We just returned from our trip to Loews Coronado. As expected from a Loews, the service was outstanding! The beach shuttle drivers, front desk staff, housekeeping staff, engineering, waitresses, telephone operators, etc. were all amazing! Unfortunately the hotel and amenities didn't equal the service. The property is aging but well kept up.
Room -- Room and bathroom were spacious. Beds and pillows were good. The shower is tiny but there is a large bathtub. Our shower leaked and we constantly had to keep towels on the floor to soak up the water. Kuerig in the room is a nice touch but ours didn't work (but was replaced once I called). There is a patio on the 1st floor around the pool but it doesn't have access to the pool. Note: rooms by the pool will hear a lot of pool noise at night!
Amenities -- My daughter enjoyed the scavenger hunt and free cookie and both movie nights but I was disappointed in the movie night at the pool. The screen was tiny and only 20 or so chairs could watch the movie...luckily we were there early. It was cold out so hot chocolate and coffee would have been welcome instead of cold drinks. You must take a shuttle to the beach...but towels, beach chairs, sand toys, etc. are all available at the beach for no charge. Although cold, we enjoyed searching for shells and sanddollars each day. Beware -- nights are cold so take a jacket!
Parking -- Self parking is $25 a day. Steep price but easy access to rooms as parking is under each building.
On my next trip to San Diego, I won't stay at Loew's or Coronado Beach. It's just not worth the money. For an adults only trip, I would stay in the Gaslamp District. For a family trip, I would choose another property inland.
