Coronado the luxurious resort that it is today.
The Hotel Del, as it is commonly referred to by locals, has been a popular point of interest for many presidents and movie stars, despite the rumors that it is haunted with ghosts. The Hotel Del has hosted every President since Lyndon Johnson, as well as many other important guests including Frank Baum, Thomas Edison, Babe Ruth and Charles Lindburgh (for whom the San Diego International Airport was later named).
We recommend the Hotel Del Coronado for both families and romantic getaways. Today, the Hotel Del Coronado is still considered a luxury resort by any standards, and it is popular for its daily brunches, even for visitors not staying at the Hotel.
