Coronado’s 1906 Lodge has been named one of the Top 25 Hotels for Romance in the United States by TripAdvisor’s 2020 Travelers’ Choice Best of the Best awards.
TripAdvisor is hospitality’s leading source of user-generated reviews and each year they pull together all the ratings and experiences that travelers share from across the globe in order to shine a spotlight the very best.
Manager Susan Nelson is delighted to receive this accolade, which is very much in keeping with the 1906 Lodge motto: ‘Where Couples Celebrate’. “Our 17 guest rooms are very much designed with couples in mind – in-room spa tubs ‘big enough for two’, plush spa robes, a cozy fireplace, private balcony or patio, California king bed and luxury linens! We also have a full breakfast with bottomless mimosas, homemade cookies and a daily Wine & Cheese Hour.”
Couples barely need to leave the charming historic property, idyllically positioned on pretty Adella Avenue, but when they do they find themselves just minutes from quality shops, restaurants, galleries and our magnificent beach. The hotel’s loaner beach gear, bikes and golf carts are all complimentary – you can see why they have so many return guests, even locals choose the 1906 Lodge for their StayCation Celebration:
“One special couple booked into The Plunge Garden King Spa Guest Room and became engaged during their stay. They requested the same room for their honeymoon and one year later returned for their anniversary. The groom then surprised his bride with a photo album of their first year as a married couple and on the cover was the photo of the room name plate - as they had indeed taken The Plunge!”
This isn’t the first award for the 1906 Lodge, they have also been honored by the Save Our Heritage Organization with the Renovation Adaptive Reuse Award, received recognition from the American Hotel & Lodging Educational Institute for Guest Service Gold and were named one of the 30 Best Boutique Hotels in America by Business Insider. They also consistently rank in the top two of Coronado hotels on TripAdvisor.
It is interesting to note that just three other California properties were listed alongside the 1906 Lodge in this Most Romantic category, namely Santa Barbara’s Simpson House Inn and Harbor House Inn, and Palm Springs’ Hotel California.
Other further afield properties with unique charm included Land’s End Inn in Provincetown, Massachusetts and The Kehoe House in Savannah, Georgia, with H20 Suites Hotel in Key West, Florida taking the top romantic spot.
But of course our hearts belong to Coronado and the 1906 Lodge!
With so many complimentary treats included, why not treat your loved one to a stay?
