Hotel Del Coronado



It took 2,000 laborers, mostly immigrant Chinese from the San Francisco Bay area, eleven months to complete the largest all wood building in California. When the first guests were welcomed in 1888, this jewel of the Crown City set a new standard of exceptionalism and enchanment that continues to this day. Publisher Rand McNally considers "The Del" to have "more fame and historical significance than perhaps any hotel in North America."
