Why Not Take Your Family To Hotel del Coronado This Summer

The Hotel del Coronado is a Southern California destination that any beach lover should experience. The Hotel del Coronado, officially opened its doors to the public on February 19th, 1888. It's a legend resort where movies like, "Some Like It Hot" with Marilyn Monroe were filmed and The Wizard of Oz was written by L. Baum while on vacation at the Hotel del Coronado. It is also known as one of America's most haunted Resorts and the ghost story told is that of it's ghost Kate Morgan, who checked into the hotel in 1892 to meet her estranged husband. He never showed up,and days later she was found dead on the beach from a gunshot wound. Some believe her lost lonely spirit still haunts the hotel, and there have been ghostly cold spots, numerous reports of noises, odd breezes in closed rooms and sightings of more then one ghosts. There are countless articles written on the ghost findings.

On 28 oceanfront acres, Hotel del Coronado is adjacent to Coronado Beach and five miles from downtown San Diego. The hotel completed a $150 million renovation in December 2007, which added cottages, a spa, restaurants, and shops.
