Looking for an overdose of pristine ocean water’s view? Dreaming of sophisticated grandeur? If that is you, choose the beachfront Hotel del Coronado for your vacation in San Diego. The Del or Hotel Del, as it is usually known, is an American gem that has beautifully transcended time. Located just across the San Diego Bay, it is a historic beachfront hotel in the city of Coronado and one of the few living examples of an American architectural genre: the wooden Victorian beach resort. Hotel del Coronado is the second largest wooden structure in the United States and was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1977, after being elected California’s Historical Landmark in 1970. Back in 1888, when it opened, The Del was the largest resort hotel in the world. It hosted presidents, royalty and celebrities like Charlie Chaplin, Betty Davis, Madonna, Brad Pitt and Oprah, just to mention a few. So now it’s your turn! Your turn to enjoy the never ending view of the Pacific, swim or water sport in its waters. Two tips? Go for an Ocean View Room, of course, or, for full delight, act as if you live there… book one of the amazing Oceanfront Beach Villas and pretend the house and the ocean to be all yours.
