I recently attended a conference at the Hotel del Coronado and was introduced to a new level in business accommodations. My room was exceptionally large and all the furnishings appeared brand new. The bathroom was also quite large with a double sink and a wonderful marble-tiled shower. The off-white room colors with the touches of blue, green, and yellow were striking in their simplicity and gave the surroundings an inescapable sense of class. My accommodations also included a lovely private patio that was screened in with many flowering plants. The maid service was superb. After hurrying to a morning meeting and leaving the room in tremendous disarray with an ironing board, bed linens, etc, strewn about the room, I returned a few hours later to discover the room in pristine shape.
The Hotel del Coronado also provided all but one of my meals during this trip. I ate at the Sheerwater Restaurant and Babcock & Story Lounge. The food was delicious in both and the service was impeccable. One of my business associates had numerous dietary restrictions and the staff was very sensitive to their needs. I was greatly impressed with the care that was shown to ensure that this individual was satisfied with their dining experiences. The hotel also catered all our business breakfasts and lunches. The food was well beyond the typical conference fare and included many fresh fruits, vegetables, and seafood that were a welcome site to winter-weary mid-westerners. It was simply delightful to sample so many examples of the famous California cuisine.
Even though this was a business trip, my experience at the Del was the best vacation I have ever had. I felt pampered and indulged the entire time. Despite being on my own, I also could not help but think this was the most romantic hotel I had ever stayed at.
