Historic hotel on the Pacific Ocean. How can you go wrong? We had a light lunch at Babcock and Story on the terrace and watched the clouds go by. The "Del" is quite charming but the view is the star of the show. And the town of Coronado is chock-full of interesting shops and little out-of-the-way places. A great time was had by all!

We attended a conference at the Hotel del last week and came a day early to enjoy the weather. We paid an additional premium to stay in an ocean view room in the Ocean Towers complex - the views and sounds were fantastic. The room was very spacious and well appointed. Overall the complex was definitely a resort-like feel even though it is the middle of Coronado. It was also very interesting watching the Navy perform their drills off the coast. The beach is also very enjoyable. Overall a fantastic time.

Room Tip: ask for the ocean view - pay the difference!!

I stayed at the Hotel Del for a conference and I must say it is one of the nicest hotels that I have ever stayed at. We had a suite literally right on the beach with a view of the ocean. The staff was extremely nice and very accommodating to all our needs. I will recommend this hotel to anyone that visits San Diego....and FYI it's haunted which makes your stay even better :)

I recently stayed at this hotel for a conference, but came a day early to enjoy the area. The hotel is right on the beach. Enjoyed both a sunrise & sunset walk on the beach. There is a lot of history at the hotel. Be sure to explore & ride the old elevators.

We stayed in the Cabanas. Our room & bathroom were very large. We had a balcony overlooking the Towers, but could see a sliver of the ocean. We could definitely hear it. The room & bathroom were very clean. There was a refrigerator in the room.

There are several restaurants and great shopping on site at the hotel. Also, there are many other restaurants and shops within walking distance not associated with the hotel.

The conference space was nice as well. Numerous rooms for meetings and the Grand Ballroom for large gathering. All food reserved at the conference was delicious and healthy. Welcoming party and band on the beach was fabulous too!

This hotel knows how to do it right!

hotel del is a wonderful resort for families looking for some california sunshine. the service was excellent. staff members were helpful and very friendly. of course, we all loved the beach and crystal clear heated pool. the kids may remember the historic elevator the most. great food everywhere we dined.

Room Tip: the rooms are not large and they don't all have stunning views of the ocean... but the charm of...

If new and shiney is your thing, go elsewhere. Wood everywhere, old school elevator with a bellman, ghost on the third floor, good amenities. How can you go wrong with a place that has a candy shop on the premises?

Of course the location is silly, one of the best beaches I've been on coupled with an easy walk to downtown Coronado which made the $8 corona feel indulgent . However, looking over the water from the sun deck, catching sight of dolphins cruising the break, really didn't mind the price or feel compelled to walk across the street.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

I stayed at this hotel for just under a week. It is a beautiful complex and despite the age of the hotel, the rooms are modern and in good working order. Due to an unfortunate design flaw in my bathroom, I needed to change rooms. The staff were quite accomodating and allowed me to examine 4 different rooms, before choosing. I had no other difficulties after that point. I do recommend the main building (Victorian)- the lobby and courtyard are beautiful. The views of the entire complex are amazing at night.
The bar has some very unique historical drinks, albeit a bit overpriced. The restaurant Sheerwater serves excellent fresh seafood ... the on-site restaurant Eno Pizza and Wine Bar, is a fun and trendy site- with excellent artisan pizza.

Room Tip: Request the Victorian Building.

Thank you for your kind endorsement. We are pleased that you enjoyed this iconic resort and its dining selections. The 125-year old Victorian building does have its charm. Originally there were about 425 guestrooms and 71 public restrooms. The addition of private restrooms and removal of fireplaces lowered the guestroom count to 368 and ensured that no two rooms are identical. We appreciate your feedback and hope to welcome you back again soon.
