Family Getaway: Hotel del Coronado
San Diego’s Hotel del Coronado is a fabulous destination for a multi-generational family getaway.
Carol and I have visited the Hotel del Coronado four times. And, two of our visits have been multi-generational getaways.
We first visited the AAA Four-Diamond Hotel del Coronado back in our travel blogger days in 2010.
We love historic properties and continue to visit them whenever we get the chance. And, as much as we loved our visit back in 2010, we felt that the property was beginning to feel a little tired.
However, in 2015, the property was purchased by the deep-pocketed Blackstone Group. And today, the property is in the midst of a $200 million reimagination that is bringing the property up to the expectations of today’s demanding luxury travelers.
And WOW! What a difference a couple hundred million dollars can make.
While still preserving the hotel’s historic charm, we immediately noticed a significant difference. In fact, I’m quite certain that the Hotel del Coronado will be on our go-to list for future getaways with our extended family.
Top 4 Reasons We Love the Hotel Del Coronado for Our Multi-Generational Family Getaways
Social-Distancing at the Hotel del Coronado
As we were traveling during the COVID-19 pandemic, safety for our family was top of mind.
Thankfully, the hotel has limited reservations making social distancing on the beach easily accomplished. You can learn more about that at this link.
Ryan was very comfortable wearing his batman mask during the day, albeit upside down. 🙂
Furthermore, he and grandma found private places on the large beach to make sandcastles.
New Cabana Ocean View Terrace Rooms
While visiting, we enjoyed adjoining Cabana Ocean View Terrace Rooms with a fun fire pit.
These rooms surround The Del’s new pool and offer spectacular beachfront ocean views. For our grandson, this was the cat’s meow. The pool was less than a minute away, and sandcastle heaven was just outside our patio.
These rooms offer 1 king bed with a pull-out sofa or 2 queen beds. The rooms were ample-sized at 400 Sq Ft and featured a large walk-in shower in the bathroom. Furthermore, with all of the patio seating available, we never felt crowded in the room. It was just perfect. Furthermore, when Ryan felt the urge to visit grandma and grandpa, he simply ran from his cabana to ours.
The Del Beach
Besides the historic property and it’s modern luxury amenities, the fabulous Del Beach is certainly a major draw for multi-generational travelers.
While parents and grandparents will enjoy barefoot morning walks on the beach, there is no shortage of fun for grandchildren of all ages.
Plus, as an added benefit, you will enjoy the airshow overhead as jets, helicopters, and other military aircraft cruise overhead preparing to land at the nearby naval base.
Dining at the Hotel del Coronado
The Hotel del Coronado offers its guests eight different dining options.
We enjoyed grab-and-go breakfast sandwiches in the mornings, and fish tacos from the Beach + Taco Shack in the afternoons. And one evening, we enjoyed this fabulous sea-to-table wood-grilled Pacific Striped Bass. It was tender and full of flavor. MAJOR YUM!
Further, to top it all off, we enjoyed a fabulous evening of s’more on the beach! That was a BIG hit with our grandson.
I hope I have convinced you that the Hotel del Coronado is a fabulous destination for a multi-generational family getaway.
