Sometimes the best path forward requires looking back.
This storied hotel has been a favorite of dignitaries, celebrities, royalty and beach-loving vacationers for nearly 130 years. With such a rich history, not only would it have been a shame to leave the iconic Hotel del Coronado’s heritage behind, it would’ve been foolish.
But the challenge facing the KSL Resorts team in the early 2000s wasn’t just restoring the property’s historic charm, it was doing so while also bringing the aging, underperforming asset into the modern era, both operationally and financially.
Our approach? Rather than apply some boilerplate solution, we studied the details and developed a customized strategy to transform the The Del into the finest version of itself.
The cornerstone of the renovation was the luxurious Beach Village at The Del—35 exclusive cottage and villa units (78 keys) with an assortment of upgrades for exceptionally discerning travelers. KSL Resorts designed, entitled and managed the entire process from the complex and challenging California Coastal Commission approvals through construction and its eventual sale.
