THE ROYAL DEL

Harper’s Bazaar (Australia) - - Escape -

Ho­tel del Coron­ado has hosted many VIPS, in­clud­ing Mar­i­lyn Mon­roe (ex­te­rior shots for Some Like it Hot were filmed here), Thomas Edi­son, Muham­mad Ali, Magic John­son and a long list of US pres­i­dents. But most fas­ci­nat­ing, es­pe­cially for mad fans of The Crown like me, is that Wal­lis Simp­son, the Duchess of Wind­sor, once lived in a cot­tage near the ho­tel. The home, which is now of­fi­cially a part of the ho­tel af­ter it picked up and moved there in 1999, is now aptly named Wind­sor Cot­tage and is open for guests to en­joy a sea­side break­fast buf­fet or cock­tails.
