Stayed here for three (3) nights in August. (2nd - 5th). Very nice hotel. Had a room w/ balcony and two double beds. Check-in was a breeze; everyone very accomodating. The room was clean, furnishings new. No funny smells. There were three of us sharing the room and we had plenty of space for our things. Service in the room was good (fresh towels every day). Hotel is right on beach. The pool had a few too many kiddies for my taste. They run a kid's club as well which seemed nice but this being a girl's getaway I could not appreciate it. Other than that, service by the pool was good, staff was upbeat and friendly. And although sometimes crowded staff goes out of their way to find chairs and accommodate as soon as possible. Loews is also within walking distance of just about everything (shopping @ Lincoln Road/restaurants/movies/clubs). So don't necessarily have to spend too much money getting around. Didn't use the spa other than to leave but it looked great and the showers were amazing!
