My husband and I stayed for 3 nights in October with another couple that visits the hotel often. We were astounded by the amazing service and location. If you are looking for the Coronado Island experience in a beautiful setting that's more personal and budget conscious than the Del Coronado, than this is absolutely for you.
The hotel is located directly across the street from the Hotel Del Coronado with beautiful marina views. It is a five minute walk to the beach and five minute walk to the shops and restaurants on Orange Avenue. The hotel's main building is a beautiful historic mansion with lots of charm.
Hotel staff are friendly, super attentive, and exceptionally welcoming. The hotel obviously prides itself on return service which was evident when they greeted our travel companions with a warm "welcome back". The front desk's concierge service is excellent. The concierge made all our dinner reservations complete with thank you gifts like VIP seating and free dessert as return guests of the Glorietta. The included breakfast on the veranda was a great way to start the day and included waffles, hardboiled eggs, cereals, bagels, muffins, juice, and coffee. The swimming pool was warm and a great place to relax.
We stayed in one of the more budget conscious standard rooms rather than in the mansion. The room was very small with a wall mounted air conditioner, however it was very clean with a comfortable bed, nice linens, large flat screen TV, and stereo. If you are looking for a large and luxurious room, you may be better off staying in the mansion. If you are looking for the Coronado experience at a more affordable price, than you will likely be more than satisfied with the standard room. Parking was $10 per night.
Highly recommended as a great way to the get the Coronado experience! We will definitely return.
