I chose Loews based on the great reviews and close proximity the Marriott where the conference I was attending was. The hotel is in a convenient location. The deluxe king was a good size. Clean, but a little dated. Room felt a little damp (but is WAS very humid out this week). Room service/food was VERY good. My only complaint would be the noise level. I asked for a quiet room...it was tucked in a corner away from the street. There was a very loud family with kids next door and I could hear every word coming through the vent near the closet. There is no insulation from the noise in hallway either. I slept with ear plugs, so it was ok. I have kids...I know how hard it is too keep everyone quiet. Hotels can be exciting for them. :) Not sure I would stay again only because I would prefer to stay attached to where I am conferencing. Staff was very friendly.
