Summary

Significance: The Hotel Del Coronado, designed by James W. and Merrit Reid, in 1887, stands as a monument to luxurious resort guesting of the past and present. The hotel has hosted many notable guests including six United States Presidents and Edward VIII, then the Prince of Wales. The last remaining extravagantly conceived seaside resort hotel in southern California, the Hotel Del Coronado, designed by James W. and Merritt Reid in 1887, stands as a monument to luxurious resort guesting of the past and present. Its massive bulk and active silhouette have made the hotel a Coronado landmark for three quarters of a century. The hotel still fulfills the desire of its promoter, Mr. Elisha Babcock, who instructed the architects to "build a house that people will want to come to long after we are gone."
