Hidden gem!

by written on March 24, 2014

Built by Elisha Babcock in 1902 to be her retirement mansion, but by the 1930's it was converted into a hotel. What is unique about this place is the courtyards and how each of the rooms are tucked upstairs for privacy. The hotel is within walking distance of shops, restaurants, The Del and beaches. A great location.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at El Cordova. The only sour note was the way they handled their policy that they don't make restaurant reservations for guests. [apparently at the request of local restaurants] Otherwise the ambience and the service were just fine. Most guests walk through the courtyard to get to their rooms.

Unique Quality: The hotelrooms ring a courtyard along with a number of shops and Miguel's Cucina, a popular Mexican restaurant. We has a one bedroom suite furnished in basic southwest -- the small bathroom was the star with its tiles and carefully folded towels! The foldout bed served our young traveling companion and we were very happy with our room that overlooked a residential alley. While we didn't use the kitchen it was nice to be able to store cold drinks in the refrigerator and to get breakfast at a local cafe and bring it back to the room.

Directions: Right opposite "The Del" -- down the street from the Irish Pub :)

I haven't stayed here but know a few people who have and they just love it. I have shopped at the surrounding stores and one of my favorite restaurants is past the arch behind the hotel. Actually, it seems that part of the restaurant and the lobby of the hotel share a space.

I think it's a two or three star hotel, but there is a charm about it that I've always liked. It is set in the midst of a Spanish/Mexican style group of shops and restaurants and seems more European to me.

Summer prices start at $119.00 per night for a standard room and go up to $395.00 for a suite. The prices may go up as the years pass, but considering it is just across the street from the Hotel Del Coronado, it is much more affordable for many of us.

Unique Quality: In 1902, El Cordova was built, architecturally, in the Spanish style as a countryside mansion and by 1930 had been converted into a hotel. Over the years it has been restored and preserved to maintain it's charm and beauty.

Surrounding the hotel are arched walkways a lovely courtyard as well as shops and one of my favorite Mexican restaurants, Miguel's Cocina with thatched covered patio dining.

This hotel is located at the south end of Orange Avenue. Across the street is the Hotel Del Coronado, and a block west is the Pacific Ocean. For those not using a car to get around, there is a bus stop near the front entrance of El Cordova.*
