    Overall good stay with some issues along the way
    My stay at the hotel was overall a positive experience. When I first checked in, I noticed the roof in my suite was leaking (A LOT) the whole floor was flooded in the dining area. The hotel quickly moved me to another room which was smaller and not quite as convenient but otherwise fine. I did find a dead cockroach on the floor of the kitchen which was off putting but after traveling all day, I didnt have the energy to complain. You had to go outside and up steps to get to the room. When the rest of my guests arrived, it was pouring rain and the staff didn't offer an umbrella or to carry their luggage up the steep steps. After check in, everything seemed to go fine. If you didnt want your room cleaned, the housekeeping staff would leave a basked of towels, extra coffee, toiletries, etc outside of your room which was nice. They also were quick to bring extra blankets and pillows upon request. Overall my stay was positive and the renovated rooms were nice but there were some issues at check-in that were definitely worth noting. Additionally, the wifi was pretty slow if you are doing more than just casual browsing and the walls are PAPER thin. We could hear ever word of the TV show our neighbor was watching and the loud guests at the mexican restaurant in the courtyard.

    Charming boutique hotel in a fantastic location
    The El Cordova was perfect for our few days on Coronado. Walking distance to the beach and cute shops and restaurants. Fantastic service, spacious room that was comfortable. Great service and helpful with our luggage. We will definitely stay here again!
