The Iconic Hotel del Coronado Celebrates its 130th Anniversary!

By Elegant Resorts Travel Experts

Posted: 08 February 2018

Glamour and Nostalgia is alive and well at The Del!

A distinct California landmark with red turrets and a distinguished past, this indelible beachfront resort has embodied the essence of the enviable coastal lifestyle and has shined with timeless appeal since 1888. A famous seaside backdrop, Hotel del Coronado sets the scene for any stay in the Golden State, boasting year-round sunshine, spectacular sunsets, fabulous facilities and delectable cuisine.

This remarkable resort, plus world-class haven for hospitality, has long held a close connection with Hollywood and over the years has welcomed a host of silver screen celebrities to its shores. From the early days of film, with stars such as Errol Flynn, Mary Pickford and Charlie Chaplin, to the legendary Marilyn Monroe, who famously starred in ‘Some Like it Hot’, which was partly filmed on the hotel’s own beachfront, right through to today’s contemporary celebrities, glamour is very much alive and well at The Del!

With world-class beaches, ideal weather and its proximity to Hollywood, Beverly Hills and San Diego, it remains a favourite spot for the rich and famous to relax in style. The privacy of the island setting, the relaxed beauty and endearing seaside charm form just part of the story, however. From yoga on the beach, to beach spin, painting by the sea, the spa, beauty salon and the fitness centre to the signature 1500 Ocean restaurant, Windsor Lawn and vintage Crown Room — there are many attractions and activities both traditional and new.

Whether guests choose to stay within the vintage glory of the Victoria Building or the spacious and modern Ocean Towers, or retreat to the luxurious Beach Village at The Del, the coastal vibe and spirit of Southern California remains. From a gourmet brunch at The Crown Room, to sipping Paloma Fizz or craft cocktails at the Sunset Bar overlooking the Pacific Ocean at sunset, or dining at Sheerwater and devouring fresh local seafood, whilst admiring the coastal views — there is plenty to savour at Hotel del Coronado. For a lively and high-spirited taste of The Del, The Babcock & Story Bar is the place to enjoy craft beer, tempting platters and engaging live music performances.

Celebrating 130 Years of such a Grand American Beach Resort is no small feat, so with a calendar full of special events for the year ahead, 2018 promises to both honour the history and celebrate the present of this eternal attraction — in true Californian style. From a spectacular Icons And Masters Anniversary Gala Dinner on the 17th February, with five of the nation’s French Master Chefs creating a vintage-inspired five-course menu — plus featuring a gallery preview of iconic stars through the lens of celebrity, John Russo — accompanied by a multi-piece orchestra, to a community beach celebration with Champagne and fireworks on the actual anniversary date on 19th February, the year is starting with a birthday bang! Where else could you dine amongst a sepia of past glitterati, be surrounded by vintage furnishings and indulge in traditional Californian hospitality? The atmosphere is bound to be as warm as the sunshine and as classic as the famous postcard views.

If you would like to experience The Del’s timeless attraction for yourself and stay within a Californian landmark, there has never been a better year to do so! Join in the 130th celebrations and embrace the glamour, savour the festivities and toast a legendary Californian star! To bathe in the sunshine and bask in the reflective glory of this iconic resort, during its special birthday year, please call our expert Travel Consultants now.
