Fairmont Hotels & Resorts is delighted to announce that effective today, a preeminent hotel on the U.S. West Coast joins the luxury hotel operator’s global family of hotels and resorts as Fairmont Grand Del Mar. The highly regarded resort is the newest member of a distinctive hotel collection that includes flagship landmarks such as Fairmont San Francisco, The Plaza in New York and The Savoy in London; AAA Five Diamond properties Fairmont Mayakoba in Mexico’s Riviera Maya and Fairmont Scottsdale Princess; and other notable California hotels including Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows, Santa Monica and Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa.

Named TripAdvisor's #1 Luxury Hotel in California in 2014 and a Forbes Travel Guide Five Star Hotel for the fourth consecutive year, Fairmont Grand Del Mar features a 21,000-square-foot spa, which received a Five Star rating from Forbes Travel Guide in 2015; 18-hole Tom Fazio-designed golf course and clubhouse; and six food and beverage venues including Addison, the resort’s Forbes Travel Guide Five Star rated signature restaurant. The resort also boasts boutique shopping outlets, a state-of-the-art fitness center, four swimming pools, two outdoor tennis courts, and 27,000 square feet of meeting space, including a 10,000-square-foot ballroom, ideal for both large and small scale events.

The luxury resort showcases 249 elegantly appointed guestrooms and eight Villas offering 80 fractional ownership opportunities in a unique residential enclave. Thirty-one sumptuous suites, ranging from 1,010 to 2,840 square feet, include a pair of opulent two-bedroom presidential suites with private balconies (expandable to three bedrooms), five one-bedroom specialty suites, 12 luxury one-bedroom suites (expandable to two bedrooms) and 12 executive suites.

Featuring Spanish and French influences and a design reflecting the Mediterranean style of famed American resort architect Addison Mizner, the property is well suited to San Diego’s warm climate and outdoor lifestyle. Exotic style is evoked throughout, with its colorful palette, graceful arched doorways, rotundas, vibrant tile, wood-beamed ceilings, ornate stone and wrought-iron accents, decorative columns, parquet flooring and gracious verandas. Set amidst the Los Peñasquitos Canyon Preserve, the unmatched architecture is a seamless integration of buildings, décor and picturesque landscaping.
