Most rooms and suites offer full kitchen facilities, including a stove-top and cookware for self-catering options. Guests can choose between standard rooms, king rooms, queen rooms, one and two bedroom suites, and grande suites.

Rooms and suites are lavishly furnished and feature flat-screen televisions, coffee makers, spacious tiled bathrooms, air-conditioning, plush bedding, crisp linens, custom bath products, signature mattresses, cozy sitting areas, and a workspace. Large suites and rooms include kitchens, spacious living areas, dining rooms, and sofabeds.

All rooms are kid-friendly. Laundry and room service are available.

Business travelers can utilize the multiple meeting rooms, which boast plenty of space for corporate functions, conferences, and social gatherings.

A hot tub and a large heated outdoor pool are complete with a sundeck and lounge chairs. A spacious courtyard offers space for reading, socializing, and enjoying a cup of coffee.

There is an onsite restaurant which serves upscale Latin-inspired fare. Guests can dine at the multiple nearby dining options, and some favorites are Miguel’s Cocina and Brigantine Seafood & Oyster Bar.

9.4 Excellent
Pros:Such a sweet Spanish style inn. Excellent customer service. Great location. Bed was comfortable. Huge walk in closet. Comfortable suite with kitchenette.
Cons:Kitchenette was not well stocked. Bathroom is small and hard to negotiate. It's a little overpriced.
9.6 Excellent
Pros:El Cordova was in an excellent location near the beach and right off of Orange Ave., the Main Street in Coronado. The shops and restaurants in the El Cordova made it feel less like a hotel and more like an apartment. Our hotel room had a kitchen with stove, fridge, and microwave, which was nice. The bathroom facilities were clean. The building maintained it's old styling, but the inside was updated with modern features. The staff was extremely helpful with transportation and advice for people new to the city.
