Our room looked like an old holiday inn and smelled musty and smokey. I found all the staff to be extremely rude. I had to interrupt a personal conversation to ask for directions. What a rip off for beach chairs. No discount for hotel guests.
The beach is beautiful with soft sand. The ocean is gorgeous. The original hotel has so much character with the original elevators and wood work. The valet service was quick. The location can't be beat. There is so much to do around the hotel. The staff around the pool was exceptional- food and bar service was quick. Starbucks coffee in the hotel was nice.
Some of the staff members weren't pleasant. For the price having a grumpy concierge that didn't offer suggestions was an aggravation. One of the elevator operators was rude. The food was just okay with expensive prices- not worth it. There were dirty dishes left in hallways for days. The carpet in the Victorian building / main building was visibly dirty and in much need of an over haul. The bath tubs were old. The hotel property itself is over extended on weekends with non hotel guests. Be careful with room choice- resort view is right outside the pool area with lots of noise and no privacy- just horizontal blinds between you and the crowd. The parking lot view is terrible. The Victorian building is nice but is need of serious remodel. You may end of with a view of the roof. Parking is expensive. Overall, the hotel has a great history and has so much potential. It's not worth over $400 per night. I would not stay at this hotel again.
The location and view
The service. Couldnt check in early.
The beach in Coronado delivered a beautiful setting each morning.
For $400/night, I envisioned this historic hotel to be charming but well-appointed. I was assigned a room with a view of trash cans and a parking lot with constant construction noise. The paint was peeling, the furniture was scratched, the upholstery was worn, and the light switches were visibly dirty and smudged. When I politely asked if I could possibly change to a different room, the front desk person acted annoyed and then pointed out that I had purchased a room with no view. Later I checked my reservation, and nowhere did it state "no view." So I guess I was paying for the honor or the prestige of staying at this famous hotel. Additionally, the restaurants and snack bars were ridiculously expensive, and the food quality was also lacking. I think I waited over 20 minutes in line to purchase a cookie at the coffee bar. Although 2 people were working at the coffee bar, they were completely inefficient. And did I mention the ridiculous cost of overnight parking? $38/night! I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.
The Del is a magical place, full of history and old world charm.
Distasteful attempts to modernize the Del were AWFUL - the retro furniture and lighting in the Victorian landmark were an eyesore. The destruction of the reading room off of the lobby for a larger concierge desk was heartbreaking. Opting to play the Beatles and Taylor Swift over Rachmaninoff creating a disjointed atmosphere that was neither romantic and classic nor modern and luxury. I can only hope the new management comes to their sense very quickly and realizes that what makes the Del worth the stay is her unique ability to take people back in time. If you try to make the Del just another modern luxury, she fails to compare to better priced options.
Your booking form told of a "service charge", but hotel refers to this as a "resort charge"---a collection of facilities, charged at $25 per night, whether or not guests used these facilities---first hotel in usa we've stayed where we been charged for not using a service--reception told us that they do not keep track of guest usage--so we were subsidising other guests effectively!!!
I liked the area in general. The hotel experience was relaxing, but overpriced.
location is perfect, facilities are well kept, very impressed by the flowers and the grounds, staff is friendly professional and helpful. All good with the one exception noted below
I did not like the automatic 22% service fee that was attached to room service charges. Personally I like to give my own tips to staff. I felt unconfortable not giving a tip even though I knew about the service charge. I was unsure if the 22% was passed on to staff and added additional funds to ensure the workers were covered.
The charm of a turn of the century (1900's) style of the Hotel del Coronado.
