Will always be satisfied when visiting. Many outdoor's events, and looking at the boats coming in, and going out. Visited in 2009, 2012. My dates are not in your travel requests.

Fun to visit, they have some discounted coupons here for some of the San Diego attraction. Small gift shops with some unique selections at a decent price. The is a small museum inside that is kinda fun to browse and only takes 10 minutes or less.

Didn't know Coronado had a tourist center but if you are lucky enough to be on the magical island of Coronado then you are lucky enough. Assuimng that its mere locale makes it a 5 star destination :)

Beautiful hotel and beach! Enjoyed a nice walk through the hotel, seeing the elevator bellman, walking on the beach to see a spectacular sand castle, then dinning with an ocean view!

History rubs shoulders as you walk through the from the beach past elegant bars and restaurants,dark panel wood and glass giving it a real period air.People obviously just go there to have their photographs taken in front with the beach andiet hotel frontage
