“We just concluded our American Pistachio Industry 2014 Annual Conference at the Hotel del Coronado, and 99.9% of the comments from our attendees (832 total registered) were extremely positive. The venue is magical, the staff – from sales to catering to reservations – is beyond top notch, accommodating and professional. It’s no wonder The Del has thrived for more than 125 years! We hope to return in the near future.” – Catherine B., American Pistachio Growers

“What’s not to love about The Del? Having worked with a tremendous amount of hotels throughout my career, the Hotel Del remains at the top of the list. It is the perfect venue for my events. From site visit to contract negotiations, to every day planning, to making sure all of my AV needs were met, to final reconciliation. The level of knowledge and commitment to service, (as well as passion) of these and all of The Del’s staff members is unmatched. I wish I could hold all of my meetings at The Del. And I know that my attendees would certainly agree.” – Kirsten G., CTLS Group
