The Sentinels of Hotel Del Coronado

March 19, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

When the Hotel Del Coronado opened its doors in 1888 it was the largest luxury resort in the world.  This hotel became the premier destination for Hollywood glamour and high society.  Many motion pictures have been filmed here including the 1959 classic "Some Like it Hot" starring Marilyn Monroe.  The Del is filled with history, a certain flamboyance, and even murder.  There are more than a few hauntings in this resort including that of Kate Morgan.  These film projectors have stood in this room since the turn of the 20th century - and appear as guardians standing ground as great protectors of secrets that have swirled around them.

I was lucky enough to make my way into this projector room and fell in love with their stance - strong and mighty - oh the stories they could tell...
