About Hotel Del Coronado, Coronado
Hotel del Coronado (also known as The Del and Hotel Del) is a historic beachfront hotel in the city of Coronado, just across the San Diego Bay from San Diego, California. It is one of the few surviving examples of an American architectural genre: the wooden Victorian beach resort. It is the second largest wooden structure in the United States (after the Tillamook Air Museum in Tillamook, Oregon) and was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1977 and a California Historical Landmark in 1970. When it opened in 1888, it was the largest resort hotel in the world. It has hosted presidents, royalty, and celebrities through the years. The hotel has been featured in numerous movies and books. The hotel received a Four Diamond rating from the American Automobile Association and was once listed by USA Today as one of the top ten resorts in the world, though it has since been removed from that list.Wikipedia

Beautiful hotel that you can access even if you are not a guest! That's right you can shop, walk through it, have drinks, eat or go swim on the very nicely groomed beaches. Watch as they have professional sand castles building and other fun activities. It's all free too!! I recommend parking on the south west side of the hotel if you can find a spot. There's a little beach entrance there and that way you don't have to pay for the hotel parking.
I’ve been making the Hotel Del Coronado a part of my tradition for the holidays and take pictures by the tree for 17 years and was finally able to have Thanksgiving dinner in the crown room with all 13 of us. It was beautiful and the staff was great! The food was amazing too. The reason I left off a star was because I was so disappointed in the Christmas tree this year I didn’t even take pictures by it. Why would such a traditional hotel decide to put there tree upside down???
Hotel Del is a grand hotel, it has a cape cod style that is unique to San Diego or even the west coast. It has been an institution in San Diego for decades, and it's age does show. The hotel s ballrooms are showing their age as do many parts of the interior. Food is above average both catering as well as restaurant. Overall it is a nice place slightly overpriced, but makes up for it by having amazing beaches directly adjacent to the property, sunset views are amazing. If u are looking for class, historical, dowdy this is ur spot.
Didn't stay here but walked around for a while and honestly it is worth the $5 for parking. Really fits the SD-vibe from an outsider's perspective. Most buildings this old with this much wood burned to the ground. It's a beautiful building without being undesirably too perfect, if you feel me. An HP annual private event was going on. I bet this place always has some sort of event going on due to location and grandeur. Lots of amenities on site.
Visited Hotel del Coronado over Thanksgiving weekend. It's truly a historical site with amazing amenities. They have an outdoor ice rink! Multiple restaurants with good food, gift shops, and even set up fire pits on the beach after dark! It's worth seeing if you're in the area. My only word of warning is that if you park on site without staying at the hotel, it will cost $30 unless you get your parking ticket validated by aowndiv
