Sugar Baron, and one of America’s Great Empire Builders.  Spreckles  organized vast industries, built railways and fleets of steamships.  He owned banks and newspapers; employed tens of thousands of men, and financed and developed endless enterprises.  Finally, Spreckles poured millions upon millions into a bankrupt little village to become the cosmopolitan city of  San Diego.

Hotel: One of California’s finest mid-sized hotels located on an island off the coast of San Diego.

At the turn of the century, John D. Spreckles purchased his dream island. He built this historic mansion as his home in 1908, which was converted into an Inn after his death in 1926.  During his life in the mansion, Spreckles achieved many of his greatest accomplishments.  History was literally made in this establishment.

98 guest rooms, and John Spreckle’s suite, a 985 square foot Penthouse with a private elevator and panoramic view have been beautifully restored and redecorated.  The elegant brass and marble staircase remains the centerpiece of the Inn.  Rooms feature garden or bay views.  Suites and kitchenettes are also available.  Patios/balconies in most locations.

Heated swimming pool, spa pool, rental bicycles, and guided tours of this historic island.  Music Room is available for receptions and business conferences.  Numerous ships, restaurant, tennis courts, waterfront golf, and miles of beautiful white sand beaches nearby.  Daily Continental breakfast, valet and personal laundry service.
