No. 5 Hotel del Coronado

6 of 12

Sepia photographs of bowler-hatted crowds on the boardwalk hang in the lobby of the Hotel del Coronado, attesting to the 120-year-old hotel’s deep history. (Every U.S. president since LBJ has stayed here.) The sprawling Victorian landmark is a California icon; recently the Del added the Beach Village, 78 rooms in 11 oceanside villas that can be configured as two- or three-bedroom units, each with a full kitchen and many with a fire-pit–equipped patio. With its own entrance, the compound feels like a low-key country club, secreted away from the bustle of the main hotel.
