The San Diego International Airport (SAN) is approximately 30 minutes from the hotel, and provides the easiest access in/out of the Coronado Island area. If you plan to leave the property, you may wish to get a rental car, otherwise you can take a taxi, Uber, or shuttle. Once on property, it is simple to get a taxi or Uber. There is a shuttle service from the hotel to Silver Strand Beach and Downtown Coronado Village. No reservations are necessary. The Loews Coronado Bay Resort currently only has valet parking. The AGA has negotiated a 25% discount off the posted rate for our members.
