Hotel del Coronado

1500 Orange Ave. (Glorietta Blvd.) Coronado CA

San Diego's historic seaside gem enjoys an exclusive beachfront setting on the Pacific Ocean.

The historic Hotel del Coronado is a San Diego icon. Famous as the site of Marilyn Monroe's debut in "Some Like It Hot," as well as the place where Wallis Simpson allegedly met the future Duke of Windsor, the James Reid-designed landmark sits directly on the white sands of Coronado Island.

With its Queen Anne architecture and famous red turrets, this 125-year-old grand dame is as gorgeous as ever. All guest rooms have been tastefully renovated with modern cottage-style flair, and there is a 2-bedroom Blue Octopus Family Suite with with bunk beds, a trundle bed and a charming underwater design theme. Amenities are plentiful, beginning with 46-inch HD flat-screen TVs, ESPA bath products, mini-fridges and Keurig coffee makers. Beach Village Suites (up to three bedrooms) come with gourmet kitchens.

The resort includes several pools, boutique shopping, a spa and salon, a fitness center and oceanfront dining venues. 1500 Ocean blends local artisan products with global spices, Sheerwater features a breakfast buffet and kids' menu, and Sun Deck Bar & Grill offers fresh Mexican cuisine. Sunday brunch in the stunning Crown Room is a feast for the senses with carving stations, international dishes, garden fresh salads, omelet stations, charcuterie, a seafood buffet and possibly the best dessert spread in the country.

The only reason to leave the property is to stroll Coronado’s quaint village streets. Back at home base, beach lovers should request rooms in one the ocean towers or California cabanas, while nostalgic guests will prefer accommodations in the Victorian building. While modern in its luxury and comfort quotient, the celebrated hotel invites guests to walk back in time as echoes of the past fill the hallways. Famous guests include Charles Lindbergh, Charlie Chaplin and more than ten U.S. presidents.
