Christmas in San Diego 2009 Hotel Del Coronado 

San Diego Real Estate Blog

Christmas in San Diego wouldn't be complete without a day at the Hotel Del Coronado. The Hotel Del Coronado located on Coronado Island which is one of the most precious pieces of real estate in San Diego County, always goes all out for the holidays. 2009 was no exception and the Hotel Del was a shining lighthouse in a sea of holiday things to do in San Diego. Parking was $25 at the hotel so we decided to park out on the street which was surprisingly easy to find. Some in our party parked at the hotel and paid the $25 which might seem steep but if you spend the whole day it's well worth it.  

Once we walked onto the hotel grounds the sounds and sights of the holidays were everywhere. The Christmas music from the ice skating rink filled the air and the sight of ice skaters at the beach under the palm trees with the Pacific Ocean in the background was unbelievable. We watched the skaters for a while and then went inside to meet others in our party in the Hotel Del lobby. The lobby was decked out with a huge Christmas Tree and covered with decorations. The lobby itself is impressive with its old world craftsmanship and fine woodwork from an era gone by. It was like stepping back in time 100 years. Once our party arrived we went outside and watched the ice skaters more and then strolled on down to the Coronado Beach.   

It was a warm day in Sunny San Diego and surfers were surfing and even a few swimmers dared to take a dip. I thought of the rest of the country and how most were under snow or way too cold to be out walking around in a T-shirt, shorts and flip flops. Oh well, that's San Diego and how we spend our winters. We went up to the Hotel and ate lunch and were lucky enough to get a seat for all of us overlooking the beach. We spent 4 hours eating, talking and having a great day. Then of course we had to have some Moo Time Ice cream to complete the perfect day.     

It was a great day at the Hotel Del Coronado in San Diego and a Christmas outing we'll never forget. Christmas 2010 we'll be at the Del again. Hope to see you there.

Here are some videos and movies of the Hotel Del Coronado in San Diego California in December 2009.

Hi Dawn - I remember how nice the weather was in Diego when I lived there.  Nothing like it anywhere else.  Best temperate weather in the world.  Wasn't there this Christmas but will be there in 2 weeks on business.  Nice blog post!

We make skating at The Del a New Year's Eve tradition every year! The Del is great year round, but very special at Christmas. Never fallen on the ic-e yet, but my son & bride try to make me fall year after year. I end up helping them off the ice. Great Irish Coffees there too. Great article Dawn-hope you shut your phone off there :)

Dawn, you bring good memories.  I worked at the hotel Del for 3.5 enjoyable years (a long time ago) and planning to visit San Diego (hopefully soon)  just to see the Del again.  Thanks for sharing this one.
