If I was to name the things Coronado island is famous for , Hotel del Coronado would be the first one. There aren’t many hotels that having such a a rich and almost legendary history are not only the National Historic Landmark and a big touristic attraction but also a functioning resort.
Some like it Hot was shot on location at the Hotel del Coronado which iconic Victorian architecture made it the perfect backdrop for the film’s 1929 setting(even though according to the plot the events take place in Florida). I think that Some like it hot is one of the best comedies ever made and for sure one of my favorite,so you can guess I was very exited to see the location with my own eyes!
Del is open to public and even not staying at the hotel you can walk around the territory of the hotel, enjoy its beautiful gardens,architecture,restaurants and the beach.It was very convenient since our apartment was cross the road from Del we took a walk there twice a day! The beachfront location also make it kind of a romantic spot where the ocean breeze,exotic plants and Victorian architecture create a very very special atmosphere.
