Living High At The Loews

Let's just put it out there...we're total hotel snobs; Not in a bitchy way but in a "we're spending good, hard-earned $$$ so let's see your A-game" kinda way   If it's not impeccably clean, remarkably staffed, perfectly appointed or sensationally situated, we're OFF, faster than a prom dress.  As you know, finding all that in a kid-friendly environment can be a challenge.  Good thing our getaway to the Loews at Coronado Bay √ all the boxes.  Swanky, not exactly, but there's literally something for the whole family...grandparents, parents, kiddies and even pets.  So, if you're looking for a last minute chance at summer, the rates are still HOT ($200 for a standard room - ask about their special AAA, Senior Discounts etc.) and the vibe, super COOL.  HML's recommendations below: GOTTA TRY

OMG BEDS! - Dreams are that much sweeter when you feel like you're sleeping in the clouds.  Loews nails it w their Stearns & Foster Luxury Plush Euro Pillowtop Mattresses.  Don't trust me, look here :)

IN-ROOM COFFEE MAKER -Keurig coffeemaker with gourmet coffee.  HML considers this a necessity, not a luxury.  Thank Gawd they got it right!

DAILY BUFFET - On site at Market Cafe.  Full menu but the real steal here is the breakfast buffet complete with lox and bagels, omelet bar, pastries, fresh-squeezed juice, coffee and so much more  $25 per person and babies eat free!

JET SKIS: Easily one of the highlights of the trip.  Fast, fun, dare I say, kid-free??  Loews has tons of water-sport rentals...Jet Skiis, standup-paddleboards, boats, kayaks, you name it.  Definitely a stand-out for the property!

HERB GARDEN - There's something so satisfying to see a fully-bloomed herb garden right outside your guest room.  The flavorful food proves those fresh-grown greens are put to serious use.

KIDS CAMP - So you Haute Mommies can have a little time off.  Living Coast Discovery Center has partnered with Loews Coronado Bay Resort with the new Loews Go Wild! Kids Camp. Kids ages 5-12 can discover San Diego through nature hunts, arts and crafts, beach exploration and games, animal interactions and more as amazing native wildlife comes to life.**Available for a full-day 9am-5pm ($85 including lunch) or half-day 9am-noon or 1-5pm ($50 or $60 including lunch.) Call 619-424-4000 for reservations and further information.

CHOCOLATE TACOS - The relatively guilt-free finish to everyday.


THE KIDDY POOL - Call us cray cray but that many kids in one wet place, ummm no thanks.  We think we'll sit this one out.  Truth be told, Gibson still ♥ it.
