The Hotel del Coronado has announced an $8 million renovation of its 368 guestrooms and suites in the original 124-year-old Victorian building.
Conceived by Looney & Associates, the design philosophy for the project is contemporary with historical and regional references, mainly to introduce a more clean-lined direction. Features include a color palette that includes lilacs, browns and oyster-tinged neutrals; designs referencing Victorian-era motifs and geometric forms; and new furnishings constructed of natural materials such as woven leathers and wools, embroidered patterns and woods such as teak and cerused walnut.
The guestrooms also feature 42-inch flat screen TVs, upholstered headboards, executive desks with Internet access, and updated artwork selections. Many of the guestrooms include separate seating areas with views of the Pacific Ocean, Glorietta Bay and the Coronado Island.
The renovation is slated for completion in March.
