U.S. News Review

The Grande Dame of Coronado, this red-roofed hotel has overlooked the Pacific from its beachfront locale since 1888. Throughout its history, the storied Hotel del Coronado has been a favorite among traveling presidents, with former presidents Benjamin Harrison, William Taft, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Ronald Reagan, Richard Nixon, Jimmy Carter and Gerald Ford all passing through. Movie stars Charlie Chaplin and Kirk Douglas also paid visits, and the Hotel del Coronado played the backdrop to the feature film "Some Like It Hot" in 1958. More recent guests say that the property's past adds an air of romance (though some feel that the high room rates are the result of reputation rather than experience). Accommodations have been upgraded to include modern amenities such as high-speed Internet and Nintendo Game Cubes, and the property offers visitors access to the on-site spa, two pools and five in-house eateries.
