Greetings From… Coronado, California

San Diego, California

The Hotel del Coronado

The quintessential American beach hotel, the Hotel del Coronado enjoys an idyllic location on the sandy shores of Coronado, just across the bay from downtown San Diego. Built back in 1888, the Hotel Del is a Victorian architectural marvel. It was the largest resort hotel in the world when it opened, as well as the first hotel to have electric lighting. Known the world over for its unsurpassed luxury, you never know who will be staying under its distinctive red turreted roofs. Presidents, royalty, and celebrities have all been pampered here over the years. For those of us “normal folks,” I suggest grabbing lunch or a cocktail at their casual beachfront restaurant, Sheerwater. Then, sit back, relax, and watch the sun slowly set into the Pacific.
