Be Part of the History of El Cordova Hotel

El Cordova in San Diego Will Surprise You

Rich in history, natural beauty and possessing a charming hacienda atmosphere, El Cordova Hotel was originally built as a retirement mansion 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.

A Touch of Spain

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, theaters and recreational activities are within walking distance, and the hotel is just steps from four restaurants and multiple boutique shops.
