Built in 1888, the iconic Hotel Del remains Coronado’s main attraction. It was famously the backdrop to Marilyn Monroe’s film, Some Like it Hot, and Monroe’s image as well pictures of as numerous other famous guests line its halls. There are 757 rooms, beach cottages, spa, shops, pool, and a fine-dining restaurant, 1500 Ocean—which utilizes the hotel’s on-site garden. Fair warning: If you don’t like the idea of tourists wandering the property taking in its Victorian charms, it may not be the right choice for you.

Hotel del Coronado says
The legendary Hotel del Coronado is located on 28 oceanfront acres on Coronado Island. Built in 1888 and designated a National Historic Landmark in 1977, The Del is an American treasure with over 125 years of stories to tell. The Del’s visionary founders, Elisha Babcock and H.L. Story, dreamed of building a seaside resort that would be "the talk of the Western world." Since then, the resort has become a living legend, visited by celebrities, dignitaries and U.S. presidents.

Rated one of the top 10 hotels in the world by USA Today, The Del continues to maintain its rich history while also offering contemporary conveniences such as unique beachfront dining experiences, an award-winning spa, upscale shopping, a variety of recreational activities and the luxurious cottages and villas at Beach Village. The hotel’s spectacular setting, impeccable service and award-winning cuisine also makes it the perfect setting for a fairytale wedding.
