Huntington surfing championships

A travel blog entry by evansbembo


... placed was bumping as it was holding the US Open surfing championships. You can see why the place is a Mecca for such surf dudes. The event was sponsored by Vans and they had all the staged paraphernalia that goes with it and some great freebies to boot. It's certainly a place for the 20 something's though and not many people of a certain age group. If you are 21 it's one place you should try and get ...

... named Sue Britt. She had several paper tapestry works on display there. Too bad I didn't have the $ to snatch up one of her pieces. She only recently started displaying her work, and if my taste in art is worth anything, I predict that she will go far in the art world.

The San Diego episode of our trip is almost over. I will make a separate post about our Whale Watching tour shortly. Until then, I want ...

Fireworks, Dick Van Dyke and flying fruit

A travel blog entry by seechiken

... Not as many as the day before but was nice to see a few anyway. We took a walk after Having gyros for dinner and while walking past all the beach house rentals at the Hotel Del Coronado we once again saw Dick Van Dyke coming out of one of the beachfront houses. Tod elbowed me and said.. There is Dick again! We then walked past the house where the wizard of oz was written and noticed it looks a lot like the house that lands on the witch in he movie - not sure if that was ...

Golden beaches and smelly sea lions!!

A travel blog entry by sdunat


Day 2 in San Diego. We got an early start, but my inner fat girl needed to be fed before we went exploring, so we ended up at Ortega's Mexican Bistro for burritos. Very yummy!!

After fueling our bodies we were off to Coronado Island (which in my opinion is not really an island, since we only crossed one bridge, drove across the "island" and were back on the mainland... personally I believe it is a peninsula, but that's ...

Four Tickets To Paradise

A travel blog entry by baron_family

... desperate. I had to ask one more time.. “I just wanted to see if I was on the roster. “SIR, PLEASE STAND OVER THERE!” Jeeze… I really hate being “that guy”. I went over and spoke to another traveler. Apparently they do not go off the roll but instead just call for the categories and then the signup date. He called Category 6 and a there was a mad dash to the counter. After ticketing ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel del Coronado

    Loved it!


    I had such a wonderful time here. It is so expensive though, so you have to make sure you get a good room. Last year we went and we had a small room in the Victorian building near the delivery trucks. So you could actually smell the fumes from the trucks and hear all of the loud noise. We've also heard from other couples staying in the same area and they did not sleep all night because they were near a service area, they also complained the room was old and small. I would recommend staying in the Ocean towers - they have larger and newer rooms. The California Cabanas are okay too (also larger and newer rooms than the Victorian building) as long as you are on the 3rd floor (there are only 3 floors in this building). If you stay on the 1st floor close to the pool, it is very damp and you can actually smell the chlorine from the pool. I was not impressed with the pools, they were fairly small and crowded. But you are right on the beach, so you can just hang out there. I also had a massage at the Spa which was wonderful. I can't wait to go again next year!

    Disappointing Del


    My family stayed at the Hotel Del the week of April 14, 2003 for a springbreak vacation. We were so excited after the reviews we had read from other users at the Trip Advisor web site (and other web sites as well). We did not stay in the "main" part of the hotel so I cannot comment on those rooms. We did however stay in the "Towers" and were very disappointed. The Towers are nothing special and in my opinion need to be redecorated. Our room was very outdated and grungy looking, and in need of a serious overhual. Where do I begin......the bedspreads, furniture, carpeting, and peeling wallpaper have seen much better days. Considering how much we paid to stay here, I thought the room should have been better. I have stayed at Amerisuites and Embassy Suites on business and had much better rooms then the Hotel Del. I will say that the hotel grounds and beach are lovely, but not enough to compensate for a lousy room. The front desk wouldn't let us look at the rooms in the main hotel for a comparison when I told them I was more than a little dissatisfied with our room. We ate at two of the restaurants (can't remember which) and again overpriced for the quality of food. I think that they can charge the outragous rates/prices for rooms and food because they are the Hotel Del Coronado.

    Caution re. The Del Coronado


    If planning a stay at The Del, be sure to insist on staying in the main building. Avoid the "California Cabanas" even though they are closer to the beach and the pool.The rooms at the cabanas appear to be straight from a 1960s, cheap, roadside motel. Concrete floors, cinderblock walls in the smelly halls and our rooms were utterly disappointing. There was worn furniture and well used, motel six-style bed linens, no wall art and just none of The Del style that we came for. And the noise: Our rooms were below an open deck and every morning we were awakened by loud, constant scraping as the metal furniture was dragged about on the hard deck above.

