HOTEL DEL CORONADO ANNOUNCES 3RD ANNUAL
“HALLO-WINE & SPIRITS” PARTY
Saturday, October 27
Coronado, CA —The Hotel del Coronado is world-renowned for its 124-year history of hosting celebrities, presidents and dignitaries from around the world. The legendary resort is almost equally famous for its ghostly visitors, which have reportedly been around for almost as long as the hotel itself. Though supernatural stories abound, most have to do with Kate Morgan, a beautiful young woman who checked into the hotel in 1892 – and never checked out. After spending five lonely and lovesick days waiting for a man who never arrived, Kate was found dead on an exterior staircase leading to the beach. Kate had a gunshot wound to her head, which the San Diego County Coroner later determined was self-inflicted (some skepticism still surrounds this finding). Since then, the hotel has continuously received accounts of strange occurrences: lights and fans that go on and off by themselves, slamming doors, books that fly off shelves, bed covers that are suddenly pulled back by no one, excessive noise coming from the room above (reported by guests on the top floor) and even several sightings of a ghostly figure adorned in Victorian attire.
Celebrate the spookiest holiday of the year at San Diego’s most infamously haunted locale. Don your favorite costume and join us for the 3rd annual, adults-only “Hallo-wine and Spirits” Party. After all, we’ve already got the spirits, all we have to add is the wine!
The fun begins at 7pm in the ghoulishly decorated Garden Patio with grown-up trick-or-treating. Venture from station-to-station and enjoy a variety of wine, cheese and chocolate tastings from ENO and spirits.

Then, progress over to the Crown Room for food and dancing at the ultimate Halloween party. Enjoy heavy hors d’oeuvres at a variety of food stations, a fabulous costume contest plus dancing to your frightful favorites played by our dreadfully delightful DJ. And, keep an eye out for a special guest appearance from Kate Morgan.
Hotel del Coronado’s “Hallo-wine and Spirits” Party is from 7pm to 12am and costs $100 per person (includes tax and gratuity). Must be 21 years or older to attend.
