“An outstanding dining experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Our 1st experience at the Hotel Del Coronado was incredible. The ambience was extraordinary with manicured grounds, and marvelous sunset, made for a most extraordinary experience. We chose the outdoor patio. Service was outstanding, friendly, delightful, and attentive. We 1st split a Caesar salad, Then we had grass fed ribeye steak and a lobster for our main course. The salad was very good. The lobster, with risotto was scrumptious and served in a delightful presentation. My steak with truffle butter and roasted carrots was absolutely incredible. We also had delicious spinach side dish. Toasted & buttered French bread, was included. It was one of the best meals we've ever had. We had incredible ice cream at the Moo Time Ice Cream Parlor.

“Overpriced and over hyped”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2014

We tried the much hyped Brunch, but were disappointed. Nothing exceptional about it except the price.

“Pricey, but delicious”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2014 via mobile

I visited the Hotel Del Coronado and stayed for lunch with a colleague. If you can get a table outside do it! The view of the Pacific Ocean/Coronado Beach is amazing. The food is good but expect to pay $20-$50 for a meal, adult beverages run about $15. I would definitely dine in again!

“Unbelievable !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2014

The Sunday Brunch was like nothing you can imagine and the room itself takes your breath away ! You must stay for at the VERY LEAST 2 hours to truly take it all in. 3 would be a better choice.

“Great place for Company / Guests with History, Ghosts, Views and Food...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2014

The Hotel del Coronado is one of the oldest Victoria era Hotels in existence, being built back in the 1880's...With awesome ambiance from the outside to the inside...With its signature red roof, and the Pacific ocean lapping at its doorstep, it is truly a unique place. Walking through the hallways one feels like in 'Alice in Wonderland' with some hallways being big enough to fix a truck through, and others hallways feeling like you have to start squeezing though...The rooms are remarkable, with incredible views...Even reported that there has been ghost sightings of a unsolved murder and Marilyn herself (remember the movie 'Some Like it Hot'? Well, that was shot at this location, along with a few other movies)...With a nice central courtyard, that quite a few of the rooms have balconies that look down upon...

If you have the money? You can even rent out very nice bungalows closer to the beach.

Went to the restaurant when a buffet was offered...Nice selection, good food, and a couple of chefs on hand to fix you some extra items to one's likings...With the sound of the ocean not to far away, and the view was very nice.

If you get a chance and will be in the San Diego area? Then you won't be disappointed with the Hotel del Coronado.
