The Dana is in a perfect location. Right on Mission Bay, next to Sea World, and less than a mile to Mission Beach. The grounds are breathtakingly beautiful, full of lush, tropical foliage and flowers. Unfortunately, the rooms don't come close to matching the pictures displayed on the AARP travel site. The rooms you see are their "Junior Suites," which are significantly more expensive. The majority of the property consists of motel-like rooms dating back to the 1960s. View rooms are anything but -- overlooking a pool area, a garden area, or maybe a glimpse of the marina. The restaurant, however, was very good and the service was excellent. I would still recommend this property, but keep in mind that when you book via AARP, you are most likely not booking the rooms you see depicted in the property's photo gallery.

We booked an ocean view room, not realizing it would in another building and not actually located in the Hotel del Coronado building. Our room was located in an old Marriott building near the hotel. The room was spacious, but did have a lot of dust in the bathroom, which also didn't have a fan making it VERY hot after showering. The shower curtain also had mold on it.
The beds were comfortable. The dining at the hotel is very expensive and we spent $25 on a burger at the Sun Deck, which came with frozen fries and very little flavor for the burger. The food is pretty disappointing. Count on $20 at least for each entrée, and alcohol drinks at $20 a piece.
There were many events going on while we were there making it a great place for people watching. All the staff were very nice, in fact, everyone on Coronado was very nice.

Great location by Powell station and union square. Walkable and hub of transportation services - like the cable cars - which is one of the best ways to see the city :) the room was clean and workers very hospitable - will definitely stay here again
