A landmark in Coronado
Built in 1888, this massive, red-roofed Victorian building -- a National Historic Landmark -- has become an icon of the Coronado peninsula (or island, as locals prefer to call it). It hosted scores of celebrities in the Hollywood Golden Age -- including Charlie Chaplin, Greta Garbo, Clark Gable, and Jimmy Stewart -- and has been a filming location for multiple movies, including Some Like it Hot. Today, many tourists still take a half-day trip to Coronado exclusively to visit the hotel.
Rooms have chic, modern decor, but some are a bit small for the price. The luxurious cottages and villas of the Beach Village, added to the hotel in 2007, have a similar decor style, plus high-end amenities and extra privileges.
In Coronado, a 10-minute drive to downtown San Diego
The hotel is located on Coronado Peninsula (technically an island), across the bay from Downtown San Diego. A two-mile bridge connects the city to this beachside retreat, which is home to restaurants, cafes, seaside bike paths, two golf courses, and several theaters. Some of the best beaches in Southern California are located here, and San Diego’s bustling nightlife, dining, shopping, and cultural attractions are a short drive away.
Rooms are small for the price but tastefully decorated in earth tones. More luxurious options are available at Beach Village at The Del.
Most of the rooms are housed in the historic Victorian building, and feature chic decor. They have a tropical feel, with soft yellow walls and white bedspreads with yellow-, green-, and blue-striped throws.
Rooms start at 200 square feet, and some have full ocean views. The higher-end rooms may include separate living areas, balconies, and pull-out sofas.
Two swimming pools, a fitness center, an expensive spa and numerous boutiques
