“Beautiful Property”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

Was recently at the Loews Coronado for a business conference. The property is on a promontory point in the Coronado Bay. My room had a balcony overlooking the bay looking back toward the Coronado Bay Bridge. At night, the lights of San Diego and the bridge were spectacular. The property is very elegant, and they have a great lounge with a giant screen television in HD. The room was very clean, and the maid service was top notch. A giant bathroom with plenty of counter space. My only complaints, minor at that, was that upon check in I was never provided a "bar key." To access the mini-bar, I had to call room service to obtain the key. Also, the valet brought my car up and I drove off, only to find he had never left the key in the car (new fangled car with push button start does have a downside). The car started beeping five miles down the road that there was no key, which could have led to my being stranded somewhere if I had turned the car off, necessitating a turn around. Just some service type glitches that will probably never happen again. The property is somewhat remote, there will be no walking around here, everything will require a drive. My last complaint is that there is almost no real good restaurant on the property, they do have one overpriced restaurant with very little choice of menu, and the bar lounge has bar food. So, to dine, you really must leave the property. The Gaslamp Quarter has a lot of fun restaurants and bars, which is about a twenty minute drive away.

Room Tip: I would recommend a room at the end of the spokes of the hall, these rooms will be front and center...

Great place. Stayed there for 4 nights. Liked it very much. It was a bit cool to hang out by the pool, but I am sure would be great when the sun is shinning. Great restaurant, bar, lounge area. One minor I would say disadvantage is that it is about 5 miles away from Coronado City and probably over 10 miles from down town San Diego. The hotel has a shuttle that takes you only to downtown Coronado.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We just returned October 24th from a conference that my husband attended. We have found that when you go to a conference it is best to stay in the resort for convenience sake. I don't usually give a less than par rating because I am a kind of a go with the flow type of person, but this resort needs just a bit more work. Our rooms were outdated, though large. we did have a great view of the bay, so we slept with our slider open and enjoyed the sounds of the barges, and boats at night-not too many, and without the door open you didn't hear them. The carpet in the halls needs to be replaced, and elevators, just dirty and that is your first impression.

They did just finish the lobby makeover and it was very nice. We had a rental car so the far distance from town wasn't a problem but without one it would have been hard. The shuttle they have is a minivan, and only will hold 7, and you need to make reservations for it, it does not run continuously, and if it is full, or your meal goes a bit longer you are out of luck.They could upgrade that to a bigger van, or more trips than once a hour, but that means you could leave the resort and their $20 burger lunches if you wanted to....

We stayed at the Del last summer, right on the beach and it is so worth the extra $. The location alone saved us the cost of the room if we wanted to just grab a subway sandwich instead of a real meal.

The pool is a bit small, but the service was always good. I can't say we would choose this for a vacation but for the conference it was fine.

The Loew's Coronado was the site of a small (30) conference, and we couldn't have asked for better service, food, rooms and accommodating by the management and staff! Great places to walk with a marina, close to ocean, sitting on the bay...shuttles available to downtown Coronado. Very updated; parking easy, convenient. Top notch in every category. Recently rennovated as well. We're back this year for our second annual....

Room Tip: A variety of views available...walk the property before choosing. It will be hard to choose!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The resort is beautiful...we had a room with a balcony over looking the bay and the evening lights of the San Diego skyline. It was great. The linens were clean and upscale, the mattress was very comfortable, but the thing that amazed us the most about our stay was the friendly and upbeat customer service. Everyone had a smile and were, as it seemed, just waiting for the opportunity to serve us. Coronado Bay Resort was the perfect place to celebrate or 34th wedding anniversary.

Room Tip: Room with a view of the bay

We stayed at Lowes Cornado for two nights during memorial week in 2012. At the time we got a great price because the resort was undergoing renovations. We traveled with our toddler and they provided a portable crib (not a pack n play like other Hotels provide) which was really comfy for our baby especially since it included a matching sheet and comforter set. The grounds are absolutely beautiful!!! and very fitting for the beauty of Coronado itself. The rooms are nicely decorated. The bathroom seems like its out of a decorating magazine with a separate whirlpool and shower (watch out- the marble floors are slippery). In order to really enjoy the out door grounds I wouldn't recommend not staying in May being that the weather is still very cool (average high temps of low 70 degrees which really is to cold for the beach and just ok for the beautiful pool/jacuzzi even for this NYC blood...lol). The Hotel has several buildings which are interconnected but have individual underground parking and individual elevators. The staff was very attentive. Cons are: parking is expensive and they take advantage of the fact being that you really do need a car to get around because the area is isolated from the town. Also, there really isn't any outside parking areas around the resort. The fridge (or cooler) is packed with drinks and snacks which they charge extra if you use them but because it's packed it didn't leave much room to place milk for our toddler. Lastly, the charge for bottled water in the room is very expensive and I wish that certain things like drinking water would be complimentary for the price of the room (other hotels do this!). We recommend sightseeing the town; we ourselves went to the historical Hotel del Coronado and ate breakfast at nearby "Clayton's Coffee Shop" on Orange Avenue which was delicious...also take a drive to Old Town San Diego they have great Mexican Restaurants (Casa Guadalajara- http://www.casaguadalajara.com which has fresh handmade tortillas and delicious meals accompanied with great decor and Mariachis), Seaport Village shopping, Balboa Park is a gorgeous picture site, San Diego Zoo, Las Americas Premium Outlets (right by the USA-Mexican border) or Sea World...so many things to do around the resort but if you just want to relax this resort is beautiful and the place to do it.

This resort is fabulous, the guest service is excellent and the views are breathtaking. We stayed in a wonderful room on the water and could not have asked for a more relaxing and enjoyable stay. The newly renovated lobby is luxurious and inviting. I would recommend this resort as perfect location not just for a romantic getaway but for families too. The front office staff is very helpful and always professional.
