Overview

Outdoor Pool at Glorietta Bay InnPatio Entrance at Glorietta Bay Inn

Just across the bay from San Diego is Coronado Island, a beloved destination with sparkling, sandy beaches, historic mansions, quaint shops, and fabulous restaurants. It’s also where you’ll find Glorietta Bay Inn, the former home of sugar baron John D. Spreckels. What was once a sprawling estate, situated right across the street from the iconic Hotel Del Coronado, is now a boutique hotel featuring eleven rooms and suites in the original mansion and 89 modern rooms and suites in the newer wings.

Not only has the inn been meticulously remodeled to retain its original grandeur, but it also has your every comfort in mind. The main house has been updated with elegant furnishings and private baths in each room, and even the outdoor verandah, grand staircase, brass cage elevator, and music room complete with baby grand piano retain their opulent charm.

Local Tips
Coronado Vacation
The hotel is located across from historic Hotel Del & Coronado Beach.

When you enter your room, you may be surprised by the tasteful coastal chic design with rich textures and soothing neutral colors. Some of the contemporary rooms have a private patio or balcony and a bay view which is also shared by several rooms in the mansion. You can relax in a plush bathrobe, schedule an in-room massage, or just take a quick nap between activities. It’s the perfect spot for you to unwind after a business meeting or day on the beach.

The hotel prides itself on not charging resort fees yet offering more amenities than you may expect. Continental breakfast is provided daily during your stay as are delightful afternoon refreshments. Complimentary Wi-Fi is available throughout the property, and you can even make use of the chairs, umbrellas, towels, and sand toys when you visit Coronado Beach. The hotel has direct access to the beach, just a short walk away, or you can choose to lounge poolside, take a soak in the hot tub, or test your skills at the mini-golf course instead.

Glorietta Bay Inn is also happy to assist you with your business needs or special occasions during your stay. The staff can help you plan small meetings and corporate retreats as well as arrange family gatherings. The hotel is conveniently located near the main shopping and dining district on Coronado Island, and of course, you have all of San Diego at your feet when you want to experience more of what this area of So Cal has to offer.
