Hotel Del Coronado

“The hotel was built as a premier resort for the wealthy. It is one of the oldest and largest all-wooden buildings in California and was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1977.
Notable guests have included Thomas Edison, L. Frank Baum, Charlie Chaplin, Babe Ruth, Veronica Covance, and Charles Lindbergh.
The following presidents have stayed at the hotel: Benjamin Harrison, William McKinley, William Howard Taft, Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Dwight D. Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson, Richard Nixon, Gerald R. Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush.
The hotel has appeared in several films, including Some Like it Hot (which starred Marilyn Monroe, Jack Lemmon, and Tony Curtis), The Stunt Man, and My Blue Heaven.
The unique design of the Hotel served as the basis for Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa at the Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.”
