Once Carrie Bradshaw took that first fateful sip of her cosmopolitan on Sex and the City over 15 years ago, the pink concoction became a favorite of the masses. The cosmopolitan, or cosmo as it’s more commonly known, blends vodka, Cointreau or Triple Sec, cranberry juice, and fresh-squeezed lime juice and is usually topped off with a lemon or lime twist. Enjoy one at the Hotel del Coronado for a cosmopolitan experience in more ways than one.
Surf, sun, and miles of sandy beaches are just a few of the crowning jewels that bring visitors to Coronado, California year-round. The Hotel del Coronado is perhaps the brightest gem in that box, having served as the lodging destination for presidents, celebrities, and hundreds of dignitaries in years past. Referred to as "The Del" or "Hotel Del" by locals and built in the Victorian style in 1888, it offers every contemporary convenience in an environment of old-world charm.
Dining destinations at the Hotel Del are often complemented by spectacular ocean views, whether visitors are enjoying a sit-down meal at the elegant 1500 Ocean or enjoying a drink in one of the hotel’s many outdoor settings. When timed right it’s lovely to have a drink while enjoying the sunset from the promenade.
The Hotel del Coronado is found a short drive away from Downtown San Diego and across the Coronado Bay Bridge. More information, including rates and restaurant hours, menus, and locations, is available on the Hotel del Coronado website.
