Why Stay At Hotel del Coronado
Hotel del Coronado is an iconic San Diego-area resort known for its beachside locale, historic architecture, shopping arcade, spa, restaurants, and plush rooms with ocean views.
Celebrating its 125th year in 2013, Hotel del Coronado is a National Historic Landmark that captures Victorian imagination and the enthusiasm of the Gilded Age in its luxury and architecture. While the 679-room resort may be most famous for its spiraling red roofs, it was as the set for the 1959 Marilyn Monroe movie Some Like It Hot that this sprawling resort became a California icon. Today, it still sits on picture-perfect, white-sand Coronado Beach, along San Diego's outer Coronado peninsula, which is a 10-minute taxi-boat ride from downtown. Rooms have contemporary California appeal, with white shutters, mahogany-wood poster beds, and pastel-colored walls. The hotel is home to a world-class spa, as well as three distinct dining experiences. In spring 2013, a gated beach village was added, with 78 rooms in 11 ocean-side villas that can be configured into two- or three-bedroom units with full kitchens.
Take a picnic and walk just five minutes from the hotel to Spreckels Park to dine among the lush lawns, flowers, and historic gazebo bandstand (live concerts take place Sunday evenings during the summer).
Only three blocks away from the hotel you'll find Holland's Bicycles to rent an Electra beach cruiser. Coronado's long, flat pathways are ideal for biking, especially down the scenic Bayshore Bikeway.
$7 per hour or $25 per day.
Arrive at San Diego International Airport (SAN) which is approximately 8 miles from the hotel. Anticipate about 25 minutes of travel time.1500 Orange Avenue, Coronado, California, United States