    Not as toddler friendly as we were led to believe


    We booked the Hotel Del for a family trip because we had read that it was toddler friendly. My family at the time was me (6.5 months pregnant), my husband and my 2.5 yr old. We arrived around 1:30. My daughter and I were pretty tired from travelling; she fell asleep in the car. We requested an early check-in. We were told not only no early check-in but our room would not be ready by regular check-in. We asked for a quiet place where we could put let her sleep; we were told no such place was available and the lobby was suggested as the best place to wait. Frankly, I did not find this to be friendly or helpful. I have found Westin's to be much more accomodating and much friendlier.

    Coronado Crown Jewel


    This is simply one of the most pleasant experiences at a hotel of anywhere my wife and I have stayed. We stayed for two nights here after two nights at another SD resort and the differences were night and day. This is a place where celebrities stay and you pay a price for it. It is well worth it. If you can afford it, stay in an oceanview room. THE only negative was a constant humm of Naval aircraft flying overhead and landing at the base pretty much next to the hotel property. For the best ice cream you will ever experience, check out the ice cream shop. It is hard to find but it is at the base of the rotunda shape building.

    Awfully crowded


    We spent New Year's at the Del. The hotel itself if

    lovely and the service was excellent. We were surprised to see the bus tours of people coming into the hotel to look around and the enormous crowds in the public areas. I had to wait in line for 5 minutes to use a ladies room after breakfast one morning. I think the hotel should try

    to limit access somewhat more so as not to inconvenience its paying guests. It's a beautiful place and they should try to keep it that way for the people paying a lot of money to stay there.

    Loved the del


    We decided to escape from family duties this year and take care of ourselves. The Hotel del made that easy. the rooms were beautiful and our beach front ocean view room was so relaxing. The food at the del is superb, weather you're looking for a picnic or a gala experience. The Thanksgiving buffet was amazing and we may a family ritual of going to the Crown Room for Thanksgiving. One hint--We found much better rates by booking on-line than calling the hotel.

    Happy Honeymoon at The Del


    We stayed in the Del this September while on honeymoon. We had travelled around the west coast and spent our final 5 days in San Diego. As we had no reservation and there were 2 weddings on we could not get a room in the old building, although the benefit of a 'new' room was a balcony and a great sea view. The staff were fantastic, right from when we checked in until the day we left, they could not do enough for us. When they found out we were on honeymoone (accidentially when the groom lost his ring!) they sent us a bottle of wine on the house each evening for the remainder of our stay. The restaurants were great, night time on the verandahs having dinner was almost on a par with the caribbanean. Already planning the anniversary trip !

    History in an Accomodation


    I am 51 (born 1950). When I was 8 my parents took me on vacation to CA, including 2 year old Disneyland, and the Hotel del Coronado. When I was 44 my wife and I took our children on vacation to CA, including Disneyland and the Hotel del Coronado. My wife couldn't believe I booked us in a hotel with no air conditioning. She was appalled by the $9/day parking. And then she walked inside. The "Del" is one of our most favoritest places. It is unique. It is wonderful. It is astounding. The best time to stay is in the winter months. Have dinner in the Crown Room. Luxuriate. Even if it is 1 night. But don't expect the're staying in an historic structure, and there are some of the spaces and rooms are unusual. But if you can, go for the oceanview outside room. Courtyard rooms are fine if you prefer it quiet. But ultimate everything is first class all the way. Enjoy

    A Part of Me ...


    I can remember going to the Hotel Del Coronado several summers when I was growing up. It always seemed so magical almost as if I were being transformed into a princess for the week! As I grew older, the magic continued. The beach at your doorstep, the sparkling pool with the excellent service, the recreation & tennis... and at that time, the boys in those places too!!! As a young adult I sometimes fled the hectic life in Los Angeles opting for Coronado where I would hide myself away in one of their beautiful old time Victorian rooms in the main hotel, (small, but they could not be more perfect for a sense of the older times and some good sessions of self re-discovery... and having the pampering of the staff, yum! I had my first Long Island Ice Tea there, (super drink, enough for a year for me!). Then the hotel changed to romantic and it's beauty never more precious. I love the nights on the beaches, the food is excellent, the shopping under the main hotel, the grandness of the dining areas and the special way the staff always makes you feel... even the elevator operator, in uniform of course, is a pleasure! (an old wonderful elevator, a taste of yesterday's glamour!) Several presidents have stayed there, I've seen and met a few stars too, who it would seem all agree as I, the hotel and the splendor and the staff and the feelings... they become a part of you to treasure forever...
