Centered between the Pacific Ocean and Coronado Bay, Loews Coronado Bay epitomizes the Southern California lifestyle. The property has just completed a redesign of its lobby, Bay Terrace, Cays Lounge, Market Café and Market-to-Go. Taking full advantage of the resort’s waterfront location, the new design artfully combines San Diego’s sun and surf with the casual charm of southern California.

Coronado itself, with beaches, fishing, historic architecture and atmosphere is uniquely situated as an island just across the water from a reborn downtown San Diego.
