“Bathrooms need updating”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2008

I just returned from three nights at the Loews Coronado. The common areas were pretty and the rooms were quite large, with comfortable beds and flat screen TVs. However, the bathrooms desperately need updating. The showers were moldy and had acrylic bases, old metal sides and the bath floor had cracked old tile--looks like from mid-1980's. They did not fit in with the flat screen TVs and newer decorations in the room. It looks like they ran out of money in a renovation.

Also, I arrived after 11 pm when I checked in and there were no bell men on duty. I had to carry my own luggage to my room, which was quite a hike from the lobby. The hotel is very spread out.

I was there for a conference and noticed that the space did work well for the meeting. The food served at the meeting was well done. However, I had mixed experiences in the hotel restaurant. One breakfast, I ordered the french toast and received a plate of toaster french toast--very disappointing and unappetizing. At lunch I ordered salmon two ways and it was delicious.

The spa was excellent. I had a great massage. I would go back, but hope they re-do the bathrooms first.

My sister and I went to Coronado for the weekend. Priceline gave us a great deal on Coronado Bay, price $129.00 per night, hotel tax and resort tax....add an unexpected &40.00. Arrived at Airport and caught a shuttle to Coronado, $16.00. Arrive at hotel and realize that it is about 5 miles away from anything. Hotel has complimentary van transportation to downtown Cornanado but it only runs until 5:00PM. All in all the hotel was lovely, don't forget the swimming suit. The pools are great and heated, hot tubs are wonderful. Be sure to wear your robe to the hot tub. We did not eat in the hotel but menu's looked good and somewhat comprable to what was in town. This resort was very scenic. Boats, a harbor and across the street a beautiful beach with marvolous sunsets. We did get up early one morning and caught the trolley tour, worth every penny. However, we did not come back to Coronado until 5:00PM and the we had to catch van to hotel. I would have ilked a bit more time to eat dinner in Coronado. All in all it was great and a better than typical beach hotel.

Stayed here for 3 nights as part of our honeymoon last September. We loved the place so much that we didn't leave the hotel for 3 days. The room was beautiful, the sea view was fab and the room service was just what we were looking for. It was very breezy when sun bathing - don't know if that was the weather at the time or the location of Coronado but we still enjoyed it.

It took 3 phone calls and 2 hours for them to deliver the promised milk and cookies from our Loewsfirst membership program. I should never have to call 3 times and wait such a long time, especially from this brand. Staff was completely unresponsive.

  • Liked — Pool was just right -- even in wintertime.
  • Disliked — Service was poor.

Recently stayed at this hotel for 6 nights, and thought it was a nice hotel, but not great. The decor was nice (lobby, bar and rooms) and I had a large bathroom (soaking tub and separate shower), but it took about 7-8 minutes to get warm water in the shower every morning and the shower pressure was weak. The service overall was good, but when we first arrived the bell boy just stood at the bell stand and didn't attempt to help us with our luggage, until we called him over. I also ate at the restaurant twice, and the food was quite good, so no complaints there.

The property is kind of isolated, so if you don't have a car, you will be paying for a lot of cabs (the downtown area of Coronado really isn't within walking distance, and downtown San Diego is about a $35 cab ride) so keep that in mind. Like I said, it's a nice hotel, but overall I would probably stay somewhere else closer to town.

I stayed at the Loews for a business trip this week. It was a nice hotel with a nice view.
The hotel is isolated and away from shopping and restaraunts.

The rooms are nice with a nice bathroom with a soaking tub. One downside, you can hear your neighbors next door and above you.

I was here for a business trip and overall enjoyed the hotel.

All of the hotel impressed me; the rooms, restaurants, and beach. I would say the pools could have been a little bigger. The bathrooms were gorgeous. I would recommend a car if you are planning on going to Sea World or San Diego zoo. We weren't planning on getting a car, but the after the drive from the airport we decided to get a car just for a day. The concierge was so helpful, it was so easy to rent a car. Great place!
