The Victorian Restoration

Coming Spring 2025 Restoring A Treasure

For more than 135 years, Hotel del Coronado has welcomed travelers from all over the world to experience the best of Southern California's coastal lifestyle. The Victorian building is the original, iconic beachfront hotel established in 1888, and is renowned for evoking a bygone era, with a star-studded legacy and magic of nearly two centuries.

After a five-year restoration and revitalization that has touched all areas of the resort, The Del will complete its final phase by Spring 2025: a more than $160 million renovation of the hotel's historic Victorian building.

The resort remains open with accommodations being offered in four neighborhoods, along with the memorable experiences you know and love.

The Project

The revitalization will encompass all Victorian guestrooms, suites and event spaces such as the iconic Crown Room, Coronet Room and Ocean Ballroom as well as the lush garden courtyard and Sheerwater restaurant.

The indoor event spaces began in October 2023 and have a targeted completion date of Spring 2024. The Victorian guestrooms closed in January 2024 and will be completed by Spring 2025. Accommodations will continue to be available in The Del’s other four neighborhoods: The Views, The Cabanas, Beach Village and Shore House.

Preservation & Design

David Marshall of Heritage Architecture & Planning is leading The Victorian guestroom redesign effort with the same vigor and attention to detail that awarded the firm a “Preservation Project of The Year” honor from the Save Our Heritage Organisation, as well as a “Preservation Design Award” from the California Preservation Foundation following their extensive and diligent reconstruction of the hotel’s front porch and lobby areas.

Led by Wimberly Interiors in partnership with WATG’s California architecture studio, the design for the Victorian building celebrates the legacy of the property, ensuring the public areas remain truly Victorian with original finishes remaining intact, but with contemporary design enhancements to bathrooms, furnishing, artwork and state-of-the-art technologies to elevate the level of comfort and luxury.

What Is Open?

From your arrival at the grand main entrance to your days under the sun, all open areas of the resort have been transformed and are ready to welcome you. The beautiful Victorian lobby and shops remain open, as are our dining offerings, pools, beach activities, museum, fitness center, and meeting spaces.

During the reimagination of The Victorian, more than 500 beautifully renovated and brand-new guestrooms and suites continue to be available in The Del’s other four neighborhoods: The Views, The Cabanas, Beach Village and Shore House.
