I live in La Jolla, so this was a short notice stay-cation. El Cordoba next door was sold out and sent me to Glorietta. What a warm welcome we received from the reception agent, Jon Parker. He made us feel so welcome, he was so friendly and we got booked with an arrival gift. Fantastic! We got booked into a...

I am up very early and my husband sleeps an hour or two longer, so tiptoeing to the extra sitting room (although it isn't heated and can be chilly-but the robes they have are quite toasty), making myself a cup of coffee and using the leftover real milk from the milk and really yummy chocolate cookies the night before, was...

Every year we travel with relatives to historic notes across the country for Thanksgiving--this year we chose the Glorietta Bay across from the Del Coronado--we were originally given the outer rooms with a view of the parking lot and were vastly disappointed--upon hearing our displeasure--we were moved to the Mansion Rooms---the staff moved everything for us and had it set...

The beautiful main building belies the plain Jane adjacent buildings. We had booked a bay view king. The room was smallish, but clean. The bed very comfy. The commode and shower were in the same tiny room and it was tricky to close the door if your on the inside. The bay view was so-so, but the traffic noise in...

Our stay here was over a year ago so the posted date will be incorrect. We stayed in a mansion room and it was very nice. Love the location and everything else about this hotel. We have stayed in other top rated spots here but will definitely make this our "go to" while in Coronado this Spring.

Stayed here 1 night following a professional conference (held across the street at Hotel del Coronado). Very friendly staff, cute lobby and original Victorian section. Rest of buildings are not historic but the rooms are cute and well furnished. I had reserved the "snug" room and was provided an upgrade at check in to a slightly larger room. Quiet and...

My husband and I spent a week at the Glorietta Bay Inn, celebrating our 30th anniversary. We had never been to Coronado Island and therefore asked several friends for suggestions as to where to stay. Many of them suggested the Del Coronado. While the Del looked nice, we wanted a boutique hotel with a little more personalized service. We finally...
