"Hotel Del Coronado" Coronado Tip by Phalaenopsis03
Coronado, San Diego: 36 reviews and 96 photos
Located on the charming island of Coronado in San Diego, the Hotel del Coronado is reputed to be one of the country's most beautiful beach resorts. Built in 1888, the Del today offers a contemporary luxury experience. So even if you're unable to occupy a room for even a night (least expensive room can run $235), it's worth a dine at one of its restaurants or possibly even just a gander. I brought my Filipino and Japanese relatives here when I road tripped them to San Diego and they were quite impressed.
And oh yes, if you're at all into hauntings and the like, then the hotel can also serve to quench your fascination for the paranormal as it is popularly rumored to be haunted. Just ask for Kate Morgan's room.
*In 1892, a young woman checked into the Hotel Del Coronado to meet her estranged husband for Thanksgiving. He never arrived to meet her, and a few days later, she was found dead on the hotel steps near the ocean. Since then, guests and staff of the Hotel Del Coronado have noticed strange breezes, ghostly noises and the pale figure of a young lady walking in a black lace dress.
