Loews Coronado Bay is a quick getaway from San Diego, just across the bridge from the city. This Southern California family resort offers travelers sunny beaches, newly renovated restaurants, three pools, a spa and great vacation packages.

There are 439 rooms and suites, but not all face the water. Ask for one of the Luxury Rooms with a balcony with scenic views of the Pacific Ocean. There are four categories of rooms, all with deep soaking tubs, high-speed internet access and plush linens. Vacationers receive 24-hour room service which you can enjoy on your private balcony.

Superior Rooms are more affordable and have garden views. Deluxe Rooms are a good option if you want a view of the water but don't need a balcony.

The 37 luxury suites are uniquely furnished and have separate bedrooms and living rooms. Ideal for families who want more space on vacation, the living room has a queen-size sofa bed and the bathroom has a Japanese-style deep soaking tub. From the balcony, you can look out over the bay and the city skyline. Connecting rooms are available, giving you even more room in your suite.
