The buffet is one of the best in the country. I don't know of a better one in Southern California. They spare no expense, and cut no corners when it comes to detail. It is outstanding food, beautifully presented.

We spent our morning here for the New Years Day brunch and it was mind-blowing. Custom doughnut stand, seafood, pancakes, Bloody Mary's. You name it, they have it!

I was at the Hotel Del Coronado for business meetings and the Crown Room hosted our breakfast and lunch meals. Very good food with lots of choices and great service. The room itself is spectacular and the views out the window are lovely, too.

I booked Sunday Brunch as a surprise for my wife's birthday. Having driven down from Anaheim (flown in from the UK) we were greeted by the concierge who wrote on our table 'ticket' that it was a birthday celebration. We were then shown to a table in the 'annex' which was quite cold. We asked to move to the main... More

This brunch is really beyond words. Don't say "no way" when you see the price. It is an experience you will never forget. The brunch is a lovely atmosphere, and incredible room, with phenomenal food and wonderful service. Your alcoholic beverages Bloody Mary Bar, & Mimosa Bar are included. I flew all the way across the country to experience it... More

The Del is definitely the place to go in Coronado. We were there when the hotel was decorated for Christmas. It was so beautiful, the restaurant was fabulous and the beach view is always spectacular. What a lovely experience.

After walking on the beach and taking photos, we enjoyed a delicious breakfast buffet. The crab eggs benedict were remarkable, the pastries and cobblers were wonderful, and the service was excellent. It was a memorable experience.

Probably the most beautiful part of the whole Coronado Hotel, this spectacular display of column-free, wood-paneled space speaks of innumerable fancy occasions and old-world charm. It does get a little loud and echoey, but it makes for vivid memories!

We visited the Crown Room for the Victorian Tea at $50 per person. In what used to be considered an elegant hotel, the overall experience was shockingly poor. The Crown Room's only nod to the holidays was a Christmas tree, lighting in the room was glaringly bright. At the table, I had to have my chipped, slightly stained cup replaced... More
