Significance: The Hotel Del Coronado, designed by James W. and Merrit Reid, in 1887, stands as a monument to luxurious resort guesting of the past and present. The hotel has hosted many notable guests including six United States Presidents and Edward VIII, then the Prince of Wales. / The last remaining extravagantly conceived seaside resort hotel in southern California, the Hotel Del Coronado, designed by James W. and Merritt Reid in 1887, stands as a monument to luxurious resort guesting of the past and present. Its massive bulk and active silhouette have made the hotel a Coronado landmark for three quarters of a century. The hotel still fulfills the desire of its promoter, Mr. Elisha Babcock, who instructed the architects to "build a house that people will want to come to long after we are gone."
