“Very relaxing atmosphere.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

We completed 5 night stay at Loews after extensive searching in the general San Diego area and overall this hotel was a solid choice. Upon arrival we were greeted by valet and doorman offered beverages and shown the front desk area. I originally booked a Luxury double but really wanted some more space while we were there and unfortunately nothing else was available. This was understandable as their annual Dog surfing competition was happening this week. Well up to the room and was standard double room size a nice furnished balcony large bathroom and a somewhat disapointing view. We went exploring and located the teen lounge, arcade, pool area, laundry and my kids loved the wonderful bird cage. Overall we had a wonderful stay at this hotel and loved the setting and beach across the street. Loews pool scene is great for kids/families and wish we would have spent more time there.

I do plan on returning to this property next September and we are all looking forward to spending quality time here.

Hotel:
Great location for relaxation and family time. The hotel is all on its own but that is what we wanted/needed.
Wonderful ocean within a 5 minute walk no car needed as they will take you over via golf cart.
Nice garden areas.
Complimentary laundry is on site.
Valet parking is available and they do a good job.
Top notch concierge.

Room:
Standard double.
Overall clean room but housekeeping missed a few obvious items daily for 5 nights.
Nice colors.
Nice bathroom.

Restraunt:
Nice lobby bar lounge.

Not so good's.
Booked a luxury water view and received a somewhat underwhelming view.
The prices for food in the café are insanely high for simple cafe food.
I was there 5 nights and the coffee barista let me know on my 5th day that coffee came with free refills why she did not tell me on day two is beyond me? 5-6 coffee's a day for our room this would have helped.

Room Tip: Top floor is a must. Complimentary laundry is on site. Coffee refills are complimentary at the l...

My wife and i spent 6 nights at Loews with a group of friends. The hotel complex is large with 5 buildings of hotel rooms plus some conference rooms; big pool area (3 pools actually - kid pool, family pool and adult pool); nice fitness facility; water sports service; good restaurants on property; very nice lobby bar with indoor and outdoor seating areas. Our group was able to negotiate a reduced room rate as well as free in-room internet access and free use of the fitness area.

The hotel is located on the quiet bay-side of the Coronado peninsula. It is a short walk, maybe 5 minutes to Silver Strand beach. We walked the beach 2 or 3 times every day. The bell hops will also give you and your family a ride to the beach on a golf cart if you like - and provide chairs and umbrellas.

Breakfast was good and reasonably priced. We usually had lunch by the pool - the crab cake sandwich was yummy. Wait staff around the pool were friendly. We went into Coronado or San Diego for dinner.

We rented Stand Up Paddleboards (SUP) at the water sports desk. They were $20/hr and we got a quick lesson that gave us confidence. The calm bay was a great place to try these out. We also took advantage of spinning class and beach boot camp - cost was $10 per person per class. The instructors were friendly and experienced. They also had bikes for rent.

They have a Starbucks in the lobby - open 24/7 - the friendly staff knew what we wanted for coffee after the second morning!

Room Tip: You will hear pool noise in rooms that over look the pool area.

Located at the southern end of the Coronado Island, access to the famous beautiful Pacific (Coronado) beach (use the tunnel to avoid walking across the 4 lane road), and views of downtown San Diego from some rooms. The staff are helpful and friendly. The rooms are clean offering excellent beds, extra pillows, plenty of towels and lanais. There is a fee for parking (both self-parking and valet) however you will need a car to get to downtown Coronado or anywhere else. This is a quality hotel we have enjoyed a couple times.

Room Tip: Upper floor with San Diego views

This resort offers a lot of options--however it is one of those "once you are there places" as it is a bit isolated from stores But if you are looking for a relaxing get-away, this is it--reasonable food for the Market Café which is open 24/7. As far as rooms, the small private villas or bungalows that line the waterfront are the best--avoid #7101 as it's large deck is exposed to parking lot and pedestrian traffic. Room 8101 is nice. Dog friendly too! Rooms are spacious, fairly clean and have nice decks overlooking the Bay.

Room Tip: Avoid 7101, 8101 is more private as is 8106.

We stayed at this Hotel at the start of June. Overall we found the Hotel and resort to be lovely,it's just a shame it felt like you was being ripped off for your money at every available opportunity. The room was a very nice size with a fantastic Bathroom and shower and the view wasn't too bad. What was annoying was the fact the room did have a built in fridge but you had to PAY a daily fee to use it ...$10 if i recall. Surely a fridge in a hotel room in this day and age should be included in the price of the room?? Also beware the "welcoming gifts" in the room...the lovely looking little boxes of nuts are actually $8 dollars each as are the bottles of water,the brand name escapes me now but we did see the same size bottles of the same brand for less than $2.50 in most of the local shops/supermarkets.

In general we found the prices of everything to be bordering on extortionate...$6.50 each for a cookie ice cream biscuit ( to put this into context we had a similar ice cream plus a large drink each at Seaworld, where you expect to pay over the top, for under $10)...Coffee from the take out place was $8...where even at the Hotel Del Corando it was $5.50....you get my drift here. Its a shame Hotels try to con you out of so much money as it would be nice to try their lovely looking restaurants but with the prices they were asking its just not justifiable.

The two big bug bearers, from our point of view was the $25 a day charge for self parking and the $10 charge for the Gym. I knew in advance about the car parking fee but even adding that to the cost of the hotel, the deal we got through Expedia was still considerably cheaper. Its just that given the location of the resort, you have to have a car to be able to access it, so you really do feel resentful pulling into the hotel every day when you return.I missed the daily charge for the Gym when making the booking, had I noticed that the gym wasn't complimentary then given the parking fee,and the location( not really on a beach of its own and the one on the other side of the main road wasn't particularly nice) we definitely would not of chosen to stay here.

It was quite a horrible feeling,to be staying in a hotel and to feel priced out of everything,that's not why you go away on holiday.

I would say to anyone that if you have money to burn, or the company are paying for your stay, then this would be a great hotel, but if you have an average budget,or kids that like a beach, then this is def not the hotel for you to stay out.

P.s....The adult only poor wasn't really adult only as everyday when we was around the pool their were always children in it,and at weekends they have a DJ playing music which frankly was just irritating.

We stayed at the Loews Coronado in March. The hotel is nice enough with a pretty view of the bay, but in my opinion it was in an out of the way location. If you stay here, you will need to have a rental car or plan on using public transportation. It is not any easy walk to anything, except an area of beach that doesn't have much going for it. Again, the hotel was nice, but I would prefer to stay inland where we could walk to restaurants and shops.

We thoroughly enjoyed our one night stay at this lovely resort. Everyone on the staff was very professional, friendly and helpful. The rooms are large with nice balconies. We stayed in room 1325 which has a very nice view (although distant) of San Diego and the Coronado bridge and, of course, Coronado Bay. Parking is located beneath the hotel with easy access to elevators. No need for valet parking unless you prefer it. There are several restaurants in the hotel, a quick market for snacks and sodas and small clothing store. We didn't eat at the hotel because we were only here overnight and wanted to try a Coronado restaurant. There's a very popular level walking/biking path nearby that runs the length of Coronado island. We've always wanted to use it, but haven't been fortunate to stay here long enough to do so. It's definitely in our future plans as I understand the hotel will arrange for bike rentals. If there is a downside, it would only be the fact that although the bathroom was spacious, the shower was tiny. But that's a small thing and shouldn't deter anyone from staying here.
