Staying at the Hotel del Coronado is like going back in time. The iconic hotel is a Coronado landmark that was built in 1888 and has retained its classic architecture, while the rooms have received makeovers to give them modern, luxury touches. The Hotel del Coronado may be most recognized for its starring role in the 1958 Marilyn Monroe film, Some Like It Hot, which was filmed on site. Today, that classic feel remains with old-fashioned elevators that are manually operated by uniformed bellmen, dark wood walls in the lobby, and those easily identifiable red turrets. In the winter time a massive Christmas tree decorates the lobby and an ice skating rink is set up right on the beach. There is also a swimming pool, spa, fitness center, and shopping area for guests to enjoy. The restaurants at the hotel are some of Coronado’s best, including 1500 Ocean where Chef Brian Sinnott cooks Italian-inspired California cuisine.
