The Hotel Del

On Tuesday Janey of Atomic Redhead and I popped to a few more vintage shops before headed to one of my citys most famous landmarks, The Hotel Del Coronado.

(yes this is a shot from a parking lot, what of it?)

This hotel has had a quite a history in its many years. It's hosted presidents, royalty, famous authors, and the Hollywood elite. Due to its proximity to North Island Naval Air Station, it was utilized during WWII as housing. And those of you who are fans of Marilyn Monroe, yes, this is the 'Seminole Ritz' from Some Like it Hot.

We had a great time exploring the grounds of this hotel. Popping in an out of the shops, looking at the victory garden on the grounds, and getting ice cream before jumping in a photo booth.

Have any of you stayed at the Hotel Del before?

Be sure to read Janeys post as well!
