This is a very nice hotel with clean rooms. I stayed here for 4 nights at a conference and the room was clean and the stay was good. Hotel is very nice and also huge! Beautiful views of the beach Point Loma and the Coronado Islands. You are close to the marina and a fair walk from the ferry over to San Diego. Would be a good place for a romantic getaway.

Stayed: January 2013, traveled on business

We rented one of the villas. it was a 3 bedroom villa and very luxurious. I went with family and we had the best time of our lives. Hung out in the room. The room came equipped with two balconies over seeing the entire ocean. Great place for families and couples. Pools were clean and great part was it wasnt too crowded. Restuarants around the area are expensive, especially if you eat on the resort. the only cheap fast food is a dominos pizza. Make sure to make a reservation at the restuarants because they do get filled up and it is almost impossible to get in without one. Especially on a holiday weekend. They even have an adult only pool which was a plus.

We had a ground level ocean front room that opened to a patio facing the water. The room was spacious but nothing fancy.The view was breath-taking. Food and drinks were spendy but fabulous. Brett, the bartender at the pool makes an awesome Bloody-Mary. Next time we plan to stay in the original part of the hotel.

Staying at the Hotel Del for a conference in February was a wonderful experience. It is a lovely location, and close to the fun of downtown. The hotel is charming. Pluses: location, the beauty of the Pacific, Coronado Island. Minus: service is not five star, and it should be!

Room Tip: The original building is charming and beautiful, but if you want modern, get a tower room!

It is a nice hotel near the beach in San Diego California which I love. Also some say 2 ghosts haunt 2 houses and others confirm that is true so that was fun! The rooms are nice and the location is great.

My Fiance and I visited here for two nights and had a great stay! The brunch on Sunday was the best brunch that either of us have ever had, delicious. We stayed in a suite in the towers and really enjoyed our room. However, next time we stay I think we are going to checkout the original part of the hotel. Would highly recommend and definitely a repeat.

We stayed at the hotel del Coronado for 3 nights. It was a very nice hotel. The lobby was very impressive. The staff was friendly and helpful. We got a standard room with a view of the parking lot. I would recommend upgrading your room to ocean view. We asked for a king sized bed and we were given 2 queens. We were told we had to upgrade our room in order to get a king which was not true since our friends were given a king. The pool was nice and the beach was amazing. Great shopping also. Drinks at the bar were very expensive. I would stay here again, but just make sure you upgrade your room otherwise it's not worth it.
