Historical Note:

The Hotel del Coronado has been a noted landmark in the history of Coronado and the greater San Diego area since its groundbreaking, and has been a National Historic Landmark since 1977. Beginning with two visionary men, Elijah Babcock and H.L. Story, the mission to build one of the greatest hotel resorts in the world became a reality. Since its opening in 1888, the Hotel del Coronado has become a world-renowned destination. From the use of early cutting edge technologies (such as providing guests with telephone service and electricity), to its ideal atmosphere for entertaining, to its Victorian elegance and charm, the Hotel del Coronado is truly one of a kind. The Hotel del Coronado has touched the lives of most San Diegans, and has attracted numerous notable names throughout the world including Presidents Benjamin Harrison and Richard Nixon, world dignitaries, movie stars, and other world figures such as Charles Lindberg.
The Hotel del Coronado has had a number of owners throughout its history, including Elijah S. Babcock, Hampton Story, John D. Spreckels, John Alessio, and Larry Lawrence. The Coronado Beach Company was created to help fund the construction of the Hotel, and continued to own many of the facilities available to the public after the Hotel was completed, as can be seen in the records of the Hotel del Coronado which detail dealings with services such as waterways to railroads.
The Hotel del Coronado has a rich history from its amazingly quick construction, its illustrious guest list, and its reputation for excellence as a Hotel.

