Hotel del Coronado: The First Hundred Years

Coronado: Hotel del Coronado, 1987. Illustrations. 85 Pages. $14.95 Paperbound.

As part of the celebration of its first century, the Hotel del Coronado has published a commemorative volume. In a large magazine styled format, The Hotel del Coronado: The First Hundred Years features a brief text and a large number of pictures on the history of the resort. Some of the photographs have been hand colored, which gives them the feel of old colored post cards. Although the interspersing of advertisements throughout the text makes for some confusion, the book is still a worthy commemoration of one of the San Diego area’s major attraction’s first century.
