The Hotel Del Coronado is one of my favorite places in San Diego!
The Hotel Del Coronado is one of the most beautiful hotels that I have been to. This place is rich in history and is actually much older than I had thought (around since 1888).
Back in the day Marilyn Monroe did a film here. Other celebrities and presidents have stayed here as well. Interestingly, I also learned the hotel is said to be haunted (by a past guest that committed suicide… Kate Morgan)!
I love to come here as it is very romantic to watch the sunset and grab a drink by the beach.
The parking at the hotel is very expensive. I would suggest that you find a spot on the street nearby.
They have a few shops to visit while you are there:
*Spreckels Sweets and Treats
*The Blue Octopus
Around the holidays, the hotel is gorgeously decorated with a large Christmas tree in the lobby as the focal point. They even have an ice skating rink that is right next to the beach during the holidays.
