Gorgeous room, superior beach, will come back! Worth the money!! Concierge and front desk staff values you as a customer - refreshing. Issue was they closed the pool and beach lounge due to an Event, of course that should have been stated on their website, but appreciated they gave us credits

Hotel's Favorite
Rising up over the Coronado skyline there are two iconic landmarks; the Coronado bridge, which is a marvel of engineering, and Hotel del Coronado. Cooling off on a hot, sunny day, we enjoyed very reasonably priced ($11) beers on the expansive veranda. Great vantage point for people-watching and occasional fly-overs from the naval bases.

landscaping is beautiful and well maintained. We had an oceanfront room in the View building. Room was very nice but housekeeping could do a better job. The grout in the shower had some discoloration and there was a stain in the carpet. No attention to cleaning the balcony. I dropped something behind the bedside table so I pulled it out, there was dirt and a discarded brochere for the Midway. Room furnishings were very nice, nice bathroom but it had bulk shampoo, body wash and conditioner a la Holiday Inn. I'm sure this is for environmental reasons. Housekeeping needs to pay better attention to elevator lobbies and elevator floors. I suspect the hotel has difficulty finding help. As expected food and drink prices, beach chair and umbrella, exercise class prices etc were outrageous as is typical of hotels today. Service was average, nothing special. It's definitely not a Four Seasons, Ritz Carlton or Mandarin Oriental. The location and views are what sell this hotel. BTW, Navy aircraft can be very noisy at times.

The one star is for Carlos in Sheerwater restaurant - he’s fantastic. The other zero stars are for the rest of the hotel. We booked a room (w/ breakfast) in the older Victorian building. The hallways are old and kitschy and smelled of mildew. The room was smaller than some of the bathrooms at hotels in Asia. The bathroom was so small, in fact, the toilet paper holder was attached to the back of the door. If the bed was truly a queen than I must have grown quite a bit on the trip to San Diego. The whole experience was small and dark. On top of it there was a wedding the night we were there, with the music so loud and the bass so pumping that our room vibrated until 1:07am. Thanks for the crappy night’s sleep. While I booked a breakfast included rate o was told the next day that my reservation showed only 1 person/guest for my room despite my wife literally standing next to me when we checked in? An ounce of care from the front desk? None. Rather, pure disdain. So I end up paying an extra $70 on top of the outrageous $700 for the lousy room. Oh, and another $75 to park the car. Bottom line, never, ever again. An historic property turned into a tired, old relic overrun with screaming kids and foreign tourists. Shame on you Hilton.

This is the worst expensive hotel you can waste your time and money on! I think they should close it down and make it a museum, I have a freaking 8 minutes video where I taped myself trying to call from my room to front desk or room service and no one answering, the hotel is filthy, a freaking $800 night where they don’t give you a beach umbrella! Seriously a disaster! It’s a lesson in the worst hospitality you can have, if you’re studying hospitality, you should spend few nights there to learn what not to do!

Although most of the staff were lovely, and the views and outside of the hotel are lovely, this place is a dump. The walls are paper thin. The rooms are tired and need to be gutted and renovated. The bathing products are trash. The bathroom is dark and just gross - we had an hvac drain line dripping (by design) into our shower. There really is no excuse for the condition of this property.

