The Hotel del Coronado, the grand dame of California resorts, is celebrating its 125th anniversary with the publication of a coffee table book.
"Hotel del Coronado History" celebrates the resort's storied past, from its construction and opening in 1888 to its legendary guests such as Charlie Chaplin, Clark Gable and Marilyn Monroe.
There's even the story of Kate Morgan, a beautiful young woman who checked into the hotel in November 1892 and later was found dead on a staircase leading to the beach. Some believe her ghost still resides at the Del.
The book features more than 440 photographs, most of which have never been published, including behind-the-scenes snapshots of Monroe during the filming of "Some Like It Hot" in 1958.
