Editor’s Review of Hotel del Coronado

Lisa Meyers McClintick Editor’s Rating 4/5 As the resident grand dame of Southern California's Coronado Island, Hotel del Coronado has a "wow" factor even children can't miss. It hits immediately with its tall red-roofed towers, elegant white verandas and a grand lobby that glitters with chandeliers and dark, rich woodwork. There's even a hand-operated birdcage elevator taking guests up and down the four floors.

Don't worry about little ones feeling out of place in a hotel that has hosted aviator Charles Lindbergh, English royalty and Marilyn Monroe (here to film the comedy classic "Some Like it Hot"). Kids get VIP lanyards at check-in that lead to a scavenger hunt. They also get a schedule for day camps, surf lessons and pool hours, plus tips for kid-friendly meals
... more and treats.

The sprawling beach behind "the Del" beckons immediately with kids of all ages running through the water and sculpting the sand. It often tops lists of the country's best beaches. 'Tweens and teens catch the swells on surfboards and boogie boards, while others go shopping, hang in the teen lounge or spook each other with tales of Kate, the Del's resident ghost who has a few tricks up her Victorian sleeves.

Families fascinated by the military can watch helicopters fly overhead several times a day, spot navy ships in the distance and see special forces occasionally training on the beach or off shore. Jets may also zip across the sky.

Even without the beach as a vast playground, Hotel del Coronado is a destination on its own and one of the most popular stops for San Diego's Old Town Trolley tours. At more than 120 years old, its grandeur endures. That makes it a trip-of-a-lifetime for families enchanted by the charm of generations ago. less

Hotel del Coronado has 679 recently remodeled guest rooms in its historic hotel and Ocean Towers, along with another 78 at the new luxury Beach Village. Together, it's by far the largest property on the island.

It's easy to get disoriented in the long hallways of the historic hotel. They sometimes parallel balconies overlooking the inner courtyard or wind between rooms on either side. Rooms typically have one or two beds, some with full or partial ocean views and patio or balconies. The historic rooms may feature interesting angles and vintage bathroom decor, such as black-and-white tile and pedestal sinks.

The Ocean Towers beachfront high-rise next to the historic hotel was built in the 1970's. It features ... more plenty of balconies for enjoying ocean breezes, views of the Pacific or views of the historic hotel.

California bungalows are especially popular with families because they're conveniently located between the Del's main pool and the ocean. Rooms open up toward the pool, Kidtopia and Vibz lounge or the beach.

In the gated collection of cottages deemed Beach Village, the 78 luxury guestrooms and suites blend seamlessly with the Victorian hotel. This section has its own family pool and infinity pools. Villas have fireplaces and optional balconies and patios and partial or full ocean views. less

To get in a festive holiday mood, we take an annual trip down to Coronado Island. It's a magical time of year next to the Pacific Ocean. Our kid's smile while walking into the historic Hotel del Coronado's lobby admiring the ... more
For the price we paid for our suite, we were grossly disappointed. Due to a mechanical issue with the elevator, we changed rooms after the first night. The second room wasn't much better. The rooms are in need of being updated. ... more
