Hotel del Coronado Completes $13 Million Renovation

Operators of Hotel del Coronado have completed a two-year, $13 million refurbishment of the historic property, which included renovation of its Beach Village villas and cottages, dining venues, common areas and original Victorian guest rooms.

Officials said the 757-room Coronado hotel’s lobby has been restored “to evoke the turn-of-the-century charm” of the original resort that opened in 1888, with woodwork refinished and a refurbished chandelier and new period-style lighting installed.

The 214 guest rooms in the hotel’s Ocean Towers and its 97 California Cabanas near the swimming pool received a makeover with a Southern California-style beach motif. New family-oriented Blue Dolphin suites were added to Ocean Towers, each with a master king bedroom, sitting parlor, kids’ bedroom, an Xbox gaming system and treasure chest filled with toys.

The hotel’s ENO Artisan Pizzeria & Wine Bar now has an outdoor regulated pizza oven and new sliding glass doors for oceanfront views, with future plans calling for more fire pits and outdoor seating.

Upgrades were also made to the hotel’s Sheerwater & Babcock & Story Bar, including new interior finishes, millwork and furnishings.

The 28-acre Hotel del Coronado was designated a National Historic Monument in 1977 and has undergone several updates in recent years. It is currently majority-owned by New York-based Blackstone Group.
