About Hotel del Coronado

Built in 1888, The Del’s visionary founders, Elisha Babcock and H.L. Story, dreamed of building a seaside resort that would be “the talk of the Western world.” Over the course of its 125-year history, the iconic Hotel del Coronado has been a magnet to magnificent minds. Dreamers and dignitaries, inventors and entrepreneurs, pioneers and Presidents, have all passed through these doors, inspired by the seaside resort’s architectural grandeur and natural beauty.

Today, the beachfront resort offers gorgeous guestrooms with ocean views, the luxurious cottages and villas at Beach Village, exceptional oceanfront dining, a spa sanctuary and a recreational playground for guests of every age. The enchanting Victorian setting hosts 65,000 square feet of contemporary meeting space with 21st century technology.
