This brunch is really beyond words. Don't say "no way" when you see the price. It is an experience you will never forget. The brunch is a lovely atmosphere, and incredible room, with phenomenal food and wonderful service. Your alcoholic beverages Bloody Mary Bar, & Mimosa Bar are included. I flew all the way across the country to experience it... More

The Del is definitely the place to go in Coronado. We were there when the hotel was decorated for Christmas. It was so beautiful, the restaurant was fabulous and the beach view is always spectacular. What a lovely experience.

After walking on the beach and taking photos, we enjoyed a delicious breakfast buffet. The crab eggs benedict were remarkable, the pastries and cobblers were wonderful, and the service was excellent. It was a memorable experience.

Probably the most beautiful part of the whole Coronado Hotel, this spectacular display of column-free, wood-paneled space speaks of innumerable fancy occasions and old-world charm. It does get a little loud and echoey, but it makes for vivid memories!

We visited the Crown Room for the Victorian Tea at $50 per person. In what used to be considered an elegant hotel, the overall experience was shockingly poor. The Crown Room's only nod to the holidays was a Christmas tree, lighting in the room was glaringly bright. At the table, I had to have my chipped, slightly stained cup replaced... More

The Crown Room is very special. Large timber domed room, special atmosphere. Ask for a table in the huge bay window, definitely a place e to be seen. Food is wonderful, watch out for typically large portions. Service is excellent.

We had Thanksgiving lunch in the Crown Room. It was served buffet style. The food was plentiful and the choices numerous. The quality was just average at a very expensive cost. The desserts were the best of all the items available. The service was lacking. Our water was never refilled and our attendant was usually hard to locate. We had... More

We stayed at the Del, so had to do Brunch. $93 per person, and yes, the food is endless and varied. Food quality was very good. Bottomless champagne, mimosas, bloody mary's. I had to say, we were disappointed in the taste of the bloody mary's. Needed more spice. There was also beer tasting in the dining room that day, so... More

The historic room is gorgeous! Ask for a table nearby the window and be sure to make a reservation to ensure availability. The food displays are insane. So many selections rom breakfast items to lunch items to the fabulous bloody mary's garnished with a strip of bacon. Manuel was a great waiter. Overall, a great experience though a little pricey...