My husband and I have been wanting to stay here a long long time. As our car pulled up to the main entrance it reminded me of the Stanley hotel in Estes Park, lots of white wood and beautiful grounds. As you enter the lobby is rich dark wood with these great ceilings and lovely original wood floors. Hotel staff was fine and because of our Diamond status we received a free upgrade to a partial ocean view.... I was so excited, the late 1800's is my favorite time period so I was loving all it and we were staying in The Victorian part! Then, we got to our room #3460 on the fourth floor.....ugh. the view was great and it was a partial view, but since this is a review, let me tell you what was wrong and what was right. WRONG: 1. Carpet was filthy, like old Vegas gross. 2. Chipped wood and paint like it was from 1890 3. Ripped Curtains...I mean come on.... i know you want to renovate, but this is an easy fix or stop letting tigers stay in the room 4. Broken Curtain Opener....again seriously fix this 5. A/C vent that blares directly onto you head while you sleep. If my husband had a tool we would have flipped the vent so that we could sleep. 6. Outside of our room there was a large square of wall paper that was damaged....and "fixed" with blue painters tape????? 7. Black mold in the water reserve of the Keurig machine......i had to go down to the cafe and spend $6 a cup. 8. Zero continuity on the room design. Furniture was a mishmash of 80's meets mid century modern and it was all beat up. RIGHT: 1. We did get a room upgrade and the view was nice 2. The room was a nice size. 3. Shower was good. 4. The grounds of the property were well maintained. 5. Staff was friendly. Now a quick review of dining, but I will also leave reviews for them individually. Serea: We sat at the bar while we waited for our table and the bartender was very nice. The drinks were fine, but I nothing worth raving about. Next we moved to our table, which was outside and we had a lovely view of the rest of the patio, it was a nice night. All and all it was OK. The octopus was tough and the table side fish was not explained and it wasn't great. The waiter was all over the place with his descriptions and didn't even come back to check on us, the busboy or the runner took our coffee and dessert order and dessert was not great......bottomline I would not come back here for dinner ...because of food quality and service. Sheerwater: We had the brunch on a Saturday and I thought for the price, view and quality it is pricey, but worth it. It is a buffet with serval stations, including omlette, carving, seafood and breakfast items. I thought everything was pretty fresh ane it had a little bit of everything. I had a bagel with a little lox and some prime rib, shrimp and i really enjoyed the red velvet pancakes. The only thing I dont remember seeing was a salad option....it could have been there, but i don't recall seeing it. I would spend the $65 per person for this again and it sits right beside Serea so the view is the same. I also loved our server, he was super sweet and delivered on service. TACOS: On our first day we made our way to the beach and I grabbed a drink at the bar and a shrimp taco....The drink was fine, but the taco was fabulous!!! Beach chairs and service: On Sat. we rented two beach chairs with an umbrella with service.....it was really nice to relax and not have to get up for drinks. This was $50 per person and worth it. On average drinks are $15. The only complaint I had was that the guys who work to supply the chairs start packing them up at around 4 or so and they make a ton of noise so don't plan on sleeping during that time. LEGENDARY TOUR: We loved our tour and learned a lot about the hotel and the surrounding buildings, but she didn't tell us anything about the ghost and I forgot to ask :( FINAL THOUGHTS: I would come here for a drink and a taco, but not to stay or have a nice dinner. San Diego has way too many other options for that to settle at Del Coronado. ....at least staying in the Victorian. We left bummed that it wasn't a better experience.

The room was great, it was a room with a cabana - pool side. The hotel itself is historically and beautiful. The staff wasn’t as efficient as expected for a five star - hotel. The valet never delivered our luggage and the birthday surprise of chocolates and champagne was never delivered. It was disappointing that the service didn’t match the quality of the hotel. Other than that, we enjoyed our stay and didn’t let the lack of service impact our time together as a family. We still celebrated many blessings 🎂🎉

For starters , I never received an automatic upgrade as a Diamond member. I had to physically go to the check in desk to request an upgrade , which was more difficult than being able to going straight to my room with the digital key in the app . This was especially difficult having a 5 month old infant and a long travel day . Although there were complementary upgrades available, I ended up paying for one because of the view I choose. Little did I know that the building , The Views, beach had warning signs up to not enter the water because of a sewage spill. I felt like I was duped . The first room we were in, the mattress was so terrible I hardly slept. I requested a room change and was moved to a nicer room where the mattress was reasonable. The mini fridge however had rust in it , which I normally would have shrugged off but I was storing breast milk in it and it made me uncomfortable. The shower head had algae growing in it . Our room wasn’t serviced the last night so we had no toilet paper or coffee. Our first night we dined at Sheerwater, I had the Ahi tostada which was mediocre at best. Odd smokey flavor , covered up the ahi completely. I never got a chance to tell our server as she didn’t check in with us to see how the food was . For a $250 dinner for 3 adults , I expected higher service level and better food . Portions for breakfast were small , but the food was good . Ice cream at Sundaes was an odd texture , lots of ice and not creamy . The pool was nice , we enjoyed that . And throughout the stay the staff was friendly . The grounds were beautiful . But overall for such a pricey property, much was left to be desired. This felt more like a three star property with 5 star prices .

We expected this hotel to be expensive, and we were right. We stayed in the old part of building for the history, ambiance? We found this on the grounds, and in the lobby but really no where else. Our room had a partial view and a portable AC unit. We could have upgraded to the newer part of hotel for $350 extra per night and decided we won't be in the room that much, so we stayed. Older section is due for gut and remodel. Paint peeling, wall paper peeling, stair hand rails needed repaint, I like painting maybe I should have asked to help. My wife said the hallways reminded her of the movie "The Shinning" The grab and go Deli was quite expensive, go to Vons and you will save a $100 Liked the beach except they had a warning notice of fecal contamination, not sure if this happens all the time or from a recent storm. Will try to book a smaller boutique hotel next time.
