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: http://www.loewshotels.com/coronado-bay-resort/ 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.
WE CAN LIVE WITHOUT
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.
