Hotel Del Coronado named Hotel Del Coronado as one of six legendary, romantic resorts. Their review mentions that Lucy and Desi visited the resort.

Here is an excerpt from the article:

Hotel Del Coronado, San Diego
The Setting: Set on the tiny isle of Coronado and connected to San Diego by bridge, this circa 1888 Victorian seaside resort, familiarly known as the Del, has hosted Hollywood gentry for more than a century. It’s been featured in many films, but most impressively in Marilyn Monroe’s Some Like It Hot.

Famous Couples Who Checked In: Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz reportedly honed their “Ricky and Lucy” personas here; the Duke and Duchess of Windsor -- King Edward VIII, who gave up his throne in 1936 to marry former Coronado divorcee Wallis Simpson -- are said to have met here.
