    Historic and romantic. Be sure to stay in the traditional / older wing --it has the character and history. The new wing is less distinctive. Great to be on the beach, and close to the San Diego Zoo.

    The "Hotel del" is San Diego's most storied hotel, and for good reason. Its beachside location and full spread of amenities make it a prime base for exploring SD and surrounding areas.

    If you go to San Diego, you must go here, even if it's just to look. You can drive across the Coronado Bay Bridge to get there, or go further down and drive up Highway 75 (the long way, but anywhere you go in San Diego is interesting), or you can ride a ferry over. Coronado Island is a beautiful island, in addition to having this very famous hotel.

    The "Hotel Del" ... is an iconic place in San Diego. Even if you don't stay here it's definitely worth checking out.

    It's a bit on the older side which you can tell immediately from walking around in the lobby. But it's a throwback to an era that you don't see in many hotels anymore ... so it's kind of neat at the same time.

    It's famously know to be haunted which might scare some people off ... but staying was one of the most wonderful experiences I've had in San Diego.

    I got a beach front room which was awesome to just wake up and sit out on the patio and enjoy the ocean breeze and listen to the crashing waves.

    There's really not much in Coronado, and it's a bit far from the rest of San Diego... so just sit back and relax. Having meals in the circular dinning hall, especially during sunset is a wonderful experience that I'd highly recommend to anyone. You get a wonderful meal while enjoying the picturesque scene of the sun sitting on the ocean waves. Superb!

    Lovely historic hotel located in Coronado Island. Beautiful light engulfs all the the common areas of the hotel---and did I mention Marilyn Monroe stayed here???

    Rooms are average and the decor has the old "luxury" feel that compliments the historic time.

    The view is OUTSTANDING---water and beaches galore. Grab a cocktail and walk around the grounds at sunset. You'll LOVE IT!

    Iconic hotel on a beautiful beach. Ice skating rink overlooking the beach in December is fun.
