Hotel del Coronado

Since 1888, this Victorian landmark has been a haven for presidents and movie stars alike; choose between modern rooms, original quarters (some with ocean-view balconies), or private cottages framing the beach (Marilyn Monroe’s lodging of choice). This historic hotel evokes an Old World grandeur and ambience unlike anywhere else in San Diego: the famous red-roofed resort sits on the Coronado peninsula's oceanfront, its three expansive buildings occupying over 30 landscaped acres. The restored architecture and opulent decor is stunning, with a timeless air and nostalgic nod to decades gone by. Don’t miss the lobby photos of the hotel’s past guests, which conjure images of women toting delicate parasols and men drinking brandy and smoking cigars in a wood-burnished salon. www.hoteldel.com; www.historichotels.org
