Hotel del Coronado
Designated a national historic landmark in 1977, Hotel del Coronado has played host to a number of notable people, including presidents, celebrities, and dignitaries, over the years. President Franklin D. Roosevelt visited the hotel several times, including for the California Pacific International Exposition in 1935, and Marilyn Monroe filmed Some Like It Hot on the hotel’s beach in 1957. Today, you’ll still get the same service that has attracted the famous to this massive property for more than a century. Rooms come with Keurig coffeemakers, bottled water, and free Wi-Fi. Free summer shuttles whisk guests down Coronado’s main street and continue to the ferry landing. You can even download a hotel app that makes requesting services and planning activities as easy as a few taps. Take a dip in the 80-degree pool, where kids will rejoice over kickboards and water toys, or rent a paddleboard and head to the ocean. Other activity choices abound; consider arranging a bonfire, golf outing, or sailing excursion.

Neighborhood Vibe
While the entertainment options at the Del are seemingly endless, an easy off-grounds excursion is to Coronado Central Beach, located right in front of the property. Take your beach experience a step further and sign up for a yoga class with ocean views thanks to Yoga Loca. For dinner don’t miss out on the views of San Diego’s skyline at Peohe’s, where you’ll find such tropically inspired dishes as Thai coconut-ginger soup and Pacific Island ahi. Another option with memorable vantage points is Candelas on the Bay, which serves modern Mexican fusion fare that ranges from street tacos to filet mignon with grilled poblano peppers.

Coronado

This scenic peninsula is famous for its iconic Victorian red-and-white Hotel del Coronado (aka "Hotel Del"); its clean, scenic beaches; and its extraordinary bridge (extra tall to allow military ships to pass below). Coronado is the home of the U.S. Navy SEALs center and the North Island U.S. Naval Air Station. Make the most of a visit by walking the historic downtown and then exploring its pretty little neighborhoods near the ocean.

Historic hotel on Coronado Island
Although Coronado Island has its own zip code, the island sits right next door to San Diego. The Del Coronado, as the largest wooden structure in the United States, is a destination in itself. This hotel opened in 1888 and has been a playground for many famous movie stars, politicians, and the wealthy elite. Frank Baum, who wrote The Wizard of Oz, wrote most of the story here at the hotel and was featured in the Marilyn Monroe movie Some Like It Hot. One of the bottom floors houses a little museum that shows the history of the hotel. There's a menu from when the hotel first opened, and the menu looks gastronomically dull until you realize that canned peaches back then were a true luxury. I've never stayed here, but this is a great place to come for a couple of drinks and a pastry or a meal on the back patio.

Hotel Del Coronado
Amazing historical hotel on Coronado. Sight of the movie 'Some like it Hot' with Marilyn Monroe. This is a great place to stay when coming to San Diego with a great beach right outside. There are shops and restaurants located inside. Prices are not that steep average $4 for a coffee. The only negatives for staying here is the fact that you are secluded to Coronado unless you have a car or expect to pay min. Of $50 cab fare to get anywhere else

Taking in the sunset
I spent two days in the fabled Hotel Del Coronado near San Diego and fell in love with the beach. It was one of the most incredible sunsets, in part because of the activity that was going on behind me at the time. My stay at the hotel was a splurge - I would recommend checking out the hotel, even if you can't afford to stay there. They have areas that non-guests can visit and the beach is right behind the hotel (public beach). The sand glistens as the sun catches what seem like little specks of gold. It's truly a magical place.

A moment of peace
Sunset at the beach behind the Hotel del Coronado is unforgettable. Every time I look at this picture, it makes me smile. Tijuana, Mexico is only a few miles away in the other direction. Grab a snack at the hotel (parts are open to the public) and then sit on the beach and watch the world melt away. If you can, spend a night at the hotel, but ask to stay in the old section; there are views of the courtyard and a supposed ghost roaming the halls.

There's something in the water
As you walk along the beach behind the Hotel Del Coronado, you can see little flecks of gold, shimmering in the sunlight. The sand sparkles - I've never seen anything like it before.
