Beloved for more than half a century for its iconic SoCal style and distinction as the only hotel on the beach in Del Mar. Recently transformed in a multimillion-dollar reimagining, the newly named Del Mar Beach Hotel is now a modern boutique retreat boasting 46 elegantly appointed guestrooms and bungalows that celebrate California coastal chic with breezy whites, luxurious Frette linens, light woods and beach-inspired art elements. 

Come join the fun at our refined beachside oasis in the heart of coastal San Diego.

Del Mar Fairgrounds

Just a five-minute drive from our hotel is the world-famous Del Mar Fairgrounds hosting some 350 annual events, including the community’s official kick-off to summer: the San Diego County Fair filled with thrilling rides, food and fun. You’ll also find concerts, art exhibitions, mini golf and a driving range. The Del Mar Racetrack and Thoroughbred Club has been a celebrity playground since 1936, and hosts two seasons of truly fine horse racing. (Fancy hats optional.)
