This year marks the 130th anniversary of the iconic Hotel del Coronado. The San Diego landmark, set on one of America’s most popular beaches, opened in 1888 and is celebrating this milestone anniversary with events throughout 2018, beginning in February with a black-tie gala celebrating five French Master Chefs and including an offer to guests for a $130 resort credit with any two-night stay in 2018. Known for creating memories with its recreational seaside activities, award-winning spa and oceanfront dining, this world-renowned resort seamlessly connects her storied past with today’s Southern California coastal lifestyle.