Scope and Contents

Please note that the first fourteen series of this collection are bound volumes. The remaining series consist of boxes of various materials.
The collection is organized into the following series:
I. Bound Correspondence, 1888-1907
The bound correspondence of this collection consists of copies of outgoing letters on onion skin paper and are mostly type written and signed, although a few volumes are almost entirely handwritten. All eighty-nine of the volumes contain a brief index either categorized by recipients’ last name with the corresponding page number, or as many of the later volumes are, by page number with the last name of the letters’ recipients.
The majority of the volumes of bound correspondence are copies of letters from the Hotel del Coronado’s President and Manager, Elijah S. Babcock (1849-1922) and are mostly professional in content, thought there are a few letters which are labeled “personal.” Beginning in 1904, we begin to see letters from the new Manager, Morgan Ross. The bound outgoing correspondence deals with a variety of topics related to the management of the early Hotel del Coronado, including letters to personnel, the early San Diego Water Company, the building of the Otay dam, streetlights, the Coronado ferry, and the Coronado Railway, as well as letters to guests about reservations and Hotel promotion throughout the country.
II. Guest Registers, 1888-1926
These registers are mostly oversized volumes which contain guests’ signatures, dates and room numbers dating from January 29, 1888 through August 23, 1926. These registers vary in appearance as some contain an appendix to other hotels in the United States titled, “American Hotel Register Company’s Hotel Guide” and others contain stamped and guild advertisements from various shops and services in San Diego (for example, “Prof. G.A. Williams, Ladies Hair Dresser, Wig Maker, Manicure, Chiropodist, Face Massage and Steaming, Superfluous Hair Removed by Electricity 859 Fifth Street”). Also included are advertisements for the Ostrich Farm on Coronado beach. Some of the later volumes contain pages of advertisements throughout the sign-in pages.
The earlier registers are under the manager John B. Seghers, Jr. but quickly change to E.S. Babcock and then to Morgan Ross. Volume number 107 contains the signature of the famous Hotel del Coronado ghost, Kate Morgan. She signed in under the name of “Miss Lottie A. Bernard” from Detroit, and was given Room 308 on November 24, 1892. In addition, this register series houses volume 152 which on March 28, 1905 was signed by Henry James (1843-1916), the American writer known for such works as Portrait of a Lady.
III. Room Books, 1888-1905
Exact dates in this series are not always given, as the books are arranged as a large index in alphabetical order by guests’ last name. Each index letter entry has its own time span. Some of these books are almost entirely blank. This series contains the same information as Series II Guest Registers, including name (though not a signature), the check in date, and room number. However, in addition to the above information this series includes detailed descriptions of Hotel expenses, including laundry services, telegram charges and wine. Some of the more famous guest who can be found in this series are Abercrombie and Fitch who were checked in on October of 1890 in volume number 191, each under the corresponding first letter of their last name.
Volume number 193 contains a chart of hotel rates, “The ‘HW’ Hotel Rate Table for sale only by ‘The World Hotel,’ Chicago” on the front pastedown of the book. Volume 198 contains “Southern California Coupons” with hotel rates posted in the front cover. Also some of the books contain handwritten lists of discounts for services allowed to certain special guests, such as boarders. In addition, volume 201 contains newspaper clippings about the train schedule.
IV. Reservation Records, 1901-1910
This series of reservation books has handwritten entries organized in chronological order by dates with guests’ names, number of persons in party, and room preferences, along with notes. Some of these volumes contain an index in the front, though none of them have been filled out.
Volume number 209 contains European postcards and volume 210 on page 203 has evidence of “white-out” to cover ink. Though there are few books in this series, they still provide insight into the daily management of the Hotel.
V. Room Books of Guests’ Hometowns, 1898-1931
This series contains guests’ names, room numbers, hometown and check-in and out dates in a large bound index. Some of the volumes in this series also contain guests’ home address. Volume 216 is organized in alphabetical order by guests’ home state, and volume 217 is organized in alphabetical order by guests’ home city. Each letter in the index has its own date span.
VI. Mail Books, 1900-1932
These mail books are arranged as one large bound index in alphabetical order with dates, guests’ names and addresses or hotel addresses where they can be reached or their mail forwarded to. Of note is that volume 218 contains a book plate in the front cover which reads, “Coronado Stables Rates, In Effect February 18, 1901,” followed by corresponding rates. In addition, there is also a handwritten paper pasted into the front cover with more rates dated “11/23/00” (that it “00” = 1900).
VII. Mailing Lists, 1890-1903
This series contains information on guests’ home addresses. Volumes 221 and 222 are organized in a large index by guests’ last name including guests name, street and number, city, and state. Existing records of the collection note that volume 223 contains doctors’ names which correspond to those found in volume 224, with corresponding page numbers. Volume 224 is organized as a large index and is labeled with: name, street no., city, state, Informant’s name, address, pamphlet, letter, answer letter, and pamphlet again. Of note is that pasted inside the front cover of this volume is an alphabetical list of the first few letters of last names with the corresponding page numbers. Volume 225 is organized much in the same way as volume 224, although there is red ink used for writing the heading letters. Volume 225 also contains a piece of paper pasted at the beginning of the book with directions on how to fill out the blank book.
VIII. Miscellaneous Guest Records, 1893-1931
Volume 226 of this series contains delinquent records of outstanding bills recorded in an index by delinquent’s last name. Volume 227 contains departures and room changes and is organized by date and spans across the page to include room number, departure, and number of persons in party, time, the room from which the guest is changing, a category labeled changes, and the new room number. Volumes 228 and 229 are arranged in chronological order. Of note is that volumes 228 and 229 allow a glimpse in to what foods people were eating at the Hotel del Coronado at the turn of the century as these contain bills for food from grocers which include mushrooms, oatmeal, graham flour, pineapple, turkey, lettuce, spinach, cauliflower, green peas, canned milk, cream, veal, onions, eggs, and powdered sugar. Each grocery list is organized by date and under the name of the grocer.
IX. Boarder’s Ledgers, 1892-1905
These volumes are arranged so that each entry spans across two pages and includes the following information: name, time of arrival, number of room, rates, wine account, telegrams, meals sent to room, fires, sundry accounts, total credit, and remarks. Some of the expenses listed for guests include laundry, drugs and baths as well. Volume 232 contains a paper pasted in the front endpaper which lists various drinks such as Absinthe, Apricot Brandy, Bourbon Whiskey, Egg Lemonade, Gin and Whiskey sours, Horkes Neck Cooler, Orangeade, and Rock & Rye Whiskey with each drink's corresponding price.
X. Room Books of Financial Records, 1904-1953
This series of financial records allows much research on the everyday administration of the Hotel del Coronado, including how the Hotel spent its money, how many hours Hotel personnel worked and how much they were paid, as well as what daily life was like for guests at the Hotel. Volume 238 includes cash receipts of expenses such as board, bar, billiards, slot machines and bath house and volume 239 includes cash register tickets and ticket orders for things such as 25¢ movies, bar orders, and billiards. Volume 233 is a ledger organized by guest name at the top of the page, then by date with a list of numbers and payment types.

Of note is that volume 237 is compiled of a list of vendors including Pacific Laundry Dry Cleaners, and Allen’s Press Clipping, who is responsible for most of the newspaper clippings found in the Hotel del Coronado Collection. Volume 240 is in the form of a large bound index in the front of the volume, although it is almost entirely empty except for one loose leaf with information of slot machines. The rest of the volume is comprised of copies of letters on onion skin paper which provide information on Tent City café and band, as well as Hotel del Coronado “Monthly Statement of Earnings and Expenses.” The cover of this volume is labeled “Statement Reports and Exhibits.”
XI. Miscellany, 1900-1925
