Last Minute Decision

Salisbury, Massachusetts

We were originally booked to stay at the Marriott resort in Coronado, but due to poor service and our room not being ready, we wandered down to town and onto the Hotel Del Coronado. Once there, we discovered we had made a mistake planning to stay at the Marriott. While more expensive, the room was a much better option and the resort offerings far superior. The hotel staff were great at our last minute request and price was actually about 20% lower than any online discount booking program. That was a pleasant surprise. I am a long time Marriott Rewards Platinum member, but this was the choice we made and glad we did. Location was better than Marriott’s along with every other factor. Had a great snack of tacos on the beach with Bloody Mary’s while enjoying some corn hole. Dinner in town was great and easy to walk to everything. Next time, this will be our first choice.

Disappointing room location.

Livermore, California

Having driven by and walking through the Del Coronado a few times, we decided to stay for my wife's birthday. We booked a partial ocean view room in the Ocean Tower. Our belief was the this was the large round tower that is part of the hotel that you see in all the pictures and when you are looking at this beautiful hotel. Surprise! It's not! It's another building which is a three minute walk down the beachfront form the actual hotel. It looks like it was a former hotel bought by Hilton and then combined with the Del Coronado property. Also, massive construction is going on everywhere around the property with no disclosure on the web site or when we booked the room. We spent nearly $500 to check in at the Del Coronado lobby, and then have a room in a completely different building. We felt ripped off and that we had not stayed at the actual Del Coronado at all, which was the whole idea of the trip. Between the massive construction that was not mentioned and the misleading name of this remote building being called 'the Ocean Town', we felt very mislead and disappointed with our stay. We still feel like we haven't stayed at the Del Coronado.
