X CORONADO ISLAND MARRIOTT

Perched on Coronado Island on a magnificent site overlooking downtown San Diego, this waterside resort is once again a sublime locale for family vacations, banquets, and mid-scale conferences. The grounds and hotel underwent a deep renovation to bring the 30-year-old hotel up to current brand standards. The landscape interventions included the addition of a wedding lawn overlooking the bay and planting, lighting, and irrigation systems upgrades throughout the five-acre site. Strolling paths, bridges, and ponds are home to a large flock of flamingos and the colorful massed plantings celebrate ease and beauty in the aquatic setting.
