The Hotel del Coronado has just emerged from an $8 million renovation.
The project left the exterior of the 124-year-old building intact, but brought its 368 guestrooms and suites changes that include more contemporary furnishings and a new linen design intended to create a more current, clean-lined look without losing the history of the landmark.
According to a Thursday press release, the redesign was conceived by Looney & Associates, which has also led recent redesigns at the Ritz-Carlton in Atlanta, the Westin Riverwalk in San Antonio and at a number of other hotels and resorts across the continental U.S. At the Hotel del, the design team incorporated what it calls soft lilacs, rich browns and “delicate oyster-tinged neutrals” to bring new perspective to the spaces.
But the team stated it maintained the building’s historical relevance with Victorian-era motifs utilized in fabrics and textures, and the new furnishings are constructed of woods such as teak and walnut, blended with other natural materials like woven leathers and wools.
“As stewards of this national treasure, we are thrilled to unveil these latest enhancements and know that our guests will also share in our excitement,” said the hotel’s Vice President and General Manger Todd Shallan in a statement.
