    Even if you aren't staying, this place is great for an afternoon, a few drinks, and a lunch or early dinner. Pricey, but worth the opportunity. Even walking through the lobby is a great experience.

    If you are visiting San Diego, you must stop and visit the Del. Beautiful hotel with lots of cool restaurants and speciality shops to see. The beach outside is one of the best in the city.

    You'll be well-attended here. But get dropped off if you're just visiting. Or valet. Or park on the street and let the meter run out. All alternatives are cheaper than hotel Guest Parking.

    It is one of the few surviving examples of an American architectural genre: the wooden Victorian beach resort. It is the second largest wooden structure in the United States.

    Beautiful, historic hotel. Some Like it Hot starring Marilyn Monroe was filmed here. Check out the hallways with pics from the film. Ask for an ocean front room. Pricey rooms, but worth every penny.

    Fabulous architecture, ocean breezes, and scrumptious (albeit pricey) food. What else can you ask for? Rumor has it Frank Baum wrote parts of the Wizard of Oz here.

    "Some Like It Hot," a comedy starring Marilyn Monroe, Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis was filmed at the Hotel del Coronado in 1958.

    Go to the Del Beach cabanas while they set up! You can lay in a cabana for free until they boot you out. Great way to spend 90 minutes with morning coffee, snuggled, watching the ocean. #winning

    I wrote TOH here. Take time to learn the hotels history so you can appreciate the decor. You never pass anyone without a huge smile- enjoying life. Enjoy some So Cal inspired classic rock on the deck.

    I've been coming here since I was a kid. It's probably my favorite hotel on earth. Even if you don't stay, the beach is worth a trip over from San Diego.

    When President Franklin Roosevelt (pictured in the back seat at left) stayed here on October 1, 1935, he flew the presidential flag, making the hotel his official temporary residence.

    It has hosted presidents, royalty, and celebrities through the years. Including president Barack Obama. Check out December nights when they have the ice skating rink on the beach front.

    It costs $20 to park at the hotel for 2 hours. Plus $10 for every extra hour. Or, for 25¢ (or was it two quarters?) you can park for 2 hours using the parking meters across the street. (Bring change.)

    Dine outdoors to breathe in the ocean views - spellbinding. Food was fresh & delicious - service was flawless. Highly recommend.

    The Windsor Cottage belonged to Wallace Smith! She lived in Coronado and later married the future king of England who had to abdicate because she was, well, not a suitable Queen (among other things).

    Nice hotel if you are not staying. Internet is bad and signal drops out, staff cant answer simple questions or requests. Tourists overrun the hotel so you battle through the crowds. Visit dont stay
