1906 Lodge Coronado Island (SLH) REVIEW MASTER THREAD

What are your thoughts on this property?

Iíve been looking in the San Diego/Coronado area for awhile and this just popped up when searching via Hyatt and it definitely was not there last month.

From what Iím seeing it definitely should not be a Cat 6. I feel like most SLH properties are very inflated as far as their Category goes. Cash Price is around $200 but Points 25k nightly. I think PH Aviara seems like a better property and better value being a Category 5.

But Iím interested to hear your thoughts on this property

Definitely a property to discuss

Also, way better location than PH Aviara. Besides the Del, Marriott, and Loews, there really isn't much in the way of "chain hotels" on Coronado Island, so this is a strong contender IMO for a place to stay in San Diego if you don't want to be downtown but still stay in the Hyatt system. Coronado is my favorite place to stay in San Diego because of the relaxed pace, so I'll probably be checking this out sometime next year. Come summer months, the 25k points/night might be slightly lower than the typical 2c/p redemption rate that is easy to achieve with WoH, but probably is a better use of points than 95k peak pricing for an old room at the Del.

Across the road from the Hotel Del Coronado (Hilton Curio) - it's a small property, no beach access and on the side with the marina. Looks 'ok' having been past it when I've stayed across the road. Having stayed at the Del a few times, while it gets mixed reviews, I would go for that if you're prepared to go non-Hyatt. It's a lovely old property that has charm (put aside your expectations of service with the front desk) and incredible views if you can get the right room (try and get the room you want before or at check in so some research ahead of time).

The Del is a nice property with a prime location, the only major downside is the rates. Theyíre almost always $500+ a night.

1906 I find frequently around $200, especially these days.

The Del is an iconic historic hotel, supposedly complete with ghost(s). Does the 1906 give any of that feel in a smaller boutique property?

The Del gets horrible reviews these days. It's basically a massive construction site. Definitely coasting on reputation.

We just came back from there and well were disappointed to put it mildly. We booked through Hyatt for 2 nights and checked out after the first night. The property is nice albeit dated and it feels more like AirBnB than a hotel, and it is run like kind of old school inn (things that I remember from travels on a dime in southern US years ago). It is very small which is a plus in our book. Generally, don't expect anything flashy. Suites are big compared to regular hotel rooms. We had large shower, bedroom with bathtub, and office space but w/o separating doors. There was also a balcony which however was not cleaned thoroughly and there were a lot of creepy crawlies in the corners (I have arachnophobia so we did not spend time there). Toiletries are very high quality and not in single use packages which we appreciated. I think location is actually very nice b/c it feels much more quiet than around Hilton Coronado while walk to the beach is still only 5-7 minutes. Unless you really want to be on the beach this feels nicer than Hilton and the hotel is 2-3 times cheaper. Breakfast is included in rates and it is really good. There is also happy hour that we did not partake in. Parking is also included in rate and there is no resort fees; thus no typical hotel scamming here (nice feeling for a change).

Now to the ugly:
(1) we still wear masks b/c we are concerned about the delta variant and experienced Covid death of a close relative. Nobody else was wearing masks, which is fine by the current regulation, however we did not appreciate condescending comments from the staff informing us multiple times that we do not have to wear masks in CA anymore.
(2) hotel does not offer any SLH benefits. Late checkout was important to us given late flight but we were told that they do not offer this despite it being a published benefit. Check out is at 11 am and you are expected to pay $250 if you miss the 11 am mark. This is fine but should be disclosed on Hyatt web page. Knowing this we would not have booked it.
(3) There is no daily housekeeping and you have to request it. We actually explicitly requested that nobody can enter the room w/o our presence. They had window washing during our stay, and they texted us a day before about this and whether they can enter the room. We texted back that they cannot if we are not present in the room. The next day (our 2nd) we came back from sightseeing and walked on outside contractors in our room with fully open doors. We had to do some work during the stay so we had some confidential documents in the room and this was the reason why nobody could enter the room without our physical presence. This of course was a security threat and if they had taken anything from the room or saw any of the documents we could be in a big trouble in our jobs. We were obviously furious with the hotel and decided to leave immediately. We moved to Grand Hyatt for the second night.

We were promised full refund so we'll see if this goes through. EDIT: we got full refund. This is the best they could have remediated the mess so no super hard feeling.

We will obviously never be back.

I'd say that if you are not concerned with security (i.e., not being on workation) and you don't mind a specific attitude then this is an ok place given the price point and prices of surrounding properties. It's good value for money but can also get you fired

Did this property leave the WOH-SLH partnership? I no longer see it in Hyatt's booking channels.
