El Cordova Hotel
The El Cordova Hotel was originally built in 1902 as a getaway retirement mansion for wealthy industrialist Elisha Babcock. The picturesque Spanish-Hacienda style hotel sits in the heart of Coronado, CA , just one block from the Pacific Ocean and one of the country’s best beaches. Its proximity to San Diego and its many attractions makes El Cordova a perfect destination while visiting the San Diego Area. Located on site in the hotel’s charming Spanish Village atmosphere are 12 boutique shops, a salon and a spa, as well as four signature restaurants and eateries, including Miguel’s and The Brigantine. Guests will find vibrant Old-World touches in the hotel’s 43 rooms, an open courtyard with Spanish-tiled grills, and outdoor swimming pool and spa.
