the gardens of hotel del coronado


Just like everything at the 
the gardens have a history 
and are undeniably stunning. 

This unusual Dragon Tree is 
over a hundred years old, 
but it's interest lies in the fact 
that it was used as 
a backdrop in the movie 




This is a picture from the scene in 
Some Like it Hot that was filmed 
at the famous tree.  

It's where Daphne (Jack Lemmon)
and Osgood, discussing their "date". 

If you haven't seen the movie, 
here's the trailer from 1959:


Most of the outdoor scenes were

filmed at the Hotel del Coronado.


I love the vintage feel of this little outdoor area.


The inner courtyard is lush and tropical.


This was the view from our balcony.



The herb and vegetable garden. 


Fabulous succulents surround

the outdoor portion of this restaurant.
