News for the Hospitality Executive
Coronado, CA –The historic Hotel del Coronado is pleased to announce a dramatic $8 million dollar renovation of its 368 guestrooms and suites in the original 124-year-old Victorian building. Featuring sleek new contemporary furnishings, crisp white linens with cream and gray accents, this California icon has been transformed to define modern luxury while retaining classic elegance and period style.
“As stewards of this national treasure, we are thrilled to unveil these latest enhancements and know that our guests will also share in our excitement,” says Todd Shallan, Vice President and General Manager.
Conceived by Looney & Associates, the design philosophy for the project is softly contemporary with historical and regional references. The goal was to introduce a more current, clean-lined direction without losing the sense of place and beauty for which The Del is known. With subtle, sophisticated elegance as its hallmark, the recreated guestrooms reflect the warm, natural style of the beachfront resort. The calm, soothing palate includes soft lilacs, rich browns and delicate oyster-tinged neutrals, infusing the spaces with a fresh new perspective. The design references the historical relevance of the property with Victorian-era motifs subtly utilized in fabrics, textures, and geometric forms. The new furnishings are constructed of honest, natural materials such as woven leathers and wools, embroidered patterns and woods such as teak and cerused walnut.
The unique guestrooms also feature 42-inch flat screen televisions, upholstered headboards, executive desks with high speed internet access and updated artwork selections that reflect the area’s natural surroundings. Many of the guestrooms include separate seating areas with breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean, Glorietta Bay and picturesque Coronado Island. The renovation, which is slated for completion in March, will meld state-of-the-art amenities and technology with the timeless beauty and charm that the legendary resort embodies.
