HOTEL DEL CORONADO ANNOUNCES COMPLETION OF $8 MILLION
VICTORIAN GUESTROOM RENOVATION
Coronado, CA –The historic Hotel del Coronado is pleased to announce the completion of a dramatic multi-million dollar renovation of its 368 guestrooms and suites in the original 124-year-old Victorian building. This California icon has been transformed to define modern luxury while retaining classic elegance and period style.
“As stewards of this national treasure, we are thrilled to unveil these latest enhancements and know that our guests will also share in our excitement,” says Todd Shallan, vice president and general manager.
Conceived by Looney & Associates, the design is softly contemporary with historical and regional references. With subtle, sophisticated elegance as its hallmark, the recreated guestrooms reflect the warm, natural style of this beachfront resort. The art palette consists of soft creams and grays with pops of cool lilacs, ocean blues and warm peaches, reflecting the colors found in the surrounding Glorietta Bay and Coronado Island environment, infusing the spaces with a fresh new perspective.
The design references the historical relevance of the property with Victorian-era motifs subtly utilized in fabrics, textures, and geometric forms. The new furnishings are constructed of natural materials such as woven leathers and wools, embroidered patterns and woods such as teak and cerused walnut. The sea fan and capiz shell shadowboxes are real framed artifacts. Photography by Jim Laser of antique wooden boats references the history of the property while abstract paintings of the shoreline add a fresh perspective to the timelessness of the ocean view.
The unique guestrooms also feature 42-inch flat screen televisions, upholstered headboards, and executive desks with high speed internet access. Many of the guestrooms include separate seating areas with breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean, Glorietta Bay and picturesque Coronado Island. The renovation melds state-of-the-art amenities and technology with the timeless beauty and charm that the legendary resort embodies.
