“Loved Loews!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2010

Loews' location on the south end of Collins Avenue simply can't be beat! We enjoyed being right on the beach and a few blocks from the shops on Lincoln Rd.

Checkin was fast and easy, and the staff was very welcoming. I really did feel like a special guest. The front desk associate from checkin approached me three days later in the lobby to ask about our stay. It was a nice touch that she remembered my name and travel plans. This is a high service hotel and they will pamper you if you let them.

We stayed in a deluxe rotunda room in the main tower and it was clean, fresh and spacious. We had a comfy king size bed, a desk with two chairs, a small sitting area and a wall of windows. The bathroom had two sinks and a separate tub and shower. All of the advertised amenities were there and were fine. Some reviewers seem surprised that there is no microwave or refrigerator in the room, so it is a must to read and research before you book.

The huge pool at Loews was awesome, but we chose to spend more time relaxing on the beach. The crowd was classy and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. The chairs and umbrellas were worth every penny. So relaxing!

Enjoyed the coffee/breakfast bar in the lobby and the breakfast buffet and dinner at Prestons. Didn't try Emeril's.

LOVED: the 24-hour pool with great WiFI, the immaculate landscaping, the visible, yet understated security detail (didn't mind showing my room key periodically to gain access to the pool), the helpful ladies at the business center who wrapped/shipped my packages, the sheer number of well-trained, friendly employees who were just waiting to assist you.

I definitely recommend Loews as a hotel choice in MB. I think it would appeal to a wide variety of people. Now, if you want to stay in a boutique hotel or have bustling nightlife in your hotel, this is not the place for you. If you cannot stand being around different types of people, then South Beach is not for you - period. In my opinion, no hotel can please everyone 100% of the time, but this place comes pretty close. We cannot wait to go back!

This was the best hotel I have been to .....

After a disaster stay at the strand (see my other review) we came here for the remainder. It was amazing... the rooms, the staff, the pool, the location.... it was a dream!

Stay here... it is a little pricey, but worth it!

Just checked into the Loews South Beach today and am totally dissapointed. The rooms are fairly well kept, but more like a 3 star hotel. The biggest dissapointment is the pool area. Lots of guest are coming into the pool area who are not staying at the hotel. Security lets some in without a room key. Also, grown women were posing for photos on the water fountain in revealing swimsuits and pool staff did nothing. We have been coming to South Beach for the past 10 years or so. The Loews has certainly changed and not to the good. The pool area is no place for anyone with children, values or morals. Security needs to make sure only paying guest get into the pool area.

Hotel exceeded all expectations, including price. Everything was fairly dialed in from restaurants to pool service to beach service. The facility is very very nice, pool great, beach spectalar. Easy walk to great restaurants. Water was 75 degrees and you could see your feet. I'm used to high prices but this was a new level of high. Be prepared. Sat down and had three appetizers, four banana strawberry daquiris and a couple of kids drinks and the bill was around $140. Pool lounges are free but you'll pay about $60 a day for a few chairs and and umbrella at the beach. Lunch for four will hit $100 in a blink, Water is free but drinks cost about $10 each. My first cheap american beer was $10 after tip. It was worth it but only if you're prepared for it.

This was a pleasantly memorable experience. From the complimentary lemonade to the complimentary beach towels, this hotel was first class and first rate. The grounds were lovely, the pool immaculately kept. Beach access was easy and the view from our room overlooked the ocean. I would stay here again in a minute! I loved the toiletries. The room was on the small side but who spends time in a room in Miami? The South Beach location was excellent. Walking distance to all the deco hotels, trendy pool bars of other hotels and main drags. Plenty to do in the immediate area.

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!

Stayed for 3 nights, really loved this hotel, The rooms were very nice, spacious and spotless. All the staff in the hotel were really helpfull. The pool area was amazing, really relaxing and the beach was right next to it. Hotel is in a great location, bars and restuarants just 5 minute walk. Would definitely stay here if I go to Miami again.
