I've never stayed at the Hotel Del, but I've been there plenty of times. If you're in San Diego, do not miss this place. It's iconic. And don't forget to look at the tower. If you're lucky you'll see the ghost of the girl who jumped out of that room.Recommended for:

THIS IS A MAGICAL PLACE!
After an awe-inspiring walking journey, we returned to catch the next trolley. This time, we headed for Coronado. More class and elegance and incredible views. It was especially relaxing to enjoy a waffle cone on the ocean-view deck at the Hotel del Coronado. Talk about class! Naturally, we took off our shoes and walked the beach.

Wow! This hotel is absolutely stunning. It costs and arm and a leg to stay as a guest, but even if you aren't, it's worth it to go inside and explore the history. We walked in from the beach by one of the restaurants. Just inside, beyond the restaurants is a set of bathrooms. Off in one of the small halls is a set of display cases telling the story of Hotel Del's beginnings, history, and how it was almost taken down. Now it's a historic landmark with celebs like Marilyn Monroe as previous guests and former presidents have also hosted grand events here.
During summer, you're bound to come across at least one wedding. When we were here, a crew hauling things into one of the ballrooms for a reception. I wandered to the entrance for a peek. It's going to be a grand wedding.
You'll also want to go to the main lobby. The dark wood stairs as you wander through the hall is beautiful. When you reach the main hall, take a in the high, latticed ceiling. And the elevator! I wish I could have actually taken a ride; I was afraid to ask. It's an old school elevator that still works, with a human elevator operator inside!
One day...I'd love to stay at the hotel for a night...Recommended for:

Gorgeous view and one of the top hotels in all of San Diego. Weddings are held here all the time and various celebrities and presidents have stayed here. At one time it was the largest hotel resort in the world.Recommended for:

If you are looking for elegance but still want to experience a resort this is the property for you.
It is a bit stuffy but the service is impeccable and most of the staff have been there for years so they remember your needs and that is a really special quality.
The rooms are comfortable and if you are staying here and can afford to upgrade then do get an Ocean Front Room.
The 24 hour room service and fabulous restaurants make this a family favorite.Recommended for:

Amazing historical hotel on Coronado. Sight of the movie 'Some like it Hot' with Marilyn Monroe. This is a great place to stay when coming to San Diego with a great beach right outside. There are shops and restaurants located inside. Prices are not that steep average $4 for a coffee. The only negatives for staying here is the fact that you are secluded to Coronado unless you have a car or expect to pay min. Of $50 cab fare to get anywhere elseRecommended for:

One of the historical landmark in Coronado Island. This Victorian hotel, built in 1887, is one of America's largest wooden building. The hotel has hosted several presidents and other national figures.Recommended for:

If you love history and beautiful architecture, this is one place you would want to visit if you are unable to stay there. The grounds and white sandy beaches are beautiful.Recommended for:

A gorgeous must-see in San Diego! Built in 1888, this classic beachfront respite near San Diego, California has long been heralded as one of America’s most beautiful beach resorts. A pronouncement underscored by its designation as a National Historic Landmark in 1977. P.S. Coronado was recently named No. 1 Best Beach in America for 2012 in the highly anticipated list by Florida International University professor and coastal expert Stephen P. Leatherman, a.k.a. "Dr. Beach".

The Hotel Del is tough to beat. It is architecturally spectacular and classic in its styling. Just walking around the property takes you back in time to its origins in the 1880's. The history including Marilyn Monroe's film "Some Like it Hot" adds to its mystique.Recommended for:

My bridesmaids booked my bachelorette party here because I wanted a mellow time. They are so sweet. I am so surprised and I felt so spoiled because Hotel Del Coronado is absolutely beautiful with a beach front area so you can walk to the ocean. This is a classy stay and many presidents have stayed here. www.sailorgirlfriend.com

The rooms here are pretty dated, but it's such an iconic hotel! Coronado beach was rated as the number one in the world recently, so even if you aren't staying here, it's worth dropping by to wander around. The lobby is old-world opulent and the outside walkways to the rooms are manicured. During the holidays there is an ice skating rink outside, right next to the sand, which is quite a sight. Don't forget to try Mootime Creamery!
