Hotel del Coronado
With its red-roofed turrets and Victorian-style façade, the Hotel del Coronado is one of San Diego’s most iconic landmarks. Locals affectionately call it "the Del," and it's truly a piece of San Diego's history. The hotel, which dates back to 1888, served as the backdrop for the classic film Some Like It Hot, starring Marilyn Monroe and Jack Lemmon, and has hosted its fair share of celebrities, dignitaries, and presidents over the years. If you believe in ghosts, ask to stay in the Kate Morgan ghost room—legend has it that Morgan has haunted guests since her mysterious death there in 1892.
