The Grand Dame - Hotel Del Coronado
Hotel Del Coronado is designated as a National Historic Landmark on Coronado Island across the San Diego Bay from Downtown San Diego. It remians the 2nd largest wooden structure in the US.
At the time the hotel was built in 1888, the Hotel Del Coronado was the largest resort hotel in the world,While that designation has been surpassed, it does remain one of the most opulent Victorian beach resorts anywhere.
There is one bit of trivia that that I had discovered first hand. During world war II, the hotel was designated a " wartime casualty station" and unused land around the hotel was set up as a victory garden. There is still to this day a small designated area with a victory garden that still grows vegetables for the hotel's use.
