Hotel Del Coronado 18″x24″

Coronado is Spanish for “Crowned”. Some consider this San Diego’s Castle. A great spot to have a staycation with the family if you have an inside connect. According to wiki, “Hotel del Coronado (aka The Del and Hotel Del) is a beachfront luxury hotel in the city of Coronado, just across the San Diego Bay from San Diego, California. It is one of the few surviving examples of an American architectural genre: the wooden Victorian beach resort. It was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1977 and a California Historical Landmark in 1970.”

When it opened in 1888, it was the largest resort hotel in the world. It has hosted presidents, royalty, and other bourgeois cats through the years. Not to say we’re not bourgeois, it’s hard to go back to hamburger helper after having filet mignon but we still fry up the spam with brown sugar when its time to celebrate. The hotel has been featured in numerous movies and books.
