“Star Struck in South Beach!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013 via mobile

My friends and I went to Miami for girls weekend. We are in our late 30's; past the "stay anywhere, it's Miami" phase. Lowes was the perfect choice for us. We had a room with 2 beds and a pullout. The pool was amazing. We saw the Dallas Mavericks - including Mark Cuban at the pool hanging out! There was a steel drum band, great drinks, and plenty of chairs. Also, they supplied fruit flavored water and tanning lotion. We were close enough to go to Ocean Blvd at night and return to the luxuary of our hotel; when ready. I don't want to stay anywhere else.

My husband and I stayed here for a short getaway over new years eve. It was fantastic, we had such a great time eating at all the local restaraunts along Ocean ave, shopping, and of course going on on NYE. Not to mention Emeralds located inside the hotel is AMAZING! The pool service was fantastic, we literally lounged by the pool all day and was waited on hand and foot. the hotel staff were good. The rooms, were very nice and clean, which comfortable mattresses and linens. I would stay at a lowes again.

Beautiful hotel in downtown Miami Beach. The pool is awesome, just make sure you get down there early to get a good seat. All of the food and drinks are top quality and priced accordingly. The staff is the best part of the hotel, they all are very professional, courteous and willing to do whatever it takes to make your trip memorable. The room was nice and generally clean but not updated recently and could have used a refreshing and a very thorough cleaning. The location is within easy walking distance of the Lincoln Road Mall and Ocean Drive. September and October are great months as it is a little less crowded and the weather is great. Overall a wonderful vacation spot.

Room Tip: Grand King room with ocean view has excellent vistas and a balcony to enjoy the view

Loews is a beautiful hotel. I was there for a business conference. From the time I arrived the service was top-notch. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The pool area was very nice with direct access to the beach. There were more kids than I expected though. I gave it 4 stars because I had some problems with my air condition. I had to call maintenance twice and ultimately changed rooms. Other than that I would highly recommend the hotel.

This is an excellent hotel. It is very family friendly, which we appreciated, as our toddler was welcome everywhere. He loved the candy shop in the lobby, the pool and shop with all of the beach/pool toys, and each restaurant brought out sippy cups for his drinks, which was a nice touch. The rooms were great -- clean, stylish, and comfortable. The beds were exceptionally comfortable, the television entertainment was great, and the refrigerator was well stocked (but costly, of course). The staff was great, particularly our waiter at Preston's restaurant, Andrew. It seems such a simple thing, but his friendliness, professionalism, and knowledge of the menu really made our night a great one. In fact, most of the staff at the Loews was pretty great, though Andrew really stood out.

We, also, rented a cabana at SOAK, their air conditioned poolside rooms that can be used during the day that feature a couch, television, bathroom and mini-fridge (a really great investment if you're traveling with children and don't want to run up and down to the room for naps, etc.). It's about the cost of another room though.

Now, unfortunately, onto the cons, it felt a bit like the hotel charged "extra" for everything. We were paying for two rooms and the cabana, and so we were surprised that we had to pay additional fees to tap into the internet. Don't all modern hotels now offer free wi-fi?

Also, unfortunately, their food is a big disappointment. Though the waiter Andrew at Preston's was excellent, the food was not. It was very mediocre, which was a surprise, because it was expensive! We tried it for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and it never improved. If we stayed here again, we would avoid the restaurant altogether.

Finally, their more casual breakfast revolves around a Starbucks Coffee shop, where everything is served on paper and plastic plates. It seemed so wasteful to throw everything away, when they certainly have the capabilities to serve it on real serving ware.

All that said, I recommend this hotel, just hope the food improves, and they opt for real plates for breakfast!

Room Tip: If you're on vacation with family, choose adjoining rooms! It was so nice to just knock on the...

Dear BelleCalifornia,

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your recent experience to our hotel. Our close proximity to all that South Beach has to offer is one of our biggest attributes, and it is the local flair and nightlife that make Miami the destination it is. Loews in general is a family friendly brand as is was built on the principle of encouraging strong family interaction, by a strong family. We base our hotel values on providing guests with the utmost comfortable and welcoming experience possible. Our rates are competitive with other hotels of our caliber in Miami Beach, but do apologize if you felt that the prices were a bit high for your liking. We hope we can welcome you back again soon.

Already the arrival makes you feel welcome and at home. Check-in -at 11pm- smooth and friendly. The rooms offer a nice view to the beach and are well equipped.
Room service for breakfast is quick and friendly. The concierge team is fabulous. They sorted out a few issues for us for which I am very grateful. A good stay and we will be back.

Me and my husband stayed at the Loews for 3 nights in November. The Hotel is located on Collins Ave. along with many other great hotels. The location is very convenient to walk to Lincoln Ave with many great restaurants and shops. The pool area is very big and connects with the beautiful beach of South Beach. Yoy can't ask for more.
We had a Luxury One King Size room with normal size overlooking pool area and the beach, Very quiet and with wonderful bedding. The maid service was quick and efficiant. The AC works great and quiet.
The breakfast bufett is an highlight, they have a fresh juice station where the vegetable or fruit juice of your choice is prepared just for you. The pastry selection was big and of great quality, The fruit selection of freshly cut fruits included all kinds of berries, what was special.

- point: charge of 40 $ per day for valet parking (what adds up consideratly to the daily rate of the room) and long waiting time before they deliver the car, the first day we had to wait 20 minutes. They recommand to call 15 minutes in advance.

+ point: Happy hour till 8pm the bottle of Champagne, Moet for 60$ not a bad pice at all for a luxury hotel

Room Tip: I think choosing a room towards the pool and beach is better since Collins Ave is a busy road traffi...
