Got the room for 3 nights using amex points of 35K a night. Was traveling with a tween.
Amex said they were going to book us in the Victorian with double beds at a room that was about 300 sf. I was frightened that the room was too small. A buddy of mine also told me that the Victorian had no AC. I called before hand. They laughed at me. They put in AC about 10 years ago.
From reading other TA reviews, I wanted to stay at the Victorian and see if we could get a bigger room.
At the check in. Amex had messed up and we were only going get a queen sized bed in a small room. At no cost, they upgraded us to a room that had a king size bed and a pull out couch. It had to be between 400-500 sf. We had no view but if you looked by the left side, you could see the beach.
It had 2 ceiling fans and a plaza TV. The local think the Del is the only place to stay in the area. The beach was great. The service was great. And everything was pricey (e.g. a hotdog on the beach was $8.50, but wait until you read my review of the cost of a hotdog at the St Regis). The breakfast buffet was about $20 and my wife hated it.
Walking distance to neat shops and restaurants in Coronado. The dog beach is less than a ½ mile away is you walk it by the beach.
The main pool was full. We were disgusted the first day because some little boys spit in the pool in front of their parents. Never made down to the workout room. The deck areas are spectacular. The views are amazing.
We want to come back. Next time we will try the Californian Cabanas.
