Spirited Halloween Fun in Coronado!

Kate Morgan - Hotel del Coronado

Hotel del Coronado welcomes Halloween guests!

Halloween is creeping ever closer to Coronado. Eerily warm Santa Ana winds are howling and palm trees are swaying with fronds outstretched like willowy skeletal fingers. What’s that I see out of the corner of my eye…an ethereal mist taking ghostly form! Could it be the Hotel del Coronado‘s resident ghost Kate Morgan materializing for some frightfully mischievous fun?

Hotel del Coronado’s Hallo-wine & Spirits Party

Hallo-wine & Spirits party tomorrow at The Del!

I like to think so, as I recently encountered her on an impromptu ghost hunt at the hotel. I’m certain Kate is wandering the resort grounds, waiting to make an appearance at The Del’s 3rd Annual Hallo-wine & Spirits Party this Saturday, October 27!

Starting at 7:00 PM, costumed guests can go grown-up trick or treating and partake in a variety of wine, cheese and gourmet chocolate tastings (courtesy of ENO Wine Bar). The fright fest continues until the witching hour (midnight) with devilishly delicious hors d’oeuvres and dancing to DJ-spun tunes in the Crown Room, plus a costume contest.

Don’t worry if you have a little ghost or goblin (ages 4-12) with you, the Del is throwing them a Halloween Themed Kidtopia party as well.

Date: Saturday, October 27, 2012
Cost: $100 per person (must be 21+), $50 per child for the Kidtopia Party

Reservations: 619.522.8490

Kate Morgan checked in but never checked out of Room 3327.

For more haunting shenanigans, head up to the third floor (if you dare!) and stroll by Kate’s former room #3327. Perhaps you’ll see her ghostly figure adorned in Victorian attire or feel her icy presence in the form of mysterious cold spots (like I did!).

Happy Halloween!

About Robert Arends

I’m a native San Diegan and man of many hats: PR, roadside America traveler/backyard tourist (especially our mountains and Anza-Borrego Desert), photographer (motto: capture the moment!), music fan, sci-fi buff, tiki collector and constant gardener. What would you do on your ideal San Diego day? I would spend the day snorkeling in La Jolla Cove. It’s like swimming in a huge aquarium – Garibaldi fish, lobsters, sea lions, oh my! If you were invisible, where would you go? I’d go surfing in Coronado. I’ve never surfed, but have always wanted to. If I was invisible no one would see me fall (again and again! – LOL). What is your favorite San Diego outdoor activity? Walking the Prado in Balboa Park; feels like I’m in Spain. The architecture is amazing!  I also enjoy hiking Anza-Borrego Desert State Park to see the annual wildflowers and exploring the tidepools at Cabrillo National Monument. Do you prefer burgers and beer or linguine and red wine? Linguine and red wine (wine list, please!), with tableside views of San Diego Bay. Latest music purchases for my iPod/MP3 player are… Magic Man: Paris, Bear Hands: Giants, Capital Cities: I Sold My Bed, But Not My Stereo, Man Man: Head On, London Grammar: Nightcall (Freemasons Remix).

  1. Awww! We missed the fun here! This could be a thrilling yet fun experience for the whole family. Scared of the ghost though but Halloween is just a perfect time for all these. I wonder how does it really feel like staying overnight at room #3327? LOL

  2. Just came back from staying at the Hotel Del Coronado. I was in room 3331 and experienced the Ghost of Kate Morgan. My bathroom light would come on all by itself. I would turn it off and then wake up in the night and it would be on again. Also, I was talking on my cell phone and the hotel phone rang in my room.. I answered it and no one was there. About the third time the phone rang I answered it and heard a faint womans voice that said hello and then the phone went dead.
