The Timeless Venue
Hotel del Coronado 

This architectural gem is as stunning as it is historical. Towering on the shores of Coronado Beach, Hotel del Coronado is the perfect venue for a wedding by the sea with the beach holding up to 1,500 guests. This iconic hotel takes pride in accommodating its guests as evidenced by the services they provide. These include full catering and alcohol services, firework displays, or romantic skydiving shows upon request, and even wood platforms for the beach if the bride prefers to keep her dress free of sand. And, once the guests have successfully danced the night away, they can retreat to the guestrooms located right on the sand. For a wedding venue that is both elegant and hospitable, the Hotel del Coronado lives up to its worldwide reputation.
