This is a wonderful gem of an old hotel. The rooms are original but beautiful and very comfortable. The hotel is on the beach, perfect for long beach walks. Having a drink at the Sunset bar is the highlight of the day as you watch the sun go down. The staff are amazing - very friendly and helpful. I highly... More

Have visited several times; drove in anticipating a handicapped parking space. The parking lots are huge and jammed; I did found a space near their new tower but having to walk into the Del is long and difficult; we walked through a "guests only" hallway to avoid all the steps which was fine. However; attempting to return to our vehicle... More

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.

Try the Bloody Mary (they make them with pickled green beans!) rent a beach chair and enjoy the view. Dog beach is close enough to walk to and enjoy the antics of the animals. The houses on... More

We visited Coronado Island while on the trolley tour, got off and spent two hours visiting the area. Stopped first at the Visitors Center which contains the Coronado Historical Assn. Museum. This was a good way to get an introduction to Coronado Island - the history, culture, events. The museum area contained artifacts related to the Hotel Coronado and the... More

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

Perhaps it's worthwhile doing the visitor center's tour. However, just walking the grounds of the Del is much easier on families because it stays outdoors.
