My sister and I just returned from a weekend stay at the Loews! After haveing several issues with another hotel and our rental car place we arrived and finally felt like we were on vacation.
Hotel- The hotel is gorgeous. The grounds are well maintained. Check in was fast and easy. We were checked in By Christine the night manager. After hearing the horror story of our rental car and "other hotel nightmare", Christine was kind enough to upgrade our room to a partial oceanview. It was already 2am in the morning and we were beat. On the next day concierge rang our doorbell with a lovely fruit platter and fresh cold waters. (note the waters alone are $10 per bottle). Enclosed was a personal note from Chrstine. She went way above and beyond to make our stay a pleasant one. The entire staff was absolutely amazing. We also worked with LUIS at the front desk. Very Very Nice! He is a keeper and an asset to LOEWS.
Rooms- The rooms were immaculate.. We had a nice balcony. Each room has a Keurig coffee pot, robes all toiletries.. Loved it! The beds were so comfortable. Not one complaint about the room. We were on the 6th floor. Great View!
Hotel Down side- Everything at the hotel is extremely expensive. No matter what you buy whether it would be a soda, coffee, ice cream cone, a gratuity service charge was added on. We ordered room service at 3 am when we checked in. We got ckn fingers and fries, a small pizza pie, two waters and two sodas. The bill was $79. The next day we got a pina colada and a mud slide going to the beach. That was $45. I thought we were on candid camera and it was a joke.
Beach-The water was so nice. I felt like I was in the Bahamas. Nice white sand and crystal clear water. The hotel had staff who helped with our beach chairs. They were $10 a day per chair but worth it and nice and comfotable. The staff on the beach were also very courteous. Tommy our server was great!!!! It was hot and these guys must have made over 100 trips back to the pool bar. They work very hard! It's amazing to see how some other guest take advantage of them.
Nightlife- My sister and I took a walk down to Lincoln Road for dinner. Ate at Bella Cuba. Didnt really like it. It is more of an authentic place. We should have went with the more comercialized cuban food. Gloria Estefan has 3 places there and YUCA on Licoln Rd looked really nice. We weren't into the nightlife as much. It seemed to be a much younger crowd and it really was not our scene. Been there done that!
Our short weekend there overall was a great stay at the Loews. The extended our check out until 2pm and then allowed us access to their Elemis Spa for $10 pp to shower and get ready for airport. This was great. We had use of the Jacuzzi in spa, their showers were stocked with all Elemis shampoo, conditioner and soaps, razors, creams, basically anything you need. It was worth every penny.
Great Stay Great Hotel but pricey! Thank you again Loews!
