“Wonderful gym and relaxing pool”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

The Loews is where we stay during the craziness of Art Basel Miami. It feels a bit like a refuge because there is never a party at the pool, thank god, so it is a relaxing place to hang out. The gym is great and it looks out onto the pool area and beach beyond. They have a few classes and the women's dressing room has a steam room, hot tub and calming room. I have never had a massage or facial at the spa there, but I heard it is decent.
The music everywhere drives me a bit nuts, it is a little too mainstream rock and is even piped into the elevators in the main building and out of the bushes. The staff is friendly and professional. The rooms are a good size. I always end up having a drink with a friend or colleague at the porch on the side of the hotel, the service is efficient and fast. Maybe not the most romantic or elegant, but definitely a dependable spot in Miami.

Room Tip: If you like it calm and don't mind stairs, ask for the St. Moritz tower. Some rooms have balc...

My wife and I made reservations here for the recent Miami Basel Art Fair. Everything in South Beach was full. This is a large hotel in a convenient location in South Beach. The reception desk on check-in was efficient,but at check-out was undermanned and required extra time to check-out.
Our room on the 4th floor was spacious and had a city view with balcony,which we did not use due to the heat and sun. The bed and pillows were comfortable. The bathroom has a shower only. It was clean and functional. Towels were plentiful. The only real complaint was the ambient noise from the hallway,(doors slamming,voices easily heard outside,cleaning staff etc.),water noise from toilet & shower from room above,and the poorly functioning air conditioning,(it shuts-off when you leave the room,therefore it is hot in the room when you return).
The Sushi bar in the lobby area may have good food but was very small and unappealing and overpriced. The Preston Restaurant was more pleasant outside. The rotisserie chicken was good,but the tomato soup was not. Drinks were fine.
Overall a good stay as long as you do not equate price with what you receive in return.

Room Tip: Our room was near the elevator and was noisy. View of the city only.

This well maintained hotel has it all. The location near Ocean Drive is near a lot of the fun restaurants without having to put up with party noise all night long. There is a gorgeous pool and nearby access to the beach. Security is attentive without being oppressive.

Room Tip: better value facing west-you can still see water without the extra expense

I stayed here on business the first time and found the hotel and resort to be simply excellent. My wife accompanied me for the secound time and i was able to enjoy South Beach and Miami so much more. This is a world class experience. The grounds and facilities are almost bey9und words. If you come to Miami and seek a fine extablishment, this is it. You will not be disappointed. Their restaurant is Emmeril's ......it's supurb.....drinks by the pool.....too much fun.....and you can walk on the beach in seconds.....

Room Tip: Get a room with a view of the Ocean. You can easily walk around South Beach from here to take in t...

What a gorgeous hotel! And the staff here are amazing! Every single person who works here is so friendly and they go out of their way to do anything for you. Our room was very nice. We had a ocean view which I would highly recommend. Anything below that one isn't as nice. My only suggestion is for the rooms to all have a mini fridge. Only the highest price rooms have them or you can request one for $30 a night which is outrageous! All hotels have a mini fridge in the rooms, it's the standard. I would expect the same at loews and really suggest they change this. Especially since the room where the ice machine is smells like a dumpster, really badly! I almost threw up every single time I went to get ice.... I recommend you eat outside of the hotel for everything. It's extremely pricey for anything there. The pool is very nice. Very big pool and lots of chairs. Of course the beach is amazing! Loews has chairs, umbrellas, and cabanas you can rent. It's definitely worth it. We rented chairs every time and they are soooo comfortable! Worth the money. People walking around offering tanning oil, frozen fruits, and servers that you can order food from nautilius. Their food is amazing! Very expensive but taste so good. I recommend you request a room in the main tower and not the st mortiz. The st mortiz is the second building and it was not built with the original building but was an old hotel that loews but and remodeled.you can tell its older as its not as nice as the main tower. They tried to make it as nice but its not and the walls are very thin in the st mortiz. We were in the main tower and it was beautiful. You do have to pay for everything here, even wi fi and the gym. They ate $10 each per night and they have valet parking for $38 a day, take the walk and park your own car. The a garage on the corner of Collins and 13th and also 2 garages right across the street on 16th before you get to Washington ave. 2 of the garages are $20 a night and 1 is $16 a night. Definitely worth the small walk.

Room Tip: Main tower only, full ocean view

I just got back from a weekend stay at the Loews. Overall, it was a fine hotel with very little negatives. The rooms were clean and the beds and bedding comfortable. I wish I could say the sleep was perfect, but the walls seemed very thin to me, unless it was just a noisy group of people coming in at 5:30 am. The location is perfect because it's directly on the ocean, and next to Lincoln Road and Ocean Blvd. A car is not necessary. The one drawback is the pool area. It gets very crowded so you need to get there early to get chairs. There is a small section that gets sun all day, otherwise it's mostly shaded because of the towering hotels nearby. If you want sun, your best bet is down on the beach. You need to pay extra for chairs on the beach but apparently all of the hotels do that.

This was the second time this year that I've stayed at the Loews, and probably the fifth time overall. Each time, I leave feeling very refreshed and appreciative of the oasis the property provides in the sea of energy that is South Beach. The property is close enough to everything, and we walked wherever we wanted to go.

One thing that stands out for me at the Loews is the quality and quantity of staff! South Beach in general is not known for over the top service, but at this hotel there is a noticeable focus on customer service. Be it the attentive pool staff or the presence of staff in the lobby, you are never left without someone to assist with any questions or directions.

Room Tip: Stayed in the Luxury King, had partial oceanview with a balcony, great view!
