We had a fantastic stay at the Hotel Del. Our room, which was in the main part of the hotel, was spacious and beautiful. The service was wonderful. It was relaxing and comfortable to be there with kids, but didn't feel kid-centric at all. We ate on-site and walked downtown to eat as well. Yes, it's expensive, but it didn't feel wasteful or over-the-top. We will definitely be back!

We had a nice 2 day "stay-cation" at the del this past September. After all the high season tourists, and were able to enjoy all the hotel had to offer. We had a junior suite, no view, but plenty of space. Our window looked out onto the delivery area. The room was nice, the bathroom cozy, and the pool was delightful. There was the sandman on the beach who made sand castles which many wedding guests used as backdrops. There were two beach weddings while we were there and we walked to the beach after dinner the first night to encounter the SEALS training on the beach with their huge rubber boats. Highly impressive considering the water was about 64 degrees and they were fully uniformed! Those people totally ROCK! We ad fun walking through the shops at the Del, days on the beach (if you're local bring your beach chairs) and late afternoons by the pool watching the sun set. Always a great time at the Del but bring your wallet.

Room Tip: Our room was 3101. Big, roomy, just don't expect a view. :o)

Beautiful grounds and location, great pool, activities, restaurants. Nice to go from pool to beach. Coronado Island is beautiful , easy to walk to other restaurants. Only down side is the rooms are very small but worth it.

We like to think we have something for everyone—from the historic charm of the Victorian building where no two rooms are alike to the more spacious Ocean Towers and California Cabanas to the luxurious cottages and villas at Beach Village. We hope your travels bring you back our way again.

We were in the SanDiego area for a week and decided to treat ourselves to a night at the Del. It
is indeed an amazing place and we were glad we stayed there. The rooms have been recently renovated and although they are on the small side they are beautifully appointed and give
you all the amenities you could want. We were there on a Monday so only one restaurant was
open for dinner. We were seated on a beautiful patio and the service was excellent but - the
prices are high, the servings are small and our fish was "fishy". Very disappointing! I would stay
there again but I would go into town to eat dinner!

We extended a stay at a convention in San Diego by booking one night at the Del Coronado Hotel. It is on the 1000 places to visit before you die guide book. We left our San Diego Hotel, walked to the Ferry and took it to Coronado Island. From there is was a short walk to the 904 bus and $2.25 each we boarded and were off to the hotel. The hotel is magnificent, the staff is gracious and accommodating; it is a throwback in time.We walked the beaches and enjoyed the perfect weather of Southern California. We enjoyed a $120 lunch overlooking the ocean and an intimate $300 dinner in one of the restaurants.
Our room didn't have a balcony, but there were common balconies off the staircase, but unfortunately no chairs to use to enjoy them.
When you begin to think about the costs, its time to checkout which was our plan all along. Where is the line between "high end" and "price gouging?" The Del Coronado is at that line. What's more, the hotel was being renovated. Several of the grand rooms were shutdown. The smell of fresh paint was everywhere. Several of the courtyards were roped off. None of this was noted on the website or mentioned when the hotel called prior to our visit about making reservations for the spa, restaurants,etc. Perhaps a gift certificate handed out to guests for use at the hotel and its many shops and restaurants would have been a nice gesture for those of use who couldn't experience the full grandeur of this national treasure.

Room Tip: depends on your financial resources.the cottages look like they would be wonderful

The Hotel Del exudes old world charm and grace. Strategically situated on the ocean's edge you are steps from the beautiful sandy beach, restaurants, and shops. The staff at the Del welcomed us in true California Warm style and the hotel restaurant is wonderful.

Historic hotel on the Pacific Ocean. How can you go wrong? We had a light lunch at Babcock and Story on the terrace and watched the clouds go by. The "Del" is quite charming but the view is the star of the show. And the town of Coronado is chock-full of interesting shops and little out-of-the-way places. A great time was had by all!
