Rich in history, natural beauty and possessing a charming hacienda atmosphere, El Cordova Hotel was originally built as a retirement mansion house for wealthy industrialist Elisha Babcock in 1902. In 1930 it was converted to a Spanish Village hotel and has been updated and expanded several times since then to provide additional rooms and amenities.
Property & Location
El Cordova offers an informal Spanish garden and courtyard environment, with spacious rooms, suites and an attentive staff to ensure a memorable stay. The rooms are all unique and most offer kitchen facilities. The Hotel sits in the heart of the Village of Coronado, one block or less from the best beaches on the Island. Shopping, restaurants, theatre and recreational activities are within walking distance and the Hotel has four restaurants and twelve boutique shops on site.
The picturesque Coronado Village is bordered by the Pacific Ocean to the South and West, San Diego bay to the North and Glorietta Bay to the East. The majestic Coronado Bridge connects the Village to downtown San Diego while the peninsula known as the Silver Strand provides access to a stretch of more beautiful beaches and the gateway to Mexico by land. Its proximity to San Diego and its many attractions makes Coronado a perfect destination while visiting the San Diego Area.
