History of L’Auberge Del Mar
Located in the heart of the picturesque coastal village of Del Mar, L’Auberge Del Mar sits on a historic site that was originally home to the Stratford Inn. Opened in 1910, the hotel was a magnet for Hollywood stars during the silent film days. In 1927, the hotel changed its name to Hotel Del Mar and was again a gathering place for celebrities who came for sun, sand and Bing Crosby’s newly opened Del Mar Race Track. During WWII, the hotel closed and became home to soldiers and their families. After the war, it re-opened as a hotel, but never regained the popularity for which it was once known. In 1969, the hotel was torn down and the land stayed vacant until 1989 when it was rebuilt and opened as the Inn L’Auberge. In 2008, the property underwent an extensive renovation and emerged in its current form as the chic and sophisticated L’Auberge Del Mar.
