“Wish I could have stayed longer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

I have the worst luck with San Diego weather - the marine layer always seems to show up at the same time I do - but this hotel's location made up for that. Views of the water from everywhere. Was here for a business meeting, and so didn't get to enjoy all the amenities, but the room was very comfortable and staff very accommodating.

I found this hotel through a Sunset magazine article about dog friendly hotels. Some dog friendly hotels "tolerate" dogs. Loews Coronado treats dogs as a guest! Checking in was a breeze. Staff were friendly the moment we walked in. They have treats for the dog. They provided us with dog bowls and a mat. I like that the hotel is away from downtown. It's quieter. The bathrooms need some updating. The shower is too small and the tiles need to replaced. The doorknob is broken. We had dinner at Mistral's and I like the small portions as I can try a lot of the dishes and they are all excellent, except for the ny steak. Overall, the staff (check-in, housekeeping, security, spa, restaurant) were very friendly.

Room Tip: Ask for a marina or bay view room

It was -16 with snow on the ground and broken pipes-- we still went on vacation to Coronado and are so glad we did . The Loews experience was fabulous all the way around -- beautiful location-some of the friendliest staff you will ever meet and fine food. If you like to exercise they have a nice fitness area and the pools are special. We like the location, close to San Diego and yet out of the hectic scene when you want some peace and quiet.

Room Tip: The 3 rd floor in building 5 provides a great view of the area and bay.

We came upon this property by chance on Dec 23rd and rapidly switched our stay from another nearby hotel where we would have spent a disappointing Christmas, at best, with our doggies/children. We were welcomed with open arms by Robert Spicer, Guest Services pro par excellence.
Our room in Building 4 had a perfect view of the bay, and easy access to the outside where there were two grassy pet exercise areas, all clean and landscaped.

Our puppies were also treated like royalty, receiving bowls and treats upon arrival. We tired them out every day in the neighboring dog park (Coronado Cays). What a find: and no sand to clean off them! "Tired dogs are good dogs" as the saying goes...

We are part time travel agents and travel the world. We are Marriott Elite Members, and have also stayed at The Del (ugh- the crowds!), but this is the best, most scenic, most relaxing and most welcoming property in the area.

No property is perfect, and especially in this expensive area you need to pay a lot. Granted, some rooms need a bit of upgrading. However, Loews consistently delivers great value and service, and for pet lovers, no compromise. Coronado is no exception.

Keep it up, Loews!

We stayed at Loews over Christmas and a few days after. The first thing we noticed was how friendly and accommodating the staff was. We had to wait a few minutes in line when we checked in, but other than that, no complaints.
For a pet friendly hotel (and they do mean friendly) there wasn't the usual smell that we've experienced at other pet friendly hotels.
Our room was very nice and comfortable. We didn't dine on the premises because we were visiting our son and daughter-in-law who live a short distance from Loews.
I would recommend this to others and will stay here again.

Loved our stay at Loews. The staff helpful and it was pet friendly so we brought our dog. Coronado is one of my favorite spots and Loews did not disappoint.
The only downside was how far it was to town.
I would not recommend eating in the bar. The service was slow and food so-so.

We spent Christmas Eve and Christmas Day at Loews Coronado Bay Resort.

We decided to go to San Diego for Christmas and choose Loews as we wanted to stay on Coronado Island.

Upon arrival the staff where very friendly and efficient, explaining everything that we needed to know.

Our room was really good and a great size with a balcony.

We had taken our dog with us (a medium size dog) and within a few minutes one of the staff arrived and delivered us a bowl and treats for the dog.

We had breakfast both days on the patio - food and service great.

We decided to have dinner at the hotel on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day in the Mistral restaurant. I can honestly say that the food and service was fantastic. The staff were very attentive and the food was awesome.

Both nights we had drinks in the lounge area and it was very lovely.

The sports facilities were excellent. The tennis courts were out of order for NYE but the hotel had arrived for some neighbouring courts to be available (floodlight) and they took us there but hotel car. We also took part in the yoga class on Boxing day which was great.

The hotel is super dog friendly. If you have a dog that you want to take with you, this is the place to go.
